David's class was interesting, challenging, and intellectually stimulating. I left feeling both energized and pleasantly spent. He is exactly the kind of Acting Teacher that I benefited from having discussions with about "the craft." Direct, curious, and thorough. It's also a class that I believe is accessible to actors of all levels, from novice to professional!
Hilery
I hired David to work with teen and adult actors for a feature length film I directed. The impact that David had on the actors and on the success of the film have been phenomenal. He is a brilliant teacher! One of the teen actors said that he learned more from David in six lessons than he had in dozens of summer acting camps over the years. The adult actors were equally impressed. If you get a chance to work with David, I wouldn't miss it.
Daniel
David is a "one-of-a-kind" Acting Coach! I have been a professional in the industry for the last 10 years, and I attribute most of my success to David. David encouraged me to lean into my own interferences and self-consciousness in terms of acting, in order to get more comfortable with the unknown and my fears. I attribute David to my success because through this classes I was able to gain the rarest gift any acting teacher can give their student: confidence. I am a braver artist, a more present actor, and even a better person thanks to David's classes. Not only did David influence me as an actor/artist, I use his lessons every day when I teach my own Acting Classes in Chicago. I highly recommend him.

Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.

Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

The thing that separates me from the rest of the guides you will find on this subject is that my knowledge and experience comes from the Private Security field...specializing in "Undercover/plain clothed" investigations, leading to professional level proficiency in Human Behavior and Psychology.

In my brief existence on earth, somehow, all of my interests, flaws, and experiences fit together like a puzzle and have lead me to the point where I can understand Human Behavior and Psychology fluently....raising me to a life of leadership.

How did I end up directing Actors?  I was searching for a more positive expression for my knowledge while still supporting peoples life goals.  This search dropped me down a rabbit hole of research including method actors, and eventually Stanislavski's system, and the great Uta Hagen which shocked me.... until that very moment my life experiences resembled many aspects of these systems without even knowing they existed.

Since then, I have chosen ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

See Acting. I am a member of the Actors Studio and understand the precepts from their origin. write to me with specific questions and I will be pleased to enter into a dialogue. I have very strong opinions on the methods and find it often misunderstood. I am a very good teacher of the Tension-Relaxation in the Chair work as well as the Sense Memory work. I have the original list of Sense Memory exercises passed down from Lee Strasberg to the two women who I spent years studying with. This is very important work and I believe in it and understand it.

Profile_69900_pi_James%20Walsh%20plays
"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"
