Very friendly, easy going, talented, and knowledgable. Just finished my second class and she knows how to make the most out of a 45 minute session. I intend to reach my singing goals with her help sooner rather than later!

Adeola passionately wants her students to find a success story within her class. Whether that personal success is in becoming comfortable with standing in front of an audience or in comprehending and portraying a character's reality, Adeola will help you find progress within yourself and your work. Adeola's energy and drive allows the classroom to be comfortable, yet productive. She strongly attacks the challenge to find easiness and authenticity in acting, which are two important concepts that sit at the foundation of her coaching. Take a lesson and see for yourself where Adeola can take you in your work.
Abby
I had the pleasure to work with Adeola through an intensive this summer, and she was truly amazing! She is kind, optimistic, compelling, and she genuinely wants her students and those she works with to be the best that they can be. Her classroom was always an accepting environment where I felt confident and safe enough to take risks without fear of judgement (which is so important!) Her use of the Meisner technique changed the way that I now breakdown scenes when acting with and directing others. She is phenomenal with helping students emotionally connect with their characters, and she challenges her students to be specific when figuring out their characters objectives and tactics. My only regret is that I didn't get to spend more time with her!
Aisha
Adeola helped me put a few scenes on tape for an audition. She was very helpful with pulling out the best in me for each take. She was patient, kind, and challenged me to focus in and really bring the character to life. I believe she is an exquisite actress and teacher. She has quite the knack for pulling out the best in her students. I highly recommend her for all of your acting needs!

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production C

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!
Sheri
Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

Rebecca immediately made my granddaughter comfortable. Rebecca is a sweet, charming woman who, I can see, works very well with both children and adults. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to make people feel good about themselves.

Bridget is a fantastic teacher. She is easy to understand and very patient. She goes a little to fast so I think she could slow down a bit but otherwise she is a great teacher.
Tamara
Bridget is an amazing piano teacher. My 9 year old daughter loved that she would help her with pop songs as well as the traditional lesson book. She also helped her with voice audition songs for her musical theater group. We highly recommend!

Students of mine can expect growth in public speaking, understanding body language, and all aspects of theatre on the intimate, character building level.
Having studied this in college for 4 years, and working with an Equity house as an acting intern for the last few months, I not only understand theatre in the school dynamic, but also in the "real world". Students will be able to get both of those sides and how to prepare themselves not only for projects or auditions coming up, but for the world and outside auditions.

About Katie

Getting my BFA in Theatre and a minor in Musical Theatre at Wayne State University- I saw a great lack of understanding from theatre students about the world of music! I have been playing an instrument since the 4th grade, and in High School found myself a part of theatre, band, choir and orchestra

I began acting in community theatre when I was seventeen years old. It is something that I am absolutely passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to play some of the characters that I love; Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific"; Anita in "West Side Story"; Eliza Dolittle in "My Fair Lady" and Guinevere in "Camelot," to name a few. I have also been in two independent films.

I will be teaching two group lessons, one on Monday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm and one on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm. Monday nights will be for children and Tuesday nights for adults. I will be welcoming up to five students in each class. During my classes we will learn different acting techniques, among them improv and Stanislavski's Method.

My 30+ years of experience in community theatre and what I have learned from teachers and other actors is what I look forward to passing on to those who are as passionate about acting as I am.

She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things acting. She knows how to push her actors to improve beyond where they thought they could go. She had led me to get multiple Superior ratings at acting competitions. She is familiar with a host of different acting methods including but not limited to those of Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, and Sanford Meisner. I seriously cannot express how grateful I am for her. She had had a profound impact on my life and taught and cared for me in a way no other acting teacher in the world ever could!"
