You just want to learn how to boogie when the music hits you? Or maybe even feel more comfortable socializing when out and about? I can teach you the skills required to impress your audience and attract the right kind of attention when on the dance floor or just moving with the music.
I have been teaching dance for over 15 years, ever since starting dance clubs in high school. I learned I loved teaching and I loved to learn from others.
My goals as a teacher is~~~
~To cultivate my students' talents, strengths, and abilities in as little as one training session.
~To raise my students confidence in skills they didn't know they already possessed.
~To open the students mind on ways of thinking about rhythm and movement that can have physical results.
~To pass on knowledge

Da-Rell is a very knowledgable and sensitive teacher, who worked with our son who definitely needs this special attention. We are sorry our son doesn't live in Da-Rell's area.

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

All ages are welcome. I am an experienced musician and educator with a B.M dual degree in Jazz Composition and Performance from Berklee College of Music, as well as a Master of Music Theory and Composition Degree in Scoring for Film and Multimedia from New York University.

I encourage learning with creativity and curiosity, which makes the lessons both fun and productive. I mainly teach voice, piano, music theory and composition lessons for all ages.

Besides these subjects, I also give lessons for ABRSM exam prep, college-bound musician prep, music theory placement exam, music history placement exam, ear training, arranging, orchestration, counterpoint, classical harmony, jazz harmony, Logic Pro, Sibelius and Pro Tools.

Formerly, I taught voice at City Music Mentoring Program in Boston, and worked as a music tutor at Berklee College of Music Learning Center for subjects such as harmony, ear training, arranging and counterpoint. As a music tutor, I was responsible for helping ...

My 6yr old just took his first lesson and is hooked. Gigi is very sweet and stirred up an excitement in him. My son definitely liked the "idea" of learning the piano but is now confidant and actually writing his first song! Who knew, 5 notes and you can become a composer! BRAVO GIGI:)

Though, acting is acting no matter what medium, there are particular strategies film/tv actors use to achieve peak performance on film. Together, we can explore the best on camera technique for you on screen. We can also go into filmmaking and what it is like to be on set so you are prepared for anything!

Kimberly spent extra time with my 9 yo daughter on an audition prep. She helped her along with many tips and I felt refined her self tape significantly. She is very pleasant and my daughter connected with her well. Thanks Kimberly, she looks forward to another session with you!

"Michael is a fantastic teacher! He helped me work on my Cleopatra among other great characters. He is focused, knowledgeable, passionate and has a profound manner in making the text accessible-current and personal. I used to have difficulty relating to a piece, the language intimidated me. Michael helped me to make the text my own, coming from my own heart. It changed how I worked on everything, both classical and modern."

"Jeremy Kruse is a working actor and an excellent coach who showed me how fun and rewarding a career in film and television could be. Being a student of Jeremy's for almost two whole years, I looked to him as both a mentor and a friend. He taught everything from breaking down a script to being typecast for a role; even going as far to recreate the physical conditions of an audition space. Since departing from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, he's been supportive of my own endeavors as a rising actor, both putting me in touch with a voiceover coach and encouraging me to take up improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade. I began working with Jeremy my first year of highschool and have witnessed firsthand how well his contagious enthusiasm and cultivated professionalism influences his pupils, no matter their age or level of experience. Now four years later, I can say with confidence that were it not for Jeremy Kruse and my class with him every Saturday for 80 weeks, I wouldn't be as devoted as I am today to pursuing acting as a career."
