Lesson Details

Improv Acting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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!

I have worked professionally as a singer and actor for over twelve years, having performed on Broadway in Lincoln Center's Tony-winning Revival of "South Pacific" with Paulo Szot, Laura Osnes, and Danny Burstein and toured the country with Rob McClure and Anika Larson in the First National Tour of "Avenue Q." I have an MFA in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, graduated summa cum laude, and was the only female recipient of the Presidential Scholarship for Vocal Performance. My BA is in Arts and Education from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. I'm currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

Over 90% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

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.
