I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more 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.

Jessica
Acting class was so much fun! I wanted to try something different to challenge myself & my friends recommended I try an acting class because I’m so “extra” as they put it. Well I finally got up the nerve to try a class & J was so helpful & worked with me to feel comfortable. He never made me feel like I couldn’t do it, plus it was so fun that I can’t wait to try another class. If you are a beginner like myself than he is the perfect instructor for you.
Tim Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with J. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little apprehensive at first but by the time I finished the session I was at ease. He broke things down to where I could understand being a novice, and made me feel like I belonged! I highly recommend J to anyone who wants to really learn about the true art of Acting!!

Online Improv Acting Teacher

When it comes to Improv Acting, students will play tons of games to help develop the ability to improv quickly. We spend the majority of the time working on ways that students will be put into a scenario: stunt doubles, super hero's, occupations, family dynamics, animals, food, famous media and literature characters. We will focus on the extremes of these characters in the scenes. Students love to improv, as a way to develop confidence, stage presence, which will help with any type of acting. Improv is one of my many favorites with acting students. Always help students feel successful. Consider acting lessons and specifically improv acting as an option.
