"I find Yvette method of approaching a actor more detail with Technique of improving the actor in developing a character. Every aspect of the character is
develped body movment, entrance, exiting, relating with another character. She is very devoting to her craft and giving her best insight to help the actor. She is a excellent teacher of acting. I recomemd her highly. Although I am a sesonal actor, she has helped me to improve technique of my craft, that I might have over looked, which only improve me even better as an actor. She is good in my book."

"I've had the pleasure of working with Anthony for almost a year now and it has been the best decision I've ever made. Anthony is the type of teacher that
knows your potential and will do everything he can to push your skills to the next level. He challenged me on my diction, reading lines out-loud, and taught me techniques on how to understand the character I was playing in ways I never would have thought. I can't say enough amazing things about him!"

I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to
become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Preparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.
*** Lesson Details *** I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.
*** Travel Equipment *** Just my own guitar and amp they need their own equipment.
*** Specialties *** Classical, flamenco, rock, heavy metal guitar. I have also developed new classical guitar techniques that I call the "trem" stroke and the "harpeggio"

Initially impressed with Charles video displaying his prowess with the guitar. Even further impressed with his patience with my over eager 9 yr. Old on her first lesson. And he is a local talent!

Very comfortable. Has great ability to adapt to individual growth rate.
*** Travel Equipment *** Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.
*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 20 years, and have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years. I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christo
pher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I teach Suzuki piano and violin. I am an accomplished composer/songwriter with many published and recorded songs and instrumental works through ASCAP. I endeavor to make learning fun, and enjoy teaching students of all ages!
Online student requirements: A fast, reliable COMPUTER; HIGH SPEED INTERNET (at least 400 kbps); SKYPE software; WEBCAM (preferably HD); MICROPHONE (most laptops or tablets have mikes built in). Be sure your camera is focused on you and your instrument, if applicable.

Shakespearean Acting ·
April Feld is the ultimate guide for dialects and Shakespearean verse.
Via phone or skype her work illuminates the process as she joins the client in exploring with absolute clarity.
I have utilized her skills while in performance as Mrs. Higgins in MY FAIR LADY, in my Titanic inspired one person show and as Queen Margaret in Richard III.
I first worked with her in Providence Rhode Island and later in London, England, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New York City.
She is a delight to work with! I recommend her without reservation.
K. Marcella Branch August 9, 2016
I have taken a lot of acting classes in my lifetime. But my experience with April as my acting coach was by far the best education I have ever had. She really personalizes every lesson to give you the best direction and expertise possible so you can create characters that are believable and realistic. April also has given me some really valuable pointers to use during auditions that have helped me to get noticed by casting directors. She is a genuine talent and a wealth of information. I don't know what I would do without her.
Seeyali Siingh August 9, 2016
I enjoyed learning from April. She thorough, patient and very understanding. She gives herself 100% to the student. I learnt some Acting skills and also Accent reduction from her. I keep coming back to her. I would definitely recommend her.
