Rhonda Musak, Acting Coach

As an acting coach, I help actors unlock the magic in their acting.
I thoroughly enjoy Rhonda's energy and her commitment to the creative process. Her generosity of spirit and the soulful way she approaches the work is powerful, transformative.

Spring has sprung, though winter seems to be dragging right on through. May flowers better be on their way or Mother Nature will pay!

March was a busy month of coaching here at Art & Soul Acting...and acting, too. I was thrilled that my solo show, Rhonda Badonda: The Adventures of a Girl with a Pain in Her Brain, was a part of Women's History Month at the Bernie Wohl Center on the Upper West Side. The following week I brought Rhonda Badonda to the campus of SUNY Purchase and have already begun booking the show into 2019.

On March 25 I took part once again in the chalk memorial honoring the, mostly, girls and women who died 107 years ago in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. This year I chalked for Mary Herman who, incidentally, lived right next door to my first apartment in NYC.

To take part in or to learn more about this simple but powerful memorial project, please visit Street Pictures.

And later that evening, I watched my dear friend Abbie Killeen open off-Broadway in her dream project, Babette's Feast. The show is, indeed, a feast for the soul. Go see it! Babette's Feast - Tickets use code BFFNF for $49.50 tix.

And finally, change is afoot here at Art & Soul Acting. Somewhere deep in the cyber of cyberspace lives my brand new website. I am beyond excited to have gotten started! My plotting, planning, dreaming and scheming is fully under way and I plan to launch the new site on June 1. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, if you'd like to dive into your work with some private acting coaching, I've got you covered! (See more below.)

Wishing you a month of joy beyond measure!

Rhonda Musak
Acting Coach

Acting support that's all about you...exactly when you need it.

All private acting coaching sessions begin with a brief warm-up. A session can be used to focus on any of the following:
  • Monologues
  • Cold Readings
  • Audition Process & Technique
  • On-Camera Audition Recording
  • Preparation for an Upcoming Audition
  • Exercises to Stretch the Actors Instrument
  • Scene Study
  • Preparation for an Upcoming Role
  • Acting Technique Breakdown for an Acting Issue
  • Get Unstuck Coaching  
I cannot speak highly enough about Rhonda as a coach. Before working with Rhonda I was struggling with my confidence as an actor. While working together she knows exactly what I need to focus on when I'm tripping myself up so I can get out of my own way. Through my work with Rhonda I have grown as an actor and a person. I definitely recommend Rhonda!
