Anne specializes in coaching songs.
Her approach focuses on helping you identify what is special about your particular take on a song in order to make it specific, fun, and totally unique to who you are.
Anne will help you find the phrasing and musicality in your material that not only makes it sound great, but allows you to feel completely confident and ready to go to an audition or to tackle a role.
With her vast knowledge of musical theatre repertoire and having worked across many genres, Anne is also particularly well-suited to help you refine your repertoire choices and your audition book.
Together, you can find the perfect material for you as an actor and as a person, and most importantly, songs that you really love.
Often times success in booking a role is a result of hard work and knowing how to go the extra mile. Having someone to guide you and push you in that pursuit can be invaluable in helping you find your way and your own voice.
There are so many factors in our industry that are beyond our control, but the one thing you can control is how you present yourself and how you feel about the work you are bringing into the room.

“I have known Anne for over 25 years. Her body of work as an actress and her understanding of that journey is only part of what gives her the heart and humanity to be a great teacher. More significantly, that she is so current in the ways of professional theater today, that her musicality, acting skills and taste are unparalleled and that she has an amazing proclivity for marrying actors to the perfect audition songs make her the best musical theater coach I know.”— Merri SugarmanCasting Director (Tara Rubin Casting)
“Anne is a coaching rockstar! Why? Because she has been on both sides of the table…a very accomplished Broadway & TV actress who has auditioned thousands of times and knows the highs and lows of THAT experience, as well as "The Coach" in her who has seen countless people put their creative vulnerability on the line in audition after audition. She is a positive, smart, very encouraging teacher who TELLS THE TRUTH.”— Christopher HankeActor
“Anne L. Nathan is an incisive, creative coach who helped me, with her extensive musical library, to find the perfect material for my audition. Her easy charm, knowledge, and impeccable instincts made the process easy and I would recommend her to anyone without reservation.”— Adam HellerActor
“Not only will each student receive guidance on materials most suited to their individual talents but they will leave with knowledge of acting technique and how to portray their own 'truths' - the best gift for any singer!”— Kristin Chenoweth
“There is something so refreshing about being coached by another actor. As a teacher i feel as though Anne is there with me every step of the way because she knows exactly what it's like to do what I'm doing. She is well versed in the many aspects of our growing art form, and knows exactly what works for today. Her advice and guidance is with me every time i audition. Added bonus, she will keep you laughing the entire way.”— Tom MeglioCincinnati College Conservatory of Music, Class of 2016
“Anne Nathan is one of the best students I have ever taught and directed at The Boston Conservatory. Besides an outsized talent with excellent musical ability, deep curiosity and an instinct for the theatre, she brings a unique sensibility and point of view to each performance and a powerful need to seek the truth within world of the song and in the play. She did this as a student in my musical theatre classes. She does it as a Broadway actress in a variety of roles. These are the elements that make an outstanding coach. And she does all this with humor and generosity.”— Fran CharnasProfessor, The Boston Conservatory
