I teach Acting through method, Meisner, Stanislavski, and I help write and create a repertoire appropriate for the actor or find monologues and scripts easier for the actor to study.

About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland." She is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and earned her BM in Music Business and Vocal Performance cum laude studying under Magi Scott, Jeff Ramsey, Jerome Kyles, and Carolyn Escoffrey, Donna McElroy, Livingston Taylor, Joan Lader, and Charlie Sorrent
o.

Ali is also known for playing piano. She received her minor in Piano Performance within a year at Shorter College under Helen Ramsaur. She has been playing since she was five years old and has accompanied many people and musical productions.

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

Weehawken, NJ
View Full Profile

I am a professional actress/ singer/ songwriter and directer. I employ my many years of experience as a performing artist, to help my students develop what is unique and compelling with in them. I believe that everyone has something of value to express. The key is finding creative ways to unleash it.

About Amy
I have been a voice, acting, and teacher of creative arts for over 25 years. My background includes ten years of classical training with Maestro Julio Berrocal, as well as vocal training through the Feldekrais approach with Marcy Lindhiemer. In acting I have studied with renowned Stanislavsky scholar Sonia Moore and Master acting teacher of the Strasberg Method, Marcia Haufrecht. I received a B.A. For comparative literature and creative writing at the State University of New York at Purchase and I am currently studying for a masters in social work at Walden University.
I believe, within all of us, Is the ability to express something distinctive and original. I work to help the student discover their individual and unique voice, weather it be through singing, acting or writing. I share with my students tools to gain the ability and con
fidence to achieve their goals. I empathize deeply with the challenges students may face when pursuing a life in the creative and performing arts, having worked professionally in those arena's for most of my adult life. I believe, it is the teachers job to respect each students individual process of learning.
My students have gone on to become recording artists, Broadway performers, movie actors, blues and cabaret artists and published writers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice
I am an empathetic teacher, sensitive to the students individual process of learning. My singing lessons usually start with breathing and relaxation exercises. Vocal exercise come next, then when the student is fully warmed up, we will begin to work on songs. It is important that the student be part of the process of picking material since the more they personally respond to the material the more apt they are to be engaged in their lessons and the more quickly they will learn. After three to six months they will understand the fundamentals of breathing and relaxation and its importance to proper vocal training. They will have begun the process of extending their range and will understand the principles of performance in song.
Acting
As an acting teacher and coach, I tailor my classes to the needs of each student. I utilize improvisatory and sensory techniques to help unleash spontaneity. I also encourage the students to use their personal experiences as a way to access a full range of emotions. I enjoy working with the student on script analysis, so as to discover the underlying motivations of the character the student is working on.
Creative and Lyric Writing
I use prompts as a way to get the student writing. Often, I will ask the student to write for stretches of time without editing themselves. It is important to unleash imagination before beginning the process of editing. Many times it is the unexpected that is the must compelling.

*** Studio Equipment ***
home- 10 minutes away from Manhattan with piano, seating for parents
-practice studio seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a piano, cd/mp3 player and an large library of songbooks to work from. The student should bring sheet music of songs they want to work on and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching how to sing rock, pop, musical theater, jazz, and blues without hurting the voice as well as method acting instruction.

Amy is a truly incredible teacher and person. All of her students love her and those I've referred have thanked me profusely for the introduction. My daughter has studied voice with Amy for a number of years and after just the first lesson, the improvement in her technique and confidence was remarkable. Amy can bring out the best in anyone's voice. She is encouraging and nurturing and provides the safe and positive relationship anyone would want to have with their teacher.

the opportunity to cross over if they would like.

As the amazed grand-daughter of David Smason, a successful vaudeville Orchestra leader, I have enjoyed many years of educational and professional experiences as an actress, teacher, and director in venues of all sizes. Besides performing leading and supporting roles in over 30 productions, including Suzie-" Wait Until Dark", Rosemary- "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", Miss Mazeppa-"Gypsy", Lalume " Kismet", I also performed and/or staged several original reviews such as SF's " The Distractions", " On Being Female", and " The Van Spronsen Variety Showcase". Directing/coaching "The Sound of Music", multiple productions of "Amahl and the Night Visitors" and "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown" leading orchestras, choirs, and workshops for churches, schools and communities has given me a strong appreciation for artistic collaboration. earning a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, all ages and levels, comic to tragic, specializing in musicals, I have successfully ...

About Abby
Due to my maternal grandfather's work as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Adrian West from NYC Broadway, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Roland Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many teaching years, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals and groups sing optimally from thei
r hearts. For all levels from beginners to professional. the necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though the process of becoming a successful artist continues during one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including 15 years working successfully as an ESL educator, my experience has allowed me to help any student achieve their personal and/or professional goals.

Alyssa is an outstanding director. When she directed "Father of the Bride" at the Oldham County Schools Arts Center, I feel that she truly brought out the best in me and my fellow actors. Alyssa is easy to work with, creative, and funny. Her directing skills are impeccable. Although I have not taken acting lessons with her on a regular basis, I was lucky enough to have her as a sub once, and she did a wonderful job, helping students to think outside the box and to feel comfortable trying new ideas. I definitely recommend Alyssa to anyone interested in theater acting.

Hello, my name is Bernadette Sayre and I am recently graduated from a very rigorous 3 year Master of Fine Arts in Acting program. I specialize in Film Acting, however, if you check out my profile, listed under my "About Me" you will see I have listed children's filmmaking camps I have worked for, along with internship at production companies.

I have extensive knowledge in resume formatting, head shot formatting, demo reel formatting, how to properly audition for both film and theatre, how to properly self-tape from home, tricks for memorization, monologue preparation, character analyzation, etc.

I personally enjoy deriving my technique with a mixture of improvisation and Uta Hagen's theories on acting. I was also trained in Meisner and if a student requests it we can certainly work on some of his exercises as well.

Everything I have learned has been through my masters program, reading and researching for years, self-educating, attending numerous industry events, ...

About Bernadette
Hello! My name is Bernadette! I recently graduated from Regent University with my Master of Fine Arts in Acting with a Concentration in Directing. I received my B.A. in Psychology from George Mason University which I have found has been a very complimentary degree with acting.

In 2012, I taught an acting/filmmaking class at Prude Ranch Summer Camp in Fort Davis, Texas. In 2013, I taught at a very prestigious filmmaking camp at Imagination Stage in Bethesda, Maryland. I taught the children everything from producing, script writing, acting, camera operating, sound mixing, editing with Final Cut Pro X software, and I was their assistant teacher for their Animation camp as well.

I have interned for three production companies; Mirandum Pictures in Front Royal, Virginia, Michael Copon Studios in Norfolk, Virginia and at Parroco Producti
on Group, Inc. in Chesapeake, Virginia. If you are not familiar with Michael Copon Studios, the CEO Michael Copon is best known for his portrayal of the blue power ranger in the early 2000's.

I have extensive amount of training in film acting. Film acting is my sweet spot, however, aside from it I am trained in improv, stand up, theatre, teleprompter work, hosting, commercials, print modeling, sketch comedy, stage combat, etc.

My teaching style is simple, I will treat each student as an individual. No one person is the same, so therefore, I will hone in on what your goals and expectations are. I will help you achieve those goals and we will find an acting method that best suits you. There are so many different ways to approach auditioning, for example. The most important thing, I feel, is to find what works best for you, expound on that and always work towards bringing your authentic self to the table. That is what will ultimately enrichen your acting career the most and your personal life as well. Acting is one of those tools that you can incorporate into just about anything. I love it and I love what I do so, thank you for checking out my page and I hope to hear from you!

What makes me unique is my 20 years experience in practical application both as an actor and a director. My personal philosophy for this business is that there is no one true way to present all material. Our craft, much like ourselves, is a living, ever-changing and adapting entity. My acting/directing tool-belt incorporates many methods, from Meisner, Adler, to viewpoints and Stanislavsky. I believe that the best work is reached when you are ready and willing to utilize all resources.

To optimize our sessions, you should arrive with your monologue off-book so that we have the full time to explore, create and tighten the reading in order to get you to a comfortable, natural place that's right for you and utilizes the skills in your growing tool-belt. We will explore your character background choices, tackle any language barriers and break down beats for maximizing both comedic and dramatic effect.

About jamil
My career as an actor, singer and director spans more than 20 years. At the young age of 14, as part of a production of Big River at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, I realized that theatre was the path for me. I later earned my B.A. in Theatre with a minor in vocal music from Lambuth University where I led casts in such shows as The Fantasticks, The Diviners, and Amadeus. I also discovered my knack and love for directing, taking on children's theatre and mounting a fantastic main stage production of Terra Nova.

 My path took me to Los Angeles, where I continued my acting career in theatre, film and TV. Some of my favorites include Freddie the American in Chess, The Fool in King Lear, Arturo Ui in Brecht's The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, and Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream performed both in L.A. and Frankfurt, Germany. As a director,
I successfully brought to life such wonderful scripts as A Piece of my Heart, In the Heart of America and the controversial Marat/Sade. 

Within a few months of arriving to New York, I was cast as the Emcee U/S in a national tour of the musical Cabaret. Soon after my return, I booked the two-person Off-Broadway hit comedy Channeling Kevin Spacey in which I played 15 different characters and ran for a solid two years!
