Acting the Song

In person classes on hiatus due to Covid-19. Please check back for a schedule of Zoom classes in 2021, and join Robin's mailing list to be updated as well.

The class is designed for actors, dancers and singers, at all levels of experience and training, who are interested in learning how to express, through song, the action and the meaning of the lyric. You will work in a group, at your own level, in a fully safe and supportive environment. Robin will help you to choose material, to interpret songs, and most importantly to reach your highest potential, as a singer and an actor. Each person will have the opportunity to receive personal one on one instruction every week. Watch the video trailer.

New Student Registration


New students are asked to audit Acting the Song first. Auditing students may bring prepared material. The choice to participate is up to the individual. An audit is the student’s opportunity to audition the work being presented in class. Audit fee is $20.


Once a student has audited, and has expressed an interest in joining the class, they will fill out a brief form, which I will then review. After which, I will follow up to discuss whether or not the class is the right fit for both myself and the student. Students are notified within one week of their audit as to whether or not they have been accepted.

Ross Patterson

Since I began teaching the Acting the Song class, I have had the great good fortune of working and collaborating with Ross Patterson, one of the finest and most accomplished pianists in New York City. Our collaboration is a gift. His masterful talent and keen sensitivity to each student and their work has without a doubt enhanced my work as a teacher. We have developed a short hand with each other which is very rare, and one that I treasure, along with a style of working together built upon respect, trust and joy. Read more about Ross Patterson
