Really great stuff !!
Ashleigh S.
It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

The thing that separates me from the rest of the guides you will find on this subject is that my knowledge and experience comes from the Private Security field...specializing in "Undercover/plain clothed" investigations, leading to professional level proficiency in Human Behavior and Psychology.

In my brief existence on earth, somehow, all of my interests, flaws, and experiences fit together like a puzzle and have lead me to the point where I can understand Human Behavior and Psychology fluently....raising me to a life of leadership.

How did I end up directing Actors?  I was searching for a more positive expression for my knowledge while still supporting peoples life goals.  This search dropped me down a rabbit hole of research including method actors, and eventually Stanislavski's system, and the great Uta Hagen which shocked me.... until that very moment my life experiences resembled many aspects of these systems without even knowing they existed.

Since then, I have chosen ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, jazz, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive vocal training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability. I have extensive stage experience and teach my students how to have confidence while portraying a character on stage.

About Benjamin

I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, where I extensively studied the anatomy of the voice. I am th

I have been teaching and coaching acting students for almost ten years. I am also a working actor myself and graduate of The Juilliard School. My students have gone to some of the top conservatory programs and have booked Broadway shows, Television, Commercials. After working with me, whether it be on an audition or monologue, you will start to learn the skills that will take you to the next step. I am very interested in preparing students for their college auditions!

Viv
Andrea is amazing! She is my first choice anytime I have an audition. You will walk into your audition ready, and focused on the work. Love her!!
Helen
Andrea is one of the finest actors and acting coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She has this amazing ability to get people from ‘acting’ to ‘being.’ She has elicited some of my most breakthrough acting moments with her incredible presence, razor sharp specificity, and in depth script analysis.
Reece
Andrea is essential in my process: either that be an audition or in preparing a role. Her guidance has been instrumental in helping me develop a strong point of view in my work when I’ve felt lost. Her experience gives her the expert language to discuss what doesn’t work to tell a story while bringing the best out of the actor. She is a gem. I am lucky to have her as coach.

I am a professional actor in California wanting to help student's develop their craft. I focus on acting for the stage, narrowing in on character development, intention, tactics, diction, and stage presence. Student's can come to me to prepare for auditions, work monologues, and be a guide or helper through an actor's rehearsal process. I believe a once a week coaching helps students enhance their skills and stand out at auditions and perform their best on stage.

About Taylor

Some of my credits include Theatre For Children Inc.'s school tour. I spent a year on the road, performing 12 shows a week at variou

Contemporary Dance for Beginners: What Do You Need to Know?

Contemporary dance. You’ve probably seen it on famous dance television shows like So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars, but do you actually know what contemporary dance is?
