I have lived on the stages of the world for over 30 years. From the chamber music halls to every stage of Lincoln Center to the stage of the State Department in Washington DC making a live documentary lecture concert. The stage is like a family room in my house regardless of the numbers of the audience, cameras, microphones or lighting. The stage really is the one in our minds. We walk onto a stage every time we speak with something on the line. When we meet new people in our lives or reunite with the ones we have not see in a long time. When we need to say something difficult or admit something to ourselves.

I help you to explore the psychology and the philosophy as well as the down to earth, technical methods of being on the stage and performing at your very best. The stage can inhibit but it can also energize as it channels all the previous energy that exists there.

Different stages are vortexes of energy. Connecting to it is one of the elements often not felt or ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Looking to start or enhance a career as a voice actor? Just looking for a fun way to become more in tune with your voice and body? I can help guide you to achieve your personal goals.

Using my background in linguistics, singing and acting, I will show you how the human body can produce a wide range of sounds for diverse effects. Voice-over work traditionally centers on animation, but we will discuss different ways of approaching radio, commercial and both child and adult-oriented cartoons for a deeper knowledge and skill set. We will do warm ups that classical singers use as well as analyze other voice artists' work to see what is best for you.

What makes dance lessons unique with me is that I have studied so many styles of dance until I decided to focus on contemporary ballet. I grew up studying classical ballet at the esteemed Ballet west academy while also attending a competition studio. This allowed me to build a string ballet technique while also dancing contemporary, hip hop, ballroom, tap, and many more. I graduated from the Alonzo King Lines Ballet B. F.A. program in 2019 where I was able to develop an knowlede and passion for dance is so much deeper than I ever knew possible. Since then I have gone on to perform with many contemporary dance companies in San Fransisco, while mainly being a dance artist with SFDanceWorks. I have also attended many dance intensives including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Netherlands Dans Theater, and SPRINGBOARD Danse Montreal, and can offer coaching on how to prepare and apply to these institutions as well as college dance programs. I have been teaching dance to all levels and ages ...

Love Claire! I am a dancer by profession but was looking to learn to sing on the side. Claire has been wonderful! I have really enjoyed all of my lessons with her & am looking forward to continuing with singing! I would highly recommend. :)

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
