On-Camera Acting Masterclass

We are so excited about the launch of our Masterclass Series! Each month we will be hosting a masterclass where our students can challenge and refine their skills- and maybe even try something new :) This is a studio-wide series at Rosenbalm Academy, so students will be learning from different teachers throughout the semester on various topics.

Our first masterclass, "On-Camera Acting," will be held on Saturday, October 7th and taught by our very own Tara Dillard Palmer. Tara worked as the head Casting Assistant for Oklahoma's largest casting agency, Freihofer Casting. There she managed the agency's commercial and movie projects, taught acting classes to young actors, and gained skills and experience in front of, as well as behind the camera. (Rudderless, 2014) 

If you have ever thought about acting for TV of film, you will love this class! Reservation Required.

*All Masterclasses are FREE with a House Membership! See our "Events" page to register!

2017 Auditions & Performances

Hello Lesson House! 

It's great to have you back! We are two weeks into the Fall 2017 session and we have loved setting new goals with you and diving into some great music. At The Lesson House we believe it's important for our students to be active participants in the local music community, so we have put together a list of local audition and performance opportunities. We strongly recommend taking advantage of these opportunities as they come up in order to gain experience singing and performing in front of an audience. (With experience comes confidence!) Oklahoma City has a thriving and growing music culture with everything from the Theater to the Opry! Don't be afraid to try something new this semester! After all, being a well rounded musician means exploring music in all its forms. Talk to your instructor about preparing for your auditions this week.
