All of Rick’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Rick’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Film

I have taught Acting for the Camera and The Business of Show Business, Commercial Acting, and Voiceover for over 15 years to actors of all ages.

Marketing

I served for over 15 years as Marketing Director for California Theatre Center (CTC), a professional, not-for-profit theatre company which specializes in curriculum-based productions for elementary school field trips. I was responsible for marketing, PR and sales for a 10-20 production Young Audiences Series, a Summer Repertory series for adults and families, an extensive education program and Tours across the US. A licensed Realtor prior to that, I marketed residential and commercial rental properties for several years. My minor in college was Business Psychology, so it made sense that I ended up in marketing.

Public Speaking

With a BA in Theatre, an MFA in Acting & Directing, and over 30 years of acting, vocal training, teaching and public speaking, Rick has the knowledge and experience to help students to communicate effectively using the tools of theatre. Acting techniques, storytelling, vocal clarity, humor and musicality are essential tools for public speakers to communicate clearly and capture an audience.

Theatre

I have produced, directed, designed, crewed, marketed and acted in over 100 productions and have toured all over the US and to the South Pacific.

Voice (Music)

Rick has been singing and performing publicly since childhood. From church choirs and solos, to swing and show choirs, musicals and over 6 years of private vocal study with an opera coach formerly with the Metropolitan Opera, Rick has the experience necessary to assist students in finding their natural and unique voice.

Having acted professionally and taught for nearly 25 years, Rick has guided many students on how to "sell", interpret and communicate a song, develop a dependable, durable vocal technique, and move an audience. With experience in jingles and voiceover, he can help students discover the theatricality and storytelling aspects of a song as well as exercises in breathing, projection, diction and audition techniques. Since Rick is not an accompanist, focus will be on technique, interpretation and projection rather than pure musicianship. Students will work primarily with recorded music.
