Adam is a great teacher. He praises you for things you do properly and patiently tries to correct any mistakes. His song suggestions that would be used for practice try to highlight your voice as you apply the techniques you learned. They also sometimes take you out of your comfort zone to challenge you and expand your growth. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!

About LaMarcus T.

I've been teaching Acting for 8 years professionally and my students have gone on to be lead roles in feature films, supporting roles in feature films, and cast in stage plays. I am a very hands on teacher. I like to get into the character with the actor. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to dissect and embody a character and as time goes on you'll be able to perform two one-minute monologues for a TV/Film agent. If you already have an agent you will be coached for auditions. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Didn't show up for the first lesson and took a day to get back to me. Then when I rescheduled he cancelled the next 3 lessons. I saved money for the lessons and was very excited to work with him.

Walking into an audition room can be intimidating-- but it doesn't have to be! I have learned to love auditioning for stage and screen by uncovering discoveries in the text, embracing spontaneity in the room, and giving myself permission to breathe (it's a lot of breathing). I can't wait to help you find the same tools and help you gain the confidence to kill it every time. Auditioning is really just another chance to perform, after all!

About Becca
I grew up in Idaho, but these days I'm thrilled to have an extensive stage career as an actor in primarily Shakespeare and new work, working off-Broadway and in major regional theatres like the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. I'm a proud member of Actor's Equity, and a represented client of a top NYC agent-- both achievements I received right out of college after booking a major regional show.

Like many of my students, I grew up in a small town (mine was in Idaho) before the acting bug bit. I learned to love auditioning early, earning acceptance into Interlochen Arts Academy, the top high school performing arts boarding school in the country at age 15. After thriving there, I was accepted into a handful of top college theatre programs, ultimately choosing to study at Fordham University in New York City, where I graduated summa cum laude. S
ince then, I haven't stopped auditioning!

Now that you know I know a thing or two, here's how you'll know I'm a good fit for you:
-- You're interested in feeling more confident in auditions or onstage.
-- You're willing to take chances with me in a safe, caring environment.
-- You want a partner who will invest in your progress.
-- You're open to learning from me, and allowing me to learn from you.
-- You're trying to figure out where you fit as an actor.
-- You're ready to be surprised by yourself!

Becca is the bomb! I've done a couple of Shakespeare plays, but she taught me a lot about the text and the history of the play that I didn't know. She helped me create a subtext to the whole monologue, so I always had actions to take even without a scene partner there. I want to do a Falstaff monologue soon, and I definitely want her to help me with that, too.

Becca was great! Not only did she help with my pieces, she also spotted and corrected tension I carried in my jaw haha! After working with her, I felt more centered, grounded, and ready for my audition. Will definitely go to her again for the next round!

Becca was AWESOME! From the moment we met, I felt really comfortable with her, which is obviously really important for acting. I had a monologue I was working on, and Becca helped me get out of a rut with it. I felt super confident going to my audition afterwards, and like I had a lot of things I could take with me from the lesson to my next audition.

Angela is a real pro who knows her craft and has the patience and kindness to share it! She can quickly help you break down a scene, character, script and her comedic timing is impeccable. If you just need someone to bounce ideas off of and read lines, she's a great scene partner. We first met online but have since worked together in person, she also happens to be the sweetest person, truly honest and I now consider her a friend. Trust her and you'll be a better actor for it.

After performing in live major acting and singing showcases, music videos, and attracting the personal attention of America’s Got Talent producers, I've found my passion in helping others improve their craft by scouting & coaching kids as young as 6, teens and adults as "young" as 70 in TV Commercials, Scenes, Monologues, Improv and cold reading, and Singing Performance.

You can expect highly personalized sessions with me whether it's your first day getting started or if you've been at it a while!

About Rock
As a child and teen, I was always active in the performing arts in school. Taking major roles in many productions and performing numerous solo singing acts throughout my years prepared me for success. In my early twenties I was scouted by agents across the country for my talents in acting, singing, commercial modeling, and dancing. In addition to awards for my acting, I've written and recorded over 30 original songs for myself and other artists and have had 4 singles on iTunes. My fans stretch across 15 countries!

rformance.

I'm proud to say many of my students have been in a variety of productions and have been signed by major modeling and acting agencies in NY and LA. Working closely with a wide range of agents in the industry has given me a behind-the-scenes look into what agents are looking for in new talent which I willingly shares with all of my students and clients.
