I teach some techniques you don't necessarily learn in acting school which are practical and immediately usable.
ACTING
What do you do when you get the script?
Using subtext to bring realism to your performance.
Line delivery: tricks of the trade.
AUDITION
Do you have the right monologue to fit the parts you can play?
Suggestions for a monologue(s) to fit your persona. You need more than one to fit the different genres of the play or film you are auditioning for.
How to break it down, the importance of changes.
Tactics for attacking the cold read: what to do while you're waiting in the lobby after they just handed you your "sides."
Also, refer to ACTING (above).

Keanon is a GREAT teacher/artist/musician/mentor

I've been working with Keanon for almost a year now. Aside from being an amazing vocalist himself, he does everything he can to help students reach their full potential and find their voice. He makes lessons fun while constantly keeping you challenged. There's always encouragement from him to strive to be better, which can really bring the best out of singers. Whether you're simply singing for hobby, performing for shows/auditions, or ready to record, Keanon has something to offer to any aspiring musician. He has a passion and love for music and understands it's a gift that must be shared with the world.

I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.

"Alexandra was my primary coach when I was applying to MFA Acting programs last year. She is the best! She was instrumental in my success at every step of the process: helping me to pick material, coaching me on how to highlight my unique skill set, preparing me for what to expect in the room, and even in-home coaching while I filmed a taped audition. She is insightful and clear in her instruction and the breadth of her theatrical training allows her to tailor each session to the specific needs of each client. If she hadn't already helped me get accepted to one of my top schools (where I'll be starting this fall!) I'd absolutely hire her again. I can't recommend her enough!"
