We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past few months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, and a role on an upcoming Netflix drama series. This is in addition to working acto

Private Acting Teacher

As a professor of voice at NYU for ten years and the owner of a private studio in NYC for over fifteen years, the students I’ve trained have gone on to Broadway and major musical theater productions throughout the US, to graduate programs in opera at top conservatories, and to successful careers as independent artists in the pop and indie music world. As a vocal technician and a vocal coach I understand that each student and each voice is unique, and I work to uncover your true sound through a solid technical foundation that will free your voice and expressive capabilities. As a composer, songwriter and actor I can incorporate music theory, lyric writing, acting for song as well as monologues or scene work, audition preparation, career coaching and branding into any private lesson setting, depending on the student’s needs and goals.

Anna was my voice teacher for 3 years at NYU Steinhardt for music theater/vocal performance. I feel so lucky to have had her as a teacher. When I started, I had never taken any formal training and felt like I had a lot to learn. Anna gave me tools that I still use to this day for my specific voice. She helped develop a language through our lessons that made the concepts easier to comprehend. Anna was not only extremely connected to the technical aspect of singing, but also the artistic side. She always placed an emphasis on telling a story through music, and that was my favorite thing about being a student of hers. As a performer, she was always pushing me to know what I was singing about and why I was singing. I cannot say enough amazing things about her as a teacher and as a human being! Thank you Anna!
Alia
Anna is an incredibly talented and knowledgeable teacher. She helped me to reach all of my singing goals in the time that I worked with her, and the skills and vocal awareness she imparted to me have been incredibly useful in my professional life. She is a wonderful teacher and lovely person!
Madeline Bernstein
Anna was my voice teacher at NYU Steinhardt in the Vocal Performance program. In addition to her warm and welcoming personality, she was a tremendous help in transforming my voice for the better! She is wonderful at helping to visualize different parts of the voice as an instrument, and she not only helped me to expand the flexibility and ease of my head voice, but also helped me explore my lower register, while seamlessly bridging the gap between the two.

We'll work on material of your choosing or material provided by me. We'll find your "type" (very important in the business!) and then begin working on acing those kinds of roles. I'll also teach you the business side and how to "increase your value" as an actor.

I've been acting since I was a child, and in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm an award-winning actor and director with a true passion for storytelling. I've been in films on Amazon Prime (Something, House of Manson) on Television on the Lifetime Network (My Crazy Ex), and in many Theatre shows(Proof, Down the Road, Savage Love).

I have a BA in Acting from The Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University, am a graduate of the two-year Meisner program at DBA studio, and have studied Audition Technique, Stanislavski, Scene Study, Improv, Perfecting Self-Tapes, and in a Master Class for years. As a filmmaker who cast, wrote, and directed the short 'There's No Word for Us', I also have experience on the other side ...

Hello all! Acting is a passion of mine and in my teaching lessons I would like to have many facets to enable each actor to become more confident, skilled, and comfortable in their acting. Each lesson will be tailored to each specific student, but what my goals are is to introduce stage acting , film acting, audition tips, cold reading, acting while singing, adding material to your notebook for last minute auditions, and just to enhance your ability to live a life on stage or on film as it if it were reality. Thank you for your interest and I hope to work with you!
Sincerely,
