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 started acting when I was 6 years old at a Shakespeare Theatre in my hometown. In high school I began sharing my passion with others by teaching at Shakespeare and Theater summer camps for elementary and middle school children. More recently I taught basic theater acting in a Middle School and have also become passionate about Film and Television acting. I love to work one on one with students and create a unique curriculum tailored to each individual.

Monica has been working with my 10 year old daughter over the past year to help prepare her for musical vocal performances. My daughter is quite picky and introverted and simply LOVES her voice lessons with Monica! In addition to vocal technique and hygiene, they discuss and practice telling a story and dissect the emotions behind the song. Monica is so warm, positive, engaged, and can make anyone feel comfortable, seen, understood, and more confident in their performing ability. The hour lesson flies by for my daughter and Monica makes her feel special to boot!
Glenn F.
I took my first lesson with Monica and everything was great. I have a lot to learn, and I think she is giving me the proper foundation so that I can eventually become a decent singer.
Katelyn
My daughter loved it! She is looking forward to continuing to work with Monica.

"UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR ACTING VOICE"! As an aspiring actor, you want to look...and SOUND like a STAR! That means improving your speech and voice projection, resonance, pitch, tone and overall presentation techniques. All are covered extensively in my personal voice makeover lessons.

When you speak, are you unhappy with the sound of your voice? Is it washed out, nasal, weak, muddy, and generally in need of help? Do you drop consonants, mumble, or not properly open your jaw to make proper sounds or fear performing in public? My proven, live, teaching techniques will train your voice to sound richer, fuller, and more audience friendly in just a few lessons. I will give you the confidence to overcome your stage fright fears. We will also work hard to improve specific voice, speech problems you may be encountering in your auditions and live work.

Study is easy. I will forward to you, in advance, each lesson via email that we will work on for each session. Then, we'll ...

"I have studied with a dozen acting teachers over the years. Darren Dowler is not only the most knowledgeable acting coach I’ve ever had, but he has a talent for teaching. And he’s not just a coach. He’s a full-time performer, director and filmmaker out in the field doing it, booking the roles, and acting. He has so much real world experience to draw from it’s obvious why he’s one of the most sought after coaches in the business. You’ll learn more than one lesson from him then a whole summer with another coach. I just saw him in the movie Palau in which he plays the Reverend Billy Graham. He was amazing.

And- he’s great with kids!"
