Private Acting Teacher

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

She is truly excellent! Guided me through my audition and her input was very valuable. She is also very personable and reliable.

Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!
Todd B.
My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

Specializing in the beginner, intermediate and advanced level training. I love acting, performing, directing and teaching and have been involved with the acting world since age 6! Studied theater in high school and at NTSU, have a B.A. Speech/Communications and Spolin Improv technique with Nancy Fine of Second City.
I believe basic acting skills help you in every day life to be more poised, confident and help hone listening skills. It is a true delight for me to see the "light-bulb" go off when a student fully grasps a new concept or idea.
I customize sessions based on the individual.

Evelyn is a wonderful instructor! She is insightful with many years experience under her belt and she is passionate about acting. It’s great to have her support as I go into acting for opera at the collegiate level. I enjoy working with her and I highly recommend her!
Dale
Evelyn is one of the BEST directors I have worked for as an actor. Her level of care for actors was amazing! Throughout the process she helped guide and encourage the actors to bring out the best in themselves. She has a gift for acting and as a director she can relate to actors and understand what they are going through in a production. Thank you for Evelyn for everything!!

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.
Vi T.
We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Becoming an professional actor is a progressive process. Let's journey together.

Using a variety of Stanislavski-based methods I work with actors of all levels to promote emotional freedom, clarity, and artistry. My work is based on the three major American proponents of Stanislavski's work; Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and Lee Strasberg.

I also work using methods I've learned from my time at Shakespeare & Company that connect the actor's personal narrative to classic text.

Alex is knowledgable, intuitive and just tough enough. And although open for discussion, he is usually, ok I’ll admit it, spot on!

"My daughter took 10 acting sessions with Jennie - the first one was in person and the rest were over skype which worked perfectly! Jennie started each session with warm-up activities to 1) break the ice and 2) to learn how to deal with nervousness (breathing/relaxing techniques). Each session consisted of singing and practicing a monologue. Jennie suggested a book on monologues and my daughter chose one she liked. Each session they worked on expressing the emotion that was being expressed in the dialog. They broke down the feelings being portrayed and practiced different ways to express the emotions. Jennie was SO supportive of my daughter. Her lessons are going to be VERY helpful to my daughter when she goes to try out for the spring musical next year. We are planning to sign up for more lessons prior to auditions as a refresher! I highly recommend her."

She allows for enough creative freedom to be able to give you notes afterwards that enable you to build on them because she wants you to achieve your potential. She really cares and will help you wherever she can whether its for an upcoming audition or polishing your resume. I highly recommend her teaching."
