We will also work on learning to read music, and most importantly work on songs that will bring out the actor in you.

My son is 16 and has been taking lessons with sandra since November of 2014. Sandra not only focuses on singing techniques to build your support and vocal strength, but also helps with understanding sheet music and acting within a musical piece. She is extremely personable and friendly. She has helped my son expand his vocal range, and she taught him vocal techniques to use to develop his voice. My son does musical theatre, and Sandra has taken a significant amount time during each lesson to help him sing the songs comfortably and understand the acting stand point in each song. She is a great teacher for him.

My daughter is 14 years old and we needed some help with an acting role for her school musical. Sandra was wonderful, in a brief time she was able to help her understand that it is important to own the role. I feel as though my daughter came a long way. My daughter did get the role that she auditioned for in her High School play and she is only a freshman. Thanks very much Sandra!

She is the absolute best! Not only does she help build a foundation, but also helps the student achieve their goals. She is patient and always has a different way to explain things, if you don't understand. I would recommend her to any person, of any level, interested in getting a singing teacher.

Rachel is wonderful for so many reasons. She allows her students to feel comfortable and fills them with confidence. It had been over 6 years since the last time I sang publicly and I came to Rachel very nervous and filled with stage fright. With her as my vocal coach I am now more confident and a much stronger singer then I could have imagined and this is only after working with her for less then a year and I can not wait to see what she has in store for me next. She is truly a gifted teacher.

Sandra T.

Philadelphia, PA

Each actor will learn to connect emotionally and physically to their world. This will include relaxation exercises which are crucial to understanding the physical challenges of acting. We will explore emotional connections that generate from our thoughts as well as the energy of our physicality. Analyzation of script, development of character, understanding genre and the transition from theatre to film will all be primary elements.

About Sandra

I am a professional actress with a BFA from The University of the Arts in Phila. I have been teaching and coaching at The Actors Center of Phila since 2004. I have coached children on film sets, notably, Morgan Turner on the set Of HBO's Mildred Pierce as well as Catherine Chan on the set of " Safe". I am presently coaching children and adults for film and TV auditioning with management companies in NYC, West Reading, PA and Philadelphia. I also teach general American speech as well as many American and foreign accents. In 2009 I began The Outside the Box theatre company with my advanced teen
class, producing plays that tackle many teen issues such as suicide, drug use and bullying. My approach is to teach the actor not a method. I have studied Meisner, Stanislovsky, Adler etc. I teach what will best serve the actor. I approach acting from a very physical as well as personal place. I'm not always easy but I am fun and effective, if not a bit crazy.
