Ben Goldstein
My teenager son loves his singing lessons with Kara. He has been going for a couple months and I have noticed a rapid improvement in his singing. I highly recommend Kara she is a great teacher and very friendly. My son is always looking forward to his next lesson, it is the highlight of his week. Thank you so much Kara for the great work you do!
Jade
I am a college level jazz musician.
My primary instruments are jazz guitar and upright bass.
Growing up I have always wanted to sing but never could find a qualified teacher.

Luckily, after extensive research online for vocal teachers I discovered Kara.
I have been taking lessons with her for a while now and she's wonderful.
I always have many questions for her in my lessons and she always has a knowledgable response.

I feel like I'm progressing and finally learning how to sing properly with someone who knows their stuff.

I would highly recommend studying with her.

Erik is a teacher, when I say teacher I mean someone who makes up a lesson plan on the spot, so that you'll be prepared for your next session.

Kudos for Erik,
Nathan F.
Erik made an excellent first impression with our beginner level 9-year-old son. Erik’s knowledge and experience, mixed with his teaching style, seem to be a good fit for him.

I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.
Thomas S.
Sandra was terrific ... it's been ages since I did any singing and she made me feel very comfortable reengaging. I'm really looking forward to working with her going forward.

Hello! I'm Dominic R. (though I'm commonly known as "that guy" to very close friends) and I'm an artist. I'm an actor, teacher, singer, comedian, writer, graphic designer, and a really, horribly novice ukulele player.

I. LOVE. ACTING. And I love sharing my passion for that with other people, actors and non-actors alike.

In my acting coachings, I utilize many different exercises to make sure that each student has the knowledge and techniques required for them to feel completely, fearlessly themself. Every artist approaches their craft differently, but in acting, honesty is everything. Together, we'll discover what that means for you and how to make you shine your brightest light on stage or on camera.

Topics Include:
On-Camera Acting
On-Stage Acting
Musical Theatre Coachings
Audition Prep
Comedic Writing and Performance
Cold Reading Skills
and more!

This is for choirs and group vocal lessons. My teaching curriculum emphasizes on proper breathing and vocal placement to ensure vocal improvement within a few weeks of lessons. All of these terms may sound scary, but I believe that singing should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life and those around you. I teach all genres of music and specialize in audition preparation. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a blast.

About Bebé

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Broward College with an Associates Degree in Music Technology and dual -majoring in Vocal Performance. My primary instruments are Voice and Piano, but I also play guitar and trumpet. All of my students can ex

Bebé is great, hands down, I have so much fun in every lesson and actually feel like I am growing as as singer. She takes the time to make sure that I understand each exercise and feel comfortable singing.
Jaimie Walsh
Fine. Didn’t fill lessons to fullest. Felt like exercises followed a regimen instead of doing exercises best for the student. Don’t think she fully listened to me singing.
Michael T.
I SUCK at singing and to be honest I thought that I would never be able to sing. I got tired of hiring singers for my music and woke up one day and said to myself that I would take lessons instead and after searching I had a resonating feeling with Bebe's personality and I was right. I have had some major improvements, those of you that think that you can't sing don't fret about it trust the process. I wanted to try out take lessons for a little bit and then call it a day but now I know that I will be sticking around because not only are the lessons helpful their super fun! Thank you, Bebe! You are awesome! <3
