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, both from theatre and film, 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!

She taught the first live class I ever attended. She’s super upbeat and encouraging. I was super nervous with it being my first class, but her positive attitude instantly helped me to feel relaxed. Will definitely work with her again in the future!

She Helps you With singing and acting, She has great presentations prepared for every class and is my favorite teacher for acting and singing!
Hunter
Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

In my acting lessons, I love catering lesson plans to each student's goals and abilities. We will learn how to break down a scene by beats, explore a character's desires and tactics, and bring aspects of students' own personalities and experiences to their characters. I love helping students prepare for auditions, film self-tapes (I can act as a reader and double-check your technical elements, too!), and choose sides and monologues for a reel. In my work as a Casting Associate, I know how to make an audition stand out and the tools needed to walk into an audition room (virtual or in-person) with confidence.

About Fiona

I'm a Casting Associate with a background as a working Actors Equity Association actor. I graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Montclair State University and have extensive training in voice, acting and dance. I've spent the past ten years performing on stages in NYC and across the United St

For insightful feedback, I always connect with Fiona. Her years of experience as a child performer who went through the rigorous application process for post-secondary education, followed by her own inspiring career as a performer, and now as someone who sits on many audition panels, she offers an informed perspective that is useful for performers of any level. The love she has for musical theatre radiates through all of her work and she brings an incredible generosity to her teaching. She is someone you can count on!!
Catherine Daly
Fiona is an exceptional teacher! She has worked with some of my younger students and not only has the knowledge of the art, but the patience and kindness to communicate it in an engaging manner. I highly recommend any class she is offering.
Samuel
While only in her 20s, Fiona is already a seasoned entertainment professional. Her career has ranged from teaching, to performing, to now sitting on the other side of the table as a casting associate, Fiona has a wide range of industry knowledge. Her passion for art gives her a keen eye to zero in on even the smallest of details. She’s helped me prep for theatre, film, television, and commercial auditions. Fiona’s direct but kind approach allowed me to feel so comfortable in the studio so I could easily discover knew choices. I can’t recommend her enough!

Nikisha is a great instructor and knows her stuff when it comes to makeup and skincare. I learned some new tips that I've been putting into practice which has elevated my makeup game! There were some scheduling conflicts which she cleared up quickly and was much appreciated. I definitely recommend reaching out to Nikisha for a makeup lesson if you haven't already!
Aisha
I had a good lesson with Nikisha, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I had most of my questions answered, she provided support before and after the lesson as well.
Kassandra Robinson
Nikisha provided makeup lessons to my 12 year old daughter once a week. She was very loving, kind, and patient with my daughter and flexible with our schedules. What I appreciate most is that she met my daughter on her skill level and then slowly built her up. Not only did she teach my daughter how to apply makeup, but she also taught her the importance of cleaning her face before and after applying makeup. My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, I signed her up for additional lessons. I highly recommend Nikisha.

How to Learn Acting by Studying Your Favorite Actors
