I tailor each lesson to the actor. I create a safe space to play and learn. I empower and uplift each student so they approach the work with excitement instead of fear. Together, we create realistic goals for the actor's career. We may work on auditions, self tapes, scenes, anything and everything the actor is struggling with.

I help each student analyze the script so they can make strong choices that are unique to their acting talents.

Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.
Stella
Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

I received a BFA in Acting from The Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and I've been working as an actor for the past ten years. I know how challenging it can be to prepare an audition, especially if you're doing it by yourself. As your coach, I want to work WITH you to build the confidence you need to make bold, positive choices that excite and energize your performance. After all, an audition is an opportunity to act, and an opportunity to show them what you can do.

I have a enjoyed Acting since preparing and performing many roles in high school and college. As I prepared for my Masters Degree performance and then opening in Berlin Germany I learned many acting skills that helped me reach my goals.
I have many students that study acting to help them express emotion in their everyday life.

About Amber

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role. Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Ren

Amber is simply the best. She has a knack for determining my level and knows how far to push me in practices and recommending homework. Her experience serves her well. She is inspiring, motivating and blunt which goes a long way because she is very directed at her constructive criticism and points that need to be improved.
Aadhav
Amber is an amazing teacher who is kind and appreciates the student. She teaches with great passion and makes the student feel the music. I could see my son progressing already and his confidence level has gone up. He shows great interest and practices more than before!
Miranda
I have been taking piano lessons and singing lessons from Amber for about a year. I have had big music dreams for most of my life, but have just recently found the courage to give it a try. I was an absolute beginner in singing and had a few months experience with the piano. In both aspects, Amber has completely changed my life. I am more confident in my skills, I enjoy practicing, and I am starting to see a HUGE difference in my vocals and piano from when I started.

Amber asks you to put in work in order to achieve your musical goals. Follow her advice, and I promise you will not be disappointed. Before you know it, you will have gained skills in sight-reading, in breath support, in playing through distraction, in singing and playing with correct form, and in building confidence in yourself and your abilities. I love Amber, and I would choose her again and again if I could.

A friend of mine just booked a job after using him and he was the one who hooked me up with this guys info. I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it. I now walk into casting rooms more confedent and for the very first time ended up testing for not one but two different pilots that he has coached me on. Can not recommend this man enough!"
