Private Theater Acting Teacher

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2006 and my students are working professionally! I also direct theater productions, and can help raise you to the talent level casting directors expect at auditions. My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools, and better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

She is truly excellent! Guided me through my audition and her input was very valuable. She is also very personable and reliable.

Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!
Todd B.
My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

Private Theater Acting Teacher

As a professor of voice at NYU for ten years and the owner of a private studio in NYC for over fifteen years, the students I’ve trained have gone on to Broadway and major musical theater productions throughout the US, to graduate programs in opera at top conservatories, and to successful careers as independent artists in the pop and indie music world. As a vocal technician and a vocal coach I understand that each student and each voice is unique, and I work to uncover your true sound through a solid technical foundation that will free your voice and expressive capabilities. As a composer, songwriter and actor I can incorporate music theory, lyric writing, acting for song as well as monologues or scene work, audition preparation, career coaching and branding into any private lesson setting, depending on the student’s needs and goals.

Anna was my voice teacher for 3 years at NYU Steinhardt for music theater/vocal performance. I feel so lucky to have had her as a teacher. When I started, I had never taken any formal training and felt like I had a lot to learn. Anna gave me tools that I still use to this day for my specific voice. She helped develop a language through our lessons that made the concepts easier to comprehend. Anna was not only extremely connected to the technical aspect of singing, but also the artistic side. She always placed an emphasis on telling a story through music, and that was my favorite thing about being a student of hers. As a performer, she was always pushing me to know what I was singing about and why I was singing. I cannot say enough amazing things about her as a teacher and as a human being! Thank you Anna!
Alia
Anna is an incredibly talented and knowledgeable teacher. She helped me to reach all of my singing goals in the time that I worked with her, and the skills and vocal awareness she imparted to me have been incredibly useful in my professional life. She is a wonderful teacher and lovely person!
Madeline Bernstein
Anna was my voice teacher at NYU Steinhardt in the Vocal Performance program. In addition to her warm and welcoming personality, she was a tremendous help in transforming my voice for the better! She is wonderful at helping to visualize different parts of the voice as an instrument, and she not only helped me to expand the flexibility and ease of my head voice, but also helped me explore my lower register, while seamlessly bridging the gap between the two.

I love sharing the techniques I've honed working with Steppenwolf, Chicago Shakespeare and other Tony award winning theaters. We will work on techniques to "own the space", be heard, quickly drop into a character, raise the stakes, and make choices to create an exhilarating performance.

I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.

Online Theater Acting Teacher

Theater Acting is a skill quite different from film acting. I have been teaching acting for three years. Build up repertoire, learn to dissect a character and a monologue, character development, finding a goal to become the character and deliver a line the right way.

Also encourage creating and writing your own work and researching others for inspiration.

***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.

Very helpful instructor. Worked with me on moot court preperation for law school. Focusing on highlighting the operative words in phrases and lists. Would reccomend to anyone who really wants to better themselves as a public speaker and orator!
Niamh
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.

"Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!"
