I'm a teacher, director and all-around guide for actors who want to go out and audition for roles. I provide guidance to seasoned actors by helping them fine-tune both their audition technique and the monologues they choose perform. I lend that critical "outside eye" to help them become aware of what they're actually doing in their piece(s) (details of which they may be unaware); to guide them towards their strengths as an actor (which could be very different than how they think they should be approaching/performing a piece); and to aid them in shaping the monologue into a complete, engaging, performance piece.

For beginners, I introduce them to the basics of good audition/acting technique; help guide them towards monologues that are not only appropriate, but strong choices for them individually; and as with my veteran students, help them shape their pieces into strong, entertaining, 1-2 minute works of theater that underscore the strengths they bring to the table as an actor.

I love sharing the techniques I've honed working with Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and other Tony award winning theaters. We will work on techniques to "own the space", be heard, quickly drop into a character, raise the stakes, and make choices to create an exhilarating performance.

From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown. I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students deve

Online Theater Acting Teacher

Stella Adler, Stanislavsky, Chekhov, and Meisner Acting Technique for Theatre is taught in private and group classes. All students are exposed to each technique and Rachel sees which technique each student responds to the most. Once the student and Rachel are able to identify the technique, Rachel continues to use the terminology of that technique for the remainder of the time the student is in lessons. Students eventually are able to play roles truthfully and realistically, even if the roles are opposite of the student's own personality.

About Rachel

Rachel is fully background checked by three different companies and is also fingerprinted. Rachel's private studio is where you not only learn healthy technique, but how to become a self-sufficient artist. Professional training and customized programs in singing and acting technique. All learnin

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.

How an actor approaches acting on a stage versus film is completely different. Some of the reasons are obvious, for example, with theater you have immediate feedback due to having a live audience. In film you can have multiple takes to get a scene right; however on stage, you have one opportunity to get it right.

In film you want your voice and facial expressions to be as natural as possible. On stage everything has to be bigger in order to convey the right emotion to your audience.

I love performing on stage. I find it more rewarding than film. I have been working in semi~professional theater for over thirty years and am looking forward to sharing what I have learned through the years with other enthusiasts.

About Tina

"I met with Nicholas before an audition. He is a wonderful teacher. He helped me already a great deal during that short hour, on how to approach the material, break it down in a way that will help my performance reach its full potential. I was able to deliver a truthful performance. I am looking forward to more sessions. Many thanks."
