actor & singer
Hey y'all! Welcome!
I'm Anissa (she/her/hers), and I'm an actor, singer and teacher currently based in Boston, MA. I am a recent graduate of NYU Steinhardt where I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance concentrating on Musical Theatre, and am now currently pursuing my Master of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theater Vocal Pedagogy at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. Originally from a small city in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, I respond very well to sunshine and towering scoops of ice cream.
I am passionate about storytelling through song as a means to reach those who never thought they were seen: connecting people to each other and to stories that light their spirit on fire.
I am an avid reader of romance novels, a wannabe poet, and over the course of the pandemic, my ukulele, Geraldine, has become an extension of myself.
I am currently getting ready to officially launch my voice studio! If you or a loved one is interested in lessons or coachings, stay tuned to see a full list of lesson and coaching options I will offer, and how we can work to create art together! If you have any questions, you can reach out here!
Some of my credentials include:
Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from NYU Steinhardt
Currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre Vocal Pedagogy at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee
Extensive performance experience in NYC at venues such as Feinstein's/54 Below and The Green Room 42
Recently adjudicated for the NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) Northeastern Region auditions in the Musical Theatre division
Current teaching fellow with the Boston City Singers Training Chorus (Grades 3-6)
