Alyssa is a wonderful teacher This was my first voice lesson ever. She was understanding, enthusiastic and very helpful in getting me started
Susan.
Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!
Craig J.
I have known Alyssa now for about a year and she is a true master of her art form. She is knowledgeable and genuine in her teaching and performing, and always seeks the best for her students. I highly recommend her as your teacher.

Penny’s sound background in Stanislavski’s teachings, coupled with years of experience on stage as an actor and behind the table as a director has helped to mold her into a passionate, dedicated, and energetic educator and performer. Her instruction focuses not just on the student’s technique, but developing the student as a whole - working with posture, confidence, interpretation and artistry. She also incorporates the use of yoga and movement as tools to free the actor in mind and body. In addition to private acting, she teaches voice and voice/piano combo lessons. Penny has been a private instructor for over 18 years and works with students of all ages and levels. Formerly the Coordinator of Theater at Endicott College, she has ten years of experience teaching and directing at the collegiate level. A native of the Chicagoland area, Penny is a graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University (BM, Vocal Performance) and the Boston Conservatory (MM Opera Performance).

I started working with Penny when I was 11 years old and she has done wonders to my voice. When I first started singing, I had no training and had a very little range. Thanks to Penny, I have grown not only as a singer, but I am a stronger performer as well. She helped me with everything: from building my repertoire, to audition prep, and through the college application process. I am now studying at Dean College and getting my BA in Musical Theatre, and I still see Penny for lessons when I am home. I owe all of my success to Penny’s training!!

Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.
In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.
This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.
We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.
Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

Andrew is a fantastic teacher! He puts in hard work and creates a fun environment to learn
Allison
We have had a great experience with Andrew teaching our daughter piano. He works great with kids and has a wide range of teachable skills. He organizes fun events for his students that showcase their hard work. I am really pleased with our decision to enroll our daughter in his program, she has a lot of fun and has learned a lot in a short amount of time.
Brent
I can't choose a subject because Andrew teaches so many different things in his piano lessons that I would be doing him a disservice if I chose just one.

As a former piano lessons taker myself, I must admit that I had some lofty expectations for my daughter's piano lessons. On the first day of lessons for her, I knew that we were in great hands. Andrew has exceeded my expectations with every turn. And a fun and lighthearted way, and through games, activities, and fingers on the piano , Andrew helps the young learner learn the most important thing about music: it's fun! Theory is fun, composition is fun, ear training is fun, performance is fun. As a musician myself, I'd almost forgot. Andrew has helped me to remember, and is instilling these values in my daughter.

Thank you Andrew for being so awesome.

I teach Character Building. Maximum comedy potential is reached when an improviser plays a sustainable comedic character. My lessons are rooted in easy to learn, ready to wear technique that I have taught for years.

I am a comedian that has been doing improv/sketch comedy for over 15+ years. I have taught mu technique at iO, The Second City and in various cities are the US including San Francisco, Portland, Austin, Miami, Charleston, Atlanta, and St. Louis.

I believe that I am the only teacher teaching technique rather than methodology to improvisers.

"Zach has the best critical eye I know. As a trained actor himself, he understands what it's supposed to be and guides you there without ever preventing you from being authentically yourself. He also brings his director's eye to self-tapes, elevating the scene by shaping the frame. The way we set up the camera for a battle scene allowed me to fully commit as an actor without worrying about the technical aspects of taping."
