Fantastic first lesson. Sharon is great to work with. She explains the process and then we get right into the music and vocals. She's very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

Sharon is a lovely and outgoing woman. I’m new to piano and reading music, but she is so patient and encouraging. I’d recommend her to a piano newbie like myself. She also has the cutest pup that keeps us company during the lessons.

Love Sharon! My 13-year-old daughter takes voice lessons with her and Sharon is funny, positive, and very energetic.
My daughter has said she would not go to anyone else. Sharon is great with young students and getting the most out of them, especially if they’re a bit shy. We look forward to seeing her every week and I highly recommend her as an instructor.

About Keanon
I love everything about teaching! I love music; it is my life. I sleep, breathe and dream music. I am a Columbia University Chicago graduate; I graduated with a degree in Music with a concentration in Classical Voice. I have performed in numerous operas and musicals, as well as, sung on Gospel Cruises all around the world. In my eyes, the student is the main focus so whatever issues, concerns or request the student may have I will treat them with priority. I am all about strengthening the natural born talent and making my students the best vocalist they can be. I'm here to serve the students and that is what I will do until they are confident in their gift...music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I take music very seriously but at the same time I like my lessons to be fun and a joyous experience. I am very patient and helpful with any strugg
les that may seem too hard to the student. I will start my students off with the basic vocal warm ups and then move on to material that they would like to cover and if so the student doesn't have material to cover, I will present them with material. Being a singer is not easy at all, so I will challenge my students by giving exercises that challenge them to sing for proficient. I will also bring in material that is brand new and ask the students questions about the piece. The student is in the lesson to learn everything about music, so any type of material that I feel will benefit them and help them move closer to their goal, I will definitely present to them. After 3 to 6 months students will be able to sing in the 3 minor keys and the major key. The student will also have knowledge and know how to sing at least 3 different modes. The singer will know how to read basic sheet music and perform it with solfege. The singer will also have 4 songs of my choice or their choice mastered and ready to perform in front of an audience. Lastly, the singer will have knowledge of proper breath control while performing, usage of a microphone, and intonation.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano/ Keyboard
Music Stand
Water

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical, gospel and R and B singing.

Keanon is a GREAT teacher/artist/musician/mentor

I've been working with Keanon for almost a year now. Aside from being an amazing vocalist himself, he does everything he can to help students reach their full potential and find their voice. He makes lessons fun while constantly keeping you challenged. There's always encouragement from him to strive to be better, which can really bring the best out of singers. Whether you're simply singing for hobby, performing for shows/auditions, or ready to record, Keanon has something to offer to any aspiring musician. He has a passion and love for music and understands it's a gift that must be shared with the world.

About Sara
Hi! I’m Sara, a working actor with over 5+ years of experience in film, commercial, theatre, and voice-over work. I've received my B.A. in Theatre Arts from Earlham College and have been working professionally in Los Angeles and the Bay Area.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2014 and have loved helping my students with big network auditions for tv and voice over, getting ready for a school play, and taking the next step in their professional career.

I love setting goals with my students and no goal is too small or too big. Whether you just want to dip your toes into acting or to go after a big agent in L.A. I'd love to help you reach that and I look forward to working with you! I currently only teach online because I am often on the go - but I will always find time for you!

About Casey
**During the lesson, three HD webcams are used to offer every angle possible. After each lesson, students receive a private link to watch the recorded lesson of the instructor's webcams in 1080p HD, which the student can keep forever.**

From magic to music, and from theater to rock and Roll, Casey has done it all. For over 20 years, Casey has traveled the country performing for audiences from 1 to 20,000. He has a life-long history of experience with stage productions, live sound, and stage lighting. He has been an award-winning magician since he was the age of 7, and he has taught for over ten years.

Casey has an extensive magic "workshop" from which he teaches. He always keeps up-to-date with the new magic tricks, lectures, and trends. Casey can “perform” many of the current magic tricks on the market or on TV to help the st
udent decide the area in which he or she wants to focus.

Many elements make a good magician and a memorable magic show. Casey can help find the best ways to achieve the student’s goals in magic, all the way up to full-scale magic shows suitable for thousands.

For beginners, Casey can teach the fundamentals of magic, mentalism, sleight of hand, and any other form of magic, illusions, or trickery.

For intermediate students, Casey can do all of the above, as well as help shape and mold the student into the performer of his or her desires. Casey can teach advanced magic tricks, theater and live show "how to's," and much more.

Advanced students will appreciate the technical portion of Casey's background. He can teach all aspects of live sound and lighting, and work alongside an already seasoned performer to tweak specific “moves” or scripts.

Each student will progress at his or her own pace.

About Rebecca
My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

About Charles
I am a working professional actor (proud member of both SAG-AFTRA and Actor's Equity Association). I've worked on some of Television's biggest shows including: BIG LITTLE LIES (HBO) as the character Agent Nelson (opposite Golden Globe winner, Laura Dern). I've also landed recurring roles in Grey's Anatomy (ABC) and General Hospital (ABC). Other highlighted (of my many) TV credits include: True Detective (HBO), Jane the Virgin (CW), Criminal Minds (CBS), Veronica Mars (HULU), Scandal (ABC), and the hit multi-cam series, FAM (CBS). I'll be seen in the upcoming Feature Film BUTTER starring Oscar winner, Mira Sorvino as well as 2 soon-to-be released Netflix series, Unbelievable and Medical Police. I've also done several National commercials for the likes of: Honda, Toyota, and McDonald's.

I received my classical training from UC Irvine and
have performed with some of Los Angeles' most renowned theater companies and stage directors including: the Actors Co-Op, Company of Angels, and stage director, Don B. Welch. Other regional highlights include working with one of Connecticut's renowned Equity theatre companies (Connecticut Free Shakespeare) in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Much Ado About Nothing (respectively as Oberon and Don John).

COACH: My teaching career began as a credentialed 5th grade teacher in Los Angeles, CA prior to starting my professional acting career. I started officially teaching acting classes (and tutoring) in 2009 - mainly all over Los Angeles and the Valley - most notably with the non-profit, City Hearts: Kids Say Yes to the Arts. My elementary aged, inner-city acting students performed for the likes of agents at William Morris Endeavor, Glee star Max Adler (FOX), Empire star Grace Byers (FOX), and placed 1st and 2nd place at the annual Shakespeare Challenge in Topanga, CA for my entire tenure of 8 consecutive years. I've also taught acting workshops internationally for high schoolers at Gyeonggi Suwon International School in Suwon, South Korea. My current private coaching clients range from professional actors to younger actors seeking to better understand the craft of acting, preparing for school play auditions and productions, etc.

I love to give my students PRACTICAL tools to have a better sense of scene and character analysis, audition preparation, and perhaps just as or more important, tools to have a health and confident mindset as they approach any and everything dealing with acting.

Charles' acting program taught me professionalism and the meticulousness that are essential to have in my acting career. He propelled me to become a better artist as I spent engaging and personal time with him in and outside of class. He really cares about his students and he will do anything to make his students feel comfortable and most importantly, learn more about acting.

Wow! Charles is fully knowledgeable, confident, and great at bringing out 'YOUR BEST' in such a dynamic and complicated art form. He gave me effective coaching to prepare for my audition, and I got a callback - as a result from our first session. Normally, I just work on the material by myself, but I'm looking forward to getting more opportunities - just so I can reach out to Charles. I'm fully invested in his career as well now that I know him. My wife and I geeked when we saw him on 'Big little lies' so cool... thats my coach!
