Have experience teaching beginning to intermediate actors and actresses

About Danielle
I have been taking the world by surprise since the age of 4. I began studying at Queens College at 6 years old and was a recital pianist by the age of 12. I was a consumer of music, from the Music Theory lessons on Saturdays, piano lessons on Thursdays and voice lessons on Saturday afternoons, my life was filled with music.

It is to no one's surprise that I completed my first demo at the age of 13 and was performing for Queens Colleges audiences at 14. I went on the rank high in the NYSSMA series in both piano and voice. I also went on to study music in college and began touring with gospel troupes nationally. Since then I has done many workshops, Master Classes, tour dates, theatre shows etc. Too many to date. I am a sought after teacher for voice, piano and broadway singing. I train public speakers, actors and teachers as well.

Boleslavsky and Strasburg techniques combined with British Classical School. -as the result of my own training. We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.

About Gina
As of May 20th, 2018, I am in New York City again and will be accepting new students as well as reconnecting with anyone who wants to return.
I've completed two graduate degrees: one in Music and the other in Dance and Theater studies.
My undergrad degree is from The Juilliard School and it is in Dance.

I've taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials.

As an Acting teacher I have the capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I'm a membe
r of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and have studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London.

For Dance, I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. In Juilliard I specialized in historical dance of the French Court which is also known as pre-ballet. At present I am studying Tango and other ballroom forms and can teach the beginning levels as well as help choreograph for weddings or events. Of course I also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance. I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make their own dances is very fulfilling.
For the Visual Arts I teach Abstract Painting as well as Installation and Performance Art.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.

My fees: I start at a higher fee and after you've been a regular student we can lower the fee for you if you need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!

As a professional actor on stage and screen, I can help you prepare for auditions. We will go over sides or monologues.

About Rachel
I have performed at multiple venues in New York City, including Carnegie Hall and Off-Broadway. I studied opera performance and musical theater at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ and acting at Primary Stages. Along with these qualifications, my positive spirit and belief in my students has yielded outstanding results in their musical accomplishments.

I've been teaching voice, guitar, and piano lessons for the past four years, as well as coaching students for specific auditions (school plays, national tours, honors choir auditions). Let me aid you in achieving your dreams!

*** Lesson Details ***
As a performer, I have learned that "learning" is never done in this field. Even as a professional, I still take private voice lessons, dance classes, and acting classes. As well as the occasional piano, guitar, and dialect coachi
ng.

My teaching style is based off of my many years of being a student to some of the finest performers in the world. I am direct and focused, but like to keep my students relaxed. My key to teaching success is adapting to each student's specific needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
At my home studio in Jersey City, NJ and at my studio in midtown Manhattan I have a: Keyboard (piano at studio in Manhattan); Guitar; Pitch Pipe; Laptop with speakers; Mirror

*** Travel Equipment ***
If travelling to your home, I would require you have a keyboard. I can bring my guitar and pitch pipe.

My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

About Carolyn
A graduate of Fordham University at Lincoln Center as well as The Juilliard School's Drama Division, I have been teaching and coaching students for over 10 years.

I have a broad range of students that include young actors here in New York, as well as students applying to high school, college theater, and conservatory training programs.

Each series of sessions begins with an assessment of the student's needs. The Series is then tailor-made for the student based on their individual goals.

All sessions last an hour and can be done in person at a studio location in Manhattan or via Skype. Every session begins with vocal/physical warm-up, brief imaginative work, and then detailed text analysis in connection to the piece.

Past clients of mine have been accepted to NYU's Undergraduate Theater Program, Carnegie Mellon, Fordham, and
Fiorello LaGuardia High School. I've served as a member of the Theater faculty for Harlem School of the Arts, Henry Street Settlement, and The Kentucky Center for the Arts. And I am currently a Guest Artist for Manhattan Theater Club's Education Dept.

I coach because I care about the work. Dedication to my students comes from a deep love for what I do, and the possibility that I can help inspire them through the work as well.

Carolyn has been such a gift to work with! I'm currently in college for acting and when I went to her for help on getting over a block in my progress I not only noticed but physically felt a difference in my acting technique. I've now had multiple classes with her and will be continuing classes with her because she has helped me develop my technique in ways some of my schooling hasn't. She's also been very flexible with figuring out dates and times for our next class which has been important for me with my busy schedule. I've had online classes with her and in person (which she lets me know when she's in the city in case I want to do an in person class) and both ways have been beneficial for me. I truly believe you will see valuable growth as a performer if you take lessons with Carolyn!!

Students should be expected to be pushed passed their limits, to feel so uncomftorable it becomes natural. Acting is all about showing private moments in public, so be ready to do things you didnt even think acting involved. It is a sport so be prepared to work-out! physically, Vocally, and Emotionally.

Julia was my college audition coach to get into acting school, and I am confident that she is the reason I got into the schools I did. I met with her on Skype once a week for about a year/year and half. She coached me on all of my monologues and even gave me acting coaching on songs. She helped me find almost all of my monologues, and was particularly helpful in coaching me on scansion and Shakespeare! Not only did she do all of this, but going through the college audition process herself and being trained at Juilliard, she prepared me for what to expect before I went in to my first audition. She is an absolutely wonderful teacher and would highly recommend her to anyone going through this experience. I am now a Sophomore Acting Major at Syracuse University which was ranked the number 8 acting school in the world this year. I also got into drama schools in Europe. Thank you Julia!! <3

Frank is an extremely knowledgable, open, and approachable teacher! He helps you discover your truth in a piece without imposing any preconceived notions about what is "good". I always feel comfortable asking any questions with Frank. Our conversations would range freely from artistic and creative choices to the business of acting. I believe his friendly and open approach is important for creative discovery while working on your craft with a teacher in a nurturing and safe environment! I also like how he has a very modern approach to teaching with classical training in mind. Overall, Frank will challenge you, bring out the truth in you, and help you work through all of the questions you have!

I have studied, worked as an actress and a director and taught in Berlin, London and New York - both in theater and opera. I was the first person to ever be offered the Juilliard Opera directing Fellowship two years in a row (where I worked primarily with Postgraduate students) and have worked with actors and singers across the country as well as in several German A-houses. After studying a variety of acting methods over the years, I have developed my own method of approaching a character or an audition monologue/song, which encompasses the physical, emotional and intellectual in order to create an easily accessible three-dimensional person. I will not only help you apply said method, but also teach you the tools so you may access it on your own at any time. Finally, I have received critical acclaim as a young director, and - as a teacher - I have a track record of helping people get hired from major auditions.

About Ophelie
I am a professional stage director, who has worked in Germany, England and the across United States. I have worked with singers as well as actors, as a teacher, assistant director and director.

I graduated as an Associate of King’s College London with a degree in Philosophy and significant experience acting and directing for independent theater companies in London.

I then went on to work as an assistant director in major German opera houses, where I learned how to apply the same teaching and dierecting methods with singers.

At only 23 I was offered the Juilliard Opera Directing Fellowship - and I was the first person, to whom it was offered two years in a row. At Juilliard, I mostly worked with the few selected Postgraduate students.

I have considered accepting an adjunct teaching position, but chose to go on directing and teaching pr
ivately instead. My students have repeatedly gotten hired for auditions I coached them for (amongst other places at the Metropolitan Opera) and gotten great reviews for jobs I coached them on.

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out
