Michelle G. North Hollywood, CA

Private lessons will tackle character development, scene analysis and breakdown, beats, creating strong choices, as well as camera technique for film/tv and/or stage blocking if the scene is for a theater audition or performance. Classes will always be tailored to the student's needs and goals.

About Michelle

Musician/Songwriter/Performer Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. ...

Spanish has always been difficult for me, but Michelle has helped me so much! She's the first Spanish teacher I actually look forward to seeing each time we have a lesson because she makes the lessons so much fun! She's very funny and easy to work with. Whenever I need to make a change to a lesson she always does everything she can to make it work. I've finally been able to raise my grade in Spanish after working with her!

At the risk of giving away my best kept secret, Michelle is THE BEST!!!

Not only is she an amazing teacher, she is an incredible talent, and awesome person. Her relaxed and nurturing nature enables you to feel super comfortable and excited to learn. She motivates you to try your best and focuses on your strengths, while building and improving upon your weaknesses.

I've taken singing lessons in the past, and after one class with Michelle, I realized, I hadn't learned anything! If you really want to learn in a positive and motivating environment, take classes with Michelle. Just don't sign up for my time slot...I called dibs and I'm going to be taking classes for a while! Lol. =)

About Megan

I am originally from North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been involved in music, theatre and dance since the age of 3. I also have worked with various professional children's theatre companies and run my own touring theatre company. I have been a Zumba instructor since 2011 and I have been a swimming instructor/lifeguard since 2003. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that learning anything new should be a fun experience. If it's not fun then you're more likely to get frustrated and quit. My teaching philosophy is that I want to know what inspires you and create lessons that will keep you or your children interested and having fun. I offer 30 and 45 minute lessons. During the first lesson we will figure out a personalized lesson ...

Great teacher to learn!

Megan is great to learn with. I play other instruments but I wanted to start learning the piano and how to read music. She was very patient and really enforced the importance of getting into the habit of practicing, even if it's just 15 minutes a day! I highly recommend her for piano beginner adults and children.

Violin
Patient, communicative and fun!

I played the violin years ago and decided to pick it back up again. Megan was very patient and was very communicative with how to help me. She also came up with very fun ways to keep me practicing. She worked very well with me as an adult but I've also seen her teach very young children and her patience and creative teaching shines with the young ones as well! If you're looking for a personable, fun teacher that inspires, Megan is the teacher for you.

Beginner- Introducing the novice actor to character development, memorization technique, and finding the joy in play.

Intermediate- Refining character development using physicality and vocal quality, introduce script analysis, finding freedom in creative choices.

Advanced- Pushing self-imposed limits to find courage in trying new creative choices, in-depth character analysis, finding subtlety and nuance in every beat.

About Vanessa

Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007. My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson. If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you. *** Lesson Details *** Whether you're ...

I Left My First Session SO EXCITED!!!

I didn't realize so much could be accomplished in an hour, but I left our first lesson with an understanding about where I'm at with my voice, what is special about my voice, and feeling really excited and encouraged with where my voice can go. Vanessa was VERY patient with me, as I'm very much out of practice, but it took her no time at all to pin point my trouble spots and she quickly had other suggestions if certain exercises didn't work for my voice. After our session, I drove away in my car just beaming and I couldn't stop singing. Can't wait for our next session!

Improv Acting · In studio
I've taken a few Improv classes with Wes, and let me say, they have been the most beneficial Improv classes for my career. Each exercise Wes used was not only fun, but helpful in strengthening my overall acting skills. He uses his knowledge to best benefit each student regardless of class size. His extensive knowledge of the craft can only help you, whether for stage or film. There's a sense of freedom that Wes helped me find in creating characters, navigating a scene, and preparing for auditions. I noticed incredible growth of my skills after taking just a few classes. I would highly encourage any actor to attend his class!!

Wesley is a fantastic teacher. His extensive experience with acting is immediately apparent in both his knowledge and skills. His ability as a teacher meant that in a sizable class I still received consistent attention. He makes the process of learning completely comfortable and enjoyable, and he has a lot to teach.
He's also hilarious, which never hurts.

Makeup · Online
High school theatre teachers are required to know a lot about the entire craft of theatre. . .but we can't know everything - and that's where Wes comes in. For me, Wes has coached Shakespearean speeches and taught a workshop on makeup for the stage. Both lessons were taught via FaceTime and were extremely effective. My students received top notch advice and instruction that was delivered in a manner that balanced professional, expert, and charming. . .they keep talking about Wes! Wes isn't just there for the lesson time, though. Like a great teacher should, he prepares in advance and follows up after. His attention to detail is excellent. I look forward to working with Wes in the future and recommend him without reservation and with enthusiasm.
Tara B. North Hollywood, CA

I've been acting for 10 years! I've been teaching this subject for about 3 years now. I love both tv/film and theatrical acting. There's a big difference and it's so much fun getting a student to master that difference! I let the student decide what they would like to work on, unless they want me to come up with it for them. But I try my very best to excel my student as much as possible to get them to become confident in their craft! I was trained by Lori Wyman, Harriet Greenspan, Paul Weber, Jeff Rose and Zadia Ife.

About Tara

I am an actress, singer, and dancer. I've trained in many styles of dance ever since I was three years old. I've done theater and television/film acting for 10 years. I've done many workshops and you can now look me up online! When I was in High School, that's when I started teaching kids dance and acting. I love the arts and I would love to share it with you!

I've danced with Tara in many musical theater productions where she was quick to pick up choreography and break material down to help others better understand and catch on to the movements. She is extremely educated in all forms of dance, and is very creative with her own choreography. She's extremely fun and spirited. Highly recommend!

Terrific teacher! Tara is a fantastic dance instructor. She's sweet and instructive, which makes you love learning from her. She choreographed multiple dance numbers in past theatre productions as well as dance classes I've been in. She has also helped me prepare my songs for 'The X Factor', making me understand my voice in multiple ways. I HIGHLY recommend you take lessons from her!!
