Private Acting Teacher

As the amazed grand-daughter of David Smason, a successful vaudeville Orchestra leader, I have enjoyed many years of educational and professional experiences as an actress, teacher, and director in venues of all sizes. Besides performing leading and supporting roles in over 30 productions, including Suzie-" Wait Until Dark", Rosemary- "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying", Miss Mazeppa-"Gypsy", Lalume " Kismet", I also performed and/or staged several original reviews such as SF's " The Distractions", " On Being Female", and " The Van Spronsen Variety Showcase". Directing/coaching "The Sound of Music", multiple productions of "Amahl and the Night Visitors" and "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown" leading orchestras, choirs, and workshops for churches, schools and communities has given me a strong appreciation for artistic collaboration. earning a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, all ages and levels, comic to tragic, specializing in musicals, I have successfully ...

Private Acting Teacher

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

About Rebecca

Greetings! I am super excited to be building a private and small group lesson platform at our home studio and to meet your personal acting needs! I recently stepped down from 2 years of full time drama and art at Lumos Arts Academy- a private school I played a role in pioneering- to focus on bui

Rebecca has been the most helpful coach I have ever worked with! Some of what she has guided me in was tricky to do online but she always finds a way to make activities work. It is a fun class, and I can tell my skills are growing a lot from working with her.

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction.

It was a rocky start figuring the time difference, but once we connected, Rebecca was very nice, engaging and informative.

I coach actors with the intention of my actors getting to work. And they do. I’ll practice with you to discover the way only you create. I will give you the technique to discover your uniqueness and uncanny veracity for your craft and how to maintain emotional equilibrium and to have the ability to practice discipline and a work ethic. It’s also my job, as your coach, to look out for you. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues, scenes, and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to understand how we go about doing this thing called acting. I can work virtually. One thing you must know about me, I am nice. I won't crush your dreams. I will, however, make sure you attain them. I can come to you or you can meet me where I teach. I am in SF and Los Angeles. I successfully work virtually with actors, too. ...
