Tiffini L.

Escondido, CA

I've been teaching acting for more than 20 years and my students (and I) have gone on to work in theater, film, TV, commercials, modeling, voice overs, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll you'll learn acting basics and start creating and acting as different characters. I have a large library of acting materials as well as acting literature. Acting techniques may include: The Meisner technique, method acting, classical language interpretation, improv, and acting for the stage, and more! I love working with students of all experience levels to learn how to "professionally pretend."

About Tiffini

As a performer I have worked as a professional singer, actor, musician, and dancer. I have always had a passion for teaching, directing, and composing. While my love for performing has lessened over the years, I have found my true calling: teaching, directing, and helping others to find their passion for music and the performing arts.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a special emphasis in music, theatre, dance, and psychology. I am
a graduate candidate working on completing my thesis as my final requirement for a Masters of Arts degree in Music at San Diego State University.

Bryan S.

San Diego, CA

Always wanted to act? I focus on helping my students build their characters, give realistic performance in a nurturing and collaborative environment. Come learn scenes, monologues and full roles to help you get the experience and skills needed to perform on stage, in film, television or commercials.

I am trained in the Chubbuck Technique, Viewpoints, and Method Acting. I work with my students to better their understanding of the art of acting, and the power they have as a person and performer.

About Bryan

I currently work as an Actors Equity Singer/Actor around San Diego and am a resident Music Director for SeaWorld San Diego. As an active actor and music director in San Diego I have worked with companies including Legoland, Sea World, San Diego Opera, Lyric at Birch, TAFFEE, San Diego International Fringe Festival, California Youth Conservatory, Martinis Above Fourth and have been a featured actor in two local indie films.

I have been immersed in music since the age of 5. Singing along to the radio and cassette tapes that my mom listened to in the car. I started training as a singer during
my freshman year in high school and have performed in numerous musicals, concerts, and operas since.

I feel that performance is an integral part of piano and vocal education and will make sure that my students are given ample opportunity to perform, whether it be at an Open Mic Night, or I arrange a recital or musical production to nurture each of my student's performance abilities.

First and foremost we need to have fun. Music is fun and so should the lessons be. When it comes to practice I recommend that students do spend time outside of the lessons practicing to ensure that they see results. If you choose to practice only while in the lesson you will get better but it will be at a slower pace.

Bryan has a huge amount of knowledge that he successfully delivers to his students. He does this, not only with vocal training but also with, a personal experience, of what it's like in the real world as a performer. I greatly appreciate everything he has done for me, and can't wait to continue learning.

Sharon is an excellent instructor that can effectively take someone with absolutely zero formal knowledge of music or singing and make a things understandable. I never thought I would be able to read sheet music and now I actually understand what i'm looking at. It's a much broader learning experience than I imagined which is a very good thing. Sharon teaches you the little parts that eventually come together to become a big part of your vocal ability. I'm glad I was able to find someone with this level of in-depth knowledge of music and vocals, it's making for a great learning experience.

Tyler S.

Temecula, CA

I have been a performing artist since the age of 7. Over the years, I have worked under dozens of production companies for film and stage. As world-renowned author, Malcolm Gladwell, states in his book: "Outliers," it takes 10,000 hours of experience to master any field. After hitting that mark around Christmas 2012, I began to write a curriculum and had my first student a few weeks later. To give a piece of my general class structure, it's a balance of:

Craft Foundation,
Personal Study,
Performance Development,
Business Analysis,
Art Exercise,
and Method Discovery

I pull from a wide array of past learning experiences, (from the academy, to the set/stage, to my personal library), to produce the best exercise technique for each individual student's uniquely-structured learning path in the art of Acting.

We will study personal development, (how to prepare your slate for each new story), practice character and script analysis, (breaking down each new ...

Tyler's coach was a top student of Master Stella Adler, who was the only American Acting Master to train directly under Constantin Stanislavsky. Stanislavsky was the creator of The Method [Acting] and is KING of modern acting. Craft knowledge base does not get more grounded and serious than where Tyler's coming from. I am very happy to have found him. I just to his area from LA and we have been working together ever since. Fantastic teacher!!

Oceanside, CA

HI! I worked as a stage actor in the Bay Area, and a voice actor in the LA Area. Let's see if I can help you achieve those dramatic breakthroughs you are looking for!

About Ke

HI. My name is Ké and I come from an extremely eclectic learning background that will probably benefit you in many different ways since I have a lot of training and experience in a variety of subjects!

I currently work as an illustrator and can help you with various artistic challenges you might have. I know that digital artwork is taught in schools and some people are just having problems understanding some of the complex computer programs out there. Believe me, I know! I've been in that same boat, too, and I'm here to help you understand and achieve those goals.

I also worked as a sta
ge actor for some time. If you're an acting student I can probably help you get those break throughs you might need to really shine!

Lets see if I can help you out. I've been privately teaching since the late 1990's. I bet we can make something positive happen with your learning goals!

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History
If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action.
