Private Acting Teacher

I have extensive experience as a stage actor and teach actors of all ages. I use a natural, holistic approach and am proud to say that my students are almost always the best actors in their performances!

About Nancy

I believe in the extraordinary power of music to communicate, to inspire and, often, to heal. That belief underlies all my work. My goal is to help you find the power to express through singing your unique self. It doesn't matter whether your voice is professional quality or whether it's even "

My daughter and I started taking lessons with Nancy during the pandemic as an activity that we could enjoy together. We are both adults (60’s and 30’s) who were completely new to singing. We have really enjoyed our virtual lessons and are amazed by our progress over the past 6 months. Nancy is incredibly kind and helped us to develop our confidence with singing. We never believed we would have ever participated in a virtual recital before working with Nancy. We recommend Nancy highly for her teaching skills, positive attitude and dedication to helping us develop our voices.

Nancy is both a fantastic person and teacher! After being with a voice teacher that led me to harm my voice Nancy has helped me rehabilitate and find strength in my voice. She's always happy to work on anything I bring to her and has a vast array of knowledge. I've been able to increase my upper and lower range with consistency and know that it'll only get better from here. If you're considering, just go with her!

Private Acting Teacher

Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, and Meisner Acting Technique for Theatre/Camera is taught in private and group classes. All students are exposed to each technique and Rachel sees which technique each student responds to the most. Once the student and Rachel are able to identify the technique, Rachel continues to use the terminology of that technique for the remainder of the time the student is in lessons. Students eventually are able to play roles truthfully and realistically, even if the roles are opposite of the student's own personality.

About Rachel

**Due to the pandemic, all lessons will now be held on a virtual/online platform until further notice.** Rachel is fully background checked by three different companies and is also fingerprinted. Rachel's private studio is where you not only learn healthy technique, but how to become a self-su

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!

Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …
