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.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** 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.

Adam is really super (I am only on my third lesson). He will make you feel comfortable and interact with you in a personable and dynamic way.

He is the perfect teacher if you want to improve your stage voice and pitch. Adam is the man if you have fame on your mind. Julia

If you are a little slow on the uptake, (like I am when I don't know the subject matter) you need to be brave and follow his directions in practicing techniques. Adam personalizes his lessons, but they could be more planned. They feel a little too unprepared.

Weehawken, NJ

View Full Profile

I have been a professional actress for most of my adult life. I have worked in film and theater and understand the many ways towards developing a fully realized character.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and con
fidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

About Dominic
Dominic M., America’s Tenor, has been singing in one form or another since the age of four. As a young man, Dominic began honing his skills of singing and acting through Community Theater. His voice and career were forever changed when vocal coach and mentor, Suzanne Ferris-Hammer introduced him to the great voice of Mario Lanza. From the moment Dominic heard the voice of Mario Lanza, he began to fashion his own voice in that image.

Dominic continued to expand his career by developing his own show, which includes the songs of Mario Lanza in their original keys. These shows were held in some of the finest NYC Cabarets such as Don’t Tell Mama, Duplex Café, Danny’s Skylight Café, Café 44, and Eighty Eights. He has also performed these shows at The New Palace of the Performing Arts of New Jersey and at Odettes in New Hope, PA.

Dominic
has performed in professional dinner theater with Palame Enterprises. Some of the great shows he performed in were “Singing In The Rain”, “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, and an original production called “Ellis Island”, in which he had a starring role.

In 1999 Dominic competed in The World Championships of Performing Arts. This event featured over 1500 competitors from 30 countries competing in the disciplines of acting, comedy, dance, singing and modeling. After five days of competition, Dominic was named the first Grand Champion Performer of the World. Following the championship, Dominic was asked to perform at the Athletes and Entertainers for Kids Shaqtacular 4, with such celebrities as Shaquille O’Neal, Paula Abdul, Bruce Jenner, and Jeffery Osborne. Dominic Has also performed with Pat Cooper, Tom Jones, The Duprees, Rod Stewart, Smokey Robinson and Many More.

Another dream came true when Damon Lanza, son of Mario Lanza, and long time friend of the Lanza’s, Bob Dolfi, bestowed Dominic with the honor of singing at the Mario Lanza Society’s 38th Anniversary Pre-Ball Dinner in Philadelphia. Since that event, Dominic has had the honor of performing annually in the church where Mario Lanza first sang at the age of 16. At the 40th annual ball, he co-hosted the pre-ball dinner with Katherine Grayson, co-star of Mario Lanza. Dominic has continued to expand his repertoire performing at the Claridge Casino in Atlantic City and as a guest artist at the Atlantic City Film Festival.Dominic is also in his fourth Year as a headliner at the nations largest Italian festival in Milwaukee WI. other festivals have been in Tampa and Chicago plus many more.

With D.A. Productions L.L.C., Dominic has also released four albums “Second Star To The Right...”, featuring the songs of Mario Lanza,Opera to Broadway, the Arias, and One Voice.Working with Dominic on these albums have been Grammy award winners such as Tony Camillo, Jimmy Wisner, Ron Alexumburg, and most recently Steve Dorff. Dominic has been recognized in Who’s Who In Music, awarded the National Choral Award and the Governor’s Award for Opera in New Jersey.

He has studied with notable teachers such as Jerome Hines, Steve Mosel, Yass Haskashima, Dr. David Blackburn, and Marcello Garafalo. For the past few years, Dominic has been singing across the United States with the international sensation “The Three Waiters”, He has been featured at special events in Little Italy NYC including the San Gennaro Festival and has been named and continues to be “Little Italy’s American Tenor”. The most important accomplishment Dominic will always strive for is to make people happy with the gift he has been blessed with.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will consist of focusing on the ligament in the voice on letting it stand alone so the voice will last well past normal years. The sessions are fun because if its not than its not worth doing. What you can expect to achieve is on two different levels. For just a hobby the health of the voice is first than simplistic views to maintain without damage. Some one who is serious is to advance in strength health and vitality, while putting together a show that can be produce through the many avenues I have. For people more in a career mode shows in NYC, records, and competitions are all available. We also focus on the music you love and learn it through communication between you and me. Begin or advance today and lets start singing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Separate studio/office piano, sound equipment, microphones, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
To provide a source to play the music whether by instrument or mechanical.

*** Specialties ***

I teach acting from a sense of freedom, with much emphasis on improvisation and working with Stanislavski, Meisner and Chekhov techniques.
"All it took to break a barrier was an encouraging nature from Dietlinde to grant me the freedom to explore and think without measure. I surprised myself and let go in the process, realizing that all vulnerability is is strength lit with an olympic torch. I am very thankful for the time I had with Dietlinde. Her wisdom and attention to every word that is spoken or sung is inspirationally priceless. I look forward to working with her in the very near future." - Danielle (opera singer)

About Dietlinde
I offer private coachings specializing in:
German Lieder and Arias
German Conversation, Literature and Poetry
English, German, French and Italian diction
Monologue and Scene Studies
Character Development and Interpretation
Script Breakdown and Analysis
Improvisation
Role Preparation
Audition Preparation
Career Guidance

My focus is on creating a new Mind-Body connection to yourself, your character and your voice. Utilizing fundamental acting principles, body language exercises, improvisation and monologue work I concentrate on each performer’s unique potential as a singer-actor while striving to develop the physical, vocal, emotional, and intellectual skills that enable the performer to work freely, joyfully and convincingly, also in a foreign language. I love to perform but my real passion is teaching. Patience is the
key. And curiosity. It’s the process, not the result. We walk across a tight rope together taking risks – knowing there is a safety net.

Ms. Dietlinde is a thorough, well rounded, competent, creative and artistic voice acting teacher who uses visual helps me to convey various emotional layers of a character in German Lider that she worked on with me. Consequently I was able to sing vividly with those image in mind. Her being a voice acting teacher has contributed something I didn't know before I met her. Additionally her warmth, enthusiasm and passion for life fuels the energy of each lesson which allowed me not only enjoy the technique part of the lesson but her personality as well.

Students will learn everything from emotional preparation to what to do if you are emotionally dried up before a big performance! Students will gain foolproof techniques so they will never feel unprepared, whether it is an audition or performance.

About Kimberly
If you cannot find an available time on my calendar that fits your schedule, please click the "ask Kimberly a question" button above with days and times that work for you. I will do my best to find a time that works for both of us!

I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, pilots during pilot season, etc) independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students! I teach both comedic & dramatic acting and stand up comedy.

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also bee
n mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor on the business aspect of acting, which is very important to your acting career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director?, what events/workshops should I be attending?, etc. We can go over all that plus how to get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important to a working actor & comedian so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my love of acting and comedy with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

Really great insight and learnt a lot. Very focused and on point. Looking forward to my next online session with Jake.

I became a fan of Jacob's theatre work in NYC. It's always fresh and inventive, which is why I coach with him on my audition scenes. I primarily go in for tv/film work, but his classical training foundation and fresh perspective translate to the screen. If you're looking for affordable coaching with a cutting edge, up and coming artist- call Jake!

Jake Owen is an excellent teacher and support system for not only fellow professional actors but also for aspiring performers! His radiant energy is contagious and his conservatory training is exceptional and diverse. I highly recommend!
