Excellent piano teacher for our 6 year old son. Jenny is patient and great overall with kids. I appreciate the incorporation of both theory and practice into the lessons Seven months in, we have seen significant progress and best of all, our son is showing initiative to play on his own.

With my background with The Method as a Lifetime Member of The Actor's Studio and Meisner training at The New York Neighborhood Playhouse, I combine both techniques to help the actor bring his or her unique voice to the character. The focus is on actively listening to the other actor and living truthfully under the given imaginary circumstances.

Nice to meet you! My name is Ben!

I earned my Master's Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson College and I've been directing and teaching acting both professionally and in academic settings for 4 years. I excel in meeting my students where they are, no matter the skill level, and working with them to find acting techniques and methods that work for them as individuals and raise their skill level and confidence on stage. My lessons are always practical, and you will always be up and moving; trying out different techniques and exercises as you hone your craft. I can work with you on audition techniques, improvisation, character development, physical movement, stage presence, and much more! Shoot me a message if you're ready to take your acting skills as a performer to the next level!

About Benjamin

I have been a professional Theatre Educator and Director for 4 years. I'm originally from New Hampshire, and I now teach the performing arts at Cheshire Academy in Cheshire, CT. I have been acting and directing for 8 years, and I earned my Master's Degree in Theatre Education from Emerson Colleg

I'm so lucky to have worked with Ben over the course of several years. His direction has helped to totally transform me from someone who likes to act into an actor. Ben knows how to bring the best out of his students and does so with warmth and optimism. He understands the anatomy of a scene and is totally able to maximize your potential. With his enthusiasm and theatrical prowess, it will be hard to not become passionate about acting.

Ben directed the musical Into the Woods, and I played the Narrator/Mysterious Man. At first I was a bit unexcited about the part, but Ben's direction shaped it into my favorite role I've played yet. I believe it was in this show I began to immerse myself in the parts I played on stage, and I mostly credit that to him. I saw some of the best performances out of my cast mates as well.

All in all, Ben knows what he's doing and I'd recommend him to anyone excited about acting. You'll be surprised on how much you'll improve. He's the best!

I am thrilled whenever I get the chance to work with Ben. He always manages to help me not only to do well in shows, but to improve as an actor in general. He has a wide range of knowledge in the theater, so I am able to learn about many aspects of acting and theatre in general. As a director, Ben not only has a great vision, but can also explain to the actors what that vision is, and how they can best achieve it. He is always willing to answer questions and help me in any way that he can. He makes the people around him feel comfortable and safe, so they don't feel judged when experimenting on the stage. He inspires me every time we work together, and offers endless encouragement. Without great teachers like Ben, I never would have had the tools, or confidence, to follow my passion of theatre.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

"Ms. Rebecca has been a phenomenal teacher! I am so grateful for everything she has taught me. She has a well rounded teaching style that pulls inspiration from both renowned teachers of the past (Stanislavsky, Adler, Meisner, etc.) and themes found in our current events (politics, pop culture, etc.) She has trained me in anything and everything from the basics of stage acting, improv, film, script writing, and even how to method act safely. I have been awarded multiple Superior marks while competing under her teaching and am now working in my community theatres thank to her preparation. In her classes, I not only grew as an artist, but as a person as well. I honestly couldn’t recommend her more!"
