Classes with Bettina Devin
Sessions are both via the internet and in-person. The in-person sessions are conducted either in San Rafael or Los Angeles, contingent on my own personal shooting schedule. If you require me to come to your location, travel time is billed at the same rate as classes.
I can’t tell you how many times I have had to go on stage to do a show or vocal performance and just felt like my voice wasn’t fully there. I would come off stage feeling like I didn’t give my best performance, only to be flooded by people saying that they couldn’t even tell that I was sick or struggling. I credit this to the incredible techniques that Bettina Devin has taught me. From years of experience dealing with her own vocal issues, she knows better than anyone how to teach students the proper ways to sing around just about any vocal ailment in a HEALTHY way that protects your voice from further damage. These techniques are an invaluable part of my arsenal as a professional singer. – Broadway Actor, Austin Scott
Bettina is a fabulous acting educator and thespian. A San Francisco treasure. Pay attention to her and you might learn something about the craft.

She is fab – so nice, and kids love how easy she is to understand. She saved the day twice for me in the last week. Love our Bettina!

Acting and Singing Classes
My classes include training for:
Acting technique for stage, on-camera technique (commercial, t.v./film ), audition prep, comedy technique, voiceover, singing, dialects and dialect removal. Additionally I draw from my forty-five years as a working performer to help you navigate through the inner workings of the business.
I describe my technique as a blend of Meisner, Strasberg and Joan Darling channeled through my own hard earned experience over the years.
