Private Acting Teacher

Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

Private Acting Teacher

Do you have an audition you need coaching for? Or are you looking to get one-on-one cold reading or script analysis lesions?

The goal of this class is to allow the student to grow and explore every aspect of the craft. Elements covered include: script analysis, story structure and conflict, proper and effective rehearsal practices, character development, media specific vocal use, power and subtlety of performance, and provocative story telling

We will cover the source of the material, the genre, the style of the writer/s, wardrobe, props, dialect, and knowledge of the entire story.

You can choose your scene or have one picked for you by me.

About Alexander

Alexander believes in the undeniable independent identity of each actor. He does not employ method, but process. Process requires attention to the details in what works for the individual actor and not what method the actor needs to adopt. His intelligent and positive script analysis, practical kno

With over 20 years of acting experience on film, television, and theater. My credits include HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street, Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots, ABC’s Castle, and many more. My lessons are in-depth, whether studying acting technique, scene study, character breakdown, or getting ready for an audition. The audition process can be daunting, but I like to look at it as a way to ply our craft and learn. Casting directors respect preparedness, so make sure you are prepared before you go in on your next one. Let’s get started!

About Chris

I began my own acting studies in NYC at The Gene Frankel Theatre. I subsequently moved to Los Angeles and quickly began building a body of work in film and TV, while continuing study at Playhouse West under Jeff Goldblum.

Super nice, informative, and easy to understand. Really excited to continue lessons!
Alison
Shelley is fantastic. She made me feel at ease right away, even though I have no prior singing experience and I was incredibly nervous. As early as my second lesson, I could already hear a difference in my voice when I listened back to the recording of our session! She really knows what she's doing and it shows. I highly recommend Shelley. In addition to being a great music teacher - which she is - she's also so pleasant to work with! She's fast to respond, very accommodating with her schedule, friendly and easygoing, and professional. I started out thinking I'd just take a few weeks' worth of lessons to get out of my comfort zone. Over a year later, I'm still here, and looking forward to every week.
Riana
Ms. Shelley is very dedicated to every one of her students. It is a pleasure working with her!

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film (Comedy, Drama, and Improv,) I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

I specialize in developing well-rounded, confident actors! I'd love to be that person for you! :)
