I tailor each lesson to the actor. I create a safe space to play and learn. I empower and uplift each student so they approach the work with excitement instead of fear. Together, we create realistic goals for the actor's career. We may work on auditions, self tapes, scenes, anything and everything the actor is struggling with.

I help each student analyze the script so they can make strong choices that are unique to their acting talents.

Stephen is an amazing teacher. He has been super patient, thorough, and clear as I have just recently picked up a guitar for the first time. He does a great job and covering music theory as well as chords, strumming, scales, and more. His musical background is very well rounded and he uses great teaching techniques to get all parts of the brain involved. Highly recommend!

Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

I have worked with Alex as a performer, stage manager, and co-teacher and have found him to be exceptionally intuitive in all three roles. Alex has an amazing ability to nurture talent in others through genuine interest in their goals as well as the knowledge and patience to help reach them.

You will not find a more supportive, enthusiastic, or caring educator than Alex.
Rowan
Alex is an incredible teacher, supporter and friend. He always puts 10000000% into making sure that his students have a great experience. He is passionate about theatre and the world around him and will show these passions through teaching. I always looked forward to classes I took with him and anyone who has him as a teacher is incredibly fortunate.
Andrew
I worked first in a supervisory role, and later alongside Alex at a summer academy for gifted middle school age students. In his initial role in the classroom setting (mostly in a theatrical class, but also in a music-oriented class) Alex continually demonstrated both a mastery of the content area and an affinity for instruction, as well as a strong talent for building meaningful relationships with his students, which further enhanced the learning environment.
Later, in his administrative role alongside me, he carried those talents into a broader sphere, teaching other staff how to best perform in both the educational setting and the social/emotional setting alongside students. At all times, he has demonstrated a profound talent in the theatrical arts, as well as a gift for working with students both individually and in the group setting.

"Breakthrough-making creative experience

I took a physical storytelling workshop with Monica in a small group setting (6 students) and didn't know what to expect. I'm an experienced performer, but not an actor, and had no theater training background. The class blew my mind -- the exercises Monica led us through dissolved my defenses and self-consciousness, and made me think about my body as an instrument of expression in a way I never had before. She created a safe space for us all to be vulnerable, take risks, and tell the truth, and I felt I could really trust her as a teacher and guide. I feel like I made some real discoveries and connections in her workshop that continue to reverberate in my approach to communicating and being present in a performance setting."
