My approach is to work from the text and connection to character, and then simplify if need be. The ingredients are all the same. I love to work with students on taking away any mystery and or fear.

Becca has helped me develop my mix and belt. She is very good at spotting what is needed for each different voice and has excellent techniques to help you achieve your goals. I've never been as content with a vocal coach.

Wonderful teacher! Fun, caring, and so helpful!

Becca L. is an amazing teacher! I have such a fear of singing in front of people, and she helped me face that fear and get on the road to conquering it. She totally understood where I was coming from and worked with my specific skill level and ability. I always felt comfortable with her and had fun! She knew how to challenge me and push me to meet my goals, and I am so happy that I found her!

Miss Fawn's natural, bright, positive, honest and energetic personality creates an ideal learning environment that's comfortable for any student. Whether you're a seasoned professional, or just starting off, Miss Fawn's expertise and natural ability to explain with ease the complexity of singing and inventing tailor made exercises for each individual makes her an ideal mentor and coach. My overall experience thus far with her as my vocal coach has been nothing but a positive and exciting experience. I highly recommend Miss Fawn to anyone who is looking for an excellent vocal coach, piano teacher or songwriting coach. She is excellent in all things music and worth the investment!

Fawn has innovative vocal techniques I have never seen or done before! Often she will create an exercise to my specific needs if I am not getting my placement correct, or understanding something. Because of this, I have had 100% success rate in my vocal improvement. For sure Fawn is the BEST vocal instructor I have ever worked with!

I believe the development and training of an artist is a special, sacred, and important act.

If you would like to find more truth, more humor, and more joy in your work as an actor or performing artist, then I would be privileged to help you along that journey!

As a teacher I have taught around the country at universities as a guest artist and faculty member, as well as with performing arts centers from coast to coast. As a practicing artist, I am continually researching new and updated methods and find this passion translates into my lessons with my students.

I believe in positive reinforcement and building upon a student's current skill set, rather than tearing an actor to pieces, in order to bring about the most effective results, all the while finding JOY in the work!

I have performed as an actor, singer, and musician Off-Broadway in New York, on many National tours, and at regional theatres all across the United States. I find this varied experience allows me to

One of the best teachers I have ever had! Chad creates an environment that makes you feel really comfortable with exploring yourself as an actor. Not to mention that fact that he is so kind and genuine. I know I will be forever grateful that our paths crossed!
Claudia
I have worked with probably 4 dozen acting instructors, coaches, directors in my life, and Chad is the BEST OF THE BEST.
Through several years of working with him, I can vouch that with him you always know what you get: 100% quality, all of the time. He is fully present, meets you on eye level, is kind and understanding, and encourages/motivates you to go beyond what you thought was possible.
Whether it is audition prep, Shakespeare scene work, or general acting skills, there is nobody I would trust more than Chad to help me be the best actor I can possibly be.
Most importantly, with Chad I have always felt completely safe to explore characters, inner movements, and feelings in the process.
The only bad thing I can say about Chad is that he will absolutely ruin you for the next coach or director that comes along, since no one can come even close to his quality.
Katie
Chad is incredible at making you feel very comfortable while also challenging you to go beyond what you believe you can do. In every environment that I have worked with him, he has been kind, generous and inspiring. I would recommend him to anyone (young, old, beginner, advanced) in a heart beat. It has changed my life and my career to have learned from him.

We discussed many tips (some of them very easy to implement but useful), and in future lessons will focus further on improvements.

I'm very glad for this, because I'd imagine there are a hundred ways to use your voice improperly, so having someone with Bill's experience hear your voice and offer recommendations is immensely valuable."

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
