Grand Rapids, MI

As a dancer for 15 years, I had the opportunity to teach, choreograph and perform in over 100 pieces and performances. Lately I have been doing much more choreography and teaching in the musical theater realm. Being well versed in tap is beneficial in many musical theater productions both classic and modern.

I have learned a lot and have had a lot of fun studying with Elizabeth. She is kind, knowledgable and helpful. I really wanted to work on reading music because it had been a long time since I've sung. She was very patient with me! She always makes our lessons fun but challenges me to always do my best. After working with her for a few months I felt more confident and tried out for a solo with my choir, which I got! I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who wants to work on reading music and learning how to sing better. She's the best.

I have been taking lessons with Elizabeth for the last 6 months and I couldn't be happier. Elizabeth is a wonderful teacher. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about singing and teaching. Elizabeth designs classes around my strengths and weakness in order to help me to become the best singer I can be. Although she critiques the things I do incorrectly, she also praises me for what I do correctly. When she critiques my singing, she pairs it with singing exercises and warm ups to correct what I'm doing wrong. My singing has improved so much and I have become so confident in my singing that members of my church choir have complimented me. Also, I am buying several lessons with Elizabeth for my mom as a Christmas present. I have learned so much from Elizabeth and I look forward to continuing my classes. Thank you, Elizabeth for being an amazing teacher!

Ferlyn is professional and accomplished yet she condescends to me as a novice iin such a patient, warm and kind way. I never realized how much i could learn. I had the idea that i would suffer under the tutelage of a harsh dance taskmaster that you learn about in movies and books. NOT SO; i look forward to my class which is such a pleasure!

I've taken tap dancing for over 20 years, and performed in many tap musicals! I can show you basic steps well into the more advanced rhythm tapping, as well as poise and confidence as a tapper.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!

I have enjoyed my lessons with Ashley because:

1. Pace of instruction is perfect for my level (beginner) and available practice time (limited).
2. Ashley isn't simply teaching me how to play a song; rather she is improving my technique in this critical period where bad habits can still be changed.
3. Always on time (granted instruction is at her location but none the less this is appreciated).

I am a 21 year old who has some experience in a variety of types of dance and I found Candace while I was looking for someone to help me brush up on all of my dancing skills! She is absolutely wonderful! I have been working with her once a week for the past two months and I could not be happier! She is very knowledgeable in many different styles of dance and I have improved dramatically within a short period of time. She is extremely easy to get along with and I imagine she would be fantastic with a student of any age! I enjoy our lessons and look forward to them each week! I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dance instructor whether they have never had a dance class in their life or whether they, like me, have had years of dance experience.
