Bgcheck Background Checked


Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.
In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.
This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.
We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.
Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

We have had a great experience with Andrew teaching our daughter piano. He works great with kids and has a wide range of teachable skills. He organizes fun events for his students that showcase their hard work. I am really pleased with our decision to enroll our daughter in his program, she has a lot of fun and has learned a lot in a short amount of time.

I can't choose a subject because Andrew teaches so many different things in his piano lessons that I would be doing him a disservice if I chose just one.

As a former piano lessons taker myself, I must admit that I had some lofty expectations for my daughter's piano lessons. On the first day of lessons for her, I knew that we were in great hands. Andrew has exceeded my expectations with every turn. And a fun and lighthearted way, and through games, activities, and fingers on the piano , Andrew helps the young learner learn the most important thing about music: it's fun! Theory is fun, composition is fun, ear training is fun, performance is fun. As a musician myself, I'd almost forgot. Andrew has helped me to remember, and is instilling these values in my daughter.

Thank you Andrew for being so awesome.

What's special about film & screen acting, is that it's up to the ACTOR to realize the world he/she 's in, the relationships, and what ACTION he/she is taking toward moving the story forward. Theater is collaborative, performance-wise. It's warm and fuzzy. You may never get that luxury on a TV set.

'Acting for Screen' cultivates your craft, by personal coaching with audition tools.

The challenge in SCREEN ACTING is that you must create worlds amongst extreme odds, such as using camera contraptions, special fx, cameras in your face, dolleys swirling around you, and sometimes, quite literally while standing on one foot.

Listening. Objectives. Relaxation. Specificity. THE AUDITION to book the role. These are tools every actor must wield in this exciting but changing market.

'Acting for Screen' is taught by
award-winning director/actor, (Lionsgate, Project Greenlight, On The Lot, Sony Pictures, USC Theater School) with the goal of getting you paying roles, and growing your

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

Ellysa is extremely knowledgeable and practical - her lesson with me was amazing. As a first lesson, we went through my existing equipment and goals for writing/producing my own work, and she gave me an online review of what we discussed next steps were for me. I’m so thankful for her clear and focused guidance!

Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

"Tamika is a great teacher. It was easy working with her because she is passionate, honest, reliable, relatable and fun. She encouraged me to audition for the stage play "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and I made it in. She continued to work with me as an Artist Development teacher in the play. She really helped me as an actor and teaching me to take on the character I was portraying. It was amazing seeing myself grow as an actor and getting better during the whole process. I was able to put on a good performance because of her guidance and tutelage. I definitely recommend her."

"There. Is. NO. ONE. More. Passionate... This guy is a freaking genius! My son and I both take lessons from him. I feel bad that I hadn't posted a review earlier. Tyler's education history is extensive and so much fun to hear about. He was taught by Academy Award Winners, International Experts, and students of the Acting Masters: Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and even Lee Strasberg! I am so stoked to continue working with him, and I would recommend him to any one looking for a talented, passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated, patient and driven teacher. Because he is all of those things and much more.

The best part, (aside from the art)? His PRICES. I randomly asked him one day why he charged to little, especially because his agent takes a good chunk of it and he has an assistant to pay. He told me something alongg the lines of: "If I could afford to teach for free, I would. Seeing the development in the ability and heart of each student is is pay enough. I just gotta pay the bills so I can continue to even do this." Like, okay... He lives and breathes this. On average, he told me, he spends about 3-6 hours a day, just studying. He also performs and teaches on a regular basis. Like, how... Anyway, I am beyond blessed to have the chance to work with this kid. He's a great person with a huge heart and a very open mind. Anything you want to improve on as an artist, he'll make it happen!"
