Great first lesson! Teresa is very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Looking forward to many more lessons to come!
Kiri
Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!
Brittany
She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

Hey there fellow actor!

I'd love to help you on this journey called Acting. Whether it's theater, film, or simply the business side of it all, I've been there and I'd be honored to help you.

A little about me: I have been acting since I was three, starting in community theatre. Then, I began pursuing my dream of acting for the screen. I started studying a lot and found myself in weekly classes. Then on a set that would later win me Best Actor and nominate me for Best Female Actor in a festival. I then went to LA (because that's what you're supposed to do, right?) and pursued my dream at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I had an agent while in LA and was going on auditions, but I wasn't liking it. So, after lots of research, I up and moved to Atlanta, GA.

The truth is, what makes me a unique teacher is that I am still growing and learning, but I have been just starting out, or not able to just get that monologue down. We are all on different stepping stones, and I ...

Private Acting Teacher

Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.
In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.
This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.
We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.
Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

Andrew is a fantastic teacher! He puts in hard work and creates a fun environment to learn
Allison
We have had a great experience with Andrew teaching our daughter piano. He works great with kids and has a wide range of teachable skills. He organizes fun events for his students that showcase their hard work. I am really pleased with our decision to enroll our daughter in his program, she has a lot of fun and has learned a lot in a short amount of time.
Brent
I can't choose a subject because Andrew teaches so many different things in his piano lessons that I would be doing him a disservice if I chose just one.

As a former piano lessons taker myself, I must admit that I had some lofty expectations for my daughter's piano lessons. On the first day of lessons for her, I knew that we were in great hands. Andrew has exceeded my expectations with every turn. And a fun and lighthearted way, and through games, activities, and fingers on the piano , Andrew helps the young learner learn the most important thing about music: it's fun! Theory is fun, composition is fun, ear training is fun, performance is fun. As a musician myself, I'd almost forgot. Andrew has helped me to remember, and is instilling these values in my daughter.

Thank you Andrew for being so awesome.

An early career teacher! Experienced with audition coaching, scene work, and Shakespeare. I primarily use the Miesner approach to acting and physicalization tools to bring out the truth in every story. I am upbeat and dedicated to working with my students at whatever level they are at, to help them achieve their potential. I believe that actors are the pioneers of the human heart, they take the deep dive for those who are not ready yet. I am the perfect teacher for both those just getting into acting to more experienced actors needing some tune up!

Constructs a safe, experimental, artistic environment where she nurtures and pushes you when needed. She is an excellent instructor in meisner repetition; being able to help the student access vulnerability in places they've never experienced. Knows and practices a copious amount of acting styles and techniques. From my experience working with her as a director/acting advisor, she is keen and eager to work on the human connection between actors, accessing emotions through extreme physicalization and stepping out of comfort zones, and experimenting with a variety of text to express various stories.

Michael was knowledgeable and provided just the kind of feedback I wanted for my solo vocal performances (I was looking for instruction on *acting* in solo vocal performance), giving me immediately useful tips for improving my next performance. It's clear that Michael has a lot to offer me. I look forward to more in the coming lessons."

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
