My mother and I were looking for a voice teacher in New York City that we thought could take me to the next level. We did our research and have been with Alisa ever since. She knows exactly what techniques to work on with me. Alisa has definitely pushed my voice range to a level that I could not have accomplished without her. Besides being a great teacher, she is also an all around funny, loving and caring person.

From the very first day I met Alisa, she had an energy and passion that never wavered. This kind of enthusiasm was always modeled for my students and they developed a love for theater I never thought they would. I worked with Alisa for 3 years and it was the best experience for my students and me! Alisa taught my students how to be professional and confident at the same time. The end result was always a spectacular production.

Alisa’s endless experiences and successes on Broadway and beyond, coupled with her genuine enthusiasm, have allowed her to dramatically improve my skills as an actor and singer without a hint of negativity. She has taught me invaluable tools such as character development and song interpretation that have strengthened my performance and brought me to a level that I never thought was possible. To me, she represents what this field should embody: poise, passion, and excellent performance.
I believe that the true value of acting comes not just from stage direction; rather, it comes from directing your heart into your performance. Alisa Endsley has done more than make me a better performer. She has made me a better person.
In all, if you come to cherish your time with Alisa half as much as I do, the rewards—both professional and personal—would be invaluable.

“As a parent, I can’t imagine training money more well-spent after seeing my daughter shine both on and off stage after working with Alisa. The rewards were immediate. Julia picked up an agent as well as multiple roles on stage and in film work under Alisa’s guidance. Overall, she has not only made my daughter a better actor, but a more polished young lady as well. Alisa knows how to conquer show business, and does it the right way.”

For six years, I have worked with Alisa, watching her create and teach programs that introduce young people to the world of musical theatre in a professional, theatrical environment.
Alisa handles all aspects of these creative environments with the greatest professionalism, dedication and talent as she embraces all theatre-loving kids with great warmth and excitement.
Her experience as a Broadway singer and actor combined with her considerable skill, education and talent to work with young artists makes her the perfect teacher. Her ability to effectively communicate to and bring out the best in performers, and her passion to assist young people as they launch their career in the theater has further enhanced her
value in this role.

I have been working with Alisa for many years, and her classes are the highlight of my week. When I work with her, she creates a non judgmental and fun environment in which it becomes easy for her to identify the challenges I face with my voice. She has helped me progress as a vocal artist with her unique brand of passion and commitment, I have never met anyone as sincerely enthusiastic to teach as Alisa. I have seen real results, and noticeable vocal improvement in the time I have worked with her. She is a joy to learn from, and a truly excellent teacher.
