About Me

I experienced life in Hollywood attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and it shook my world in not only the craft of acting but also that passion is key in pursuing this field. Because when success in roles doesn't come your way, you are still satisfied with your choice of occupation.

Personal Experience in Theater:

Several roles played at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2003
Performed in two local improv groups 2003-2005
MP role in "The House of Blue Leaves" in 2005
Manolo Costazeula in "The Odd Couple- Female Version" in 2010
Lenny Ganz in "Rumors" in 2012

*** Lesson Details ***
Through experience in drama school and additional time spent learning the craft, I believe I have learned what it takes to teach the craft with passion. With emphasis on objectives, improv, and being in the moment, certain techniques will be employed to enhance believability.

There is no one true path to learning the craft. Every teacher is different as well as any student. And every teacher that doesn't learn from their students are well. just teachers. As any craft/skill-based action, people are all always learning regardless of your position. There is no right way or wrong way of teaching but only a deeper understanding of what is possible.

As actors, we hope to dig down deeper. To open ourselves wider. It's like a muscle. Keep exercising it and we find "muscles" we never knew we had.

There are a variety of techniques that I have been taught. These are the basics of the craft of acting.

These are not film-based nor theater-based acting. It is understanding how to respond and learning how to be in the moment.

- Theater major with scholarships.
- 1 year of dance teaching experience in ballet, lyrical, contemporary, and jazz.

*I am currently working on reserving a space for my classes to be taught - until then, I will travel to your home. I will unfortunately have limited options for classes until I can reserve this space. Thank you for understanding.*

Andrew L. Sacramento, CA

About Me

Hi, my name is Andy, and I am a Music/Composition major currently at American River College, where I have studied with jazz pianist Joe Gilman for 2 years. I have also tutored the Basic Musicianship class there for 3 semesters, where they like to call me resident "music theory nerd". You can listen to my compositions at

I also studied Creative Writing for 2 years, and won the 2008 Newsom Prize for Poetry, and have been published several times in the Poet's Corner of the Sacramento News & Review. In addition, I am a seasoned actor in live and musical theatre. Previous roles include Beadle Bamford in Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, Ezra Chater in Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, and most recently the Blind Hermit in Young Frankenstein.

My teaching style is friendly and sympathetic; my passion is to help students feel free and able to pursue outlets for their creativity. I like to boil it down to the essentials, and I believe you learn best by just DOING. Practice doesn't always make perfect--but it sure helps. :)
