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

So far I've had 2 lessons with Shirley and absolutely loved them. Due to family medical emergencies I had to take a 3 year hiatus from film and theater. Shirley has been very knowledgeable and energetic, and all around an incredible teacher. I am so excited to purchase more lessons.

I was looking for an instructor who had a balance of fun and professionalism. Being new to yoga, it was a bit intimidating at first but Victoria really gave off a welcoming/energetic vibe from the get-go. She takes the time to answer questions and demonstrate in detail. Great pace, very informative, and overall a great session!

We'll work on material of your choosing or material provided by me. We'll find your "type" (very important in the business!) and then begin working on acing those kinds of roles. I'll also teach you the business side and how to "increase your value" as an actor.

I've been acting since I was a child, and in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm an award-winning actor and director with a true passion for storytelling. I've been in films on Amazon Prime (Something, House of Manson) on Television on the Lifetime Network (My Crazy Ex), and in many Theatre shows(Proof, Down the Road, Savage Love).

I have a BA in Acting from The Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University, am a graduate of the two-year Meisner program at DBA studio, and have studied Audition Technique, Stanislavski, Scene Study, Improv, Perfecting Self-Tapes, and in a Master Class for years. As a filmmaker who cast, wrote, and directed the short 'There's No Word for Us', I also have experience on the other side ...

I love working with Jane for so many reasons, not only is she, herself an incredible actress but her education and knowledge of the craft sets her apart from so many other coaches. She is attentive, supportive, and we always have fun in our sessions. Whether you’re preparing for an audition, diving deep into a role, or just want to sharpen your acting skills, I definitely recommend working Jane! She’s made me a better actress and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Monica
I love Jane! What a fabulous coach. I felt supported through the process of working on my audition and she offers spot on insight to the scene. I want more auditions just for the excuse to work with her more, I can't wait for our next session together. Couldn't recommend her more!
