I’m just a beginner. I appreciate how patient and merciful Patrick as I try to work my way past mistakes and he’s encouraging. He explains things clearly and thanks to his lessons and guidance I’m already making a little progress.
Abdulaziz S.
Capable, courteous, and very well versed in his field. Patrick's flexible schedule made it possible for us to cram for an upcoming test, on short notice.
Conveniently, he's preparing to teach a university cpurse on the same subject matter.

I have taught and directed for 30 years in NY and DC. From lesson 1, students engage with a dynamic approach to acting through Meisner-based improv. During the 1st 12 weeks, we go from basic truthful acting to dynamic scene work, followed by 12 weeks of in-depth scene study, then extensive character training and in-depth film and audition technique. My students are successful in film, theater, commercials and TV in DC, NY and LA.

I teach some techniques you don't necessarily learn in acting school which are practical and immediately usable.
ACTING
What do you do when you get the script?
Using subtext to bring realism to your performance.
Line delivery: tricks of the trade.
AUDITION
Do you have the right monologue to fit the parts you can play?
Suggestions for a monologue(s) to fit your persona. You need more than one to fit the different genres of the play or film you are auditioning for.
How to break it down, the importance of changes.
Tactics for attacking the cold read: what to do while you're waiting in the lobby after they just handed you your "sides."
Also, refer to ACTING (above).
DIALECT
Double your chances to be cast by having a variety in your bag-o-tricks.
British Receive Pronunciation: consider the number of plays written by Brits, and then listen all the Americans doing RP in films. Other: Irish, Scots, Cockney, and Romance languages.
