Private Acting 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!!

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.

I have a passion for theatre & hopefully you do too! I will help my students become strong in improv, monologue & scene work. A packet will be given each week on things to work on & improve along with an assignment.

Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.
