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!

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

We will work on material you have, or I'll send you a scene(s) weekly!
We can cover Comedy, Drama, Improv, Commercials, and even the business side of things like resumes, headshots, website profiles, and representation.

Whether you're an EXPERIENCED actor looking for a refresh, or BRAND NEW; and whether you're interested in just FUN or real CAREER moves, I've got knowledge from real experience to share.

Donnabella is a great teacher to have. I started off shy and unsure of what I was doing but I have been slowly gaining confidence because of her positive personality. She educated me a lot from the start and gives good advices to improve on. She's chill and focused on helping me grow. I am able to understand acting more now through her experiences. She knows her stuff!

Donnabella is a great instructor and teacher! She gives practical advice that you can use immediately for an audition. She works with you to refine your skills and work toward your goals. She is very encouraging and I always feel like I have accomplished something at the end of my lesson. She feels like an old friend!

"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."

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
