Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

My professional background and experience includes acting (stage & screen), directing, and playwriting. As a result, I often include aspects of each discipline in my work with Actors (including teacher development training sessions).
I present students of all ages with creative challenges within the scope of select (Spolin/Stanislavski-based) theater exercises and games, later providing them with more advanced opportunities to incorporate the related skills into their scene-study work.

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 ...

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."
