Voice acting is completely different than stage and screen acting. You must embody the character using only your voice. I can help you sound your best and you can start booking paid gigs!

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

Rourou Y.

Book Now

As a teacher, I have taught hundreds of students of different levels, in various dance styles, ranging from contemporary, theater, jazz, hip-hop, Chinese, improvisation, and choreography. I am passionate about helping students to achieve their individualized goals through her unique, comprehensive, and supportive teaching style. I am passionate about education and believes in the role art plays in how people learn, grow and connect with each other.

For me, dance class should be playful and stress-free. Getting to know my students is the first and foremost thing I do, because I believe it is the way to build connection and trust between my students and me.

I think the technique is less important than helping my students build their own confidence about their body. I use personalized approach to assist students to be aware of the sensation of their bodies and help them recognize the subtlety of the body movement.

While teaching movement, I explain each movement in a very detailed ...

Choirs are a wonderful place to grow as a singer, musician, and friend. As a choir director and coach, I enjoy finding the best repertoire and combinations of voices to enhance every choir's sound and experience in the group. I have taught children's choirs in San Diego and Los Angeles as well as been involved in co-ed and all-women's choirs over the years. As a choir director, I hope to spread the importance of community in choirs while having a fun time and expanding diversity of repertoire.

I teach some techniques you don't necessarily learn in acting school which are practical and immediately usable.
ACTING
What do you do when you get the script?
Using subtext to bring realism to your performance.
Line delivery: tricks of the trade.
AUDITION
Do you have the right monologue to fit the parts you can play?
Suggestions for a monologue(s) to fit your persona. You need more than one to fit the different genres of the play or film you are auditioning for.
How to break it down, the importance of changes.
Tactics for attacking the cold read: what to do while you're waiting in the lobby after they just handed you your "sides."
Also, refer to ACTING (above).
DIALECT
Double your chances to be cast by having a variety in your bag-o-tricks.
British Receive Pronunciation: consider the number of plays written by Brits, and then listen all the Americans doing RP in films. Other: Irish, Scots, Cockney, and Romance languages.
