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

Carole's fifty-year career has spanned all phases of the entertainment industry. She was cast in the role of Velma in the original cast of "West Side Story" on Broadway. She was then chosen to recreate her role in the Academy Award winning film. She also starred in "Gypsy" with the legendary Ethel Merman creating the role of "Dainty June”.

Teaching is the natural culmination of her vast collective experience. She works with many Broadway artists in her “singing performance" and "acting" classes at New York's famed "Carnegie Hall" and the "Complex Theatre" in the heart of Film TV Theatre Row in Hollywood. Ms. D'Andrea has helped thousands of professional performers around the world prepare for and land jobs in the industry. She was recently selected as one of the top thirty acting coaches in Los Angeles. She is so delighted this past year to be able to now reach even more students around the globe with her new online coaching.

Carole D’Andrea is an extraordinary teacher, human, and guide. Her kindness, generosity, and knowledge are invaluable. Her dedication to each artist’s personal process is laced with warmth and boundless support. She is truly a beacon.
Susannah
Carole is a shining light in my creative life as an actress/singer and I recommend her highly. Class begins with an inspirational quote and group check-in which encourages an immediate vulnerability and tenderness in the work that ensues. She is funny and dear, and a most humble music theatre icon. She sows the seeds of depth, compassion, and discipline in the most beautifully humane way! Don't miss an opportunity to work with Carole.

I have worked as a professional actress for over 40 years and studied when many different teachers throughout the years . Carole is one of the best by far . Carole creates such a support and loving environment that is vital for an artist to grow . Carole’s insight and experience is priceless. She is musical theater legend .

After a long time of searching for an acting coach, I finally met Darius.

His coaching approach is very unique and truly changed my career and skill as an actor. He has a depth of knowledge and is very caring.

I highly recommend Darius.
Jordyn
Taking classes with Darius was tons of fun. Helped me through a few problems with a monologue I needed to learn and helped add another layer to it that I didn't even think of. I definitely recommend taking one of his classes as it'll help you reach into whatever piece you're working on and draw out something new for your character work and overall understanding of the play/film/show. if you're wondering whether you should do it or not, I say, take the class! In the long run, you'll be grateful for the help.

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

Julia has been teaching me for quite a while now and she has been the greatest teacher I have had. She has taught me so much in such a little amount of time. She makes me feel comfortable while acting, which I find is an amazing quality for a teacher. She also acknowledges how I feel on certain scenes and takes. She is definitely a great teacher.

"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"

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned."

How Do Actors Cry?  

Actors often draw their audience in through strong and seemingly authentic emotions.  Perhaps you watched a particularly emotional scene in a movie or play and wondered to yourself whether or not the emotion the actor was showing was truthful.  Perhaps they were crying and you could see the tears falling.  Are those real tears?  The answer is, probably, yes. Crying on command is tricky business and like everything else, takes preparation and practice. However, there are some tips and tri …
