Before my first class, I knew nothing about opera singing. I have had 10+ classes with Vanessa now and have learned a lot in techniques. She is very patient and knowledgable. She is able to tell instantly what's right or wrong which is super helpful.

Vanessa is amazing teacher!!! The best I ever had!!!!
Vince M.
I am a professional speaker and I decided to pursue some speaker voice coaching. This was my first lesson and Vanessa was friendly and great personality. I felt comfortable with her
immediately. She provided education, demonstration, observed me apply the techniques, and offered constructive feedback. After the class, I was excited to practice what I learned. I will definitely continue to go back to Vanessa. I highly recommend her.

Ms Serena is a quality teacher with high expectations and rigid policies. My daughter took lessons for approximately six months. During this time, she learned a great deal regarding vocal technique and the physiology behind quality sound and breath control. Ms Serena also guided my daughter through the creative writing process of composing her own song.
Lana
Serena was so kind, encouraging and helpful in beginning my vocal training. She focused on the fundamentals, explaining and answering every question I had, teaching me about proper technique, vocal health, audition etiquette, and more. She was also always willing to listen to how I was feeling and was very kind and welcoming at all times In a very short amount of time, my vocal technique and quality improved, and I now am a much more confident and healthy singer. Serena is amazing!
Lynnette
My daughter and I are very happy with how Serena coached her. Her technical way of teaching has helped Jana , my daughter, understand the mechanics of singing better. We booked the $400/5sessions promo in preparation for my daughter’s competition and we are happy to say that she did very well, thanks to Serena’s coaching.
Serena is very professional, communicates clearly, and is excellent in her craft. It is unfortunate that due to other family affairs, we are unable to continue with her.

The awesome thing about working with kids on acting is that they usually come equipped with active imaginations and are already versed in the art of playing. Adult actors of all levels vary in their experience and training, but some may not have as easy access to that inner kid. And at the core of good acting is the ability to let go of inhibitions and play, which most kids do pretty naturally.

I first started working with young people as a college student when I returned home to conduct improv workshops at Scotland High School where I had graduated in North Carolina. I was also a camp counselor for 2 years at our local adventure camp. (Don't get me started on the talent shows we'd co-produce with our kids). Since then, I've conducted interactive workshops on Shakespearean Acting (including stage combat!) across the southeast while on tour with the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival's Globeworks Program. I've also lead workshops at the West End Studio Theatre in Santa Cruz ...

Super Enjoyed our first online class..even with some technical difficulties due to my antivirus software firewall, or browser or the weak wifi in my place or something...Truly enjoyed it. Jason was very kind and patient, while we tried to fix the technical aspect. Once we got started on the phone because video and voice didn't work; I really learned a lot, and gathered insight into Acting that I couldn't get from a book or other classes that I have taken. I'm truly blessed I get the opportunity to work and learn from Jason. I am super excited and can't wait till our next lesson. I will call technical support at Take Lessons to get technical help to fix the issues, and will buy a portable wifi hotspot if I have to solve the video and sound issue. Jason is patient, kind, very nice, professional, extremely knowledgeable, I can't say enough good things. Thank you very much for all your help and your time. I look forward to the journey ahead... Take care. Aloha. -Bobby

And 5-6-7-8! I've been teaching dance in various studios across NYC and New Jersey for 5 years, and for 4 years previously in Charleston, SC. My teaching philosophy is rooted in self-discovery--I'm a firm believer that technique and skill will come in tandem with self-love and confidence. I specialize in all levels across ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, contemporary improv, and conditioning & stretch. Whether you're just starting, have been dancing for years, or are rekindling your love for dance, I'm excited to get dancing with you!

In Jazz, it's all about personality! Each class is structured with a warm-up, conditioning to wake up our muscles, stretching, and then of course dance exercises. You'll learn a fun dance combo each class, and for recurring students, you get to choose the song for next class. This class is high energy & perfect for dancing the quarantine blues away.

About Veronica
