What is 

Singing or playing an instrument can put us in our heads.

While making music often involves technical prowess and left-brained analysis,

acting & being in the moment requires vulnerability and right-brained artistry.

The great acting teacher Sanford Meisner said that

“thinking has no part in this process.”

Can truthful storytelling & musical finesse coexist

and could Meisner be the link?

Meisner in Music teaches artists to stay out of their heads

by trusting themselves in the moment.

It allows musicians to

  • Act on impulse rather than editing and over-thinking

  • Cease worrying about sound and have confidence in their technique

  • Trust that they are enough and focus out, not in

Endorsed by the Meisner Estate, the Meisner Institute has certified Meisner in Music as a Designated Meisner Class that upholds Sanford Meisner’s legacy of 60 years of developing this “step-by-step approach to train actors - simple, direct, and effective.”

Equitable & Inclusive

At Meisner in Music, we recognize the historical lack of representation and access within certain genres like Western classical music and musical theatre, which has disproportionately affected certain communities. To rectify this imbalance, we proudly extend a 20% discount on all our offerings through our Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Scholarship. Our aim is to ensure affordability and inclusivity for every artist drawn to this transformative journey.


Meisner work can be exposing. To help artists access emotional vulnerability while maintaining agency, we strive to consistently uphold the principles of a Trauma-Informed Approach: safety, trustworthiness and transparency, peer support, collaboration and mutuality, empowerment, voice, & choice, and cultural, historical, and gender issues. In our studio, some examples of what this looks like are student-lead coachings, asking questions more than asserting definitive answers, and remaining curious and aware rather than judgmental and catastrophizing.

"A huge priority for me after the pandemic  was to only be involved in safe spaces. MiM provided me with just that! Working on challenges that were specific to me in a way that felt safe and fun was so needed. I highly recommend bringing your voice, heart, & most authentic self to their space!"

Sami Abu Shumays
Coauthor of Inside Arabic Music

"I credit Meisner in Music for helping me develop presence and the ability (and willingness) to embrace whatever is happening in the moment. I still notice my flaws, of course - but I no longer judge myself for them. After a lifetime of musical training, this is now where I am progressing and learning the most."

Anna Laurenzo

"Meisner in Music is what every singing actor needs! It allows a singer to unlock the truths about their music, frees them from feeling focused on technique, and allows the authentic voice and message to flow through."
