About Kathryn

Actors-Singers-Music Artists - Singing Performance
Move forward as an actor or artist. If you've been at it for years and need a new coach or you're looking for a coach to work with from the ground up, let’s make it happen. I work with artists at all levels. I'm not going to judge you. I'm going to collaborate with you.
And if you really want to act and don’t have access to a teacher study online and you'll begin to learn the craft of acting until you are ready to take the next step in order to get to a location where you can study in a class with a teacher in person. But at least allow
your
self to BEGIN!
If you need a place to work your chops or more confidence for everything to come together let’s make it happen. It doesn’t matter where you live. All you need is the desire and commitment. Don’t let your location stop you from attaining your dreams! You deserve to study acting or music performance and you deserve a place in my studio and I care about working with artists.
I've been in the business my whole life. I'll teach you more than how to act. I'll also teach you about the industry and how you fit in to it. So if you're an actor or a music artist and you want to work, get in here.
If you're planning your move to Los Angeles or NYC or working where you are and need to start studying and to begin in the business, I want to help.
I also work with actors who need audition help in a hurry. I coach you to prepare for auditions and shoots and work with you to be able to get to the point where you're ready to work. I'll give you technique, a system and a strategy so you can do what you love. We will work on audition prep, monologues, scenes, singing performance, we will find out who you are and how you show up in the biz. I will encourage you to bring in scene partners to work with, too.
I am generous with what I know. I learned it by working very hard. And I studied like mad. I still do. I have a resume, references. I care about the craft. And I care about you, the artist.
I studied at Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (CCM). In New York City I was under the care of opera teacher, Leona Matthews, famed acting teacher and director, Word Baker and Edward Morehouse as a student at HB Studio in NYC and Mark Monroe in San Francisco and Los Angeles. I have my own writing doc, the revered Dr. Joyce Block. I work as a recording artist and writer. And I’m lucky to work as a concert artist, too.
If you want to experience this thing we call showbiz call us. I cannot wait to meet you.
More about Kathryn
Kathryn began teaching in the early 90's in San Francisco with Mark Monroe, after co founding Mark Monroe Studios. MM Studios began originally in 1987 when Kathryn and Mr. Monroe packed their studio, by word of mouth, and when the studio totaled six hundred and fifty actors; they added a studio in Los Angeles. Kathryn has been coaching actors and musicians and developing artists ever since. She has been involved in the industry her entire life and has a passion for it. She most recently has been working in Los Angeles and San Francisco on her own show that had the good fortune of being awarded a residency at Berkeley Reps The Ground Floor.
She also works as a songwriter and singer and her latest release is with renowned Grammy award winning producer, Narada Michael Walden.
Her students follow suit, working constantly, winning awards, signing with agents, joining unions, and enjoying the perks of being active in showbusiness as gifted artists. Kathryn loves passing the torch to young artists and she s thrilled to be able to do so.

My Philosophy
I am also known as a singer/songwriter & recording artist but it’s my work passing the torch to actors and music artists that gives me the joy I have carried with me during my long career in show business; If an artist believes they have something to say creatively I’ll work with them to discover the way to do it and they will do it well. So well, in fact, that they are going to be able create and perform in whatever capacity they visualize. It is 100% because they find the way to discover what makes them thrive and to maintain a kind of emotional equilibrium that lives inside of them.
I solidify technique, the system, and we all know you gotta have a system. But actors also have to be able to support that system and that takes the ability to practice discipline and a work ethic and it takes a commitment to self care and most importantly the insistence of creating a habit of self love.
So, look, I don’t want to go all California on you, or all showbiz for that matter, but if someone is an artist, their nerve endings are probably longer than their appendages and it’s my job as their coach to look out for them...to make sure they have the ability to understand how much they deserve to be on the planet because actors are serving this planet and that is work. Art is work. And it's necessary. It’s how I do it for myself as an artist. And it’s how I practice with others. So that’s what I do. And I’m lucky I can.

Larisa K.

Hercules, CA

About Larisa

Began violin lessons at age 8.
At age 15 was accepted into the elite program at the School of Music in Odessa, Ukraine.
Continued on to one of the premier music Universities in the world: Kiev State Conservatory, where I received a Masters degree in Teaching and Performing arts.
Throughout my higher education I have held Violin Instructor positions first at the Kiev Music School and then at the Conservatory.

My Professional Career in Ukraine and USA includes performance with numerous symphony and chamber groups, such as Kiev Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera,
San Jose Symphony.
I am passionate and dedicated to my Art which is reflected in my teaching style and in the results my students consistently achieve.
My ultimate goal as an instructor is to convey to my students the beauty of making music. I define success to be the ability to see the joy that playing for yourself and others brings to you and your audience.

*** Lesson Details ***
My Method and Goals:

Proper technique is the key to producing extraordinary sound and growing as a violist. I ensure that my students gain solid understanding of these fundamentals first and foremost.
A significant part of the first few lessons will be devoted to developing proper posture and hold of the instrument. A good violinist must be relaxed to prevent muscle tension and produce those rich, spellbinding notes. Soon the instrument begins to feel like an extension of the hands, and students begin to progress much quicker, seeing (and hearing) surprising results.
I can follow the Suzuki method if requested, but much prefer principles of the Russian School. I will be happy to discuss the benefits of each with you.

*** Studio Equipment ***
on ground floor of townhouse w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student has to have his own instrument. I can provide the music sheets

*** Specialties ***
Classical music. Mostly traditional Russian method of violin teaching, also Suzuki.

A Great Violin Teacher

My daughter has been taking lessons with Larisa for three years and has made incredible progress. She began as a viola player and Larisa gave her lessons on that instrument as well. She was very helpful in making the transition to violin. Larisa works on technique as well as musicality so that the student develops into a well rounded musician. Larisa is the type of teacher who communicates clearly so that the student is able to immediately grasp the new concepts. She is a wonderful violinist and is able to demonstrate by playing beautifully as well as explaining. Larisa is extremely knowledgeable about the different periods of music and composers and shares this in her teaching. She has an easygoing personality and my daughter immediately connected with her. I would highly recommend Larisa for your student.

Micah is fantastic. I had no singing experience at all but he was willing to work with me starting at my level. The drills were fun and built on easy steps of progress.

I know that i'm no Pavarotti, but I'm gaining capability and confidence every week. Lessons with Micah are truly the high spot of my week!
