Maria is by far the perfect person to start this journey with. Her knowledge is phenomenal, and I can't wait to keep growing in my singing abilities!!
Anthony C.
Maria was teaching my daughter opera, she learned a lot and we'll seek her out again to continue. She is an expert in her field. My daughter loved her and everyone she encountered in the music industry wanted to learn how she learned this and how she learned that when we told them they said she had a good teacher. We'll be back Maria. Thanks for all you've shown her.

From the very beginning Stephanie was great! At first, I was very concerned with learning online. Stephanie was patient, considerate, and has a host of information! It was very clear what I needed to work on, and what I could do to accomplish my goal! I was able to get into my college of choice despite starting my journey not long ago!

A classical education makes everything so much easier. There are basic classical rhetorical devices that are easy to use once you understand them and make acting so much more fun and simple. It is 'playing' after all and with these techniques that are just ages old and so ingrained in humanity and nature you will be delighted and challenged.

Belinda and Daniella
Very good first lesson. It was a sound, thorough evaluation, along with a positive, encouraging exchange of ideas and detailed technique work between my child and Ms Gina. Ms Gina gets down to work quickly and kindly. Her depth of knowledge is impressive and refreshing. Amazing lady! Thank you!
Tina R.
Gina is a fantastic teacher. She has an eclectic taste in music which I love. She breaks down steps easily and is very encouraging. She also has many creative and expressive ideas like dancing to lines of poetry to get the body moving. Thank you Gina for the great lessons I will certainly be continuing!

I help my students break down the text through analyzing the iambic pentameter, rhetorical devices, and imaging work of the text. After the analysis, I help my students learn how to perform Shakespeare in a truthful, interesting, and accessible way.

"Not only is Kelsey proficient and very knowledgeable, she also has so much enthusiasm and an obvious love for teaching. She put me at ease right away and from the very beginning showed such excitement to be working with me. She comes prepared, takes the session very seriously, but also has fun with it so time flies by. I'm honored to be her student and pupil, and look forward to many more acting lessons, as she imparts her wealth of knowledge of Shakespeare and acting technique."

"I was always afraid I couldn't learn Shakespeare, but Nicholas explained the intent on the word, the intent on the line. Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"

"I have learned so much with Nicholas. I feel like I'm always walking out of our lessons with my mind blown! We've been working on Shakespearean acting which I am now thoroughly enjoying. I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the lines than which I have learned in school. I would highly recommend his coachings to any actor!"
