The most important aspect of vocal training that I will emphasize is breath control and support. Connecting to the body when singing will ensure vocal protection and prevent any unwanted vocal strain. Once we have worked on technique through various scales and breathing exercises, I will teach them how to apply these elements of singing to their repertoire. When we work on repertoire, I try to alternate between technical practice and artistic expression. I want to make sure the student is having fun, communicating their art, and discovering their own unique artistic identity, which I believe to be the most important aspect of being a singer! I will provide my students with new challenges each week and help them to gain new tools to practice healthily and efficiently.

About Christina

My name is Christina and I am a professional singer. Alongside singing, I have 7 years of teaching experience in schools, and private studio lessons. I specialize in opera but also sing and teach a wide variety of genres as well! I completed my Bachelor of Arts in music at the University of Califor

Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!
jb
It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.
Steven
I initially started with Darren in Orlando in 1990. Being a talent manager I wanted to understand acting better to better help my clients needs. After a few lessons I had learned so much that I required my entire client stable of about 25 people to take his class. He had to add an additional night to handle my people. In a couple weeks I saw incredible growth. In a few months I had the best acting stable in Orlando. My people were working.

Darren is one of the most talented actors and teachers I’ve ever come across. But he’s not the coach for someone who takes it lightly. He’ll work your butt off.
