As a classical singer, I have extensive training and experience in clear, non-regional diction. In our sessions, students will learn and practice speaking and reading aloud in English.

About Katelyn
How I Can Help You:

I have worked one on one with music students for 10 years. I have extensive experience in teaching classical, musical theater, and pop styles of singing, as well as acting for the stage and beginning piano.

Whether you are a beginner, or a veteran musician, I can help you cultivate your musical skills.

About Me:

I am a classically trained singer, with a master's degree in music from The Peabody Institute. I have performed at The Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, The Tanglewood Music Center, several local and national opera companies, and have been positively reviewed in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Baltimore Sun, and The Boston Globe.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each student receives a personalized lesson plan, based on his/her goals, and musical background.

My singers are all trained in a cla
ssical technique, even if they specialize in contemporary singing, to help them avoid potential vocal injury.

My piano students learn to read and play music at their own pace.

My acting and spoken voice students learn to feel comfortable reading clearly, and reciting/performing on stage or other public areas.

My music theory students work one on one with me, learning basic theory (note names, durations, etc.) to advanced theory, ear training, and composition.

I am flexible and am willing to work with students of any age and level. I only require that students practice and enjoy the music they make.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room in home with seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classical singer, and specialize in classical voice training. However, I also have extensive experience in other singing styles, from choral to popular, and acting/oratory. I have a minor in music theory, and have taken advanced courses in music theory pedagogy.

I am a professional opera singer and have studied diction and languages for 12 years. I have a special musican’s ear for the subtleties of language and a lot of tools to help you reduce your accent and speak English like it’s your first language! As someone who is often performing in other languages myself, I am personally acquainted with the challenges of mastering pronunciation and accents and I am excited about sharing what I’ve learned in my own journey with others!

About Alexandra
I am a professional opera singer with a love for languages. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelors in Voice, and went on to study opera performance at the Opera Institute at Boston Universities. Since then, I've been working as a singer for over 10 years!

I have to sing in a lot of languages for my job, and I'm here to give you some of the tools I use when mastering pronunciation for your own accent reduction pursuits.

I am also a writer and lover of the English language (my mother is a lifelong English teacher), and love sharing this tough-to-master language with others.

A lot of the skills I have as a singer are so helpful for learning how to pronounce languages correctly AND how to support your voice to keep it healthy.

I can also help you in your own singing development and improvement! I can teach you
basic and advanced technical exercises to increase your breath support, tone quality, and overall musicianship.

I look forward to meeting and working with you!

There is no such thing as speaking a language with the right accent. I am happy to help you with this.

I am a native French speaker born in France; I have lived in the USA since 2000 and speak English fluently. I teach both French and English as a Second Language (ESL). I am used to teaching/ coaching/ interacting with students of all ages (12-80+) and with professionals in a corporate environment. In fact I have worked in-countries and remotely with people located in France, Poland, India, Canada, Guatemala and Brazil.

For Life Coaching lessons, I draw from my experience and best practices. I will share simple yet highly effective tips and approaches to help you meet your needs.

For best results; I recommend a minimum of 2 (two) 45-minute sessions per week for the first 20 les

Happy to start any time soon. THX for visiting my profile. Questions welcome!

In preparation for a trip to France, and not knowing any French at all, I started taking French lessons from Isabelle several months ago. She has helped me a lot with pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary. She is an excellent teacher.

Isabelle is an absolutely marvelous teacher - anyone and everyone would benefit from taking classes with her.
I speak French well and my goal is to improve my conversational skills so that I can keep up with my monthly French book group. I am the only American in a group of French women and French is spoken the whole time.
Isabelle has been spectacular in helping me sharpen and improve my conversational skills. Our class is one long conversation - very carefully orchestrated by Isabelle so that each class is both productive and delightful.
I love to discuss the French culture and culture in general and Isabelle invariably makes that part of the conversation. But i think that Isabelle could talk with great knowledge and interest about many topics.
Each session flies by and each session makes my conversational skills sharper.
I feel very lucky that Isabelle is my teacher.

Los Angeles, CA

I trained for three years in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and can help you learn a system for training your own ear to hear accents, regionalisms, dialects and then feel, in your physical body, how to make shifts in how you speak and thereby how you sound. The work is not just academic, but physical, experiential and straightforward. It is enjoyable and empowering and something you will be able to easily practice on your own and apply in the day to day for quick results. I look forward to working with you!

About Claire
I hold an MFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts and have been teaching professionally for over ten years. I teach Acting and Auditiong to young actors (10-18 years) and I also teach Public Speaking, Voice/Speech and Accent Reduction to those looking to find more ease and power when using their voice in front of others. I have taught, directed and coached young actors who have gone on to work professionally in Film, TV and Theater and my students have been accepted to renowned conservatories and universities across the country (NYU Tisch, California Institute of the Arts, AMDA and others). I am a passionate teacher who believes in the individual and in unlocking the creative genius, the impulses, the imagination and the unique forms of expression within each of my students. In my sessions, I encourage my students to
“play” and to discover how to both lean in and tap in to what is there and then develop relaxation, ease and focus on the task at hand - a monologue, an audition, a speech or working with a text. In addition to teaching and coaching actors, I have worked extensively in the corporate worlds in areas of Voice, Speech and Presentation as a coach and have taught group classes on Public Speaking and Presentation. I have taught and coached students from China, Russia, Taiwan, Italy, Japan in addition to the U.S. Throughout the ten plus years that I have been teaching, I have helped both actors and non-actors, those in the professional business world, gain tools that lead to freedom and ease of expression when speaking in front of others, be it at an audition, an interview, giving a presentation to a board or speaking in front of thousands at a Ted Talk.

Claire is a professional. She is a natural born teacher who immediately clicked with my son. She gave him the tools he needed for an upcoming audition at a theatre conservatory. Anyone from beginner to dedicated professional would benefit from private lessons with her. We feel very lucky we found her with so many less qualified people out there.

***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

Favorably and extensively reviewed and proven to be effective by students, the accent-reduction program developed from Burrkowsky's (1969) multi-media method. I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates.

The goal is to develop a comprehensive, systematic sound profile based on lesson recordings using wave monitoring software. Also, a crash course option exists based more on broad familiarization than intensive practice-orientation. The course encompasses more than 135 pdf and word files, along with multimedia items.

About Erol
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools: ESL and Speech students learn to monitor their own phonological issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ensuring relevant resources for Excel and related productivity lessons.

Due to my limited funds
, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning.
