Hey there! My name is Alyssa B. and I am a local Philadelphia-based actress, singer and teaching artist with training from The University of the Arts in Musical Theater and Acting. I have experience teaching and directing students ages 5 to 20 years old. While at The University of the Arts I was the primary tutor for Musical Theater studio and Acting studio classes for undergraduate students. I have also had experience directing productions featuring students all the way from kindergarden through to high school, while having also taught at multiple theatrical summer camps. As a youth director and teaching artist, I hope to help each individual student find their own unique artistic voice, not focusing on one teaching method, but instead allowing each student to inspire a unique approach suited for their own specific needs and desires. I have experience tutoring and coaching students in anything from Shakespeare to Musical Theatre to college audition prep.
As I believe every student requires a specific approach, I am happy to offer first time students the option of a free private session to start - allowing each student to see if I am the right fit for them before continuing on in their private training! I also am happy to make theatre education accessible by offering several different methods to "meet up" for a coaching - I can teach via online skype/facetime, in person at my studio in Philadelphia or by traveling to the student (depending on their distance from my home base). I will try to work with you and see what is possible!
Should you have any questions feel free to reach out via email or phone call, although email is typically a better method. All questions are welcome and encouraged! I can't wait to meet you or your child and see what cool theater we can create together!!
