About Barbee
Welcome to my teacher profile! My name is Barbee and I am an active professional singer with over ten years of piano and voice teaching experience. I enjoy teaching both children and adults. Check out my specialities and see if you think we'd be a good fit! Then, feel free to click "Ask Barbee a Question" if you'd like more information from me!

Both voice and piano lessons are based on a foundation of healthy technique while incorporating musicianship skills and encouraging the student to develop their own creativity. While my focus as a performer is opera and other classical music, I am experienced in teaching Broadway/musical theater, pop, rock, R&B, folk, and other styles and genres. I encourage my students to explore new styles and apply good technique to any style they may choose to sing or play.

I also specialize in helping p
repare singers for auditions for college, performing arts schools, choirs, musicals, and competitions. As an active performer myself I have auditioned many, MANY times for different organizations. I have also been on "the other side of the table" and I know what qualities audition panels are looking for. Several of my current and former students have been accepted to college music programs, performing arts magnet schools, audition-only choirs, and theater programs to continue their studies. Let me help you show your best qualities at your audition!

As a member of both NATS (National Association for Teachers of Singing) and ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) I am constantly working to improve my teaching skills by keeping up with the latest pedagogical research. I love sharing new tips and techniques with my students!

I strive to create a lesson environment that is open and honest, where my students are never afraid to ask questions or try something new. I am always happy to explain concepts in a different way and I encourage improvisation and creativity in addition to healthy technique and strong musicianship.

In-home lesson equipment requirements:
Voice: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; music stand(s); full-length mirror (preferred).
Piano: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; desk or table nearby for written assignments and assessments.
Music theory: Piano (preferred) or keyboard; music stand(s) (preferred); desk or table nearby for written assignments and assessments.

Note: Students are expected to purchase all music, curriculum, and other materials as appropriate. In many cases I can obtain the necessary materials prior to the first lesson and the student/parent can reimburse me at the lesson.

Tiffany is very skilled and proficient at her profession. She is also exceptional at being able to translate and communicate those core competencies and techniques to her students in such a manner that there are specific exercises identified to encourage them to learn, practice and refine their developing skills and talent. My nephew's dramatic presentation has grown significantly during his time of being coached and trained by Tiffany. I would recommend Tiffany, without reservation, as an instructor to anyone who is serious about advancing his or her acting skills.

About Da-Rell
I am a hip-hop/house/contemporary dancer with professional/classical training, an academic background, and a passion for taking my students to the next level. I received my degrees in Dance, Psychology and Philosophy, and use these fields as a framework to help direct and assist students in learning how to train their bodies and minds in many different disciplines. I've lived in many cities and always learned each city's dance styles.
I can teach: popping, locking, waving, tutting, liquid, sliding, house, footwork, breakdancing, acrobatics, choreography, improvisation, and theatrical.
I can help you build your own style. A style that specifically pertains to you. I'll show you how to incorporate concepts, themes, and ideas, to tell a story, or to just express yourself through movement and rhythm.
I love teaching, and I love that look i
n a persons face after they get something that was tough. I love helping them understand what they could do differently to yield different results.
If you want to learn hip hop, house, or fusion- I am a very patient yet motivating teacher. I can be strict at times, but only when needed ;-)

Classes focus on ideas and concepts as well as ways to act them out. We learn how to utilize balance, emotion, finesse, attention, and focus to transition between movements. Exploring performing with character, style, technique, and form to develop their own individual philosophies on movement. We dissect different instruments and rhythms to experience them in different parts of the body. Integrating hip hop, ballet, modern, house, and martial arts into one cohesive style.
My goal is to foster artistic growth and to help you surprise yourself!

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!

New York is a HELLUVA town. And as I dance and sing my way around the city, I would love to impart my knowledge and experience to you too!

I've been dancing for nearly 20 years, singing for nearly 15, and have lots of experience taking those talents out into the real world. If you're looking for training in the DANCE world (ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, theatre) or the VOCAL world (musical theatre, classical, pop/rock, or jazz) -- I'm the girl for you. I am spitfire, and a smart coach who simply loves to teach. Let's have some serious fun together, shall we?

About Nicholas
Personally, acting has always been about exploration. I absolutely loved creating stories when I was little and going on adventures. I relished time spent delving into my favorite books and films such as, "Star Wars" and "The Lord of the Rings." It was so exhilarating to dress up as a Jedi Knight and go on an amazing adventure. In a sense, my foundation for creative play started quite young.

While in elementary school, I knew I had a knack for acting when I played the drunkard (much to my family's chagrin) in an abridged version of "Much Ado About Nothing." My guy was a hit! It was here that I learned of my inherent talent for performance.

Fast forward a few years to high school, such an appropriate time to really get into acting: emotions are as high as the drama! I discovered two things in my freshmen year: 1) I couldn't h
it a baseball, so the freshmen team was not for me. 2) I fit in quite well with the theater crowd. I came to this realization after playing violin in the pit orchestra for my high school's performance of "Fiddler On The Roof." I watched everyone on stage and thought, "I would love to do that." I then went on to audition for the next play available.

From there on, it was history. I went on to star in many musicals and plays throughout my high school and college career. I received a B.A. in Theatre from The College of The Holy Cross and more recently, after moving to New York City, I completed a one year acting conservatory.

Over the past year, I have spent my time auditioning and booking many interesting projects ranging from short films to web series. I am constantly working towards my goals of being a full-time working actor in film and television. I do this by keeping my craft honed through teaching others as well as being taught. You never finish learning, especially with acting. I am constantly vigilant and proactive towards furthering my acting career, on the business side as well as the artistic. I genuinely enjoy the process of acting and teaching because both allow me to do what I love. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Nick is a creep. In college he would brag about buying alcohol for minors in his theater classes in exchange for “doing stuff with them”. I heard this first hand from him. Other classy moments include kissing a fellow actor against her will while under the influence of alcohol. Of course his girlfriend broke up with him for this, but he just blamed the whole thing on everyone but himself. What a jackass and a serious perv. Also: Yikes. Having your family members make up phony 5/5 reviews with their real names is quite a hilarious move.

About Traye
Tiffany 'Traye' .M. has a love for dance, teaching, bringing people together & empowering women that are the key ingredients to her private sessions and classes with her company.

As a budding dancer in her childhood she spent countless hours practicing her craft beginning at the prestigious Dance Theater of Harlem where she acknowledged her passion for dance. Went onward to Uptown Dance Academy & then to Harlem Hospital Dance Leadership Program where she found her individuality in the art.

Training as a dancer in New York City, especially in Harlem has offered Traye a freedom of expression like no other. Learning the fundamental techniques such as as Ballet, Jazz & Modern created a great foundation but it wasn't until she was introduced to cultural & street styles that she found her place in dance. African dance, hip-hop, and urba
n burlesque were some styles that stood out to her.

Throughout the years Traye has trained to be an instructor of many dance types. She's taught children and peers since the age of 16; dance routines to cheer leading teams as well as movement coaching for school musicals and performances. Her proudest moments often come from teaching choreography and watching her students execute it instead of performing herself. In her teens she found a keen interest in feminine dance and movement, very sensual, expressive and alluring to the eyes of the audience. Artists such as Beyonce, Janet Jackson and Ciara are big influences on the type of dancing she wants her brand to be known for.

When teaching, the goal is simple, help women find their freedom, their voice and sisterhood in dance.
