We will also work on learning to read music, and most importantly work on songs that will bring out the actor in you.

My son is 16 and has been taking lessons with sandra since November of 2014. Sandra not only focuses on singing techniques to build your support and vocal strength, but also helps with understanding sheet music and acting within a musical piece. She is extremely personable and friendly. She has helped my son expand his vocal range, and she taught him vocal techniques to use to develop his voice. My son does musical theatre, and Sandra has taken a significant amount time during each lesson to help him sing the songs comfortably and understand the acting stand point in each song. She is a great teacher for him.

My daughter is 14 years old and we needed some help with an acting role for her school musical. Sandra was wonderful, in a brief time she was able to help her understand that it is important to own the role. I feel as though my daughter came a long way. My daughter did get the role that she auditioned for in her High School play and she is only a freshman. Thanks very much Sandra!

Aaron K.

Haddon Heights, NJ

I studied Stanislavski's late method of acting in my undergraduate. Everything in my method is action based and involves making specific decisions and making sure you're actually doing what you intend to do.

About aaron

I have a bachelor's degree in music from University of Miami with a minor in acting and have just finished my Master's degree in vocal performance from Texas Tech University. At Texas Tech I held my own private studio for two years. During that time I taught students of all levels in various styles ranging from classical to music theater, to rock and pop. I have helped students of advanced levels and also students who thought that they were tone deaf. I enjoy working with and getting to know all of my students. Teaching really is a great pleasure for me.

Sandra T.

Philadelphia, PA

Each actor will learn to connect emotionally and physically to their world. This will include relaxation exercises which are crucial to understanding the physical challenges of acting. We will explore emotional connections that generate from our thoughts as well as the energy of our physicality. Analyzation of script, development of character, understanding genre and the transition from theatre to film will all be primary elements.

About Sandra

I am a professional actress with a BFA from The University of the Arts in Phila. I have been teaching and coaching at The Actors Center of Phila since 2004. I have coached children on film sets, notably, Morgan Turner on the set Of HBO's Mildred Pierce as well as Catherine Chan on the set of " Safe". I am presently coaching children and adults for film and TV auditioning with management companies in NYC, West Reading, PA and Philadelphia. I also teach general American speech as well as many American and foreign accents. In 2009 I began The Outside the Box theatre company with my advanced teen
class, producing plays that tackle many teen issues such as suicide, drug use and bullying. My approach is to teach the actor not a method. I have studied Meisner, Stanislovsky, Adler etc. I teach what will best serve the actor. I approach acting from a very physical as well as personal place. I'm not always easy but I am fun and effective, if not a bit crazy.

Tyler E.

Philadelphia, PA

All of my students can expect a warm bright atmosphere and a compassionate learning environment where they are the priority. I thrive on being an inspiration to every prospective student while providing insight on the truths of the industry and the bonafide craft of acting. I have had the privilege of meeting plenty of industry professionals on the west coast and am a trained actor myself. Being the "talent" and the "business-side" will be emphasized here.

About Tyler

Hi There! My name is Tyler and my younger pupils call me Mr. Tyler. I am a Philadelphia native with a background in the Performing Arts. I have taught children ages 5+ and yep! that means adults too. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, working out, attending shows, playing video games, doing research, contemplating, shopping, teaching and of course furthering my craft. I offer great advice and always aim to make a positive impact on the life of another. I believe there is a lesson to be learned often and we could never know too much. The human mind has an unlimited capacity. Theater a
nd Film are my specialty and Music is my second love and I've directed for the stage and choir.

Whether you are preparing for a role, school play, variety show, needing a 1 on 1 session, audition or need to brush up on your skills, then I am here for you! Acting can be very therapeutic, challenging and fulfilling! Music can be very liberating and visceral. Piano is a blissful introduction to all the different flavors of music. :-)
