Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.
In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.
This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.
We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.
Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

We have had a great experience with Andrew teaching our daughter piano. He works great with kids and has a wide range of teachable skills. He organizes fun events for his students that showcase their hard work. I am really pleased with our decision to enroll our daughter in his program, she has a lot of fun and has learned a lot in a short amount of time.

With over 10 years of experience, I’ve worked with producers, directors, casting directors, and writers. I know what they’re looking for. Specializing in memorization, audition techniques, script breakdown, character development and visualization techniques, I use known methods to help the actor create their own technique. Classes are fun and dynamic. We’ll explore behavior, speech and movement and how it all relates to the human psyche. Let’s play!

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, jazz, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability. I have extensive stage experience and teach my students how to have confidence while portraying a character on stage.

About Benjamin

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

Ben - You can't expect to be an excellent singer over night

Me - Oh yeah I can (in my mind)

(end of lesson)

Me - I'm done (I quit)!

Ben - You're getting it; it takes time and practice (learning your voice).

Six month update: I am still very much pleased with my lessons with Ben. My confidence is growing and I'm actually starting to understand how to use my voice. I may not be where I want to be Yet, but I'm moving in the right direction; it takes time and practice.

Incredibly knowledgeable and cute right to the chase. Great for any student looking to progress quickly and start singing as soon as possible.

We kept calling him to our table at every opportunity to try to figure out his secrets. We never did! He is so good at what he does! This evening, out of the clear blue, my daughter and I started reminiscing about the cruise we took and the unforgettable magic performances Mushir provided. I googled his name and found him here! It's like MAGIC we found him! I hope you're doing well Mushir! The magic trick you did with your necktie still blows our minds!"

"I have worked with Randy directly for over 10 years professionally and there aren't enough good things I can say about him. First I must address our ease of communication. To speak to Randy for 5 minutes is to feel like you've known him your entire life. He instantly puts you at ease by giving off the vibe of your favorite relative. He truly has interest and concern for his students and wants only the best for them.
Speaking to his abilities, he has been a knowledgable member of the creative and musical communities for his entire life. His talents are wide reaching and numerous. He also teaches with worldly experience. Randy gives room for the student to figure things out for themselves while still providing the desired support needed for progress and growth.
Randy is a mentor of mine. After spending only a short amount of time learning from him, I knew that I was not only gaining superior knowledge and training but a lifelong friend.
I was lucky enough to grow up right down the street from his home, but we've also worked in studio and online.
Anyway you slice it:
You hit the jackpot by hiring this guy."
