Excellent Teacher

My daughter started taking lessons with Athena when she was 7. Within weeks she already was playing simple songs & loved practicing etc. Now 2 years later she has shown incredible improvements. Highly recommend Athena.

Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

Acting students will receive instruction customized for their individual needs and skill level, drawing on a variety of techniques, including Linklater (physical and vocal work), Stanislavski, Meisner, and Grotowski, Shurtleff, among others. Students can work privately on audition skills, including monologues and cold reading, as well as scene work, character building and basic principles of acting. The first step to great acting is a free body and voice, allowing full expression of of emotional life of the character!

Wendy has been giving voice lessons to my 12-year-old daughter for 6 months, so I asked her what kind of review she should get. The answer was quick: "Five stars!" Why? "Because she's fun, and she has helped me identify and work on the skills I need, and helped me improve where I'm okay, but could be better."

From my point of view, Wendy has done all those things. My daughter loves to sing, and Wendy is increasing her skills and her confidence. She looks forward to her weekly lessons; never a complaint. Five stars.

Use the Alexander Technique to heighten your skills. Learn how to re-act, rather than just act.

Jameson is an exceptional singer and teacher. He is kind and patient in lessons and wants to make sure you understand what he is teaching. Not only does he go over the notes and rhythms of a song, he also goes over the meaning and emotions of the piece to help you understand and perform the piece.

Jameson has been patient with me in the few lessons I've had with him so far.
He's very knowledgeable and understanding, so I felt no need to be ashamed when I make mistakes or sometimes sound funny. It helps that he's friendly and approachable.

The lessons are purposeful and insightful. I like how he allows me to ask questions and he helps me understand mechanics that I've never learned before.

I've sung in a few church choirs for many years on and off without any vocal training. I've only ever sung for just the love of singing, so I've collected some bad habits that were never addressed until now. It didn't take long for him to develop a gameplan for me and figure out how he's gonna get me right on track.

Today he helped me "find my voice". It was a Eureka moment of sorts I won't soon forget. There's still work to be done, but surely I will
continue with my lessons with him because I'd like to see where he can help me take my voice.

Definitely top-notch instruction from a pro here, so for me, it's money well-spent.

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.

Having spent a lifetime on the stage in many roles, many capacities, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to all facets of performing; be it theater, television, film. While not subscribing to one particular "method", I stress "reacting, not acting", and believability of performance. All ages and experience levels have benefited from my approach. Whether a student is an aspiring actor, or a working actor sharpening their skills or prepping for an audition, I provide a solid foundation and practical knowledge and guidance.
