About Emily M.

Emily M. is a professional actor, singer and dancer and experienced teacher available for online lessons worldwide teaching subjects ranging from voice to yoga and many other fitness and arts classes. Emily has been in the performing arts for over 15 years and teaching for the last 6 years. Extensively trained in voice, dance and acting, Emily attended a high school for the performing arts and graduated from the University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music with a BFA in Musical Theater. She has trained at various other prestigious institutions including Festival Ballet (Providence, RI), T. Schreiber Studio (NY,NY), HB Studio (NY,NY), Ballet Prestige (Providence, RI), Steps (NY. NY), and Broadway Dance Center (NY,NY) among many others. She is also an experienced yoga teacher.

Although trained classically in voice, dance and acting , Emily has developed her own methods of teaching, melding together various techniques that have worked for her. She crafts each lesson with that specific student in mind because she understands that each student is unique and learns in their own way. She strives to enhance her students confidence, creativity and ability through a fun and engaging learning environment.

As a professional dancer, fitness is obviously a huge part of Emily's life. She believes that mental and physical health are strongly connect and loves sharing her passion for and knowledge of fitness with her students. With 10+ years of yoga experience, Emily teaches a Yin/Vinyasa Hybrid class -- where she balances stillness and strength with fluidity and movement. Music plays a huge part in her yoga practice. In her fitness classes, you can expect a heavy dance influence, classes being mostly rhythm based and set to fun playlists.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Emily is learning the ability to blend together the different performing elements. Acting plays a large part in her voice and dance classes-- as storytelling is the most important thing in any performance genre.

Emily strives to be flexible with her students, and she knows that life can get busy! Lessons are organized to best fit to the student'€™s schedule when possible.

Emily is always available to her students in between lessons if they have any questions or concerns. It is important to her to build relationships with her students that make them feel comfortable to do their best work and take risks in class. Emily is a very patient and positive instructor and understands that students learn at a different pace, after all everyone is unique.

Emily wants her students to leave each class feeling accomplished, proud and yearning for more. She finds teaching to be incredibly rewarding and she truly can't wait to work with you and help you reach your goals.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

We did not have the best experience with Emily and Take Lessons. When first inquiring about acting lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present, I was told by Emily I could purchase single acting lessons. I found out this was not the case. Because of the confusion, they allowed me to purchase just 2 to start with. The first lesson was fine. The second lesson, we got a couple reminder emails with a link to join the lesson, which is great, however after being signed in 10 minutes early and then it got to be 15 mins after the lesson was supposed to start and it hasn't, I emailed Emily and I was told I wasn't supposed to click on the link in the reminder email. I was supposed to join a Google meet, which I never received an invite for. The lesson was canceled, so we wouldn't get charged per Emily, however, our credit card was charged a fee that same day. The lesson was rescheduled as it was already paid for. At the beginning of the lesson I mentioned I would like to purchase more lessons for my daughter and inquired about lesson times outside of school hours. She said she would check her availability and get back to me. The next day all I got was an email saying good luck to you, I am not able to find a time for your daughter. Not accommodating at all.

Emily was a great instructor. She is very personal, makes you feel comfortable, and has great knowledge of the subject. The class is flexible enough so that we can do different types of dance. Will definitely keep taking classes with her.

Emily has a really deep knowledge of the musical theater cannon and through her own experience and training she is really able to figure out what works best for that particular student. My voice has totally blossomed under Emily's teaching and I really look forward to every lesson.
