Jan is a fun and dynamic instructor whose patience and attention to the needs of her students has been instrumental in helping my daughter enjoy and thrive in her voice and piano lessons. While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!

Great instructor. My son felt totally comfortable with him and he's usually shy. Not only is he teaching my son to dance, but gives him total confidence.

CJ is very flexible with schedule, so this helps a lot as I'm always on the go. He is great with kids and has a lot of nice moves. We purchased more lessons and hope to continue.

CJ is a great instuctor. He is friendly, reliable, patient, punctual, and very talented. He helped me take my beginner dance skills to the next level. He is a creative genius; he was able to take my existing dance moves and build upon them. I can show him a move that I've been working on and, on the drop of a dime, he can show me several creative variations and ways to build on the original move. Some of the little pointers that I learned from him have been priceless.

I thought as a theatre teacher that I didn't have much more to learn. I was wrong. Vandi has given me the confidence to sing. I hid in the altos for years and she helped me find the wider range I was seeking. She includes great visualizations in her lessons which helps a visual learner like me. I have the confidence to trust my breath and sing in ways I never thought possible. She is a wonderful teacher. Take lessons from her!

About Amanda
Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator! I have taught nearly every subject in public schools from grades k - 12 as well as acting, musical theatre, dance and voice at the college level! I attended both SMU and TCU, graduating with a BFA and MFA in Theatre performance, dance, radio/tv/film production and Criminal Justice!

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!

Dance students can expe
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. We will practice technique as well as audition and dance call preparation. 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!

While the arts are my passion, a well rounded academic student is a must! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!

Alyssa is AWESOME! She coached me on an audition piece and her insight was invaluable. I booked the job and I'm sure it was in part because of the work we did together. She has a wonderful energy and a keen eye, and creates a safe, welcoming space to play and try new things.
