Carolyn is an excellent teacher. She's patient, has a great amount of resources and knowledge for adult beginners and she knows how to make lessons fun, engaging and challenging. I'm a huge fan!

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

Acting is a natural form of exploration we see in children around the world. Imagination, pretending, imitation, mimicry, and character-play extending into the real world can create safety for expression and experimentation.

My playful approach to acting is based on 30 years of experience, a degree from Seattle’s premier BFA program, and five years’ studying playful human interaction with their environment. Applying it to scripts and performance is my particular delight.

Together we work to embody characters, enjoy making messes, and elevate human expression to its most entertaining form. We’ll borrow from improvisation and a variety of artistic disciplines. We’ll create something memorable, profound, and delightful together.

All ages and experience levels.

About Isaac

CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU Learning involves playfulness, curiosity, and personal connection. I've studied how people learn and how people play, along with 25 years of professional and performance experience, and I focus it entirely on you. We start with what you love, discover what you already know, then

Isaac helped to distinguish the difference between creating art and copying which tapped a different side of drawing for me. Had a good session on training on seeing the tones of shades.

As an adult taking vocal lessons for the first time, I was not sure what to expect from an instructor, from myself, or from the type of experience it would be overall.

Shelley was so easy to work with, and quickly put my nerves at ease by working to understand my goals, instilling confidence, and by helping me focus on my style of singing (not just the style of singers i like), and by using music that I was interested in.

Highly Recommend!
Chandra
My daughter absolutely loves her acting lessons with Shelley. We thought we would just start with a few acting classes, but now it has been a few months and the classes are so enjoyable and helpful, and we our watching our daughter grow and shine in the art. Well worth the time and investment and we are so thankful we picked such a fabulous instructor.

Nick is an amazing voice teacher and a highly skilled singer himself. His lessons are very thorough, but also fun! While Nick gives you corrections, he also emphasizes the things that you are also doing well on. You will leave his lessons feeling confident and energized!
Emma
I have had the privilege of working alongside Nick, learning from him, and watching him grow as a performer and as a teacher. I have seen him instruct and collaborate with peers and adults, as well as kids ranging from 8 to 18. The way in which he is able to articulate and pinpoint areas where improvement is available, while simultaneously keeping things fun and positive, is a true accomplishment. He cares so deeply about the work, as well as people. If you are looking for someone for your kids or for yourself, Nick comes with a plethora of knowledge and a humble, jovial demeanor. It will be a judgement free zone, so you can come as you are, wherever you are with your singing journey. Be prepared to work hard, connect to your body, and have a great time. I personally still look to him for audition advice, style tips, and reminders of technique. I could not recommend Nick enough.

Boleslavsky and Strasburg techniques combined with British Classical School. -as the result of my own training. We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.
