I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

She is truly excellent! Guided me through my audition and her input was very valuable. She is also very personable and reliable.
David
Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!
Todd B.
My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

My strong background in Vocal Pedagogy includes a working knowledge of the anatomy of the vocal mechanism and the acoustical physics of sound production. These fundamentals can be applied for significant and often immediate improvement in sound quality both in sing and in spoken word. Targeted diagnosis of the issues and clear remedies are the name of the game. These lessons are for those that are looking to gain confidence and stamina for presentations at work, or for those looking to overcome speech difficulties.

About Lance

Ever been told that you’re "a little pitchy," or that you “just need to give it more support?” Tips like these often leave people frustrated because they don’t actually give anyone a plan for improvement. In my lessons we will focus on real, specific issues, and make sure you have a great plan for

Neel D.
He is very nice, patient to my 8 years son. The lesson are going very good.
Jasmine
Lance is my first voice teacher. I decided to take lessons in preparation for reading poetry and short stories. Lance encouraged me to keep singing because he believes that I have a great voice. After practicing his exercises, reading his simplified approach to music theory and singing a few songs, I heard a marked difference in my voice and feel compelled to continue this journey.

Above all, I've benefited from Lance's pleasant, encouraging approach and am very excited about where this new journey can take me.
ALOYSIUS
I see improvement already in my vocal abilities with my first lesson. I enjoyed the lesson much. Now, I have got to do my homework to be my best.

Great Instruction Technique

I've been working with Matt for a few months now and he has really helped me step up my understanding of best practices, chords / scales, music theory and improvisation techniques. I have been extremely impressed with the wealth of knowledge that he possesses. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to enhance your piano playing abilities.
Colleen W.
Excellent Singing Coach

Matt is a wonderful singing coach. He has a great understanding of music theory. He made me feel comforable right from the beginning, and I had not had a lesson in over 15 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Karen E.
Best teacher ever!

I've been taking lessons from Matt for a couple of years now and have performed in 2 recitals. The recitals Matt offers are an excellent motivator for reaching goals and growing my skill level. I'm very pleased with my progress and so appreciate Matt's attention to detail and his encouragement.

Experienced piano and voice teacher of 8 years. All lessons are individualized to the students needs and goals, no two students are alike, therefore no two lessons are structured exactly the same way. I specialize in beginner/intermediate piano; classical, broadway, jazz and pop voice; as well as music theory, sight reading, singing and playing, chords and lead sheets, songwriting, you name it!

About Nicole

Music Lessons I believe it is important for students to learn proper piano and vocal techniques such as reading music, warming up, fingering skills, and technique secrets. Learning a musical instrument is a skill that can be taken with you throughout your life! Health Coaching You only have on

"Improv Acting with Jessie

In January, I decided to take a last minute opportunity to apply for a job at Disney World over the summer. After doing some research regarding the audition process, I found out that there was a brief improv portion involved in the audition. About two and a half to three weeks before the audition, I found Jessie and booked four lessons.
What I received from my lessons was more than I could have ever hoped for. Jessie is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgable, gives incredibly feedback and advice, and in addition to what an awesome teacher she is, she also is INCREDIBLY flexible and willing to work with your schedule."
