I'm going to tell you the SECRET to being the quality of actor or actress that makes millions of people flock to theaters and gather in front of television sets in order to experience your work. Teachers and coaches all over the world have developed techniques and styles to give actors their best chance at being cast by directors and producers and to help them achieve their best work. What they FAIL to teach actors ( its not their fault! they were failed by their teachers before them!) IS... Well, that's where you and I come in. I PROMISE you. If you make a commitment of one month, and at least one class a week... you will learn this secret. It is not actually a secret because all the most talented actors know it. They wouldn't be able to move you the way they do if they didn't. From Tom Cruise to Meryl Streep. to Denzel Washington and Brad Pitt. They share THIS knowledge and they have built their careers and become famous stars for the way in which it allows them to shine. I spent

It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

Private Acting Teacher

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

Ellysa is extremely knowledgeable and practical - her lesson with me was amazing. As a first lesson, we went through my existing equipment and goals for writing/producing my own work, and she gave me an online review of what we discussed next steps were for me. I’m so thankful for her clear and focused guidance!

James is a wonderful film acting teacher. He taught me the importance of self-confidence and postivity. I have a new-found positive outlook on acting, thanks to James. Now I can act in anything and I know I can do it. I recommend going to James for learning about any type of acting. His stories will charm and inspire you.

Its been an awesome time learning with James! its so obvious he loves impacting his knowledge of acting and its industry to his students.. There's never a dull moment playing out characters and plotting story lines. Thanks James!!!
Jeyney
This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too.

"Zach is perhaps one of the smartest and most well rounded artists I've met. He has experience in all aspects of the business, from being an actor to a producer and to an award winning director, which makes him an unbelievable resource and teacher. I always look forward to our time together because I feel supported, heard, seen and never judged. He is always one step ahead which allows for very productive sessions. I leave our sessions feeling confident and fully prepared for whatever may come my way in auditions. I've worked with many people in this business and you do not come across people like him often. I feel incredibly grateful that I have Zach as a coach and resource. I cannot recommend him enough or give him higher praise."

"Unparalleled Singing and Acting instructor, in skill, approach, and talent.

Danielle has taught my daughter Voice and Acting, and my son Voice. In both cases, Danielle got to know my children's goals and dreams, as well as what they most needed and wanted to work on. Both of my children looked forward to their lessons immensely, knowing they would be greeted with respect, fun, challenges, and intensive attention to their progress. Danielle is herself a talented performer, and since my children had seen her sing and have heard her voice-overs on TV and radio, they knew that she took their goals as artists seriously. My daughter is now 19 and, largely thanks to Danielle's instruction and encouragement, makes her living as an actor in L.A. My son is 17 and sings and plays horn in a professionally-gigging Jazz band; he is also clarinet section leader of his high school Marching Band, and a member of the school's auditioned show choir. He has twice sung the Star Spangled Banner at his school football games as a soloist. His skill, style, and especially his confidence were honed via Danielle's tutelage. My children's specific talents and goals, as well as their overall development as performing artists flourished under Danielle's dynamic and caring instruction."

"Constructs a safe, experimental, artistic environment where she nurtures and pushes you when needed. She is an excellent instructor in meisner repetition; being able to help the student access vulnerability in places they've never experienced. Knows and practices a copious amount of acting styles and techniques. From my experience working with her as a director/acting advisor, she is keen and eager to work on the human connection between actors, accessing emotions through extreme physicalization and stepping out of comfort zones, and experimenting with a variety of text to express various stories."
