In this lesson I’ll help you make character choices for any upcoming show or audition. Have an audition coming up? Bring your monologue or song you’re using and let’s find the best way to make the directors feel what you’d like them to so that you can get that role! Just starting out? Let’s work on the basics so that you feel confident enough to go and audition for your first show!

She makes you feel comfortable, an abundance of information to help you get out of your shell. It's great to see someone genuinely passionate of what they do. If you are a beginner don't hesitate and book a lesson, you are in good hands. Learned so much this first lesson and can't wait to learn some more!

My daughter learned so many tips in one lesson with Molly! She did not want the lesson to end! I loved her feedback and think a lot of the information will stick with my little girl during her upcoming audition!

I have been dancing for the past 10 years, self taught. My dance style is Krump/Pop. Excelling at "hitting" "isolation" "and "ticking". Very few classes under my belt, ballet for 2 months, swing and salsa classes here and there.
Not really looking to make a lot of money, I genuinely like dancing and love teaching and being taught.

About Derrall

In my vocal, audition, and performance coaching sessions, I focus on more specific topics. I can help you prepare for a specific performance or audition, including finding and labeling sheet
music, picking appropriate pieces and cuts, and working on your performance of selected pieces. I like to focus on physical communication and stage presence as these are essential tools in your arsenal for any type of performance. I will teach you how and what to research for character and story integrity in each performance, so that you can best connect with your audience.
Coaching sessions are booked as single sessions.

About Laurlyn

We spent some time seriously considering my strengths and weaknesses. I learned to highlight my strengths, and developed my weaknesses! Most importantly, I had a sense of direction and fell back in love with the process of acting."

Although Bill has had years of experience, he shows patience and kindness as an instructor as well as skill. Don't take my word for it, try out a lesson with him!"

As a beginner improver, I am so lucky I found Christine! She has taught me so many valuable tools that have improved my scene work and my decision making. In addition, she always addresses my specific issues during each lesson and even emails me with advice and fun GIFS! (no, not "gifts", but graphic interchange formats! :D Every class is fun and lighthearted and I look forward to it each week.

My lessons are virtual, but she is still very effective at participating in scenes and even encouraged my fellow classmate to join me during our lessons. We can't say enough great things about each class!!"
