Rakeen
Some people might fare better with this instructor. More chatting than instructing. Usually telling stories trying to sell himself and talk about how great he is. Delusional ideas about your relationship. Accusatory. Takes things personally. Burns bridges. Claims to be a vocal therapist but doesn't do any vocal therapy. Can provide bad advice and medical information.
Jim
This was my first piano lesson in 50 years. It was everything I hoped it would be... intellectual, fun, relaxed... and it filled me with hope that I could finally make something out of a musical instrument I left in the dust so many years ago. Jimi is wonderful to talk with and work with. This was beyond my expectations.

I’m 80 years old and play sax in a Senior band. I signed up for several lessons with Jimi Z. to improve my tone and breathing. I think Jimi did a great job with me, and I recommend Jimi for sax lessons. Dan Ginsberg

"There aren’t enough good words to say about acting coach, Dennis Johnson, of Rollicking Productions. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 5 years and his commitment, knowledge and ability to guide his students to top performance levels in the acting world is unbelievable. With Dennis’ help I was able to win for the State of NH two years in a row for the nationwide Poetry Out Loud competition, land several lead roles in community theater, gain my own teaching experience in his acting workshops, etc., but more importantly I gained a whole new level of confidence that I didn’t have before. Working with Dennis was one of the best decisions I've made and the skills that I learned from him still compliment everything I do today."

"Molly was the perfect choice for my daughter, who was preparing to audition for an academy of arts high school. Molly was so full of enthusiasm and love for her craft, and her energy is contagious. She was able to put my daughter at ease, assist her in memorization of her monologue, prepare her for improvisation and even have her some rudimentary vocal training. Her ability to encourage my daughters dramatic choices while gently guiding her and putting her completely at ease was magnificent. More importantly, she made everything FUN! Her work with my daughter was successful, and my daughter was able to audition with confidence and poise. Thanks to Molly, my daughter was accepted into the Academy of Arts and is on her way to an exciting high school career. Thanks, Molly!!!!!"

"Alexandra was my primary coach when I was applying to MFA Acting programs last year. She is the best! She was instrumental in my success at every step of the process: helping me to pick material, coaching me on how to highlight my unique skill set, preparing me for what to expect in the room, and even in-home coaching while I filmed a taped audition. She is insightful and clear in her instruction and the breadth of her theatrical training allows her to tailor each session to the specific needs of each client. If she hadn't already helped me get accepted to one of my top schools (where I'll be starting this fall!) I'd absolutely hire her again. I can't recommend her enough!"
