From the very beginning Stephanie was great! At first, I was very concerned with learning online. Stephanie was patient, considerate, and has a host of information! It was very clear what I needed to work on, and what I could do to accomplish my goal! I was able to get into my college of choice despite starting my journey not long ago!

Stephanie does a great job of preparing you for various auditions and what the world of voice acting is like.

Private Acting Teacher

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

My daughter had her first lesson with Ellysa, and she said the hour seemed to go by in 15 minutes! She loved Ellysa's enthusiasm, and all the material that she covered in the very first lesson! She is really looking forward to working with her!

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.
Nadia N.
My daughter is really enjoying her voice lessons. Kathleen is a talented, caring teacher and knows how to make the process effective and fun for my daughter. My daughter loves being able to choose the songs she wants to learn, and this collaborative process keeps her quite interested and inspired.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

"I've had 4 lessons with Kelsey so far and feel like I've already learned SO MUCH. I have never had a lesson in my life before I started with her, which could be intimidating but she makes you feel very comfortable.
Kelsey is awesome and really good at explaining techniques and also making sure you understand them. She's patient and encouraging. I know I still have so much left to learn and I'm really looking forward to it! She's very knowledgeable and you can tell she has a true passion for acting."

"Glenn is a fantastic instructor. I was a beginner to acting, but I've really wanted to learn more about the craft for a long time. Glenn broke down the fundamentals of reading, character development, and script analysis to help make a more believable performance. Now we're getting into blocking and developing the physical aspects of a character. I'm learning a great deal and Glenn's patience and encouragement make him the ideal instructor to learn and grow. Highly recommend!"

Becoming an Actor with No Experience: Is it Possible?

Dreaming of making it big on screen or on stage, but worried you don't have the right amount of experience? Read on as teacher Matthew H. shares his advice...    While becoming an actor may seem extremely difficult in and of itself, without any experience it may even feel nearly impossible.

Professional actors certainly know this, but it is advantageous for those that are active in community theater or school theater, too! Theater in recent years has exploded.

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
