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.

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 train in the vocal technique of vocal therapy in keeping the vocal and speaking voice healthy while maintaining a beautiful quality.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have two Master's Degrees in Education (Higher Ed. and Teaching and Learning with Technology), and am working on another M.A. currently in History. I have a tutoring business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my specialization is geared in three arenas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, Oriental, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Sci
ence).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the research for them), essays, creative writing - everything to do with papers you ever wanted to know.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including the aforementioned Will Shakespeare.

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach "to the test", I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, come with not just the willingness to learn and have fun, but the expectation to do both.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

About Othell
Othell J. Miller is a passionate & innovative professional artist/educator dedicated to meeting humanity's need for enlightening, empowering, and entertaining art. He has been seriously engaged in the art and craft of acting since a teen. Subsequently, he pursued two theater related degrees, the most recent being a MFA in Acting from Rutgers, Mason Gross School of the Arts.

He has taught Acting & Public Speaking for the last eighteen years, both on a collegiate and secondary school level. Moreover, he's acted in or directed numerous high quality theater productions.

Mr. Miller's primary objective as an artist/educator is to foster in others both self-awareness and a greater understanding of the human condition. He believes meaningful, technically sound arts' instruction aids in self-reflection & offers profound revelations about
life.

He is most concerned with aiding orators and actors in delivering authenticity on stage or on screen. Therefore, his work pushes the orator or actor to develop a greater self awareness, a strong sense of truth, an ability to actively listen, and a bravery to connect with other actors and the circumstances of the script. Mr. Miller is also invested in the development and use of both precise diction and a natural, confident, and compelling voice.
