We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Maria is by far the perfect person to start this journey with. Her knowledge is phenomenal, and I can't wait to keep growing in my singing abilities!!

Maria was teaching my daughter opera, she learned a lot and we'll seek her out again to continue. She is an expert in her field. My daughter loved her and everyone she encountered in the music industry wanted to learn how she learned this and how she learned that when we told them they said she had a good teacher. We'll be back Maria. Thanks for all you've shown her.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

I believe that acting is for everybody! Through acting, we grow our critical thinking abilities and analysis skills, as well as our ability to communicate effectively. Additionally, acting encourages self-confidence, empathy, and creativity. And of course, practicing a form of self-expression helps to blow off steam and decrease stress.

As an actor, I have experience with a variety of styles, including Shakespeare and Improv, and I am familiar with a number of methods, including Stanislavski, Meisner, Chekhov, Hagen, Alexander Technique, and Margolis Method. I believe in mind-body connection and building an actor’s toolbox for independent performers. I have taught actors of all ages and interests.

"As a successful working actor, he knows exactly what casting directors or working on which projects, what they are looking for, and more importantly how to get into the audition rooms.

His experience at Carnegie Mellon is unparalleled; he clearly knows how to strategically approach the text and then apply it to both on-camera work and stage work.

Lastly, he is currently filming and working on major projects; he is wonderful at sharing his experiences and talking through his own current learning experiences."

He is a busy man, but he always makes sure that he has time for his students. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to take up acting :)"
