About Arlys

Are you a singer or speaker who would like a more powerful, authentic voice? My focus is to assist you in finding an easier way to sustain your best posture, breath support, resonance and pitch control by bringing awareness to existing vocal habits while providing a hands-on experience adjusting those habits. My mission is to help you find your most relaxed & elongated posture, breath support, full resonance and best pitch control.

My specialty as a professional voice teacher is Contemporary Commercial Music [CCM] which encompasses genres & sub-genres from Pop, Country, Hip/Hop, Folk, Rock, R&B, Soul, Gospel, EDM [electronic dance music], etc.

I grew up singing freely and naturally until I destroyed my voice thru improper, frequent overuse. I believed my career was over, but it was just starting. Private lessons with vocal professio

nals coupled with academic studies rebuilt my perception of how I was generating sound and their training gave me back MY VOICE, for which I am forever grateful. I combine knowledge from these studies and my own vocal exploration to re-build my voice in exercises that I share with students of voice.

I CAN HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS: My cross-training in dance, yoga, Tai Chi, commercial & improvisational acting provides a well-rounded platform from which to deliver information, guide vocal explorers and also help develop talent.

EXPERIENCE:
* 20 years teaching experience
* 12 years living & working in Los Angeles
* A lifetime of performing experience
* 12 years personal private vocal studies master teachers of bel canto & contemporary singing techniques.

LIFE SKILLS: No matter the subject, my focus is also teach skills that can be extrapolated into any area of your life. Life Skills focuses on eradicating negative self-talk and expanding communication skills that help develop confidence, enhancing daily life.

Between performing and my own artistic studies, I have been taking the occasional private voice student since 1997, mostly via referrals from friends and other students. While living in California, one of my voice teachers requested me as her regular substitute at Culver City and Santa Monica Music Schools from 2008-2012, which I felt deeply honored. She said she trusted me with their voices, which encouraged me into full-time voice teaching practice. In June 2012, I returned to Minneapolis and began teaching in my home studio through music services like Take Lessons. Past projects include producing a vocal showcase at The Ritz Theater, musical direction & choreography for a school's 2016 production of the Wizard of Oz; assisting students to prepare for local & national auditions like La Banda, The Voice & American Idol; prepping singers for studio recordings and congratulating a new student who's stepped out of the chorus to land her first lead role!

I am forever grateful to all of my teachers, past and present, for their valuable gifts of knowledge, skill, grace and compassion.

ENJOY LIFE MORE! Singing & dancing improves our quality of life.

Arlys listened well and focused on what my goals are, where I wanted to go with these lessons. I really enjoyed it, she made it fun.

Alfreda B.
I have experienced improvement in my confidence after 5 lessons with Arlys as compared to a decrease in confidence after working with another instructor for near one year (not a TL instructor). I now realize the ability to sing and play piano does not automatically equate to the ability to teach and most especially, the ability to teach someone who was not born a natural singer (such as myself). Arlys is that instructor that embraces where you are and understands the anatomy of the vocal instrument and the science behind making beautiful music (no matter your skills or lack-of). Arlys brings to the table a multitude of experiences that support her teaching style and learning for students with diverse singing backgrounds or no singing background. In a recent session with Arlys, I was introduced to "rock star monitor" which after incorporating it into our lesson, was a boost to my confidence and performance. Arlys is one of my favorite 5 instructors and the only one I am working with one-on-one at this time. I look forward to each lesson and hope she will continue with this teaching platform for a long time to come.

About Jeremy

Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you need to prepare for an audition? Do you want to learn about the business of acting? Script analysis? I can help.

I can help with your audition for performing arts high schools. My students have gotten into the schools of their choice.

If you have training or are a working actor, I can help take you to the next level.

I am a working actor, published playwright and award winning filmmaker. I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. I taught Method Acting, Acting for Camera, Improvisation as well as other classes at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. My

students, both at the Institute and from private coaching, have appeared in independent stage and film productions, TV shows, commercials and Hollywood films.

Acting is the art of bringing a character to life. I use the Lee Strasberg Method, my original exercises and a fun and serious demeanor to help actors express themselves as artists and gain the confidence and skills they need in order to book acting jobs.

My book, "The Young Actor's Handbook", is published by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books. "The Young Actor's Handbook" ignites the beginning actor's creative soul with acting exercises, acting theory, writing exercises and insight into what it means to be an actor. This is a pragmatic manual that guides and informs the young actor, beginning actor, novice acting teacher or anyone who wants to understand acting.

"Jeremy Kruse's book, "The Young Actor’s Handbook", leads the young actor on the correct path. Jeremy is an experienced acting teacher who has broken down acting in an academic way while nurturing the soul of the actor. He understands the emotional aspects of good acting. I commend Jeremy and believe he has accomplished quite a feat in writing "The Young Actors Handbook." - Vincent D'Onofrio

About Melanie

Hello my name is Melanie!! I studied Dance, Kinesiology, and Business at a University, where I graduated in 2018. The past couple of years I have been teaching dance, Spanish, and strength and conditioning classes. I’ve gotten to work with all types of people and have loved the progress each individual has made from them. The most exciting things about all classes I teach is that it’s always a fun process and never do I want you to feel that it’s impossible, I make sure you leave confident because you understand and have progressed already in just ONE class towards your goals and needs. I look forward to helping you succeed and to work with you!

My daughter had a birthday party and she told me all she wanted to do was have her friends come over and have someone teach them dance, and an overall fun dance party at the end! So we went on here and reached out to Melanie and see how she felt about it, she was all in and excited. She came that day and they all had so much fun, and then every so often when the girls come for sleepovers, we contact Melanie to come teach them classes and even do make-up with the girls as she is so skilled at many things! Can't wait to have her over again!

I loved the way Melanie taught and listened to my mother. I set her up for strength and conditioning classes simply to keep her moving more as she is older. She would give my mother exercises for her body to help her stay strong and then again my mother would look forward to her classes each week. Very motivating and inspiring she is!

Melanie is the best Spanish Teacher I have ever had. I had taken classes from others for many years and still struggled with the language. I wanted to hold a little more conversation in Spanish and advance to the levels like I did in her classes. Such a happy and fun instructor! Thank you Señora Melanie.

About Danielle

I have 25+ years of professional acting experience in televison, theater and film. I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where I received a B.A. in Theater and English. I also attended the prestigious National Theater Institute at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT. I am a working actress, acting coach and entrepreneur. I love working one-on-one with students using tools and exercises that I have "collected" over the years. I incorporate these tools along with improvisation, relaxation techniques and long-standing rehearsal exercises all designed to encourage spontaneous, authentic and natural behavior. The tools I use make sense, are easy and fun whether they be used in the rehearsal room, on set or in preparation for an audition.

I have studied Meisner, The “Method” and more classical approaches

to the work yet it was my time spent studying with the late actress/writer/director, E. Katherine Kerr as well as Seth Barrish, founder and co-artistic director of NYC's The Barrow Group, that provided many AHA! moments for me as an actress. It was through their unique and easily relatable approaches to the work that I was able to allow myself to "be" rather than "act".

I have coached one-on-one, taught at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA) as well as given workshops and master classes. My credits include: Television: Person of Interest; The Sopranos; Ugly Betty; Prison Break; All My Children; One Life to Live; Another World, Guiding Light Film: The Brave One; Tadpole. Theater: One Hand Theater, The Summer Fringe, The Barrow Group, Second Stage, Playwrights Horizons, The Lark, H.E.R.E., Studio Arena Theater and has performed live at Town Hall, NYC with Garrison Keillor on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion and can be heard on APHC’s A Pretty Good Joke Tape along with Alison Janney, Paula Poundstone and Roy Blount Jr. I am a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.

I lived in Manhattan for over 20 years and am now back in Fairfield County, CT after 4 years in Los Angeles. I provide one-on-one coaching online from my studio. I work with a wide age range, assorted skill levels and am also available for audition coaching.

About Noemi

Hey!

I am originally from Houston, Texas! I grew up in a lot of performing art schools so I've naturally been inclined to art my whole life. I began dancing when I was 10 yrs old and kept going with it until now! I was a part of a company back home and once I graduated high school I came to college in LA for commercial dance and eventually graduated with a BFA. I've now done a couple of dance jobs with artists out here and I can't wait to continue to grow with my craft and as a person! :)

"Melanie has been giving Dance (Technique) Classes to my daughter for the past year. My daughter joined a Dance Company and I was referred to her by one of
the other dance mothers because my daughter needed to work on her technique and it made a huge difference! My daughter was able to hold her leg tricks and do more turns! With Melanie's guidance and great knowledge on Dance and the body, her technique got better and she also stayed injury safe."

Michael
"Glenn is a fantastic instructor. I was a beginner to acting, but I've really wanted to learn more about the craft for a long time. Glenn broke down the fu
ndamentals of reading, character development, and script analysis to help make a more believable performance. Now we're getting into blocking and developing the physical aspects of a character. I'm learning a great deal and Glenn's patience and encouragement make him the ideal instructor to learn and grow. Highly recommend!"

"Normally, I don't write reviews for teachers until a couple of months have passed, but I acquiesce as TakeLessons keep on spamming me to write a review. U
nlike other reviews, I'm not going to act as an echo chamber for five-star reviews. This review is based on two months with her after ten one hour online lessons through Skype.

Let's start with the positives. Denise puts in a good amount of effort in teaching you. She's flexible with accommodating your schedule, and she tailors her lessons based on what your goals are. This is evident from her referring to her notes when beginning her lessons with me. She also isn't a clock watcher who makes sure your lesson ends straight on the minute unlike some other teachers.

Is she effective as a speaking voice teacher? So far, yes there has been some progress made. Her methodology might be a bit more different than other speaking voice teachers I studied under. Other teachers focus more on the phonetic sounds, while Denise linger more toward stretches probably due to her dancing background. If you don't like Yoga type of stretches, you may be in for a bad time.

Keep in mind that due to my focus on developing a voice for acting, I'm also not having a pure speaking voice lesson as my lessons are intertwined with monologue work too. If you wish to take speaking voice lessons for public speaking, your mileage may vary.

So why a one-star deduction? Denise at the start can be pushy with trying to sell you more lessons. I mean it goes without saying that of course you'll see improvements faster if you can devote more time to any class, but time and money are factors that everyone should always consider. Let's be frank, private lessons on TakeLessons aren't cheap (unless you're rich of course). I was annoyed when she repeated her tactic three times, enough that it affected my decision to nearly not renew my monthly lessons with her.

She did cease when it seem like I wouldn't budge. Nevertheless, the pushiness did leave my experience a bit tainted, which made me question her sincereness with her excitement and positive reinforcement at times. I continue to give her a chance though because I do feel there's an ongoing improvement with my speech and line delivery. Also because we get along despite being complete opposites in some ways (which seem to frustrate and intrigue her). Despite being my teacher, I see her as a peer in a way because of how close in age we are, but I digress as this review is about her effectiveness as a teacher.

I would recommend giving Denise a try if you’re an actor seeking a speaking voice teacher. In person lessons are still best, but she has proven to be effective as an online teacher despite being a tad pushy with having you buy more lessons from her."
