Such an amazing teacher. Andrew has a total command on his field. I feel myself lucky that my skills are nourished by such and amazing acting teacher. He sees your possible ability about which even you are not aware and make it come out as a best in you. His humbleness and giving is unique and his approach is all rare. His techniques made me learn about so many things. His different exercises made me a better learner. He shines and grooms every aspect of your talent. I definitely am is a better actor now, there are many good words I can write about him but he is a genuine acting teacher.

The best teacher ever! I appreciate Andrew taking the time to listen and teaching me things that I am not aware of. I have learned so much about acting and how to continue to improve my skills. Thank you!"

Andrewis a fantastic teacher that unlocks your true potential! Only serious actors should go to Joe, since he will not coddle you like most other acting coaches.

In just 1 class you WILL be acting in at least 3 scenes, AT LEAST. He will unlock your full potential and sometimes that means digging deep into yourself, making you learn or confront some possibly scary things about yourself.

Despite this hard working down-and-dirty nature, he is an extremely warm, kind and fun person.

His critiques are genius and he always seems to know exactly what to say to make you understand and to help you.

I cannot recommend Joe more highly, he is amazing!

"My friends and I hired Kenneth to choreograph a surprise 90's hip hop routine for a friend's wedding. When we first met him, he was very welcoming and energetic. Which made us beginners feel at ease. He incorporated the type of music and moves we wanted. He mixed the music and also made sure the choreography was in sync with the music. He's very patient and made sure we got the routine before moving onto the next steps. The fact there were 3 of us he had to teach, he was willing to work with each of our schedules. I *highly* recommend Kenneth as a choreographer. He has lots of passion for what he does and you can tell by the way he dances. We love our routine and we hope to make Kenneth proud when we finally dance at the wedding. Thank you for your patience in teaching us."

"I can't really put into words how great (and funny) Samara is. I wasn't sure if learning how to act online was going to work for me, but I can safely say after 5 Skype sessions with Samara, they have been totally worth it and more! In our lessons, I have learned about how to approach and analyze a script, what to do in cold-readings, handling nerves, how to give a memorable audition, really nifty relaxation and concentration techniques, and so much more. I always value Samara's insights not only into the craft of acting but the business aspect of it as well. Basically, she's a rockstar and I just feel lucky I stumbled upon her lesson page. Without which, I don't know if I'd have the confidence to pursue my dream of becoming a professional actor!! Thanks a billion, Samara!"

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
