I was a Theater Arts major at Trinity University where I took part in several productions, including Cabaret, Trojan Women, Chemin de Fer and Die Fledermaus. AT San Antonio Little Theater I performed in No, No, Nanette and Philemon. As a student at UTSA, I performed in Trial by Jury, Boris Godunov, Iolanthe and the Madrigal Christmas Dinners. I was hired by UTSA as a paid performer in the Madrigal Christmas dinners from 1984 to 1989. From 1989 to 1995 I taught Music and Drama at Converse Elementary. In the 1990's I performed in The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni as part of the San Antonio Festival. I have done freelance work over the years as a performer for special events. As an elementary music teacher and secondary choir teacher, I have produced and directed numerous programs and musicals. I have taught acting and public speaking to a number of students.

I have a lot of experience helping students work through their monologues and dialogue, helping them not only in their performance, but in how to go about getting the monologue or dialogue learned in the first place!
I help students begin to understand who the character is, why the saying what they are saying, and how to approach the character in a way that is honest.

About Anne

I am a graduate of Montclair State University with a degree in Vocal Performance. Since then, I have performed with many opera companies in Southern California, with roles such as Sesto in "Guilio Cesare", Serpina in "La Serva Padrona" and Frasquita in "Carmen." I love opera and musical theater, a

Anne is an experienced vocalist and an incredible coach. She can address technique issues quickly and provides effective correction so you can sound your best!
Christina
I've been taking lessons with Anne for years. She's accomodating and versatile. The last voice lesson I had with her helped me nail my audition and clean up all the rough edges on the piece I had learned. Needless to say, I got the part!
What I love most about Anne's lessons is her patience when working through something to prefect it. She wants you to perform to the best of your ability. Just as she challenges herself, she challenges you. HIGHLY suggest.
Molly
Anne is knowledgeable, passionate, and deeply devoted to her students. She has a clarity about the way she explains vocal concepts that makes it very accessible. She also had a beautiful voice and is an excellent musician and performer.

I’ve made a life for myself in the creative fields, and I’d like the opportunity to work with you!
I’m an award-winning actor and have Broadway, off-Broadway, Television, Film credits. I am also a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated Director, and a Producer. Throughout my career, I have always been a teacher, and have helped develop, and nurture the careers of countless young actors and professionals with practical tools to make them better! As a young actor, I was lucky to be trained by an incredible mentor for many years, he instilled in me a deep respect for the art form, and as it should be I impart that knowledge to everyone I teach. I will teach you to be the best actor you can be, that’s a guarantee.
In Los Angeles I coach professional actors, most recently the female lead In Will Smiths Bad Boys III, as well as one of the male principals in the Mark Walberg Film Patriots Day. My process is simple, and yet through. Script analysis, so you know exactly what the material ...

Carlo is an amazing actor and teacher. He teaches you to commit 1000%, and he is always invested in you as a coach/director. No matter what you’re working on in your acting, he will guide you to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of, always with a great sense of humor. I can’t recommend him enough!
Charles Burks
Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools of acting which can be very overwhelming into simple and manageable steps. He has a deep respect for the art form and a practical no-nonsense way to help you find the truth in your acting while finding a way to make it dynamic, and help you stand out. I always recommend him, and will continue to do so! His teaching has employed many actors over the least 10+ years
Benjamin
Carlo is truly WOW! His classes are not only deeply insightful, but pure entertainment. He has become my acting mentor. He has changed the way that I approach acting and I owe much of my success to him.

"Nicholas knows Shakespeare and classical work. He really works with the text and helps an actor really understand the emotions in the scene, through the text. I've gotten so much out of his teaching and so have many of my friends. If you have an audition or play coming up, he's the one to get you ready for it! My friend nailed his audition, got the gig, all through his work with Nicholas. I've learned so much as an actor from Nicholas."
