Discover the Meisner technique with acting lessons from this seasoned actor
I graduated from the Meisner technique in October after studying for 2 years with Kevin Phipps from the Artist Box. Students will start off with basic repetitions and emotion/action identification. This helps the actor to get over their many instinctual walls and filters they have digested over the years and be affected by/affect others. They will then progress to activities and prepping seeds of truth as well as imaginary circumstances. The goal is to find out what helps them prepare emotionally for a role while simultaneously being able to be in the moment and authentically respond to others in the scene.
About Rebecca L.

Greetings! I am super excited to be building a private and small group lesson platform at our home studio and to meet your personal acting and performing needs! Experience: Besides teaching private and semi-private lessons for the past 3 years, I taught Meisner, Monologue, and scene study at JCFilms in 2021,and 2 years of full-time drama and visual art at Lumos Arts Academy- a private arts school I played a role in pioneering in 2017- 2019. I also founded and directed a Theater and Film Program at Experience Arts School where students ages 5- adult could take classes (group or private) or join an acting company for regular performance gigs all across the Valley. I directed multiple musicals during this time. My company competed with the AZ Thespians and took home many superior scores from 2013- 2017. Personally, I have been acting for 25 years in the Mid and Southwest, studied theater at UWOshkosh-where I was a judge for speech and debate high school competitions for years-, film at Scottsdale CC, improv with iO in Chicago, and the Meisner Technique with the renowned Kevin Phipps. I was part of a musical repertory company based in Utah for 8 months, traveled around the Phoenix valley performing in 8 different dinner theaters for 8 years, and have produced and directed multiple professional music videos and actor reels for Soundwaves Productions in Gilbert. I believe that each actor learns differently, and the best way is to become well-rounded in your training to discover what works best for you. I have become very attuned to identifying strengths and weaknesses in actors, and will work with you on the best technique to suit your needs and style. Classes I have created curriculum for/taught include: Monologues Auditioning for theater and film The Meisner Technique Script Analysis Beginning- Advanced Improv Beginning- Advanced Scene Acting Uta Hagen's Repertoire Acting for Film Voice and Diction Music Video Creation Musical Theater Acting/Dance Public Speaking

Rebecca is so great- I was worried about being able to learn improv online, but Rebecca seems to know it so well and can adjust for anyone it seems. I am grateful for all the social skill development it has given me! I never knew I could be funny! :O

Visual Art and Drama Intructor
Jul 2017 - Jul 2019
Lumos Arts Academy
I pioneered the visual art and drama program for this full-time K-12 private school under the direction of Principal Chuck Green and Fine Arts Director Dr. Russell Seaton. Because of our passion to see students thrive at their peak potential and needing knowledgeable decision-making from the ownership to do so, all three of us have left this school to lead and teach on our own terms. However, at this school I created dynamic programs that offered original classes for credit such as Music Video Recording, filming, and production; Theatrical Dance Expression; Visual Art Set and Prop creation for our musicals; as well as improv and traditional acting for stage and film. I also directed 2 musicals with interesting twists, and mentored students 7-12th grade with important life skills based on their needs.
