Larry and his wife are so friendly and knowledgeable. I came away from my first lesson feeling much more confident in my ability and encouraged to develop it further. They critiqued my current ability without being mean or hurtful, and they gave me plenty of positive feedback on the things I'm doing right. Being self-taught will only get you so far. Having an actual instructor who can create a plan based on your specific needs is invaluable. I highly recommend.

Baltimore, MD

Acting since age 8. Lead and supporting roles, chorus, and improv.

About Detrece
DeTrece "Dee" Lavender is a native of Miami, Florida. When her family moved to Sarasota, she was afforded the opportunity to study music and the performing arts as a student of the Westcoast School/Henry L. Porter School of Music. It was then that Dee began to understand the power of the creative arts as an effective form of emotional expression and release. By middle school, DeTrece began fine tuning her natural talents by studying classical voice which earned her several starring roles in the Sarasota Youth Opera, The Aslo Theater and the Players Theater. She is also a proud former member of the Westcoast Black Theater Troop in Sarasota, FL. Under the caring leadership of these opportunities, she was able to combine musical and life experiences in order to offer a more well rounded educational and musical experience for her students.


She was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she received a dual Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy and Vocal Performance (Class of 2003). It was through her service as a music therapist, Millieu (residential) counselor and music teacher in the Boston City Public Schools/Greater Boston Metropolitan Area, that she began to feel the call toward a greater understanding of the gravity and role of the socio-emotional needs of students (and their families/villages) in urban settings. This call brought her to Baltimore, MD where she enrolled in the Pastoral Counseling Masters of Science program at Loyola University. In addition to her studies, she currently teaches Elementary and Middle School choir/ Musicianship teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools through the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids Program. She also serves as Minister Of Music and Arts at two local churches.

I have now attended 5 lessons with Sarah and after one month, I learnt the correct techniques to breathe & sing. Certainly realized there's less to no pain in my throat compared to before lessons, and also have increase range comfortably. Sarah has different exercises to really help. Looking forward next to project my voice and singing consistently with the right techniques!

James Wagner is actually the best teacher of creative work I've ever had in any field, and as a writer/ filmmaker/ musician dude, I have had a lot! His teaching is rigorous, passionate, and results-driven, while remaining flexible and sensitive at the same time. His knowledge of acting and theatre theory is endless. He is always trying to expand the possibilities in his classes, bringing in guest speakers, and facilitating unexpected exercises. He is also an inspiring, warm hearted person. Kate and I started a theatre company with actors we all met in his classes, so that should tell you something. I honestly would not be the same person had I not encountered his generous vision of acting and theatre. You cannot go wrong by having him as a coach or teacher.

I met James when I took his class at Berkeley Rep (Eugene O'neill scene studies). I immediately knew he was the kind of Acting coach I'd want to train me, the level of professionalism and high standards is invaluable. During a short trip to LA, I met with James for a 3 hours coaching in which we created a 3 year plan to go from Student actor to working actor this was followed up with some online (Skype) sessions. Next I took another scene study with James at Berkeley Rep in which we workshopped Contemporary plays, James in a kind, professional way was able to push me to the level he knew and expected his students to be. And recently I took an Actor's retreat end of last year, again I left the retreat so inspired and motivated. I can tell you now that I have been in a few Theatre productions, I have and continue to meet the goals we set out for me sooner than what we had mapped out. I couldn't have done it without James vast knowledge of acting and motivation. I highly recommend you study with James!

I've studied with James in both a workshop context, and one-to-one on-line. Both were very valuable and enjoyable experiences. James is a very skilled actor, a very learned man, and an insightful teacher and director. Each element of his teaching is a different expression of a life that is clearly committed to his art as an actor. I found working with him to provide a deep new view of the playwright we studied (Albee in our case), and a very supportive guide to my personal work as an actor. I can highly recommend him.

We will cover any basic or cater the lesson to the students needs. I have experience with Monologue Prep., Self-Taping, Auditioning, Shakespeare, and more. We will connect the dots of our breath, emotions, history, passion, talents, and wants. We can also cover a strategy for the pursuit of a more involved acting career.

As an actor/director myself, I know the obstacles in and out the audition/rehearsal room. We juggle so much in this career path, and it can seem impossible, but my goal in life is to empower actors to take their career into their own hands and extend it. I aim to foster and introduce tools and resources to give the actor more comfort and confidence in the audition room and life.

Contact me for any more questions or references! I hope to see you soon!

About Jake
What drives me to wake up every day, is to supply actors with a safe space to grow and learn trusted actor tools and resources. I want to foster, the lessons I've been taught and learned, and help the actor change their path and careers. I love meeting new artists, collaborating, and getting results.

I'm a producer/actor/director who combines that with my passion of being a life-coach. I attended the high ranking, UNCSA, Royal Shakespeare Company, UCB, and have private coached for 5+ years.
I know the juggling that happens with the life of an actor and have the experience and ability to help you navigate it. During my private coaching, I've had successes such as: Master of None, Hawaii 5-0, Off-Broadway Plays, Julliard, DePaul, and more. My private coaching has helped clients book roles, extend their network, find longevity and purpo
se in the acting pursuit and life.

I have extensive experience and teaching exp. in: Shakespeare, Monologues, EPA's, Self-taping, Improvisation, Auditioning, Winning the room, Meisner, College auditions, Stanislavsky, and more.

I worked for 7 years at an NC theatre before starting teaching privately. I have extensive experience in directing and private acting coaching with all ages. I love working with children and teenagers, and helping them break free of inhibitions to get to the next level. Let's make some magic!

About Alyssa
I'm a singer and actress from Raleigh, North Carolina. I have extensive experience in the theatre world including assistant teaching, musical directing, assistant directing and interning. I have received numerous vocal awards over the years, from organazations such as NATS and Hal Leonard. In addition, I have been cast in many professional shows, and training programs. Let me know if you'd like to see a copy of my resume.

When studying with me, a student can expect to feel heard and understood. I can work with any vocal issue, including tension, breathing, resonance, etc. While my specialty is healthing belting, I also have a history of classical training, which I use when teaching legit musical theatre styles. I am still in the industry, and so have a finger on the pulse of what directors, casting agents and studios are looking for.

In
addition to musical theatre, I also teach pop, jazz and worship styles. Each voice is unique and beautiful, and I will work with you to become the best (and healthiest) that you can be while still staying true to your natural sound.

Whether you are at a professional level, or just looking to have some fun, I would love to work with you. As your teacher, I can create a customized warm-up track for your voice, which will help you improve daily. This can be used throughout the week to practice. Upon request, I can also send a weekly "homework" packet with a written summary of our lesson that day. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more relaxed approach, I can do that as well. Whether you want to be pushed or start slow, I'll be right there with you.
