I am a lifelong actor and passionate teacher-- and I would love to take your work to the next level!

As a teaching artist, I have worked with students age 5-88 on audition preparation, role development, and physical and vocal technique. I am a certified Yoga teacher, and I love to draw on principles of mindfulness in performance preparation.

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to silly vocal exercises, we will develop a system that works for you. Best of all: we'll have a blast doing it.

My daughter loved the session. Thank you!
Chad S.
A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

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. I will require my students to learn a monologue a week excluding other assignments I give because building your repertoire is crucial in this career. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

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!
