For me as an actor, the benefit of a great coach or director has always been that they've helped me reach places in my work I couldn't have achieved on my own. As a coach myself, I'm most thrilled by those small (or monumental!) breakthroughs that my students and I discover together during the coaching process. The cool thing is that I've found the progress my students make in their craft will often inspire me to new heights in my own. (A bonus to already enriching work)!

If you want to develop new material for upcoming auditions, hone and refresh (or completely change) your monologues, or simply work on the craft of acting, I can help. I work to gear your coaching sessions to the goals you need to achieve, offering an experience created around what you need to work on and want to learn.

With a BFA in Acting and Directing, an MFA in Classical Acting, and over 20 years of professional acting experience in the theatre and on-camera, I can offer tools for your tool belt ...

About Jason

I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting. Performing with professional repertory companies like ACT Theatre, Book-It R

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes, both from theatre and film, to explore a variety of acting styles. And if it's Musical Theater you enjoy, we will unpack the elements in that genre, and prep you for auditions. Always, classes are predicated on fun!

I have had the privaledge of being around the most iconic talents ever in show biz because of my father Harvey Korman.So having heard Aubrey Sing it harkens me back fo my favorite singers Joanne Gleason Bernadette Peters and Eydie Gormes,Karen Carpenters.The best compliment I can give Aubrey is that she is a songstress.Thats a artists who can sing and tell a story with inflection in all the right places while she expresses her humanity through song.Like her idol Barbara Streisand she is just one exuisite artists that lives and breaths and embodies every song she sings.You would be hard pressed to study with anyone as polished and dedicated as Aubrey.I don't have a daughter but if I did I hope she ends up like Aubrey then I know what it is to have created a masterpiece.She is a second generation artists her father is also a very sublimely gifted artists Glenn Williams here in Vegas.

I have been taking lessons from Aubrey since last year and she has been a tremendous teacher! She has an uplifting presence and passionate spirit as well as a wealth of professional experience. Aubrey has a great way of letting me develop my character on my own, while also critiquing and pushing me out of my comfort zone. Become a student of Aubrey Williams and take your passion to the next level!
Glenn W.
My name is Glenn W., and I am an Acting Instructor, Vocal Teacher, and Educator of the Performing Arts at Takelessons.com, since 2005. I have received many awards and accolades during my tenure, (please feel free to peruse my Profile), and, to date, have accumulated over 75 student reviews, ALL 5-Star rated, and none of my reviews are ever solicited. I make mention of my successes as a preface to this review/recommendation because I believe that the young lady who has now made herself available for hire, Aubrey Williams, is on equal par with my abilities. I mentored Ms. Williams for many years here in Las Vegas, observing as she matured as a singer and actress, procuring many prime roles in productions around the Vegas Valley. Always hungry to learn and absorb, she ventured to Broadway and was accepted at the prestigious Marymount-Manhattan College in New York City. (Over a thousand applicants auditioned, less than 50 were chosen). After studying and further honing her craft with the Best of the Best in NYC, she secured her Degree in Musical Theater and returned to Las Vegas to contemplate her next professional move. In the interim, I hired her to teach at my studio, and observed her as she enriched the lives and skills of her students to such a degree as to astonish even ME, an old sage educator... It was her choice then to relocate to Los Angeles in 2019, where she was immediately accepted in the industry, and became gainfully employed as both a performer AND an educator. What is Las Vegas' loss, is now Los Angeles' gain. For any prospective actor OR singer, any age, wishing to begin a new journey in your life, or if you are already working professionally in the industry and desire to sharpen your skills, Ms. Williams would be my OVERWHELMING choice to guide and mentor you. She is passionate about her craft, and her passion is INFECTIOUS. She is currently a working actress and performer, so her skills are contemporary and relevant. She has a knack for providing what it is you require as an individual entity, to enhance your unique talents and presentation. And always, ALWAYS, her sessions are predicated upon having FUN. She is an amazing singer, a brilliant actress, and an accomplished dancer. In our business we refer to such gifted individuals as "Triple Threats"; and due to the fact that she has the extraordinary gift to TEACH these skills in a manner that is massively informative, enthusiastically creative, currently applicable, and passionately enjoyable, in my book makes Aubrey Williams a "Quadruple Threat"... If you are serious about this endeavor to which you are about to embark (and my guess is YOU ARE, or you would not be reading this right now...), look no further than Aubrey Williams to join you in your journey on a Magical Road to unleashing your abilities as an actor and/or a singer. Trust ME. It will the wisest, most satisfying and fulfilling investment you will ever make....

Elena couched me for an audition and I got a role in a short film! It's my first filming and I am very excited about it! Going to ask her to help me with working on my role too

I want to express my great gratitude to our teacher Elena Vladimirovna.She was engaged with my daughter, 7 years old, during the year with vocals and puppet theater.
The vocal lessons were very interesting. The most part was given to exercises for breathing.Everything in a playful form, funny voice exercises, for young children -
it's very important.My daughter started to feel confident in her voice, began to sing relaxed, learned to hear music.
At the theatrical class, the daughter learned how to independently make dolls from various materials, to manage them, also she got some acting skills
Elena Vladimirovna is attentive, kind and understanding teacher, who wants to teach her pupils a lot.

"Ms. Rebecca has been a phenomenal teacher! I am so grateful for everything she has taught me. She has a well rounded teaching style that pulls inspiration from both renowned teachers of the past (Stanislavsky, Adler, Meisner, etc.) and themes found in our current events (politics, pop culture, etc.) She has trained me in anything and everything from the basics of stage acting, improv, film, script writing, and even how to method act safely. I have been awarded multiple Superior marks while competing under her teaching and am now working in my community theatres thank to her preparation. In her classes, I not only grew as an artist, but as a person as well. I honestly couldn’t recommend her more!"
