Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.
Stella
Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed.

Great creative writing intro class if you're curious to character development and comedy! Great explanation/examples, encouraging, and includes practical exercises you can use immediately. Thanks Jeremy.

Dee is patiently teaching both my son and daughter, and fostering their love for playing music. My hat is off to her, for accomplishing an already challenging task with young kids, while doing so virtually!

I am loving working with Dee! She is so understanding and gentle with me, while still keeping things moving, and ensuring that we are making progress. After just a few lessons, I feel confident working my way around my instrument, have developed a solid practice strategy, and am already building my repertoire, thanks to her guidance. I am so excited to continue studying the mandolin with her!

As my student, you can expect a highly personalized experience. Whatever your experience, skill, or comfort level with performing is, I will work with you to make you a more present, spontaneous, and relaxed performer. Maybe you're just starting out as an actor and what some extra coaching. Maybe you've never acted before but want to give it a try. Or maybe you aren't interested in being on stage but want some advice on becoming an effective public speaker. I'm available for monologue advice, audition preparation and coaching, scene work, as well as general acting lessons or help with presentation and public speaking skills.

I believe in using what's unique about you as a person in your performance, so we'll spend time working together on how to bring out the "you" in your acting!

I believe in guiding rather than dictating, so I will always act as the guide to your discoveries rather than dictating what your performance "should" be. My background is primarily in Meisner acting work,

I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

"Donnabella is such a positive individual, she really takes the time to throughly break down every scene, helps you as the actor understand the scene and the emotions behind each line, as well as encourages you to feel confident and "do less." This is my 6th class with Donnabella and I truly feel more confident after each class. I cannot wait until next week to see what new techniques and enhancements I can add to my portfolio."

"After years of acting training in both Undergraduate and Grad School I thought I was prepped for the professional world. Unbeknownst to me, auditioning is actually a completely different skill than acting. They are related but are in no way the same. You can actually be an incredible actor who is a terrible auditioner. This is where Joe comes in--he's spent countless hours (probably close to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000) learning the skills it takes to give not just a good, but a great and memorable audition. He can take an audition side that I'm working on and give me a completely unique take on it after seeing the script for a mere 2 minutes. His insight and creativity is uncanny, as is his ability to see holes in my game that I don't even know exist. Truthfully, every time I've had him coach me for an audition (film/TV or Theatre) I have at least gotten a callback. His ability to come up with unique and memorable ideas are enough alone to use him. I know that after he's coached me that I am nothing but prepared for what's to come. I stroll into audition rooms bursting with confidence. I cannot sing his praises enough. I feel bad for stealing his creative ideas--the ideas he comes up with for me--but hey, all the best artists steal! Use Joe!"
