Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

I have worked with Bill as a vocalist for several years, and have always been impressed with his singing voice. Now having studied with him privately, I am even more impressed with his teaching skills—fun, encouraging, and informative, his lessons are not to be missed! Also, very reasonably priced!

I've worked with Bill in multiple capacities since we met. He has an incredible instrument and a fantastic attitude. He is always willing to help you with whatever your particular need may be, and he's a very kind and engaging vocal instructor.

About Stephanie
Hi, I'm Tony Nominated Broadway Producer Stephanie Rosenberg, and I believe you deserve to have your dream. Whether you are starting out as a child actor or a professional here in NYC, you deserve to make it happen.

I look at my job as being a support system to give you the tools to help you get there. My teaching modalities come from Sandford Meisner, Stanislavski, and many of the other great teachers.

We look at your skill set to identify what is working for you. What should you keep, and celebrate. (Learning to act is a lot of work and it can be fun!). From there what needs to be adjusted becomes very apparent and we can start to tackle those elements one by one. We can also take the time to look at your career goals, and create a game plan to get there. This career is a journey.

The key is that you come out with skills you c
an rely on, repeat, and apply as you grow in your art form; as well create a performing confidence that will support you throughout your artistic journey.\

For private coaching in the NYC area, I teach out of many of the Professional Rehearsal Studios in NYC, such as: Shetler Studios; Ripley Grier; Simple Studios; Pearl, etc...Virtual coaching is also available.

To learn more about me as a producer please go to: TheEmpressProductions.com
Past productions include ANASTASIA, ON THE TOWN, MATILDA, GORE VIDAL'S THE BEST MAN, LAST SMOKER IN AMERICA.

About Shelley
I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr
ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

Within my voice studio I teach in person and online lessons. While online lessons can be beneficial for students wishing to study with me that are not in the immediate vicinity, I recommend in person lessons

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music!

Shelley is by far the best voice teacher I have ever had. Within the short duration of time that I have worked with her, I have noticed that my voice has significantly changed (it feels and sounds better) after using her techniques. She knows what she’s talking about and offers substantial and specific criticism. She individualizes every student, in that she chooses repertoire that benefits a particular voice instead of assuming that every student has the same voice and strengths/weaknesses. This is a very important skill for a voice teacher to have. Shelley is also very good at time management within a lesson. Most importantly, she makes the experience fun! I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone who is looking for a voice teacher! Thank you Shelley!

Shelley is amazing! All my old teachers always told me to breathe to release the tension in my voice, but Shelley taught me vocal warmups to ease the strain. I now can sing better and connect to lyrics.

About Franklyn
I am a med school dropout who decided one day not to keep fighting his creativity demon. Next came 6 years of Musical Theater training at Julliard (2 years), Columbia (2years, ma degree), Indiana school of music (2 years), and one year of social work training at Pittsburgh, 1970-1980 I spent 10 years immersing myself in the avaunt guarde musical theater scene in NYC.

I studied physical theater with Richard Schechner and Brechtian theater with mabou mines, the uta hagen system with Jack Axelrod, and classical acting technique with Wal Cherry, also a workshop with the Grotowski company. Meanwhile, along the way I more and more integrated the gestalt therapy techniques I learned at Pittsburgh into my teaching/directing style. 1981-2016 I spent 35 years mostly in Israel running my own studio and teaching for a while acting at tel aviv u.
theater dept. also in Israel I sopped up a lot of Kabbalah wisdom, especially of the Bratislava and chabbad sorts, though i am mostly avant garde and not at all "religious" in the usual sense.

Since 2016 I am teaching here in NYC and directing three musical theater shows which I wrote/composed. from my BA in chemistry at Cornell U till my social work training at Pittsburgh i studied 14 years total at 9 universities. Along with all the philosophy and kabbalah. Also, I am a pro dixiland and klezmer trombone player, with many years experience in that field. I teach acting, singing, and movement, all grounded in gestalt work as reality 101. "If you don't deal the reality of the situation, the reality of the situation will deal with you." It's your choice, but this stuff is not for everybody. You gotta have the intelligence for the ideas, the quest for the truth search, and the talent to weld it all into your own work as an artist of the theater.

You can be the horse and let me be the jockey/teacher/coach, or together we can create your own personal brand of musical theater using your particular set of skills: acting, singing, movement, writing, etc. from mabou mines theater I learned about creating a "personal myth" project". The gestalt work gives you polarities, opposites sides of your personality. These polarities director Michael Chekhov labels your "psychological gestures". Next, you use these polarities as subtext for a one person show, and overlay whatever metaphor or "character" or image suits your fancy. For example, you as donald trump, or you as a humming bird. the meld of two levels then shines as illuminated "live form".

Working with Franklyn is being with a true master of a field. Not only was the process well organized, done pragmatically, and attention paid to the details, but also Franklyn taught his trade as he took you along his particular Gestalt influenced method. He is well versed and highly skilled in helping actors and people reach their potential. I recommend him for his vast knowledge, dedication, and hard work in making a final product, the product is a better you! Thank you Franklyn!

I started learning Flamenco guitar as a teenager, and this allowed me to experience what is necessary for a young mind to learn and grow in this beautiful art form. Its sounds and techniques captivated me and it is that very beauty what will surely keep you learning, regardless of your musical goals or ventures. Flamenco has a charm that is both exotic and sophisticated, and this is what I want to share with you. It is my desire to continue the Flamenco passion and life that allowed me to enjoy entertaining audiences as well as the perhaps more valuable moments of sharing joy with friends and family.

About Michael
My name is Mike. I am a professionally-trained actor who has experience in a number of different acting techniques. My passion lies in theater and I have performed in a number of on-stage productions ranging from classical to contemporary. I am passionate about this work and seeing my students grow both personally and professionally.

I get to know my students on a personal level so that I can custom-tailor a training program that will help maximize their potential and their growth as artists.

My teaching philosophy consists of two parts:

First: Your life is inspiring. Your experiences are unique. And your perspective is unlike anyone else's on this planet. As actors, we tend to get audition material and generalize it immediately and create an idea of what our character should be. And then we advance a general idea of that prototy
pe. This is a travesty. In truth, your life has given you experiences and emotions that are real and that you can draw from to justify and anchor any choice at all. You may not believe it, but this is true. My first job as a teacher is to validate you as a person.

Second: Your emotions must be real, but you’re not allowed to show them in a way that is artificial or pretentious. Most actors make the same mistake when they get a scene. They get too excited. “This scene is great! So much good emotion! It’s been so long since I’ve really sunk my teeth into good material. I can’t wait to kill it!” And believe me, I get it. As an actor, sometimes the bait is too attempting not to take. But be weary of falling into this trap. If you show the audience your cards the entire time, they will know exactly where you’re heading.

And if they know where you're heading, they won't remain interested for long. The other thing to recognize is that in real life, which we as actors are always trying to re-create, we tend to cover up our emotions and play it cool.

All of this to say that the craft of the scene lies in what you cover up and what you decide to show.

I teach it as a two-part process. In the first part, you over-act. You blow it out of the water. You yell, you cry, you laugh, you improvise, you go nuts and do all the things you know you can’t do in front of a casting director. This is done not to teach you "bad habits" but instead, so you can get a sense of what you wish you could do but can't.

In the second part, you cover it up by not showing anything. And from there, we see what needs to come out. As the great Sanford Meisner once said, "Don't do anything until something happens to make you do it." This requires enormous self-restraint and patience. But ironically, something always does happen.
