Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to be a professional will need these things in addition to acting training. Being good and showing Pele in a short time that you're good aren't necessarily the same skill.

I've taught private lessons for many years and would love to see if our styles mesh!

About Rebecca L.

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca immediately made my granddaughter comfortable. Rebecca is a sweet, charming woman who, I can see, works very well with both children and adults. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to make people feel good about themselves.

AMAZING! Rebecca is so nice and made me feel so relaxed. I was TERRIFIED of singing in front of other people but she didn't care that my voice cracked and that I sung quietly she was so amazing!

Rebecca was very knowledgeable and helpful for my very first lesson. I believe she can really help me improve my pitch and teach me to become a better singer! She is also a very kind woman and has an overall caring approach.. I’m happy I found her and I’m looking forward to working together!

My granddaughter was so delighted with the entire process. I feel this will help her vocals and boost her confidence level. When you're 13 it can be a difficult age. My granddaughter felt very very comfortable and at ease..thanks to Rebecca!

Becca has been very instrumental to the enhancement of my voice acting career! She goes above and beyond for you and truly loves and cares about what she's doing!

She really stands out because she is incredibly knowledgeable, resourceful, and has the perfect amount of charisma where she is encouraging and builds your confidence, at the same time is very honest and to the point!

She knows how to delve into your full potential with your voice and I look forward to receiving further lessons as needed!

Every penny and then some, is worth her training!

Rebecca makes me feel comfortable when acting and as a shy person that is amazing! She dosent tell u if you are a bad actor or if you are going to make it as an actor she helps you improve and tells you what u are already good at and what we could work on. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to do this!

I absolutely love Becca! She is so encouraging and knowledgeable. I recently got cast in a musical and I was pretty nervous. I found Rebecca and after our first lesson I knew it was a great fit. She made me feel so comfortable and I think, we accomplished a lot in just the first lesson! I strongly recommend her to anyone who is either starting out or has some experience.
