Frank was amazing with my 9 year old. Very professional and fun, with an emphasis on safe technique.
Julian N.
When I spoke with Frank on the phone, he was apologetic that there will be construction going on during the private parkour lesson in the facility. I told him I did not mind as long as his instruction was great. Well, the lesson with Frank proved to be outstanding. He had a positive energy, was very encouraging and patient, and he knew how to observe, break things down to manageable pieces, and build on student's success. My 13 year old son was also impressed with Frank and really liked the way he taught.

Such fun! This was my fifth lesson with Andrew. I have learned soooo much. I appreciate how he not only breaks down the physical movements but also breaks down the music and instruments so I better understand how it all comes together! These lessons are worth every penny!

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

I'm a freelance theater director currently working in NYC and throughout the country. I'm an acting coach, teach directing for the stage and dramaturgy/text analysis for actors, directors, and designers. I have over 15 years of teaching experience at such institutions as Williams, Yale, New School, Columbia, Fordham, and Primary Stages ESPA.

I will focus my classes on auditioning, callbacks, cold reading audition skills, grad school auditions, and text analysis and dramaturgy. I'm also available to coach and consult with aspiring theater directors and public speaking clients. I would be happy to customize my classes to each student's individual needs and goals.

I received my MFA in Directing from Yale School of Drama and my BFA in Acting from the University of the Arts.

About Jackson

As an established theater director and teacher, I am very fortunate to be working continuously in New York and across the country from New York to California and in between. Actors are a part of my daily life as I audition and collaborate with them for a living. I often have new directors as assis

Emma
Jackson is both a very practical and a wonderfully nurturing teacher, because she combines a clearheaded straightforwardness when approaching material with a real kindness and an ability to empower people to do their best work. She works in a way that is very un-precious, and feels designed to bring you closer to your own perspective and ideas, rather than to impose her own in any way. As a student of directing, a great lesson that I took from Jackson is the belief that empowering people to connect with their artistry and making them feel valued is its own fine art and is a huge part of the craft of directing, and this is something that Jackson herself really embodies as a teacher and as an artist.
Pietro
Jackson is a really great teacher. I took an acting class focusing on a modern American playwright with her, and she challenged me and my classmates to grow by honing in on what we needed to strengthen in ourselves as actors to play the scene and nail the role. Jackson emphasized listening to one another and on keeping the fun in it. I left with a better sense of myself as an actor and with a new confidence I could bring into parts I was working on and into my auditions. Jackson is an awesome acting teacher and coach. Highly recommend!
Charity
Jackson's scene study class at ESPA was the first acting class I took after moving to NYC. I couldn't have landed in a more supportive, challenging, and just plain fun classroom. Jackson pushes you to look deeper into the text and yourself to find your way to your best performance. In her class, you are safe to take risks and fail but are never allowed to get away with "good enough." In our class, we had a variety of skill and experience levels and Jackson was able to communicate with and guide each actor in an effective, respectful, and inspiring way. Jackson meets you where you are and always brings you back to the text and the emotional truth of the scene. I would happily take a class with Jackson again.

"My experience with Anthony has helped me to push myself to limits that I could have never imagined, He has given me monologues that i would never have had the courage to even attempt. From our first meeting he fully immersed himself into getting to know me as a person finding out my strength and weakness as an artiste.
He has shown me how very important it is to have technical training, that it can only enhance the natural talents that I have. He is caring, stern in the fact that he makes you work the full time you are with him. He is an incredible support system a great encourager, I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my acting career now!!"
