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.

Audio for picture is a special gift. And one of the few places you can get paid to create orchestral music any more.

If you have the passion to do this, I can show you how to set up a system to realize your dream.

Make no mistake, you need the theory and many other skills as well. But you will learn the flow and energy that is critical to making a scene come to life. And you might be the next Hans Zimmer.

An integrated approach:
Music almost always involves several skills. Below are some of the complementary skills that I can help you with.

In my Semper Method, we always address several of them at every session. For example, we record, sing and play all the time. To sing you should be able to pick out intervals at the piano, or better yet, accompany yourself and everyone needs some music theory. So it really is all one thing.

My son Liam has been Randy’s student for almost a year. Liam’s superpower is autism, and that means we work in “Liam time.” Randy is great at reading Liam and does an amazing job of helping us balance work on Liam’s music and his voice acting. Randy has taken us far, and we’re excited to see how much farther Liam can go in the next year with Randy guiding the way! I highly recommend Randy L, especially if your student faces extra challenges!

"Andrew is truly a professional!
My husband and I are both novice dancers and Andrew has made each lesson fun yet very informative. He is very easy to work with, has lots of patience and has a firm understanding of all types of dance that he teaches. I never thought my husband or I would be able to dance and use real dance moves but with Andrews help we are learning a lot and having a blast doing it. We are learning specific moves and techniques all thanks to our great instructor. I would recommend Andrew in a heartbeat."

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
