As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

As an adult first time learner I was very apprehensive about taking lessons online. I am so glad that I did.

Ellysa is not just a piano teacher. She is a musician. I have learned so many things from her including piano, guitar, songwriting, vocals and the methods behind how music is made. She is knowledgeable about all kinds of technology and music making.

She is extremely intelligent. She’s also very patient. She’s always in a good mood.

I would highly recommend you take lessons from ellysa

Because the lessons taught are custom-tailored to the interests and skill level of each student, you are guaranteed to have a fun lesson.

I'm Dan, a teacher who firmly believes that, "You should learn what you want to learn." Relying on experience gained as both a Junior and Adult member of Magic Castle, I bring only the best tried-and-tested material that you, and your audiences, will love. If you wish to have a specific focus in the art of magic:
-Peformance (styles varying from close-up to strolling magic)
-Props (cards, coins, etc.) and Management
-Theory (stages and forms of rhetoric)
-Misdirection

You've come to the right place.

NOTE: Because I have a firm belief in my lessons planned, and aim for transparency with each student, It should be noted that:

"In addition to the lesson, some lessons may be accompanied by a set of notes ."

These notes will help to facilitate good practice, and cover any minor/specific issues in regards to technique and/or ...

"My 16 year old daughter has been taking online lessons with Kelsey for 2 months now and it is all she talks about!!! She adores and respects Kelsey as a person, a teacher and a career coach. Her confidence level is increasing and this in itself makes me thrilled to have made this inverstment in her. Therapy sessions are great, however, when you are able to find a coach and instructor that helps your child find their inner confidence and heart song through something they love, well, there is nothing better than that! Thank you, Kelsey! As we all know, it is not just knowing how to do it or even doing it - execution style is everything and you have sincerely won my daughter’s heart!"
