I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

I understand that sometimes people have a hard time speaking in front of others, but really want to improve. Whether it be, because you aren't speaking clearly enough, aren't projecting enough or need to get over your jitters, let's see what we can do. We can work on monologues or look at what event you're preparing for. Even if it is a speech for school or for an event at work. Both Acting and Singing have helped me with these issues. Working in front of someone that knows what to listen for and can help you to tweak what you've been doing might be the best solution.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

He went far beyond my expectations and it pains me to have to end classes(unforeseen circumstances) although I have a feeling this is not the last time I will take class with him. He is a Fantastic teacher but also a friend and I believe his method of teaching will greatly improve anyone that is seeking to improve their skills. Thank you so much David, until next time."

4 Drama Techniques to Always Remember

Stars like Meryl Streep and Al Pacino make it look easy, but if you want to become a professional actor, don't expect to rely on talent alone. Even if you're a natural performer who can cry on command and memorize lines, you'll need to learn the following fundamental drama techniques to really master the art of acting. 1. Vocal Dynamics Your lines are just words until you deliver them, but unless your voice is well-trained, they'll still fall flat or sound forced. In order to accurately port …
