Alan is the most amazing teacher and coach. First, he is the utmost professional who knows his stuff, has an impressive résumé of theatrical performances, and uses his vast range of experience to coach us, evaluate our level of talent, and knows how to develop it to the next level. Second, Alan really listens, and knows how to work within our comfort levels and learning styles, while pushing us to challenge our self-imposed limits. Third, Alan is a lot of fun to be with. He makes each session a real joy and he is such a pleasure to work with. I take weekly lessons from him and plan to continue for the foreseeable future. The best part is that he is great at coaching us in preparing for both auditions and stage.

Alan has been great to work with! I first met him in an acting class he was teaching at a regional theater, and I leapt at the chance to take small-group classes out of his studio. I've acted for years, almost entirely musicals. I've loved the opportunity to work monologues and scenes. And songs! I'd not sung much in over 10 years so added voice lessons to my performance curriculum . Taking voice lessons from Alan has brought my vocal mojo back and introduced me to some valuable techniques I'd not know before. I've gained a lot of confidence in both disciplines, auditioning for some professional theater. And I am enjoying our work tremendously! You can't go wrong with Alan. Seriously.

Since starting voice lessons with Alan, my voice has improved by leaps and bounds. He has helped me find my voice and improve in my tone, pitch, and releasing tension. Thanks to his guidance I feel more than prepared for my upcoming audition. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their voice.

I have had numerous theatrical and voice coaches throughout my years of performing in New York City and around the world, and Alan’s enthusiasm and professionalism are second to none! He always makes you feel empowered to take theatrical risks in a safe and supportive environment, and his passion for guiding his students through their artistic journeys shines through in every lesson. Teaching is not just a profession for Alan, but a calling that I am thankful he shares with others. If you are looking for a voice or acting coach that goes above and beyond, who truly cares about you, and takes the time to ensure your individualized artistic goals are met, I can’t recommend Alan Gillespie highly enough! I realize choosing someone to guide you through this journey may seem daunting, but I can assure you, if you choose Alan to be that guiding force, you will be glad you did!
