About Amy

I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical voice training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldenkrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting, I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and have recently completed my Master's degree in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help students discover their unique voice, whether it be through singing, acting, or writing. I share with my students an array of tools to gain the ability

and confidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those areas for most of my adult life. I believe it is the teacher's job to respect each student's individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, Blues and cabaret artists, and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the student's individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal technique exercises come next. When the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that students be a part of the process of picking material since the more personally they respond to the material the more apt they are to become engaged in their lessons. After three to six months beginning students will have gained an understanding of the fundamentals of breathing, relaxation, and basic performance skills. With more advanced students the focus will be on range extension and the on-going development of vocal style through song interpretation and performance related exercises.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the most compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, cabaret, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

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.

Private Improv Acting Teacher

I have completed the Players Workshop of Second City six part course twice and performed in their graduation show twice as well. I write comedy for my own purposes and study comedy almost constantly. However improv. for the actor can be an entirely different process and is based mainly on finding your character via various exercises. Open mid required!

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, with a few years behind me; I'm ready to pass on what I have learned. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am well trained, professionally, both as an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those claims. I invite you to please peruse my background on the site and feel free to ask any questions you desire.

Regarding Texas Hold 'em (poker), I have been playing and teaching the game, and working for online casinos for over thirty years. My approach is simple, requires extreme discipline, but I can show you how to win mo

re than you lose. And this is true of all subjects I teach whether literal or figurative.

My undergraduate Bachelors is in Acting & Directing I was taught by the same professors who launched the students that formed the now famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago (Illinois State University); I also have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience both as a GA and in the private sector. I have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio et.al). I hope that gives you a thumbnail concurrently I hope I didn't bore you to death.

Peace and Kindest Regards,
Randy

Private Improv Acting Teacher

Hi! I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I am a graduate of The Upright Citizens Brigade and have been teaching improv for 5 years. Improv is an incredible tool for freeing us to build and find exciting choices in all our work. Whether you're looking to strengthen your commercial, television, film, theater or public speaking techniques, you'll soon love leaping "without a net".

About Hunter

From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am invested in

About Michael

Hi friends,

It is nice to meet you! I am an 'Emmy Nominated' actor and twenty five year veteran actor on the longest running show in broadcast history 'The Guiding Light.' I was fortunate to study acting from the legendary acting teacher Stella Adler and Larry Moss. I'm also a student and performer from the highly acclaimed Improv group 'The Groundlings'.

I've been fortunate to be a working actor most of my life. My credits include the recurring role of Dr. Stewart Farmingham on the popular ABC series Doogie Howser, M.D.and Paul in It's a Small World, part of an anthology series produced by David Lynch for HBO and Lead featured roles in Law and Order. I have booked numerous lead roles in feature films and off-Broadway and national television commercials. My American Express commercial won the ESPY award for best commercial of

the year.

I’m proud to announce distribution of my award winning comedy soap spoof, 'Steamboat' that I wrote and produced. It is now available on Roku and NetTalk.

My first play as a playwright, 'Breathing Under Dirt' was awarded ''Best Play' at the Manhattan Repertory One Act Festival in March of 2016. ‘Breathing Under Dirt' is now getting Broadway consideration with the highly acclaimed director Larry Moss at the helm. I have just completed my second play 'Red Rain' which explores the themes of war and peace that collide within a family during the Vietnam War.' Red Rain' is currently being work shopped in NYC for a production launch in early 2020.

Enough about me!

I am on this site as my true passion is building successful acting careers.

Just so you know, I am a nuts and bolt guy.

There is a clear road map to increase your chances of success that I will give you.

The fact is most casting directors have made a DECISION about you before you even open your mouth.

I will empower your' actor’s ego' so that you will own any room you walk in.

Preparation leads to Destination!

I prepare you to win.

I am not just a acting teacher but a mentor to help build your career.

Please compare my credentials against all others. Most importantly-my students work!!
