Capable, courteous, and very well versed in his field. Patrick's flexible schedule made it possible for us to cram for an upcoming test, on short notice.
Conveniently, he's preparing to teach a university cpurse on the same subject matter.

You will be able to walk away with help and knowledge recording voiceovers/reel, accents/dialects, how to do ADR, projection work, Linklater and Alexander technique, and more.

The voice is a crucial element in acting and is connected to our body, emotions, and attention. Unlocking the voice and breath is the key to a long and successful acting career. I believe that my training and attitude can help you find your breath and voice, and begin to unlock the doors where you know you belong.

About Jake

What drives me to wake up every day, is to supply actors with a safe space to grow and learn trusted actor tools and resources. I want to foster, the lessons I've been taught and learned, and help the actor change their path and careers. I love meeting new artists, collaborating, and getting result

Are you looking to improve your tone, delivery and/or ability to control your nerves? I can assist you in this area. As vocalists, speaking is very much a part of our job. The ability to approach an audience with confidence and to keep their attention is imperative and something that we do often in performance.

About Lauren

I am a graduate of The University of The arts with a BA in music performance. The University of The Arts has allowed me to gain a reputable amount of performance and educational work. In my training at the University was able to concentrate on many styles of performance such as classical technique

Lauren was very skillful at what she does and this conveys well in the lessons with her. I learned a lot from Lauren in my time with her but I would prefer the lessons to be a little more organized. All in all a good experience, Thank you Lauren.

Lauren is the real deal. Point blank period. I initially signed up for singing lessons, but she has helped me with piano, music theory, and other skills as well. She has a much more wholesome approach for developing as an artist than simply a linear "sing these notes" type of lesson.

Lauren is a good balance of stern and silly. She has a great sense of humor, so I feel comfortable singing & playing for her (even if my skills are limited and sound like a dying horse). However, that doesn't mean you just goof around. She takes it very seriously and pushes you as a student. I couldn't recommend Lauren more.

Five stars.

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

"I was recently in a play titled “Why Does It Hurt So Bad?” with Tamika as an Artist Development teacher. She was extremely helpful when it came to knowing how to project your voice, emoting and becoming the character that you are portraying. Tamika was very professional and she always helped wherever she could. Tamika always gave great advice and how you can improve your craft as an actor. Everyone in the play took note of what Tamika was saying and applied it in the next rehearsal, getting better and better every time. This is the reason why the play was so successful. I will definitely keep in contact with her to keep perfecting my craft and to see if there’s a way that I can take acting lessons from her. Thank you so much Tamika. You’re AWESOME and so TALENTED!"
