Private Film Acting Teacher

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working actors! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

She is truly excellent! Guided me through my audition and her input was very valuable. She is also very personable and reliable.
David
Our first lesson was productive. I'm looking forward to learning!
Todd B.
My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

Private Film Acting Teacher

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.
Clara
Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

Jordan worked with me and my dad separately for months to choreograph and mix the best father daughter dance anyone has ever seen.

I’ve made a life for myself in the creative fields, and I’d like the opportunity to work with you!
I’m an award-winning actor and have Broadway, off-Broadway, Television, Film credits. I am also a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated Director, and a Producer. Throughout my career, I have always been a teacher, and have helped develop, and nurture the careers of countless young actors and professionals with practical tools to make them better! As a young actor, I was lucky to be trained by an incredible mentor for many years, he instilled in me a deep respect for the art form, and as it should be I impart that knowledge to everyone I teach. I will teach you to be the best actor you can be, that’s a guarantee.
In Los Angeles I coach professional actors, most recently the female lead In Will Smiths Bad Boys III, as well as one of the male principals in the Mark Walberg Film Patriots Day. My process is simple, and yet through. Script analysis, so you know exactly what the material ...

About Carlo

From television - film, to voice over-work, and solo performance to large ensemble theater productions, both nationally and internationally... I have carved a 30-year career for myself with my acting. And through all of it, I have been a teacher. I LOVE acting, and the theater has taught me so much

Paige
Carlo is an amazing actor and teacher. He teaches you to commit 1000%, and he is always invested in you as a coach/director. No matter what you’re working on in your acting, he will guide you to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of, always with a great sense of humor. I can’t recommend him enough!
Charles Burks
Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools of acting which can be very overwhelming into simple and manageable steps. He has a deep respect for the art form and a practical no-nonsense way to help you find the truth in your acting while finding a way to make it dynamic, and help you stand out. I always recommend him, and will continue to do so! His teaching has employed many actors over the least 10+ years
Benjamin
Carlo is truly WOW! His classes are not only deeply insightful, but pure entertainment. He has become my acting mentor. He has changed the way that I approach acting and I owe much of my success to him.

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.
