I truly appreciate everything you do for our family. You are such a blessing and you have been one of the best investments into our children’s education we have made. The world could use more people like you.

Great first lesson!!

My daughter takes guitar from Maria and I didn’t realize how much she’s progressed until we went to a friend’s recital. 8 months with Maria and my child is leaps and bounds ahead of kids who’ve been taking for 2-3 years. It’s really motivating for her to see. Maria has standards which are non-negotiable but she’s patient and truly guides the kids to success. I’m so happy with our choice as her as a teacher.

Hello there!

I am a working actor with over 20 years of professional experience. Prior to moving to LA, I worked in Chicago theaters for 7 years and served as an adjunct faculty member at Cal State Fullerton for another 7 years teaching beginning acting classes. I am a member of Actors' Equity; the union of professional stage actors and I hold an MFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton. Recent stage credits include South Coast Repertory, New Swan Shakespeare Festival, Capital Stage Sacramento, Golden Thread Productions, and The Great River Shakespeare Festival.

I'm particularly adept at working with complicated and classical language, including Shakespeare. I'll help you make sense of the language in a way that is actionable and dynamic to watch. My approach is Stanislavski based, but I tend to incorporate other methods as well.

My goal is always to give my students the tools to empower themselves to create strong choices that are supported by the text. I love working with ...

Delicate adjustments that empowered me and didn’t freak me out, both gently technical and also getting to the core of the scene at hand. Again, without demoralizing me or freaking me out. Easy to do. Trust me.

So yes! He was great! ALSO the logistical stuff that you don’t want to think about (sound/lights) were magically adjusted to perfection.

Just sayin’. He’s great.
Megan
I had college auditions coming up and needed to get coaching on my classical monologue. Adam's coaching was really helpful. He got me to understand the language and the meaning behind the words and how to use my express myself, physically, through the text. He helped me feel really confident going into my auditions. I can't recommend him enough!!!
Matthew
Patient, understanding and informative!

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am ...

I'm a working Actor from England who moved to Los Angeles. I've worked on large sets and know what it is like to book and be the lead in a movie. I want to help students broaden ideas of what acting is by sharing some of the great actors, directors and films from the past. Share how I do my work. While also talking about what it's actually like to walk on set for the first time and have to carry a film on your shoulders.

For those actors actively pursuing a career we can work on a role or self tape, talk about how to book a job and what to do if you do book one. My last two jobs including driving a car in Downtown LA with a police escort and an Oscar winning DP in the car filming me and the other being flown to Canada to play the lead in a TV Movie that aired in multiple countries around the world. All of this nothing other than I at least can share what things helped me get there and what it's like to be in that situation.

I'm very much looking forward to sharing this with ...

About Sebastian

I've played the lead in multiple projects including full feature films. If you want to get real knowledge of what it's like to be in that situation, how I got there and what my process is in acting. Then let's get to work.

In my class we will dig deep into the audition process. Auditioning is a craft in itself, it's not just about reading words off of a paper. Auditioning is about confidence and personality.

We will start with some acting/improv exercises, followed by script read throughs and then character development. We will dig deep into each scene.

We will then go into scenes and treat this like a real audition. After following audition protocol (which I will teach), I will give notes/feedback and we will work the scene one last time. We will end with a Q&A session where the students can ask questions about anything related to the business. Some examples might be: working on set, headshots, agents, etc.

I will send over age appropriate sides/scenes to each student in advance, if you have your own scene or monologue we can work that instead.

This class is going to be a BLAST and I can't wait to work with you all!

Mandi taught my daughter and her friend a couple of cheers as I wanted to see if they would be interested in trying out for their school squad soon. They loved their session so much they asked to take more lessons with Mandi and said they were excited to try out for thier squad!
Veronica
I worked with Mandi on a few scenes I had to prepare for an audition. She helped me see things in the character and writing that I would have never noticed. Our session was fun and I felt more than ready for my audition by the end of class. I will be contacting Mandi again soon so I can stay on top of my craft!

Mandi helped my daughter with her cheer and dance routine for her school try outs. My daughter had a ton of fun working with Mandi and learned a lot from her. Mandi helped her perfect her routines and gave her major pointers on her cheer and my daughter MADE THE TEAM! Thanks Mandi!

I've grown to understand myself and I've learned and done things I would never have done. And would never have been able to do.

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

"This was my first ever acting class and Donnabella made this experience feel so comforting and real. She was amazingly energetic, personable, and knowledgable about the information she shared. Donnabella was very open and receptive to providing feedback to my questions and concerns as a new actress. She even provided very helpful tips towards my future goals as well as homework for the next session. I cannot wait until the next session with Donnabella. I cannot wait to improve my acting skills, knowledge of the craft, and personal awareness over these next few weeks."
