Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.
Thomas S.
Sandra was terrific ... it's been ages since I did any singing and she made me feel very comfortable reengaging. I'm really looking forward to working with her going forward.
Eric G.
Sandra is a very positive and enthusiastic teacher. She makes sure you are following proper technique and is thorough in telling you which steps to follow. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to try singing lessons or who wishes to improve their technique.

***Acting in Performance***

Learn How to Take a Role From The Page to The Stage.

So many acting classes stop short. They only teach a person the skills of an actor. Not how to take these skills and apply them practically in a production.

*This is a couching session for actors who are in rehearsal for a play, or are preparing to go into the rehearsal process.

*This is an opportunity to get couching if you're having difficulty working with a fellow actor or a director.

*To learn how to communicate better with your collaborators, in a open productive way.

*This is a safe environment to discuss sensitive topics. How to deal with actors or directors who cross boundaries

1. Learn what is expected of you in rehearsal.
2. How to work with and independently of your director.
3. Understand your relationship to your fellow actors on stage and off.

**Learn How to Prepare for a Performance.**

Nicholas was an absolutely amazing instructor. He was extremely patient and understanding with my schedule. He helped me go over a few monolgues for several weeks, break them down, and really dissect them to best fit my technique. Working with him really changed my approach, as well as motivation with acting in general, highly reccomend him as a private instructor!
Inji G.
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.

Online Theater Acting Teacher

I have been acting and teaching professionally for over 15 years. Onstage I have had the pleasure of working at many of the most respected theaters in the country. It is my passion to help each and every student improve their acting technique and learn about their own abilities as a performer. Each student will receive one on one instruction, helping them achieve their performance goals regardless of their performance level. My approach is multidisciplinary and incorporates the tools of Stanislavsky, Meisner, Viewpoints, and Laban.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

If you ever receive and opportunity to work with Barry understand you'll be put to a challenge and be expected to challenge yourself. I was able to experience and learn many things in Theater acting, Speaking voice, Singing and Music theory and I could never be more grateful for everything he passed on to me as knowledge ."

"To be honest I've never acted a day in my life before. Tamika was absolutely wonderful in helping me calm my (obvuously) nervous self, and worked with what I naturally brought to the stage and highlighted my own attributes. By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job). Thank you again Tamika, for really helping me develop skills and traits for the acting stage even I didn't know I had in me! I loom forward to working with you again soon!"

"Tamika is a great teacher. It was easy working with her because she is passionate, honest, reliable, relatable and fun. She encouraged me to audition for the stage play "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and I made it in. She continued to work with me as an Artist Development teacher in the play. She really helped me as an actor and teaching me to take on the character I was portraying. It was amazing seeing myself grow as an actor and getting better during the whole process. I was able to put on a good performance because of her guidance and tutelage. I definitely recommend her."

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!"
