Acting for film requires finding simple powerful ways to transmit the emotions and inner world of the character. I work with the student to keep their work simple, yet powerful.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

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 have been working with Nicola for the past 4 months and I would highly recommend her for anyone that is completely new to the French language. She is very flexible and willing to design the lesson to meet your goals. Nicola has a way of making learning a new language interesting, fun and non-intimidating. I have done both in-person and online lessons with Nicola and I find that both are equally as effective. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a French tutor.
Angela
Nicola has been tutoring my daughter in 7th grade French. She’s wonderful, speaks like a native, and is very reliable. My daughter’s French grade has improved dramatically! We are very happy with her, and highly recommend her to all.

We've only had one lesson but Nicola is smart and great at explaining as she goes. I'm an adult and love her teaching style, and I could also see her being great with kids!

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

We will work on material you have, or I'll send you a scene(s) weekly!
We can cover Comedy, Drama, Improv, Commercials, and even the business side of things like resumes, headshots, website profiles, and representation.

Whether you're an EXPERIENCED actor looking for a refresh, or BRAND NEW; and whether you're interested in just FUN or real CAREER moves, I've got knowledge from real experience to share.

Donnabella is a great teacher to have. I started off shy and unsure of what I was doing but I have been slowly gaining confidence because of her positive personality. She educated me a lot from the start and gives good advices to improve on. She's chill and focused on helping me grow. I am able to understand acting more now through her experiences. She knows her stuff!

Donnabella is a great instructor and teacher! She gives practical advice that you can use immediately for an audition. She works with you to refine your skills and work toward your goals. She is very encouraging and I always feel like I have accomplished something at the end of my lesson. She feels like an old friend!

"Taking lessons with Rachel has been one the best decisions I've ever made. She not only has helped me with acting but has helped me become a better person. I've grown to understand myself and I've learned and done things I would never have done. And would never have been able to do. Her lessons will not only help you perform, they will help you in your everyday life."

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

"I met Alicia through a school for modeling and acting, my daughter had just started classes there, I had previously submit her application for a short film audition, not affiliated with the school. I was nervous when contacted for the audition, knowing she has no experience, I mentioned her audition to Alicia and my fear, she was so excited for my daughter and was willing to work with her as her acting coach, my daughter not only got the part, I was told her audition was awesome. Alicia coached my daughter only twice before her actual location shoot day, I received so many compliments from the film director and camera crew how well my daughter played her role like a pro, thanks to Alicia. I recommend Alicia to a friend of mine in need of an acting coach for her 5yr old son, she is excited so is her son, he enjoys every minute with his coach. Alicia is the best and will bring out the best in her students."
