Such an amazing teacher. Andrew has a total command on his field. I feel myself lucky that my skills are nourished by such and amazing acting teacher. He sees your possible ability about which even you are not aware and make it come out as a best in you. His humbleness and giving is unique and his approach is all rare. His techniques made me learn about so many things. His different exercises made me a better learner. He shines and grooms every aspect of your talent. I definitely am is a better actor now, there are many good words I can write about him but he is a genuine acting teacher.

The best teacher ever! I appreciate Andrew taking the time to listen and teaching me things that I am not aware of. I have learned so much about acting and how to continue to improve my skills. Thank you!"

Andrewis a fantastic teacher that unlocks your true potential! Only serious actors should go to Joe, since he will not coddle you like most other acting coaches.

In just 1 class you WILL be acting in at least 3 scenes, AT LEAST. He will unlock your full potential and sometimes that means digging deep into yourself, making you learn or confront some possibly scary things about yourself.

Despite this hard working down-and-dirty nature, he is an extremely warm, kind and fun person.

His critiques are genius and he always seems to know exactly what to say to make you understand and to help you.

I cannot recommend Joe more highly, he is amazing!

Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

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!

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.

Before beginning the lesson, I ask the student what he or she wants. What does he or she specifically want to learn or gain from dance lessons? My lessons are completely tailored around my student's wants and needs. Dance is supposed to be a fun, relaxing form of expression, so I like to help my students express themselves through movement in a way that is comfortable and fun for them.

About Jennifer

After her lesson, she is so excited about the range of characters and the skills she's asked to display. Molly is very encouraging and always provides positive reinforcement. My daughter has been in several plays and has had issues with projecting and her confidence. I look forward to her next audition, as I believe Molly's instruction is providing the tools needed to be her best"
