Will was extremely helpful. He went above and beyond helping me with my routine and suggestions for feeling comfortable and getting ready. I would definitely use him again if needed.
Joachim
Will has a great way of guiding the team to not only work together but dial in what's working and phase out what's not. He's patient, encouraging, and most importantly honest. It's clear he loves the form and working with others to find what works for their team.
Laura
Will and I performed and taught together for years in NYC. He is the best! He really focuses on spontaneity and supporting his partner. When you work with him, you won’t have to worry about being funny or clever. He will help you learn to improvise in your own unique way.

Whether you are just starting out in your journey as an actor, or you are interested in refining your skills with relevant and applicable concepts and methods, I will devise a program tailored specifically to your aspirations. Character development, objectives, actions, dialogue interpretation, stage movement: just to name a few of the skills we will be studying and honing. We will work on monologues and scenes to explore a variety of acting styles. And if it's Musical Theater you enjoy, we will unpack the elements in that genre, and prep you for auditions. Always, classes are predicated on fun!

Aubrey is an exceptional teacher who goes above and beyond to bring out the best in your voice.

She also is great at getting you focused not only on how you sound but also on how you move and portray yourself on stage. I have taken lessons with several other teachers on Takelessons, and Aubrey has been the best with helping me perform overall, not just hit the notes.

She's also very flexible with scheduling and was always able to accommodate my busy schedule.

I'm a working commercial actor that you see on TV. I am also an acting coach, manager, and former agent. And many of my former students are now top commercial actors, TV regulars, and film stars. I grew up in Tyler, Texas, and I have returned to work with actors all across my home state of Texas. I specialize in starting careers and teaching actors to book jobs. My technique will get you on your feet and working. You will gain a complete understanding of Hollywood business and what it takes to become successful. All acting techniques have evolved, including what we do commercially. How real can you be? Do you know how to create humor and believability?

Do you understand the role of the casting director, ad agency, set AD, and production director? I often hear from casting directors, "It's great to see when an actor gets it right." During the height of my acting studio in Los Angeles, you couldn't turn on the television without seeing one of my actors from the studio in commercials

Addison is an amazing teacher and actor, He is always true to himself and is adept at seeing potential in others he works with. I so admire him and his total work ethic. He's a perfect addition to whatever he chooses.
David Vega
The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.
