Public Speaking, Acting, Improv, and Communication Skills

"Speaking publicly was always my greatest fear until I had an opportunity to be coached by James. In just 5 one-hour lessons, my fear of public speaking was eliminated. James was able to convey that my fear of public speaking was irrational, and with several key preparation techniques I would be able to overcome this lifelong challenge. All true! Thanks James!"
--Senior ranking administrator in a private educational institution

The #1 fear of business people is addressing an audience. Effective oral communication, especially speaking in public, is a skill integral to confidence and leadership in the business world. Like any skill, it can be learned. Using breathing, stretching, and relaxation techniques from British theatre training, you will learn how to overcome stage fright and build confidence, so that you can stand in front of a group of people and convey your ideas convincingly, without fear, and become a ...

Magic isn't just a mystery or puzzle to be figured out...Its a performing art (actually one of the variety arts) that designed to entertain. But most importantly, it should be FUN: a delight to both learn & master!

What type of magic would you like to perform for your friends & family? Stage or platform magic (sometimes called Parlor or Cabaret)? Mentalism or mind-reading? How about close-up magic (like cards & coins): Is that your thing? No matter what kind of magic we choose to explore, I've got whole library of teaching references & secret resources (all stowed away in my magic room) to share with you.

I'm Jeff, my stage name is "Mr. Jeffo" and I specialize in entertaining children & families with my own brand of magic and storytelling. I've been performing magic as a part-time pro for decades now, starting out with birthday party shows as a teen, and working my way up to performing corporate meetings, school shows, gatherings and special events over the past 15 years.

Our small group had a blast both watching Jeff perform and then learning learning some magic. His weekly lessons made the pandemic shutdown more bareable and fun in 2020. We’re looking forward to more Magic Monday’s with Mr. Jeffo next summer!

My son is loving his magic lessons with Jeff. He practices and is excited by his progress. Jeff is thoughtful and patient and flexible with his time. Highly recommend his magic 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!

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.

Kay made me feel very comfortable and I really enjoyed my first class. She's a great instructor; I'm really looking forward to my future lessons.

My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her.

I'm a beginner actor and Khuloud helped me set a clear path for establishing my career as an actor. She has extensive experience in the industry and gave me real-world tips on how to be successful. I am confident that with the knowledge I gained from this class I will be able to make a lot of things happen for me. I appreciated her flexibility and willingness to work with my schedule. She took our time seriously and worked to make it as beneficial as possible. Very likable person and easy to learn from. She has a genuine love for acting and eagerness to see others with a similar passion succeed. I will most likely be taking instruction for her again in the future.

Does a great job of reinforcing the things I do well and building up the things I need to work on, even when I'm a bit slow at getting exactly what's needed. Also a really friendly person and comfortable to work with"

"I don't know about you (yes you, the one reading this), but I've been secretly wanting to act my whole life and am a full of life personality with hidden insecurities. Even though I have never really acted professionally, I have been theatrical and playing all sorts of characters, speaking in accents and dancing to everything in front of the mirror, in comfortable social gatherings and have even put on shows for my pets and husband! Last time I acted "professionally" was in a high school play. And even then, I mostly helped make the props!

I tell you this, because, with that kind of a background, nervous and yet SO excited to JUST TRY, I chose Christian as my teacher- my professor of Acting!

I am 3 classes in and Christian is very supportive, non-judgemental and extremely easy to learn with. I am impressed with his skills, his ability to immediately decipher something I'm trying to explain, and then how easy he makes it for me to put his constructive feedback into practice. The practice is not easy... because that stuff always takes hard work, but he explains it all so easily so I can start practicing and exploring the acting world. He is honest about the acting world, the people in it and the various steps it takes to get to wherever you are trying to get! So be honest with yourself and let this be an authentic and fun experience! Plus, it's so nice to talk to someone that actually gets what it's like to be dreaming!

Thanks Christian!"

"Fawn is a fantastic voice coach and singing instructor. She genuinely loves and cares about her students, her work, and teaching. She taught me tricks and tips that drastically changed and strengthened my voice for the better just within the first lesson. And without any pressure. She always makes each lesson fun and meaningful. We always discuss new goals (which Fawn is very easy to talk to) and then Fawn tailors a lesson plan to help me quickly reach them. She is extremely flexible about scheduling and also takes extra time to work on particular issues. And what's nice is that her prices are absolutely affordable (and no where near the same ball park as other vocal coaches with her amount of experience)."

"Upon my first time working with Erin it was extremely obvious how technically proficient she is, although it should be no surprise, since she has a Masters in Acting from a top graduate program. Not only was I able to place complete and utter trust in her extensive knowledge of the craft, but her nurturing energy and humorous demeanor create such a positive environment to take risks and be exploratory in my work. I couldn’t ask for anything more in an acting instructor. She’s truly awesome."

I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it.

From Italy's Cecchetti Method to the cross-genre techniques of contemporary American ballet, these basic positions keep dancers of every level in perfect form.
