About Chris
Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and personally. In addition to teaching singing and acting for over 10 years I have performed in numerous Broadway shows, West End shows, and National Tours throughout the US and Canada. I am presently a working actor. I received my education from the University of Michigan's School of Music. Whether you are a first time singer/actor or an established professional I love students who are excited to absorb new ideas and attempt to grow in ways they hadn't thought possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are unique to each individual. I tend to cater
my lesson plan to each students goals, experience, and age. I believe that there is no one way to teach or one way to learn. Trying numerous exercises and coming up with creative ways to help students assimilate new material and concepts is a core part of my teaching philosophy. Above all learning should be fun and exciting. I will do my best to create a safe open atmosphere where a student of any age level can succeed in achieving their learning goals.

Musical Theatre is my passion and my forte, however in order to teach singing or acting proper technique must be established.

*** Studio Equipment ***
living area open space seating for parents, Keyboard

Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

About Nicholas
I am 31 years old actor-singer-writer-teacher-podcaster. I was born and raised in North Huntington, Pennsylvania. I knew at a very young age that I wanted to pursue a career in the arts. I believe that music fosters self-expression, intelligence, and creativity, and I cannot imagine a life without it.

Teaching music, acting, and singing is something that brings me great joy, I am passionately committed to my students and love the challenges and rewards that teaching has to offer!

Training and Experience:

I am a classical trained singer and musical theater actor. I studied vocal performance at Slippery Rock University with Dr. Colleen Gray. While I was at Slippery Rock I had the opportunity to perform in a variety of plays, musicals and operas.

My favorite roles include Seymour Krelbourn in Little Shop of Horrors, Cliff Brads
haw in Cabaret, and Jacques in Shakespeare's As you like it. I also had significant roles in Slippery Rock's main stage operas including King Melchior in Amahl and the night Visitors and Dr. Falked in Die Fledermaus.

I've also had the opportunity to perform in Bellini's i capuleti e i Montecchi (The Capulets and the Montagues) with the Pittsburgh Opera Chorus at the Benedum Center. After college I performed at Busch Gardens Williamsburg as a singer in their Italian shows as well as their Christmas Show.

In the past 8 years, I have performed in operas, plays and musicals regionally around the country including Florida, New Hampshire, Connecticut and New York City

Since my return to Pittsburgh, I played have played Reverend Shaw Moore in The Lamp Theater's production of Footloose. More recently, I just finished a productions of The Hunchback of Notre Dame in February and Disney's Tarzan with Pittsburgh Musical Theater.

This Summer, I will be returning to the The Lamp Theater to play Teen Angel in their production of Grease.

I taught private voice in college and at The Centerstage Academy of Performing Arts when I lived in Williamsburg. I recently moved back to Pittsburgh after living in New York City for just under three years. and I am ready to get back into private teaching!

I specialize in teaching classical voice, musical theater, audition preparation, monologue preparation, and performance preparation. I have taught students both individually and in a group setting. The ages of my students have ranged anywhere from third grade to men and women into their sixties. As someone who has been in the business for a little over six years, I am confident that I have the tools to teach and prepare any student who has the passion, commitment and work ethic that it takes to succeed.

About Carissa
Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, acting, and playwriting daily. After that, I earned a spot in, and graduated from, the BFA Acting program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After taking a year to work professionally in theatre and television, I moved to Ireland to earn my MFA in Playwriting from The Lir Academy (an affiliate school of London's RADA). Teaching has been a big part of my life, from private study to running theatre camps for kids. I'm well versed in the drama school audition trail and would love to help you prepare fo
r this exciting time! I also offer playwriting lessons/critique, and beginner lessons in dance (ballet, jazz, tap). I look forward to hearing from you!

About Camila
My name is Camila, and I am an actor. Some may think I am nuts for choosing the arts but really... I'd be nuts if I didn't. I knew I would be an actress when I was 5 years old and I have never looked back.

I grew up in Arizona, performing in every theater production I could find. In my teen years, modeling with Ford Agency connected me to my first TV gig. That little production got me connected with my first acting agent in Los Angeles and I moved out to pursue my dreams at age 17.

As soon as I turned 18, I booked the LEAD in a Nickelodeon pilot. The show was not picked up, and thank goodness, because I was not ready for stardom!
Through the years, I have worked on single and multi cam comedy, drama, procedurals, indie film, and many more. Now if that sentence means nothing to you... don't worry! I can teach you all about it in
our first session together ;)

I have trained in Meisner Technique, Method acting, Cold Reading, Scene Study, Audition Technique, Improv, Sitcom technique, Sense memory, and the list goes on. I have had television roles on the CW, CBS, ABC, Freeform, TNT, HBO, and FOX! And with all of that said, the most valuable work I have ever done, is the work I did on myself.

The industry in Los Angeles has tested every one of my insecurities, abilities, and beliefs. And with every test, I have come out the other side with newfound strength, determination, and inspiration! Coaching actors is a skill I enjoy, and seeing my students succeed with JOY, CONFIDENCE, and PASSION brings immeasurable value to my own career. I believe in creating in community and have hosted an acting group for years now. One of which is filled with actors you can see on your TV and movie screens today! Teamwork makes the dream work and I am on your team, from the very moment we meet.

At the end of the day, humans just want to create beautiful art that impacts the world and I want to help you do just that. I want to guide you into living an even more abundant life, full of purpose and joy.
