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!

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. It’s a very fun and safe environment!
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 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.
When I booked the job, I asked what made me stand out. She said that I was excited to just jump in, 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! 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 L.A., 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. She 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.
I love acting. I completely identify with the medium. I love great movies, shows, actors, directors, but until I met Robin, I’d never been as inspired by a teacher. I felt that Robin shared the same integrity I value so much.
Every minute of class was insightful, exciting, and personal. Along with teaching me extremely useful techniques to help dig into the story and character I’m portraying, she reminded me to trust my instinct and fuel my performances with my gut. I realized a lot about myself with Robin, both in private coaching sessions and in class.
I’m so happy to have met her and work with her. I HIGHLY recommend her to any actor who values the process, and not only the result. I’ll always remember my first great teacher.
