Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

With years of study and performance at Improv schools, The Groundlings and Second City both in New York, I warm up students by playing fun improv games and bringing out their comedy chops! In addition, I work though audition sides as well as monologues with students and focus on finding the truth of the characters so the student can forget about "acting" the scene and instead be real and have fun!

Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes, both from theatre and film, to explore a variety of acting styles.

I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
