Mr. Ray J is a great teacher with patience. My 13yrs old boy is an international student who doesn’t speak English very well and
only had chance to have 6 hours class during our trip to US. But my boy likes Mr. Ray’s class very much, we hope to come back to DC and learn from Ray again.

Raycurt was very flexible in his planning, charming in person and very good (and patient!) with my six-year-old would-be drummer.

Robert E.

Washington, DC


Bgcheck Background Checked

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

December 7, 2019
I've been with Orla for over 2 years now, and I have to say she is the best voice teacher I've ever had. When I started with her, I had zero confidence in singing and performing and was very frustrated with how my voice wasn't improving. Because how I have viewed myself singing wise, I doubted my abilities in other areas non-music wise. Now two years later my voice has vastly improved in terms of vocal strength, quality, and endurance. I'm also singing songs that I never thought I would ever be able to sing. Orla patiently and kindly helped me through my agonizing frustrations with my voice and helped me unlearn vocal habits that curtailed my voice from growing. I can say now with her as my teacher I have grown a lot of confidence not only in my voice but also myself as a person. I highly highly highly recommend Orla. She caters to every student's vocal needs and wellbeing.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

I've been teaching Juggling for 10 years. I have juggled 9 balls, 6 clubs and 7 rings. I have spent hundreds of hours practicing and have a vast stock of tricks. I can teach anyone how to 3 balls juggle within 15 minutes. After that, I can teach any tricks within a month or so of practice, depending on the amount of practice one is willing to do outside of meetings. If the student leaves the path of training up to me, then the first big trick will be Mill's Mess. The progression from there will be to learn site swap notation and and 4 balls. After that, I can will start diversifying the lessons with learning club and ring juggling. After a few months, the student will be able to pass 6, 7, and 8 clubs with another individual, juggling 5 balls, 5 rings, and 4 clubs as well as several tricks for each. I can't wait to start teaching tossing objects around with you!
