Alex is not only fantastic at helping someone find the perfect rep for an audition/cabaret/book/etc., he's equally fantastic at helping you craft each song to be something more than just a standard piece. His overall knowledge of music theater and the anthology of music therein is top notch.
Alex is also a great person to turn to when you find yourself stuck in the same old habits. If something is feeling stale or you aren't sure why it isn't working, Alex's keen eye for actor crutches or cheats helps you break away from the same old traps and discover something new in every piece.
Truly a wonderful person to turn to when you're looking to turn your rep upside down!!

Last Minute Save

I needed a specific song for a last minute audition. For 15 minutes before the audition Alex played it for me and offered some ideas and different choices I could make. Not only did it help me connect with the piece but it also helped me vocally. The following day I went to an audition and booked the job with just one fifteen minute session.

I think what is most important to me, especially as a dancer, is that he provides a very comfortable environment where I'm not afraid to explore or try new things. He is also able to break it down into terms and ideas that are easy for me to understand and apply.

We are three lessons in, and I've come to understand more about acting and how I fit into it personally than I ever have even after several decades of participation. The lessons are useful and enjoyable, the homework is fair, and I think you should take advantage of the fact that you can just simply sign-up, pay a lil' money, and have access to such a great mentor/teacher!

Meisner Technique · In studio
John challenges me to drop everything I "think" I know, calls me out on my bs, and breaks me down to get to my essential me--the point where I really am present, feel, and love. On top that, his training in voice and body allow for the work to be done safely.

On a personal note, I consider John to just be a thrilling person to work with, and a mentor in my life.
Sarah M. Dallas, TX

Tap in to the students imagination and engaging the important and essential instinct €œto play.€ Emphasis on improvisation, games, risk-taking, listening and observation through individual exercises and work with another.

About Sarah

Since graduating in 2003 from The Juilliard School with a BFA in Drama, I've worked steadily as a professional actress, musician, teacher, and writer, based out of both New York City and Los Angeles. In May of this year, I relocated to Dallas, Texas to be near family, and am excited by the potential of the impressive local arts scene here.

I love teaching and consider each student a gift. Taking part in minds opening and skills developing; discovering how to connect with each individual; the moment when a student's eyes light up and say "Ohhh.. I get it... its like/when..." - these are remarkable experiences to share.

Okay, to be specific about what working with me looks like! Lessons will emphasize:
1. open, honest communication
2. curiosity
3. defining ...

I have nothing but good things to say about Sarah. I've been going to Sarah for singing lessons for a few months now and in each session I have been challenged and I have also had fun. I have gained so much confidence and I have heard significant improvement in my voice. Sarah is relaxed, well informed, exceptionally trained, and very encouraging. She made it a priority to understand what my goals were as a singer and how to best teach me so that I could reach them. Taking lessons with Sarah has been a great experience for me. She's awesome!

I've been taking singing lessons from Sarah for a while now. She graduated from Juilliard in Acting, voice and singing which were obviously a major part of her studies. She's a wonderful teacher. Not only does she know her stuff (the last singing teacher I had - his idea of teaching was "sing like me"), but, from my experience, she really gets to know her students - their strengths/areas to work on, goals, learning style - and gives lessons that directly address such. I especially liked learning the physical warm-ups (stretches) that's most helpful prior to performing. Thanks, Sarah!

Sarah coached me on countless auditions for professional theatre, television and film jobs in New York City. Her firsthand knowledge of the industry combined with her insight into voice, speech and text analysis always left me feeling confident and prepared. She is a wonderful teacher. I can't recommend her enough. If you're a beginner or a seasoned veteran, Sarah offers an expertise that will be beneficial to you. And because of her caring and gentle approach, working with her inspires confidence and is just plain fun.

Donald R. Plano, TX

Children and adults welcome. I provide acting coaching from ages 4-adult in acting for film, theatre, and techniques such as classical, Meisner, Method, and Stanislavsky.

About Donald

I have established myself as an accomplished actor and acting coach who has been teaching acting classes for over 10 years. As acting is an ongoing learning process, I audit the classes of the best coaches from NY to LA to bring those acting techniques to my students online as well as my in-studio classes. In addition to teaching online, I have taught in-studio classes at Kids International in Washington DC, Take 3 Talent and Product Management in NYC, and Page Parkes School of Acting in Dallas to name a few.

My approach to acting covers the entire theme of "Show Business". The "Show" is represented by the skill training techniques involved in my training to give an actor the skills to be the best actor. The "Business" aspect reflects the more technical ...

Morgan W. Mansfield, TX

Working on how to walk into an audition, slate, to monologues. Making you feel comfortable for an audition is the most important part to get that role in the school play or even landing a commercial! I have worked with agencies all over the Los Angeles area teaching children while they are "one site" for jobs. I will also improve speech, breathing, and the way you hold yourself together. My teaching technique is more than acting. It helps with everyday life.

About Morgan

I have performed for Radio Disney, Norwegian Cruise Line, The Young Americans, and many more well know companies. Not only do I have experience in performing, I have also taught students in Japan, Germany, all over the United States, and many other countries around the world. Making a fun and positive environment for all my students is important so they can grow into the fantastic artists they know they can be!
