Having been on stage for countless productions of all varieties (operas, musicals, straight plays) I know that acting ability can never be over-emphasized. It can be the pivotal difference between an alright performance and a fantastic performance! Let's get you a monologue and work on your acting chops!

I’ve been taking lessons from Elizabeth for a few months now - I had done voice lessons growing up and am now starting to get back into singing. She has been very helpful, and I really feel like I’ve been improving quickly! She’s very knowledgeable about vocal technique and has been great about helping me strengthen my weak spots and break bad habits.
Judit
Elizabeth is a very nice and competent vocal trainer. She always encourages me to try new exercises that help me a lot to improve my singing skills. I also feel very comfortable taking classes with her, and I think that one of the basic things for me when it comes to learn how to sing, a nice atmosphere is necessary to grow faster. She is also helping me with my English pronunciation. I would definitely recommend her.
Nadine Z.
Elizabeth is an amazing tutor. She is very friendly and funny and makes you feel comfortable doing all kinds of exercise. She collaborated with me on what I wanted/needed to work on most. She helped me improve singing a song that I chose through many elaborated techniques. I learned a lot even though I only took two lessons (because I left the country after that).

After 3 years of a extremely bad brake up with musical theatre. It was really nice to be back at it and Carolyn made me feel comfortable enough to actually take my first dance lesson in 4 years.
Paul H.
i have been working with Carolyn for the past couple of years and she is excellent. Clearly very skilled and a very experienced teacher. Very patient as well, especially when I have not had much time to practice. She totally understands I have work commitments that take priority.
I enjoy every lesson and I am so pleased that I can pick up music scores and play with confidence. I thoroughly enjoy each class.

Joe is amazing when he gives vocal lessons. His examples are spot on. His ability to read into your strengths and weaknesses helps you to customise your lesson and focus on those aspects that'll give you quick and sustainable results. Thank you Joe.

So far my daughter is pleased and is looking forward to working with Joe. She has only had 1 lesson so far but it was smooth sailing and all went well.

He is so incredibly talented himself and passionate about acting and it makes the student even more passionate. He took time to personally help each student and didn't just address us as a whole. His class is fun and very very helpful! He also teaches you about some of the business and tips for auditioning, its not just acting, he is amazing and i miss his class always:)!He also took headshots for my class which I've gotten parts with!:) Everyone take his class!"
