Private Improv Acting Teacher

I am a voice and acting teacher specializing in musical theater and pop rock and other commercial forms of singing. I have training in all different acting techniques and I focus on audition and competition prep. I help performers fuse their acting and singing but can also focus on one aspect if the student so chooses. I work with many students on college auditions and thespian competitions as well. I teach all ages up to adults since I am also an adjunct faculty and have experience in teaching at the university level.

My daughter loved Melanie!
Sarah
Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

Nikisha was kind enough to accommodate me and my friend in one class. We had a 2 hour session, and it was filled with useful information, especially considering the fact that both of us had absolutely no idea about using makeup.
Andrea Thomas T.
The Instructor did a Fantastic Job with teaching my daughter, a beginner learn the basics of applying makeup. More importantly , she educated her on the purpose of using particular products/makeup. I highly recommend Nikisha!

Experienced teacher of 5 years. Graduated with a BFA in Acting at Emerson College. Substitutes Acting in all divisions at the Calhoun School and teaches On-Camera Acting workshops at various programs in NYC. Specializes in Theater Technique and TV and Commercial Acting.

Private Coaching For Actors:
Strong auditioning is vital in introducing an actor’s best self and work. It will ultimately separate them from amateur to professional. Actors will learn certain aspects of the audition process, such as how to enter a room, where to look, how to begin and finish their monologue, etc. They will study rich material and learn how to perform with freedom and ease. During this process, actors will dive deep into their characters and take their skills to the next level.

I was really looking forward to writing a review on my instructor, because she really has been my favorite. I don’t typically enjoy taking lessons, but Lauren has made them fun. She’s personable, kind and insightful. Her passion for acting comes through and is engaging. I have struggled with ADHD since I was a kid, so it takes a lot for me to remain engaged. Lauren was sensitive to this information, she has been so patient with me and truly goes the extra mile to make sure I get the most out of every session. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sharpen their talent. Not only is she an excellent teacher, she’s also fun to get to spend time with. I look forward to continue learning from her.
