About Adam
Hello! My name is Adam, and I'm excited to be a part of the Take Lessons team. I am an Actor, Singer, Voice-Over Artist, and Teacher in New York City. Originally from the St. Louis area, I moved to NYC in 2004 to pursue a career in theatre. Along the way, I discovered a love for teaching. I have taught private lessons and classes in a variety of areas, including Acting, Voice, Singing, Musical theatre, Dialects, Shakespeare, and more. As a working professional actor, I am very familiar with the demands of the industry and the dedication it takes to have a career in the performing arts. One of my goals as a teacher is to instill a sense of dedication in my students. And of course, as I understand the personal nature of acting & performance, my main goal is to help each student find and strengthen his/her unique & personal talents.


I have been taught & inspired by many gifted teachers/performers over the years, and I always hope that I can pass along what I have learned to other students. I received my MFA in Acting from the Actors Studio/New School (NYC), and I received my BA in Theatre & Vocal Performance from McKendree University. I also have training from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC and the Old Vic Theatre in London.

Because I have been taught a variety of techniques and styles, my teaching style combines all of those techniques. There are many ways to approach the art of performing, whether it be acting, singing, etc. And it is most effective for me as a teacher to provide you with as many techniques as I can.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
First and foremost, I believe in working with you to create a relaxed environment where you can learn and grow as a student and performer. Performing (acting, singing, etc.) is about taking risks and looking inside yourself to create something bigger than yourself. Because of that, I always begin each lesson with some sort of relaxation or technique to get you focused.

I ask a lot of questions during lessons---some of the questions may not have one definitive answer. But I ask you these questions to get you to consider various things, think, ponder, explore, and hopefully, DISCOVER.

Because all students learn in different ways, and we all have our strengths as learners and performers, my lessons are different for each individual student.

But you can always count on:
-Learning a variety of techniques to help you with your craft.
-Beginning with relaxation and other exercises to get you released, focused, etc.
-Each lesson being a building block: We build upon what we learned in the previous lesson.
-Combining technical exercises (which I promise are always FUN!) with practical performance pieces (songs, monologues, etc.)

Our goal together will be to unlock YOUR OWN, PERSONAL TALENTS. And then, we will work to fine-tune those talents.

It is my hope that you will continue your desire to perform and share your talents with others. Also, I hope that you will develop a desire for life-long learning and that you'll eventually want to pass along your knowledge and training to others.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide some materials (in terms of handouts, music, scripts, etc.). I expect you to provide additional music, which will be discussed. Also, if I travel to you and our lesson requires a piano, I would expect you to provide that. Thank you!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre/Acting. I am a firm believer in Method Acting Techniques, including sense memory---the result of these techniques is to bring more of the performer's persona into the performance itself. Therefore, I use exercises to enhance these techniques. I believe that the final performance should be creative and expressive, yet realistic.

I also specialize in Dialects/Accents----coaching clients (including Actors and Voice Over Artists) in a variety of accents/regional dialects, using an array of approaches and techniques (pitch, rhythmic variation, IPA/Phonetics, phrasing, etc.).

Gain optimal vocal alignment with Classical and Operatic technique. Emphasis is on flexibility/strength, extension of vocal range, and beauty of tone.

About Julia
Julia has been teaching private voice for over 10 years. In 2006, she opened her private voice studio in Austin, TX where she completed her Graduate studies at The University of Texas. She now resides and teaches in Bergen County, New Jersey. Her students have received many honors including scholarship awards for colleges and universities, awards for solo and ensemble competitions and Texas All-State Choir, leading roles in musicals, and recording contracts! Additionally, her students perform in a wide range of genres -from National tours, Regional theater, to lead singers in rock bands. She is dedicated to seeing her students grow and succeed as vocalists and performers.

As a singer, Julia has most recently been seen as Donna Elvira in Opera Orlando's production of "Don Giovanni", Roxanne Conti cover in the off-broadway produc
tion of "Figaro90210!", and Musetta in Wichita Grand Opera's "La Boheme". Previous seasons have seen Julia as Berenice in Little Opera Theatre of NY's "L'occasione fa il ladro", Lydia Larkspur in the NY Premiere of "The Rivals" with Bronx Opera, Violetta in "La Traviata" with the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and Helena in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with Opera Naples.

*** Lesson Details ***
What happens in a Lesson? In order to train your physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. So, the first part of the lesson will be focused on vocal exercises specifically tailored to YOUR VOICE and its needs. The second half of the lesson is the fun part- SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Rock, Country, Pop, Musical Theater, or Classical, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard. The student should provide a recording device, iPhone, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical and Broadway style singing, but have extensive experience in Contemporary Commercial Music as well. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the student is most interested in.

Learn how the pros do it!

If you want to learn pop, I'll teach you the same techniques used by Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger, and more... because I study with their teacher!

If you want to learn Opera, learn to tackle any audition, gig, or recording session just like Marilyn Horne did. I've got exercises from teachers at the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, and from Marilyn Horne herself to get you right on top of your game!

I've been singing professionally for 16 years. I've sung my own show at Carnegie Hall. I was Gaston in the national tour of Beauty and the Beast and I never missed one of our 326 shows. I can get you on the Gaston regimen in as little as one lesson.

Please message me with your availability and describe your goals before you purchase a lesson.

About Christiaan
Christiaan, former Gaston in the Broadway tour of Beauty and the Beast, was kicked out of opera school for singing jazz with Miles Davis' bassist but still went on to sing opera in Pavarotti's home town in Italy and work with opera legend Marilyn Horne and composer Jake Heggie. Now he's in New York studying with Lady Gaga's teacher and singing his own arrangements of Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, and John Mayer at Carnegie Hall while writing and recording pop songs in Nashville and the U.K.

About Amanda
I am a professionally trained opera/classical singer, and I LOVE to teach. I have more than 5 years of teaching experience working with students of all ages and levels in both New York and Los Angeles. I love bringing the gift of music to everyone, and truly believe that music heals and brings happiness to all who partake in their own musical journey. I also bring with me 5 years of experience working for an opera company in Los Angeles where I managed the education and community engagement department. Through this opportunity I was able to work with diverse groups of students to teach them about music.

My teaching technique focuses on giving my students the proper tools and techniques that they need in order to build their instrument and preserve their voice for longevity. I have a Bachelors degree in Music: Voice Performance and a Ma
sters degree in Voice Performance and Pedagogy. I have also taken several seminars on vocal health and development.

In addition to singing I also teach beginning to intermediate piano lessons. I have been playing the piano for many years. In fact it was my first instrument! I find that the piano is a wonderful way for students of all ages to really understand music as a language while learning an instrument simultaneously. I have a wonderful method and book that I use which I have found to be incredibly effective. I also teach and work with my students on their aural skills, pitch development and recall, music theory, and diction.

I am excited to meet you future student! Please don't hesitate to drop me a line. I look forward to having you in my studio!
Best on your musical journey -Amanda

My son Alexander was in 6th grade when he began to receive lessons from Amanda. She was able to get my son ready within 3 months for his audition to the Orange County School of the Arts. Thanks to her dedication and professionalism and my son's perseverance, he was accepted to the Classical Voice conservatory. She continued visiting our home on a weekly basis for four years. Amanda was always prepared with lessons which she pulled from music books that were appropriate for his age. She tailored his singing lessons in conjunction with his conservatory expectations. When Alexander was in 9th grade, she provided piano lessons as well. With piano lessons, he was able to practice his songs with more feasibility. It is with great admiration and respect that I highly recommend Amanda as a classical voice and piano teacher for she is an example of great talent and inspiration for the youth.

Amanda is not just an outstandingly talented singer (seriously) but also a gifted and inspiring teacher. As a beginner, I had no idea what to expect from my lessons, but she blew me away with her warm, fun, professional approach to singing. Her magic is that she is equally a scientist and an artist. She is a singing expert at the highest level, and she knows how to guide your technique with laser-focused, detailed feedback. When she is explaining abstract concepts, she does a marvelous job of breaking them down into understandable and concrete tasks for practice. Most importantly, she prioritizes healthy technique and you can trust her to protect the longevity of your voice. After singing with her for a little over a year, for the first time I have discovered my voice's natural, free vibrato, and I truly enjoy hearing what my own recorded voice sounds like. Amanda is the best. She will point you to the stars and help you reach for them. Call her!
