Using short scenes and monologues, I help students work on character development and with speaking their lines. I also help them to think about intention.

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

Hello there!

I am a working actor with over 20 years of professional experience. Prior to moving to LA, I worked in Chicago theaters for 7 years and served as an adjunct faculty member at Cal State Fullerton for another 7 years teaching beginning acting classes. I am a member of Actors' Equity; the union of professional stage actors and I hold an MFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton. Recent stage credits include South Coast Repertory, New Swan Shakespeare Festival, Capital Stage Sacramento, Golden Thread Productions, and The Great River Shakespeare Festival.

I'm particularly adept at working with complicated and classical language, including Shakespeare. I'll help you make sense of the language in a way that is actionable and dynamic to watch. My approach is Stanislavski based, but I tend to incorporate other methods as well.

My goal is always to give my students the tools to empower themselves to create strong choices that are supported by the text. I love working with ...

Delicate adjustments that empowered me and didn’t freak me out, both gently technical and also getting to the core of the scene at hand. Again, without demoralizing me or freaking me out. Easy to do. Trust me.

So yes! He was great! ALSO the logistical stuff that you don’t want to think about (sound/lights) were magically adjusted to perfection.

Just sayin’. He’s great.
Megan
I had college auditions coming up and needed to get coaching on my classical monologue. Adam's coaching was really helpful. He got me to understand the language and the meaning behind the words and how to use my express myself, physically, through the text. He helped me feel really confident going into my auditions. I can't recommend him enough!!!
Matthew
Patient, understanding and informative!

I just finished my third lesson with Taylor. We are doing piano / digital music production hybrid course, but we are starting with learning to read sheet music as we both agree it will be a very useful skill to have down the line when I start doing my own compositions...even if my focus is digital production.

She is a fantastic teacher, explains concepts clearly, and is patient with my slow learning curve. She also very professionally handles student progress notes, and always emails copies of all relevant notes on each lesson for easy review and practice.

I'm very pleased to have started my journey into the world of music with her as my guide. Five stars.
Geane R.
This was my first lesson, so it’’s a little difficult to critique; however, Taylor was patient with me, and ,knowledgeable, interesting and informative. I like that.

Taylor is kind, thoughtful and very knowledgeable with teaching piano. Highly recommend!

Audio for picture is a special gift. And one of the few places you can get paid to create orchestral music any more.

If you have the passion to do this, I can show you how to set up a system to realize your dream.

Make no mistake, you need the theory and many other skills as well. But you will learn the flow and energy that is critical to making a scene come to life. And you might be the next Hans Zimmer.

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with.

In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you should be able to pick out intervals at the piano, or better yet, accompany yourself and everyone needs some music theory. So it really is all one thing.

My son Liam has been Randy’s student for almost a year. Liam’s superpower is autism, and that means we work in “Liam time.” Randy is great at reading Liam and does an amazing job of helping us balance work on Liam’s music and his voice acting. Randy has taken us far, and we’re excited to see how much farther Liam can go in the next year with Randy guiding the way! I highly recommend Randy L, especially if your student faces extra challenges!

Emma is a wonderful teacher. She was genuine and gentle when giving feedback. She was very relatable to my daughter who is 13 and made her feel completely at ease. My daughter learned a lot in one lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it.
AriDy Nox
Emma is an incredible performer, artist, song-writer, and educator! She is incredibly patient, kind, welcoming, and warm. She is extremely talented and attentive, which results in invaluable knowledge being imparted on a constant basis and encouraging critique on areas where one is more challenged.

Worth every penny!

Emma is a great and patient acting teacher. While my other teachers rarely dived into my characters' objectives, Emma never fails to work with me on character development, script analysis, projection, breathing, and stage presence. I learned so much from her, I recommend her for everyone.

"With a background as an actor, writer, and director, Zach brings so much to the table. He truly understands the actor's process, offering invaluable guidance and insight, and knows how to bring out an actor's most genuine, connected, and truthful work. His approach is broadened and strengthened by the fact that he deeply understands the anatomy of a script, and can break down the beats of a scene like no one else. I cannot recommend Zach highly enough."
