I love teaching acting, and the art of singing and acting. I start every lesson with a cold reading, and assign two monologues (one dramatic, one comedic). We work through the monologues exploring all angles of the character, and studying the art of subtext, and the Stanislavski method.
Eventually we explore local auditions and spend the time preparing for those upcoming auditions, and eventual roles.

I have been teaching voice and music lessons for several years now to a wide range and variety of students. I have successfully helped individuals learn how to sing, speak, act, write songs, and play the piano. Some students come to me to build their confidence or skills. Other students come to me just to have a really great time. All my students grow from their experiences learning music with me. I use a variety of methods and it all depends on what you, as a student, are needing from your lessons. My background is diverse. I have written and recorded dozens of musical albums over the last decade. I often perform for music and theater events in Seattle and Washington. I have a bachelor of science in contemporary vocal performance and a master of arts in information and learning ...

Hi! Let me first start by saying that you are brilliant. You are an exceptional human being with talent, passion, and most important: purpose! My name is Nicole, and I cannot wait to meet you!
I started coaching and directing actors for fun in high school, over the past 12 years it has grown into more than hobby, it's a lifestyle. I have coached new actors in NYC, Atlanta, and currently LA.
I do not teach technique, I coach and inspire the actor to think outside the box and discover treasures beyond the text.
I provide a laid back atmosphere in the comfort of my home while giving you freedom to express your concerns and goals in your career. Then we work. Be sure to have a monologue memorized.
No two actors are a like, so the process depends on the person. What's mostly covered is the following:
How to Identify the truth in what you are saying and doing
Letting go of fear
Overcoming intimidation on and off set/stage
It is impossible for me to meet an actor that is afraid, doubtful, or worrisome about their place in “Hollywood" or the industry, and not speak hope into their existence as an actor. More importantly, as a person. If you don't know and believe you are enough as you are, right now, no one will believe you. More specifically, a casting director. If that is you, guess what? You do not have to stay in that place of fear or doubt a moment longer.
I have been acting for as long as I can remember. Walking in the minds of others is not only immensely fun, but can build a deeper empathy than any other enterprise.
I have been teaching acting and theory for 3 years and believe in a practical approach: to learn to act, one must act!
I focus on tricks for memorizing lines, improvisation, and character development.
