Private Film Acting Teacher

Hello there!

I am a working actor with over 20 years of professional experience. Prior to moving to LA, I worked in Chicago theaters for 7 years and served as an adjunct faculty member at Cal State Fullerton for another 7 years teaching beginning acting classes. I am a member of Actors' Equity; the union of professional stage actors and I hold an MFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton. Recent stage credits include South Coast Repertory, New Swan Shakespeare Festival, Capital Stage Sacramento, Golden Thread Productions, and The Great River Shakespeare Festival.

I'm particularly adept at working with complicated and classical language, including Shakespeare. I'll help you make sense of the language in a way that is actionable and dynamic to watch. My approach is Stanislavski based, but I tend to incorporate other methods as well.

My goal is always to give my students the tools to empower themselves to create strong choices that are supported by the text. I love working with ...

I had college auditions coming up and needed to get coaching on my classical monologue. Adam's coaching was really helpful. He got me to understand the language and the meaning behind the words and how to use my express myself, physically, through the text. He helped me feel really confident going into my auditions. I can't recommend him enough!!!
Matthew
Patient, understanding and informative!

BEST. COACH. EVER!!! I am an actor who worked with Adam the first time a few years ago. I needed help with a monologue and contacted him to help. After just a few sessions Adam helped me to have an AMAZING audition that got me the part! His brilliant ideas, thoughts, and suggestions were invaluable and I still hire him from time to time to work on material with me. Do yourself a favor and hire him!!!

I needed help with a college audition and had a close deadline. Shirley was able to help me prepare and feel confident about my work. She also told me what to expect when going into the audition so I would not be nervous.
Patrick
Shirley was an exceptional instructor that gave in-depth feedback and coaching to help elevate my performance as an actor. She worked tirelessly to help elevate my performance as well as other cast mates. I look forward to working with her again.
Belinda
Shirley is amazing! She walked me through the audition process step by step. I knew what to expect, and how to conduct myself in the audition. Mostly though she was encouraging of me and my talent after our lesson I felt so empowered to keep going, and I got the job.
