There are many misconceptions on Meisner's technique. I teach directly from source materials to avoid confusion. There are many different exercises that have been misinterpreted, thus the reasoning for always returning to the source.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

I think that today there are some incredibly talented people out there who either think their story is not good enough or think they don't have enough to tell it. I'm here to tell you the truth and help you bring your ideas to the big screen.

I am an Award-Winning Filmmaker, I have been teaching Filmmaking for the past year around the world and I have built a community of other Award-Winning filmmakers whom I currently work with today. I like my students to be the best they can be and I have the ability to help them bring that forth.

Blake is super informed and very motivated. He motivates you to work more and better. He shares everything he knows and supports you anyway he can...
He learned by him self so much and helps you do the same yourself!
I recommend him for Video Production or Film Production too. Check his work, the man does a lot of different things and all of them very good.
I totally recommend him :)

Profile_189620_pi_david%20tom
"I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)"

"Sasha is a trained teacher. You can tell she knows how to TEACH dance not just dance well. She is flexible with your learning style but will present 3 methods of learning simultaneously - visually performing your moves with you, auditorally counting out loud to you, and making you repetitively perform the moves while she monitors your technic. Or, she'll let you do what you feel most comfortable with so you have the most fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn Dance at any level."

"My son has been working with Kelly for over a year. Kelly is an awesome teacher. She is always trying to come up with something new to keep my son engaged. This is not an easy task as my son has ADHD and can become easily distracted. She has given my son increased confidence and improved his acting chops. Sometimes he has off days due to his anxiety. If he is having an off day when he visits Kelly, she always manages to lift his spirits. He comes out of his lessons excited, happy, and full of life. Kelly has also made some great videos for us to share with family and friends. I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Kelly! We are lucky to have found her."

"I rate Simona very highly, both as a magician and a great teacher. She went out of her way to work with my seven year old son. It was heartening to see her teach and he be totally engrossed into learning the tricks. My son gained a lot of confidence and now goes about showing the tricks to his friends with proficiency. Simona is a quality teacher, disciplined, professional, timely and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn magic be it a child or an adult."

Audition Monologues for Kids, Teens, and Adults: Every Actor's Worst Nightmare!

Struggling to find that perfect audition monologue? It can take some time, so be prepared to be patient! Read on as Courtney P., one of our acting teachers in the Orlando area, offers her advice: Let's face it, most actors HATE monologues. They are tedious, and most of the time, it's ridiculously hard to find the right one. Monologues are, however, necessary in the entertainment Industry, and many times your monologue can make or break an audition. The process of perfecting your monologue …
