Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.

We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.

Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.

This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.

Great learning process thanks!
Britney Keck
Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

Working with Actors for film is my specialty. I work with actors on an ongoing basis who are auditioning, are in preproduction or production, to make sure they are prepared and doing their best work. If you’ve never done a film or show, we will work to make sure you achieve the ability to understand what is needed to work as an actor in this medium. We work on auditions and self tapes and how to do them. I’ll work with you to discover the way only you create. I will give you the technique to discover your uniqueness and uncanny veracity for your craft and how to maintain emotional equilibrium and to have the ability to practice discipline and a work ethic. It’s also my job, as your coach, to look out for you. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues, scenes, and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to

Kathryn has helped me build my skills and confidence in presenting and recording myself on video for corporate and sales facing content. No detail too small or not discussed... in a good way... from lighting, to microphone placement, to clothing, to make-up, to how to mentally prepare before hand, to the content and the delivery. This is the beginning of what I hope to be a long term journey to continuously hone my skills. She is down to earth, real, genuine, kind and funny. Money very well invested.

My work with intermediate and advanced actors involves putting previously acquired skills and techniques, as well as the fundamentals, under sharper focus in order to render their craft more vibrant, effective and engaging. Over thirty years of experience teaching at Drama School, Conservatory and University level has enabled me to develop teaching methods that are personalized, efficient and rooted in the convictions of the best of classical as well as cutting edge actor training.

As an actor, I think it's in everyone's best interest to train with Amir. He is one of the kindest and hard working acting teachers there is. I learned so much during my time as his student bust the most important lesson he taught me was to trust myself and go into every audition/job with confidence and grace. He was able to get me out of comfort zones I didn't even know I had and to me that is a great coach...someone who is willing to get to know your strengths and weaknesses and mold them into the best tools you can use as an actor.
Katherine
Amir’s an amazing teacher and actor, and a true blue great bloke. I’m so grateful for his understanding and gentle approach to drawing out my strengths and giving me safe space to explore my weaknesses. Amir isn’t one to coddle though, and he will give very honest feedback, will get to the nuances and details of your work and knows when to push when you need it - just what I needed from my acting coach! Under his instruction I was able to find freedom in my acting, and this brought me to a whole new level.
I highly recommend Amir for anyone, beginner or seasoned actor!

I have been taking lessons for over a year with Dee. I started with mandolin and then switched to piano. Dee is very knowledgeable about both instruments and is an extremely patient and approachable teacher. I’m an older student so I really appreciate her patience and ability to challenge me at the right level. I’ve tried other teachers that were either too rigid or too unstructured and Dee is neither. I highly recommend Dee as a music instructor, she clearly has a lot of experience and knowledge about how to teach.
Mike O.
Very patient and understanding person. At my age of 62 and trying to learn the bass along with the challenges of issues brought by life, these sessions have become therapeutic in nature....

Dee was very informative and answered all my questions. She understands that myself an older student returning to music has a different approach and she is going to work with me. I am looking forward to next week.

Hello all! Acting is a passion of mine and in my teaching lessons I would like to have many facets to enable each actor to become more confident, skilled, and comfortable in their acting. Each lesson will be tailored to each specific student, but what my goals are is to introduce stage acting , film acting, audition tips, cold reading, acting while singing, adding material to your notebook for last minute auditions, and just to enhance your ability to live a life on stage or on film as it if it were reality. Thank you for your interest and I hope to work with you!
Sincerely,

Ashley has been amazing! She is easy to work with. My daughter has learned so much in a short time. She has been able to give helpful tips to increase her range while sounding effortless. I can definitely hear the growth and change in her voice. Ashley has taken her natural talent and grown it. I know it will get better each week. Ashley knows exactly what to work on to bring out the qualities of her voice. So thankful for her knowledge and guidance.

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …

Dreaming of making it big on screen or on stage, but worried you don't have the right amount of experience? Read on as teacher Matthew H. shares his advice...    While becoming an actor may seem extremely difficult in and of itself, without any experience it may even feel nearly impossible. However, what we often fail to realize is that the process alone of becoming an actor is filled with lessons that add to our overall experience and skill set. In fact, there's actually no such t …
