Robin was the first acting coach I had when I got to LA and I still find myself going back to her teachings when I approach an audition. She has a very welcoming personality and made me feel safe to take chances and try new things. From the moment I met her, I felt like she was a long lost friend or relative I hadn’t seen in a while. She has one of those beautiful souls that you can’t help but take valuable lessons from! (IMDB page)
Robin has a deep understanding of actors: she makes me feel safe and free while holding me to the highest gold standard. Thanks to Robin, my auditions are more connected and authentic.
Most importantly, she has given me the priceless gift of knowing how to own a role completely, no matter the time constraint – an invaluable resource for an auditioning actor. I am so grateful to you, Robin! (IMDB page)
“Coaching with Robin helps me get to the truth and heart of any character. She makes it simple yet effective which helps me spend less time in my head and more time in my body.” (IMDB page)
“Thanks for making acting fun again and not some intense competition. It’s more exciting when you stop working and start playing.” (IMDB page)
I absolutely loved your intensive class and will be coming to you when I need coaching. Thank you so much for everything. (IMDB page)
Robin helps me trust my instincts. I don’t think there is any greater gift for an actor. (IMDB page)
“Thank you for your extraordinary dedication and energy. I enjoy the process again! I’ve been getting much more pleasure and satisfaction out of my work since we met. You’ve shown me that this incredible journey I’m on is a fun and exciting exploration rather than a threat. So, thank you!”
“My work with Robin landed me my first series regular role. I coached with her for my callback and before I even had a chance to share the notes that I’d gotten from the Casting Director, Robin already knew what I needed to bring to the role. We got to the physical core of my character and I left feeling really empowered and clear about my choices.
It was such a great experience I asked Robin to coach me again for a “third” audition tape. No one had asked me for another tape, but I was going out of the country and I wanted to be prepared. I explained this to Robin and she was super supportive and committed to helping me get my best work – even if we didn’t know if anyone would be watching.
Luckily, someone did and I booked the job. Our role prep coaching sessions took it all even deeper, so I could bring a complex character to every shoot.” (IMDB page)
“I’m glad I have Robin in my corner. Her coaching has led me to deeper, more authentic work, with great results. Her audition coaching absolutely helped me book a guest spot and a series regular role!
So of course I went back to her for role prep coaching, and our session prepared me to walk on the pilot set with a fully developed character ready to play.” (IMDB page)
“It was such a pleasure coaching with you for this role. Everything we worked on really sank in and I owned it and it was so much fun and intense. You were so enlightening yesterday. I can’t wait to coach with you again!”
“It was such a relief to walk into a room with so much knowledge and depth about the character for just the first casting. It really allowed me to live through the audition instead of rush or ramble through it. The entire experience was very satisfying. Thank you.” (IMDB page)
“Robin is such a delight to work with! She offered me a FUN, safe, creative and collaborative workspace to develop a role I booked. She had clearly spent a lot of time with the script beforehand and was therefore very prepared to offer invaluable insight for the life I would be living. By the time we finished our session, I left with a solid sense of my character and felt much more prepared for the subsequent shoot days. I highly recommend working with Robin. She’s the best!” (IMDB page)
“Robin is by far better than every acting coach/teacher I’ve ever had. She has a unique ability to understand what you are not grasping and gets you to understand how to make the changes within you and your approach to truly “live the life” of the character. She is completely devoid of b.s. and a real person with a passion for teaching. The classes don’t have any of the touchy-feely, group therapy bullshit that waste your time and money. You come here to learn a technique, get on camera, see what’s not working, and make it work…. and maybe flirt with the cute girls all around you. It’s a very fun and safe environment!”
“Robin coached me for several auditions and truly helped me connect with the character and deepen my work every time. I find myself using the tips and techniques she taught me again and again. She is kind and intelligent and communicates her ideas clearly. I will definitely coach with her again!!” (IMDB page)
“Having Robin as an instructor was like having an intuitive friend guide you along an unknown path. She saw where I wanted/needed to go as I explored truthfulness and empathy in my acting. She made it look easy and helped me become fearless. You might think playing the lead on Broadway makes it easy to transition to TV/film, but it wasn’t easy for me to be in front of the camera; I loved that she took me where I was at, helped me grow and allowed me to be who I truly am. So rewarding, and so worth it.”
“Thanks a million, Robin for the role prep coaching! You are really good at your job. Filming was A BLAST! Your instincts about the script were right on and I felt free to play. Director Zoe Cassavetes loved what I was doing and led me even further into a silly carefree territory, which was so fun. Thanks for helping me get out of my head and enjoy it!”
“I just wanted to say thank you thank you! You have been the best acting teacher and coach I have had to date – by an infinite amount. You reminded me why I love to act. I am so looking forward to the ongoing class and more private coaching. Thank you for telling me it is okay to be vulnerable and that I am enough – you just don’t hear that very often in this town.”
“I booked a pilot! And I believe that your classes are the reason I booked it.
The entire audition was “cold reads only.” All I had was the breakdown of the character and then I was given my scene 5 minutes before I auditioned. I went in with a confidence, excitement and the skills I learned working with you. After I read for the part of Rita, the director asked me to read for another part and again I only had about five minutes. I went in and read again, she gave me adjustments and we read again and I made the adjustments.
When I booked the job, I actually had the guts to ask what made me stand out. She said that I was excited to just jump in, that I wasn’t scared of the cold read and it didn’t paralyze me. Instead, she said I got more connected and made every adjustment without getting nervous.
So I wanted to thank you! Thank you Miss Robin! Working with you has really made me confident and even more excited about my craft! When I’m done filming you will see me again in class.”
“In Los Angeles, acting coaches are abundant; exceptional acting coaches are rare. Robin is one of these rare finds. She challenges you without berating you. She praises your milestones without accepting you’ve peaked. She provides a safe place while pushing you past your comfort zone.
She gives you a set of tools to digs deep into the emotional life of a character. Her classroom allows you to grow as a person and an actor. This translates to a better experience in the audition room and a richer life.
I recently had an important meeting/audition with a top theatrical agency I wanted to impress. My coaching session with Robin prepared me for that and led to me signing with the agency. Woo hoo! As I continue to grow and practice my craft, I will continue to go back to Robin.”
