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."

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

I couldn't have asked for a better instructor because I was primarily looking for patience. I have a long time fear of singing and singing in front of people, Tiffini is very patient and easy to work with.

Joe P.

Escondido, CA

My instruction in acting encompasses all levels from beginning to advanced using a strong base in Stanislavski while blending it with many other theories in order to take students to the deepest levels of characterization and realization – finding the truth in the moment and in the story. The goal of this eclectic approach is to be able to extract something useful from each theory, something that works best for the individual actor thus aiding them in creating their own essential actor’s tool box - a box which holds the keys and secrets to their soul’s inner workings and the mechanisms used to retrieve them.

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.

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

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!
