Michelle was great! So kind and patient. I went into my class not knowing any singing at all, and she taught me so much in just one lesson! She was always smiling and helping you out. I would definitely recommend her to anyone nervous about singing in front of people or who want a patient instructor and want o learn!

Since the first day, I've seen such an improvement in technique and confidence. She is very encouraging and supportive. I never felt hurried or forced. It has been a delight to be on this journey with Majorie.

I just started taking lessons with Marjorie and I've seen a difference already in the way I approach singing. She is good at teaching technique and it works! The bonus is all the fun you'll have while learning. Needless to say, I signed up for more lessons.

I was searching for a coach for my daughter who just loves acting and musical theater and fortunately for us we found Mia here at “takelessons”
This is a whole new world for us as I don’t know anything about this industry so I really didn’t know how to begin to help my daughter pursue her passion
I read Mia’s bio and I knew immediately that she would be a perfect fit for my daughter
Lucky for us she was less than an hour away so I signed my daughter up for lessons not really sure what to expect
My daughter is a senior in high school and just loves acting. She was involved in the plays at school but she had no experience singing and wanted to try
Mia has the experience in musical theater and she is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and genuinely cares about her students
My daughter has grown so much in the short time that she has worked with Mia
She recently auditioned and was accepted to the college she was hoping to attend
Working with Mia gave her the skills and the confidence to be able to accomplish this goal
I can’t say enough about Mia!

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting
Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense.
