Private Film Acting Teacher

First of all, let me just say, I love people. What really makes me happy outside of pursuing my dreams as a performer is watching other performers, make their dreams come true. I have a gift for helping others come out of their shells and be the unique individuals that they are met to be.
I specialize in building confidence in order to bring out the best of each student. I base each workshop on the student and his/her level and goals.

I tailor each class according to the strength or weaknesses of the student. I also focus on assisting students who seriously decide to pursue the industry professionally. I don't promise to make you a star but I do coach you to be prepared to become one if that is your goal.

About Yvette

I really love watching performers grow. Some students refer to me as a life coach, because after working with me, they see drastic changes in their personal and professional lives. I am very PATIENT. I believe that all things are possible if you are willing to work hard and not take it all too

My 9 y.o. is taking acting lessons online with Matt and he is AWESOME. Not everyone is gifted in both their craft AND the way they engage with kids, but Matt is, and my daughter already adores him. He is highly skilled, personable, creative in his approach, and fun. Highly recommended, Matt is a delight!

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

About Dakota

If you are seeking lessons for a child, you should know that I worked in childcare for over a decade, am an expert in child development, and have a child of my own!

Private Film Acting Teacher

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

About Rebecca

Greetings! I am super excited to be building a private and small group lesson platform at our home studio and to meet your personal acting and performing needs! I recently stepped down from 2 years of full-time drama and visual art at Lumos Arts Academy- a private school I played a role in pionee

I am a SAG-AFTRA actor who has worked steadily in Film and TV for twenty-five years. I've acted on shows like "Bloodline," "Mr. Robot," "Hostages," "Mysteries of Laura," Law & Order: SVU," "Party of Five," "Blue Bloods," "The Following" and more - as well as in films like "The Bourne Identity" and in videogames like "Madden 2020." Additionally, I have acted Off-Broadway at New World Stages and in regional productions.

My coaching clients have booked recurring roles, guest stars and co-stars, and I have worked with actors and casting directors as a reader for all of the major networks.
