About Maria
MISSION STATEMENT:

The mission of my studio is to create well-rounded, educated musicians who will always have a lifelong passion for the art no matter their long-term goals. I strive for my students to be:

(1) Lifelong learners who develop successful learning habits.
(2) Creative and critical thinkers who will become effective communicators.
(3) Responsible and respectful members of society who respect other cultures.
(4) Able to set short-term and long-term goals and be able to see them through to their success.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:

It is of the utmost importance that my students are well-educated in their chosen instrument; they must know and understand music and music-making. Students who can play are a dime a dozen, but students who understand the music they are playing are often hard to find. I teach students to kno
w music thoroughly, not just to “play.” I desire my students to comprehend elements of the score, to use their bodies effectively to make good sound, and to interpret music creatively and according to historical performance practices across all genres of music. Thus, I give students a purposeful education in technique, quality literature, performance and artistry, music theory, and music history.

Although students differ in ability and development, I maintain high expectations for our students. I expect attention and respect in lessons, faithful and diligent practice, careful adherence to instructions, and an “I’ll-do-my-best” attitude. If students regularly meet these expectations, then they will excel to the level that they are able. It is my joy to help students master their music, to do the best they can, and to strive for and achieve excellence.

Lastly, I want students to enjoy and appreciate their instrument, music, and music-making; and I know as as a teacher, I am very influential in making this happen. Students develop enjoyment of music by understanding music, experiencing success in music, being exposed to good and varied genres of music, and receiving instruction from a teacher who is enthusiastic and encouraging. It is my goal to provide all of these opportunities for students, and as a result their lives will be enriched as they enjoy their instrument.

My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.

Hi! I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. My students of all ages have something in common; they work. Wether your background is theater or film, comedy or drama, amateur or pro; You will learn to use the camera to improve your performance, make strong choices and connect to both your scene partner and the audience.

About Hunter
From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

Prepping an audition for an upcoming show or for admission into an acting program? Want to hone and develop your audition monologues (especially Shakespeare)? Just need a coach to help you take your acting to another level? Then let's get started, online or in person. I can help.

I've been working as a professional actor in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. I've performed with the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, ACT Theatre in Seattle, Book-It Repertory, Seattle Shakespeare Company, and Shakespeare Santa Cruz to name a few. I've also been the featured voice in voiceovers for companies like University of Washington Medical, Golden 1 State Credit Union, Microsoft, and Surface Pro 3. On Camera Credits include short films, industrials, and commercials for Taco Time, Tulalip Casino, and Washington Dental Association.

I hold a BFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an MFA from the Shakespeare Theatre's Academy for Classical Acting in Washington DC. My ...

About Jason
I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting. Performing with professional repertory companies like ACT Theatre, Book-It Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, I've gained personal knowledge of the art, craft, and business of being a working actor, which I will put to work for you, in a personalized one-on-one coaching session, either online or in person.

Here's how I can help.

SCENE WORK AND MONOLOGUES: Whether it's dusting off and refreshing monologues you've performed more times than you can count, or developing pieces or scenes for the first time for an upcoming stage or on-camera audition, we can break the material down togethe
r, work on the clarity of your choices and active objectives, and access your personal connection to the material so you'll be ready and confident with a one-of-a-kind performance that reflects the strengths you bring to acting and the story you want to tell.

SHAKESPEARE: Perhaps the most daunting of styles for a contemporary actor, we'll get down to the nuts and bolts of some of the most challenging (and rewarding) material. The famous soliloquies are famous for a reason and can certainly be intimidating, and more obscure material can seem thick and inaccessible. We'll chip away at the mystique of Shakespeare by digging in to the text and verse, activating the language with specificity, and cultivating your personal take on well-known characters or lesser known material they might not have seen before.

DIALECTS AND ACCENTS: From English to Irish to Southern American and beyond, a well executed dialect can be the edge you need to land (and play) that meaty role. I use a multipronged approach that involves ear training to develop an authentic sound, text analysis for clarity of sound substitutions (IPA Proficient), and exercises that pare away stilted and unnatural speech to cultivate an authentic sounding voice that will be your own.

VOICEOVER: I've been booking voiceover gigs on TV, radio, and the internet for over 10 years with clients like Microsoft, Liberty Mutual, UW Medicine, Tableau, Reno Toyota, and Golden One State Credit Union. I can offer tips and tricks of the trade, as well as techniques that can take your VO submissions to the next level and help you book these lucrative contracts.

Let's get started!

Jason has been an amazing coach for my incredibly active animated son. He is great at redirecting my boy when he has trouble focusing and provides immediate feedback to help my son make progress. We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family. Jason it a true professional and communicates beautifully with me. I am looking forward to continuing lessons for my son!

Jason previously worked with my teenage daughter and they made vast improvements in her acting skills and college audition. She was accepted into AMDA. Now he is working with my older daughter to help her get ready to audition at UW and get a working reel together. He is fantastic and really good with any learning differences or styles that might come up.

About Amanda
Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator!

Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!

ct to learn technique styles and combinations in accordance with the style of dance we are learning. Students will experience various forms of dance, warm ups and physical conditioning.

It is a goal to assist to students in their craft and guide them to achieve their personal goals within dance -whether that be stage or commercial dance!

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!

I specialize in pairing up performers with pieces that are right for their voice and level of experience.

About Devon
Hey There!
Acting has been my passion since I was able to move and speak. Helping others find their creative voice, and what makes them unique has been the cornerstone of what I love most about helping others share their talents.

Often my students are looking for assistance finding the right pieces, a new way of looking at their sides, need help with audition prep, and want to know what to expect when they walk into a room.

I take my job very seriously, and have successfully helped coutless students of al ages book gigs, and find confidence auditioning.

My style is fun-loving, and honest. If you need someone to give it to you straight, someone to champion your nervous child, or overall give you the confidence you need to slay your audition- I’m your Coach!

About Modesto L.

Close

Acting lessons with me are unique because they come from the experience I've had as a successful working actor with 25 years of experience in film, tv, theater and radio in the United States and Latin America.

Not only I can teach you acting techniques but the nuts and bolts of show business. These lessons will deepen your skills in the craft of acting. We'll cover in our sessions Acting Basics, Voice, Various Acting Techniques, Differences in acting for theater vs film, How to improve your audition skills, Self Tapes, Preparation and research for your shoot, Work Ethics and intricacies of the film Industry. Students will approach this through the analysis of films, scene work, interactive debate and reading assignments.

About Modesto
I’m a film, television, theater and radio actor and producer with a history of 25 years of uninterrupted work in Puerto Rico, the United States, Spain and Colombia. I began working professionally as a teenager and continued on to the Drama Department of the University of Puerto Rico, graduating with honors. I studied classical theater, physical theater and dance, and I’m fluent in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French. I lived in New York City for 8 years, working with The Public Theater and Circle in the Square. Welcomed by the Latino theater circuit of the city, I received several recognitions by HOLA Awards, ACE and ATI. I also hold a certificate in Arts Administration from NYU’s School of Continuing Studies.

My commitment to the Puerto Rican film industry has led me to work in more than thirty films in the island. Some include: An
imal, alongside Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard; Back in the Day, as acting coach for actor/rapper Ja Rule; Sol de Medianoche; El chata; Angélica; and Fistful of Dirt, the first Puerto Rican film invited to the Telluride Film Festival.

I’ve had the opportunity to play important roles of historical figures, such as composer Rafael Hernández and the legendary baseball player Roberto Clemente, a role I successfully reprised in the short film 3,000. Other theater credits include: Godspell, Hamlet, Medea and Infinito enquanto dure.

One of my most important roles was my interpretation of Pedro Knight (Celia Cruz’ husband) in the hit Off-Broadway play Celia: The Life and Music of Celia Cruz; which ran for over a year and traveled to cities such as Miami and Tenerife in the Canary Islands. I reprised Pedro Knight, from his early years this time, in the TV series Celia, produced by Fox Telecolombia and Telemundo, released in 2015. Celia has enjoyed great international success, and can currently be streamed on Netflix.

Likewise, one of my most-awarded performances is in La esclava blanca, the top-rated telenovela for Caracol TV, Colombia (2016). La esclava blanca has been sold to 28 countries, including Poland, the United States, South Africa, Panama and Puerto Rico. Netflix has also acquired streaming rights.

My latest project is the biographical television series based on the life of reggaeton singer Nicky Jam, El Ganador, produced by Telemundo and Netflix.

My acting workshops has been sold out everytime and students have started to work steadily after classes.
