Stage and film acting for adults, teens, and kids using a variety of techniques. Audition prep, monologues, dialects, movement coaching, improvisation, and other fundamentals are addressed.

About Emily
I am a full-time pedagogue/performer with ten years' experience teaching private lessons in voice, piano, and acting to a range of ages and levels of students. Although the majority of my students are young adults, I have worked successfully with children, teenagers, and adult students (twenties to senior citizens) of both genders; I tailor my approach specifically to the goals and interests of each student; no two people learn the same way.
I hold a Bachelor's of Music in vocal performance from West Virginia University (summa cum laude, WVU Outstanding Senior, Honors College J. and C. Nath Outstanding Senior, Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships candidate) and a Masters' degree in Sacred Music (organ emphasis) from Duquesne University. I regularly perform as a soloist in opera, oratorio, concerts, and recitals and completed training throu
gh the Ezio Pinza Concil for American Singers of Opera in Italy, the American Singers' Opera Project of North Carolina, and the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria.
As a teacher, I completed a year-long vocal pedagogy course with Cynthia Bess which provided me with a thorough understanding of the anatomy and psychology of singing, as well as a systematic approach to the correction of vocal faults. One of my students, a teen-aged boy, was selected to attend Eastman's summer program for high school students, and another student received a full college scholarship in music. Several of my students have performed leading roles in school, community, and university musical productions.
I hold a full voting membership in the National Association of Teachers of Singing, am a Licensed Kindermusik Educator, am employed as Director of Music Ministry for a fairly large church, and am a chapter officer for the American Guild of Organists. I was also a teaching artist at Propel East Charter School for Greensburg American Opera and directed the Old Economy Singers (a twenty-voice historical choir) for six years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I provide professional, knowledgeable, and individualized instruction in a supportive and encouraging environment. During the course of study with me, I expect voice students will improve vocal technique and sound quality, alleviate physical tension which may be interfering with phonation, expand their range, learn new repertoire, increase confidence, and grow as performing artists.
My vocal teaching method focuses on correct breathing and resonance; I also incorporate some activities from Barry Green's "Inner Game of Music" technique. Although my teaching is grounded in a scientific approach to the process of phonation, I also believe singing should be a fun experience for the student. We sing to communicate! I believe that a thorough technical foundation is necessary for free and healthy singing in any genre of music. I am willing to work with students in the vocal styles that interest them most; although my professional performance experience is in opera and musical theatre, I have also successfully worked with students whose interests included jazz, pop, rock, folk music, contemporary Christian music, and choral singing.
My piano pedagogical method matches each student with the right curriculum-- Alfred, Schaum, or Piano Adventures-- plus supplemental technical exercises such as scales, arpeggios, and Czerny and Hanon exercises. All students are exposed to theory through worksheets, games, and other applied activities. As soon as possible, I introduce "real" repertoire from master composers.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand piano, electronic piano, music library, photo copier for copies of repertoire, music stands, Sing and See software.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide copies of music and exercises. If I am teaching at a student's home, I expect him/her to provide a keyboard instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I believe that a strong technical foundation emphasizing correct breathing and placement will allow voice students to sing in a healthy manner in any style of music. My professional performance credentials are primarily in opera, but I also have musical theatre experience and have successfully worked with students whose interests include opera, musical theatre, jazz, pop, rock, gospel, Irish folk music, and choral singing. In piano lessons, I emphasize technique and musicianship through a balance of exercises, repertoire, and theory activities.

What I DIDN'T Know

Emily is an awesome coach and instructor. Yes I said coach! A coach actually encourages you, and that is what she did for me. Anyway, as for the title, "What I DIDN'T Know", there were things in film auditions that I didn't know that would were actually sabotaging my chances for auditions. Emily worked on these real quick and fixed them up.Long story short, I had an audition yesterday, and using Emily's lessons's the casting director said, "Wow, that was actually really good"

I'll show you how to develop a character or read a scene with another scene partner so you're confident at an audition. I'll help you choose good monologues and show you how to "cold read" a dialogue at an audition. Based on my education at Columbia I have lots of techniques to offer!

About Chrissy
Originally born in Germany, Chrissy developed a passion for music, language and teaching early on. Right out of High School she helped her mother, who was an educator at that time, write and stage-manage a children's Musical which found great response from the audience. During her Music studies in the Netherlands she was offered an internship at the local Music School which she gratefully accepted and where she enjoyed her first voice coaching experience. There she was also nominated as one of the most promising young singer/songwriters at the LUX Festival in Nijmegen. Over the years she was blessed with more and more private students in voice as well as piano. During her stay in New York she received the opportunity to work with a Broadway show ensemble ("Dreamgirls") as a Music Director on their different harmonic parts. She's proudly b
een a member of the Music of Oz Studio staff in Crown Point, Indiana since Jan. 2011 and is looking forward to teaching out of her home now as well. Chrissy is crazy about all her students and wants them to succeed! She's very much looking forward to working with you and having buckets of fun! :-)

Here is a brief list of areas that I specialize in teaching when it comes to acting:

*Scene work
*Monologue work
*Dialect coaching
*Acting through song
*Character Analysis

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.

After twenty years of teaching all ages, from the shy to the outgoing, I can teach students how to discover themselves and their full potential. We'll do this through theatre games, improvisation, confidence building exercises, scene study, monologue study, audition techniques, characterization and so much more. I'll provide a positive and encouraging environment in which real techniques can be applied.

I thought as a theatre teacher that I didn't have much more to learn. I was wrong. Vandi has given me the confidence to sing. I hid in the altos for years and she helped me find the wider range I was seeking. She includes great visualizations in her lessons which helps a visual learner like me. I have the confidence to trust my breath and sing in ways I never thought possible. She is a wonderful teacher. Take lessons from her!

I loved working with Joanne! She directed me in a play(Sex In Manhattan) and I really enjoyed and benefited from her ability to direct. She was motivating and inspiring and gave excellent notes for me as an actor. I just returned from being oversea for many years as I was acting in action movies in Asia and one of the first people I contacted was Joanne to see what she was working on. I would love to work on another play if she puts something up and would recommend any actor to try and audition or take classes from her. Thanks Joanne and if your back in LA let me know if you have anything for me to come and audition, great luck!
