Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.

I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Acting and Shakespeare for Kids and Teens

As a classically trained actor who spent her undergrad years at NYU studying at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, Stephanie’s particular strength as a teacher lies in her ability to both give her students the tools to meet the demands of classical texts, while also helping them connect their inner truth to the emotional life of the character. Therefore, her work with young actors is based on three principle areas-

• Character- discovering who they are, their specific circumstances, and the students’ own personal connection to the role
• Voice and Text work- giving students the tools to understand and unlock the text, and speak it with confidence and freedom
• Fostering commitment, connection, generosity and specificity, the four basic tenants of the Shakespeare and Company educational curriculum (and all-around great tools for life!)

Coaching Sessions:
• For kids and teens ages 8-18
• High school, college, and professional ...

About Stephanie

Stephanie holds a BFA in drama from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and her MFA in classical acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting at the George Washington University, where she studied with Michael Kahn, Gary Logan (author of The Eloquent Shakespeare) and Elle

Shelley is an amazing teacher! She is always so positive and supportive, and the exercises and songs she has provided have really helped me develop as a singer and musician. As someone who picked up singing after playing a wind instrument for years, I really appreciate how she's able to explain the purpose of each exercise and what aspect of my singing it is working to improve.
Allie B.
Shelley has been the most supportive and encouraging instructor I've ever had. I am always comfortable enough to mess up and try again, and she has given me so many tips that have proven useful for my voice. We've been doing weekly online lessons, and I can't recommend her enough!

"My daughter had a wonderful experience working with Liza. At 10 years old, with no prior acting experience, Liza helped her prepare for a monologue for a school audition. She was patient and fun and exposed her to a variety of great monologue options. Liza has a really sweet way of making kids feel special and proud and I would highly recommend her as an acting/singing coach!"

"I don't know about you (yes you, the one reading this), but I've been secretly wanting to act my whole life and am a full of life personality with hidden insecurities. Even though I have never really acted professionally, I have been theatrical and playing all sorts of characters, speaking in accents and dancing to everything in front of the mirror, in comfortable social gatherings and have even put on shows for my pets and husband! Last time I acted "professionally" was in a high school play. And even then, I mostly helped make the props!

I tell you this, because, with that kind of a background, nervous and yet SO excited to JUST TRY, I chose Christian as my teacher- my professor of Acting!

I am 3 classes in and Christian is very supportive, non-judgemental and extremely easy to learn with. I am impressed with his skills, his ability to immediately decipher something I'm trying to explain, and then how easy he makes it for me to put his constructive feedback into practice. The practice is not easy... because that stuff always takes hard work, but he explains it all so easily so I can start practicing and exploring the acting world. He is honest about the acting world, the people in it and the various steps it takes to get to wherever you are trying to get! So be honest with yourself and let this be an authentic and fun experience! Plus, it's so nice to talk to someone that actually gets what it's like to be dreaming!

Thanks Christian!"

"I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach."
