Private Film Acting Teacher

I've spent almost my entire life onstage. In fact, I appeared onstage before I was even born, as my mother performed in a play when she was pregnant with me. I was bitten by the acting bug at the ripe age of 3, and have been performing ever since.

When I was 18, I studied acting for both film and stage at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, Ca. I later received a Bachelors degree in theatre, and have earned my Master's in Education. I've taught multiple subjects to a variety of ages, specializing in middle school and high school students, but teaching acting has always been my favorite.

My experience with theatre doesn't just come from being onstage or teaching. I also have extensive experience with directing and play-writing. I've also taught both of those subjects as well! For what I do, I love to teach others to do.

As a former Montessori teacher, I am adept at crafting lessons particular to each students' needs. I meet you at your level, and move ...

About Sarah

I first began acting 31 years ago, and began teaching in 2008. By the time I graduated high school, I'd already performed in well over 30 plays, as well as performing in an award winning show choir and several ballets. I started working on becoming a triple threat (an actor who also sings and dance

I took Ms. Sarah’s class in middle school and we always had fun and learned a lot. She gave us great tips for memorizing lines and getting into character for monologues, as well as teaching us improvisation through fun games and exercises. She is a very kind, patient, and enthusiastic person who loves acting and cares deeply about all of her students. She is willing to work with anyone who is struggling, as long as they are willing to put in the work as well, because she truly wants everyone to succeed. If she can teach middle schoolers, she can teach anyone!

I'm a professional award winning actress with over 25 years of training (yep, since I was a kid!), and I'm here to pass along that training to you. We will strengthen your voice with vocal training, use acting exercises to break out of your shell, and eliminate all fears that have held you back from being the best you on camera!

Denise is a terrific teacher - after only three classes...very relaxed (!) and personable, too! We have done breathing exercises and articulation, which is very helpful. She is very attentive to breathing patterns and relaxation evidence... Actually, my goal is to do reading out loud well, so this course of work is very suited to me, and I think it's her design!

Private Film Acting Teacher

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film (Comedy, Drama, and Improv,) I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

I specialize in developing well-rounded, confident actors! I'd love to be that person for you! :)

Alyssa is the best. I had a little less than a month to pick two contrasting monologues for an audition. Alyssa sent me a monologue that’s was absolutely amazing. Alyssa is patient, knowledgeable, and a ton of fun. Completely down to earth. (Judgment free zone). I would refer Alyssa to any and everybody. Amazing experience.

I have taken numerous studio classes on the particular style of acting required for film and television versus stage work.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w
