I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

Hello! I'm Dax Lily, As a coach, my approach is kind, down to earth, and non-judgemental, but I make sure to give constructive criticism because without it, you cannot and will not improve. I have studied with a wide array of different acting coaches. I am also a producer, director, and screenwriter (check out my new film Limits of Therapy on IMDb). Now having finally had the privilege of being the casting director for the film I produced, I have invaluable knowledge to share with you on what to do and what not to do when auditioning (both self-tapes and in person) if you choose to make one of our lessons an industry coaching lesson. For acting coaching, I have helped actors have that "WOW it finally makes sense" moment, where they understand what they had been lacking all along.. unpredictability! In my opinion, the things an actor needs to do to stand out in an audition is be unpredictable, believable, and fully focused. I am super excited to team up with TakeLessons and I hope to ...

Best instructor ever. She is really down to earth and has helped me understand scripts better and I can honestly say without her coaching, I don’t think I would’ve booked the indie film I just got cast in! I can’t wait to continue lessons with Dax! A+ coach highly recommend her.
Lidia
Dax is really kind and reliable and she always makes me laugh- a great coach to work with. She has trained me twice a week for about 1 year now and I am still learning new things in each lesson. I am happy to recommend her to anyone in need of improvement in acting and also auditioning - trust me on this one, dont let this one go, coach with Dax!!!
Janice
As an experienced actress with a marketing degree, Dax is a great communicator and coach. She helped me with my monologue and her coaching helped bring my ability to the next level. She has also helped me with self-taping auditions. Highly recommend.

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
Tamura H.
Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

My daughter Alexis has always wanted to try acting so after a long due diligence process she chose Ana. Alexis loves her acting classes and working with Ana. She is so excited to discuss with the family what they work on each week. Based on the last couple of months I can see Alexis becoming more serious about acting and Ana is a large part of that.

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.
