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

Kimi (Viola is preferred)
The first lesson went great and though there was a lot to learn, she explained everything and was clear about her expectations.
Hanna
Ilana is my first instructor, and I can already tell I made the right choice. First lesson, I told her what I felt my biggest weaknesses are, and she immediately began helping me. She was very considerate and emphasized her concern about pushing me too far, but I told her to trust me in return to tell her if I had hit a limit, and I felt very heard in that moment. The sort of open and safe communication she has provided makes me feel at ease during our lessons and thus makes it easier for me to push past any limits I've so far come across. Honestly after each lesson, whenever anything happens in my newly found VA world, the first thing I think is: "I can't wait to tell Ilana!"
Alex and Alahna
Ilana was very informative, friendly, and helpful. It's hard to find someone that truly has these qualities, but Ilana has them and is great. She was very informative on breath control which is a major thing to know. Looking forward to more lessons with Ilana and to continue improving.

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
