I've been teaching Acting for 8 years professionally and my students have gone on to be lead roles in feature films, supporting roles in feature films, and cast in stage plays. I am a very hands on teacher. I like to get into the character with the actor. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to dissect and embody a character and as time goes on you'll be able to perform two one-minute monologues for a TV/Film agent. If you already have an agent you will be coached for auditions. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Mr. Tinker was incredible. My son loved his ability to break things down in such away that it took the pressure out the equation and it felt like he was talking to a genuine friend. Mr. Tinker is extremely knowledgeable and very gifted in what he does. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for not only a teacher but a friend and mentor for this industry.

Total joke, bad communication! He forgot about our first lesson and then "went out of town" for a month the day before our second. I was so excited to work with him but he does not value his students time. Would not recommend

Didn't show up for the first lesson and took a day to get back to me. Then when I rescheduled he cancelled the next 3 lessons. I saved money for the lessons and was very excited to work with him.

This is for choirs and group vocal lessons. My teaching curriculum emphasizes on proper breathing and vocal placement to ensure vocal improvement within a few weeks of lessons. All of these terms may sound scary, but I believe that singing should be a joyful experience and one that will be a positive change in your life and those around you. I teach all genres of music and specialize in audition preparation. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a blast.

About Bebé

I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, and recording artist. I graduated from Broward College with an Associates Degree in Music Technology and dual -majoring in Vocal Performance. My primary instruments are Voice and Piano, but I also play guitar and trumpet. All of my students can ex

Bebe is a fun person and Talented Teacher, Bebe knows how to takes the stress from the student and gives them the tools they need to succeed. I love going to Bebe's location and having my daughter get that one on one with her. My daughter was scared to have lesson because she was worried about being judged and Bebe helps them get over that. My daughter thought she was an Alto because everyone would tell her that. But as soon as she started going to Bebe she told her she was not she has more range then that and she is a Mezzo-Soprano. If you want a teacher who is friendly and supporting you need Bebe.. Thank you Bebe for everything you do...

Bebe was great... very patient and positively:)

Bebé is great, hands down, I have so much fun in every lesson and actually feel like I am growing as as singer. She takes the time to make sure that I understand each exercise and feel comfortable singing.

"Delicate adjustments that empowered me and didn’t freak me out, both gently technical and also getting to the core of the scene at hand. Again, without demoralizing me or freaking me out. Easy to do. Trust me.

So yes! He was great! ALSO the logistical stuff that you don’t want to think about (sound/lights) were magically adjusted to perfection.

Just sayin’. He’s great."

"I have worked with Randy directly for over 10 years professionally and there aren't enough good things I can say about him. First I must address our ease of communication. To speak to Randy for 5 minutes is to feel like you've known him your entire life. He instantly puts you at ease by giving off the vibe of your favorite relative. He truly has interest and concern for his students and wants only the best for them.
Speaking to his abilities, he has been a knowledgable member of the creative and musical communities for his entire life. His talents are wide reaching and numerous. He also teaches with worldly experience. Randy gives room for the student to figure things out for themselves while still providing the desired support needed for progress and growth.
Randy is a mentor of mine. After spending only a short amount of time learning from him, I knew that I was not only gaining superior knowledge and training but a lifelong friend.
I was lucky enough to grow up right down the street from his home, but we've also worked in studio and online.
Anyway you slice it:
You hit the jackpot by hiring this guy."

"David has really helped my auditions. I have booked two jobs since coaching with him. He takes me back to the basics, forces me to let go of my ego, and doesn't allow me to use any of my actor "tricks." Consequently my auditions are resonating in a new and effective way. As of right now, he is absolutely essential when I have an appointment. I emphatically recommend him for coaching."
