My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

I LOVE coaching actors, it can make the difference between being good and getting the job. Just recently, my client Eurydice El-Etr booked a recurring role in a tv series with Josh Hartnett. We worked together on her audition AND on her performance that got her ecstatic feedback from the producers and director.

I believe the best teacher is one who is also working in the field.

I have worked consistently as an actor, starring alongside Susan Sarandon in 'Ace the Case", with Billy Zane in the upcoming "Waltzing with Brando", with Ray Liotta in "Syndrome K", or being the voice of all audiobooks from Disney Pixar's "Luca", and booking roles in "Gotham" and "Red Dead Redemption II". I just wrapped shooting a big role in the upcoming "The Gods II- The Dark Side", directed by Mykel Shannon Jenkins.

I was part of the faculty of the Susan Batson Studio in New York for eight years, before moving to Los Angeles. I am an expert in audition and on-camera technique, script analysis and ...

About Luca

Hi! I believe an acting teacher should 1)LOVE doing it, have a sincere passion for helping one actor at a time break through in their own unique way 2)be a working actor, showing that those teachings bring concrete results in the real world I fulfill both of those points, and look forward to c

My Acting degree was based almost entirely on Stanislavsky's "method." If there is one avenue of the "craft" in which I call myself an expert, and only because I believe in it so devoutly as a means to finding a character, it is the Method.

I studied with the same professors that taught the founding members of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre, Dr. Jean Scharfenberg, Cal Pritner, Patrick O'Gara (formerly of Wisdom Bridge), Doug Harris, Nancy Benjamin, John Sipes... in the main.

Actors are born not bred. If I can talk you into finding something else to do with your life; I will. I I cannot, then perhaps this is the first step in to a larger world.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, wi

Very knowledgeable and personable. Able to communicate more complex concepts in an easy to understand manner.
Kariem
First off. Just want to say that we had to cancel our first session. However, I really like this guy because he had kept it real and set it straight on the reason why the session was cancel. He was very sick that day and he didn't want to be involved with the session not being at 100%. Respect! I wouldn't have wanted him not being at his best either. Takes alot of guts for a person to confess that. I really appreciated the honesty because that explains how passionate Randy is about the craft.
Second of all, when we did our first session, I had to deal with a rough technical patch of trying g to join in for the session. He had no problem helping me with this technical glitch rather than allowing TakeLessons (who I was unable to reach because of matainace issues), to handle it. He helped 5he TakeLessons team. A plus Randy! Though I had to finally use another device to finally join the session, Randy was still willing to have patience and help me with the tech problem.
Lastly, Randy brought a warm feeling to the session and yet sincere. He made me feel welcomed, which opened me up more during this session. This helped because I am uncomfortable with improv but want to get better. He understood this and gave a real honest approach. Also, he informed me that we were going to get a gist of my performance level and work from there. Furthermore, we were going to ease our way into improvement. This gave me alot more balance than other improv classes. He is even willing to give me a little homework that I can practice in prep for next week.
Randy is very encouraging and I enjoyed our first session. I'm exited for next week!

Confidence in acting is all about finding your own process, discovering the best things that work for YOU. Whether you have an audition you're working towards, a job you're preparing for, or you want to flex your acting muscle through new material, let's hash it out!

When I was cast as a supporting lead in an HBO show years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I came from a theatre background and had never been on a set before - I learned by watching and asking the actors around me who had been doing it for years. Now, after nearly a decade in this business, I've found some things that help me that can hopefully help you. This should be fun! Feel free to check out my IMDB page for a more detailed overview.

About Meg

I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied Acting and Music Theatre. I have spent nearly a decade working in theatre, TV, film, and commercials. Credits include: HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Peacock's Mr. Mercedes, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, ABC's Nashville, and FX's American Horror Story.

Meg is really smart at this stuff. She helped me tape an audition and I was very proud of the final outcome. She is so good at rooting you in the circumstances of the story, and enriches your performance with basic questions such as "What just happened right before this?", "Is it cold outside?" Sounds simple but makes all the difference, especially to those of us who have done this acting thing for a while. A seasoned actor herself, she has the natural eye of a director. Coach with Meg!!
Sarah
I was prepping an audition with Meg - she really gets what a scene needs and knows how to help you tap into that within yourself. I kept reading the scene one way and she helped me see how the scene functioned as a part of the episode (it was for a guest star) and required a slight emotional tweak ... her work with me landed me a callback. I am so grateful for her insight and for making every minute fun.
Zach B.
It honestly does not get better than Meg when it comes to acting coaches. She is a powerhouse in her own professional career and she brings all that experience to your work. She is kind, fun, encouraging, and genuinely interested in who you are as an actor/what you want out of your career. You cannot get more of an expert than Meg.

John is fantastic to work with! He gets you to ask the right questions to get to the heart of a scene and of your character. He is incredibly intuitive and drawing from his experience as an actor and a director he creates a collaborative atmosphere that helps your creativity flourish!
Becca
John is such a great coach and teacher! He coached me for my upcoming play. John created such a safe environment, asked so many thought provoking questions, challenged me, provided innovative ideas, and gave me great insight into my character development. He is extremely professional, always very prepared for our sessions, and gives very helpful feedback. He always goes above and beyond. It is very evident that he is so passionate about our work and about helping me grow. I always feel so comfortable and encouraged in our coachings. I would absolutely recommend John as an acting coach and teacher!
Megan
John recently helped me with a zoom audition. He guided me to choices that were more nuanced and more honest. I got a callback! The director loved the audition and I loved working with John. Very wise and patient.

We'll work on material of your choosing or material provided by me. We'll find your "type" (very important in the business!) and then begin working on acing those kinds of roles. I'll also teach you the business side and how to "increase your value" as an actor.

I've been acting since I was a child, and in Los Angeles for over 10 years. I'm an award-winning actor and director with a true passion for storytelling. I've been in films on Amazon Prime (Something, House of Manson) on Television on the Lifetime Network (My Crazy Ex), and in many Theatre shows(Proof, Down the Road, Savage Love).

I have a BA in Acting from The Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University, am a graduate of the two-year Meisner program at DBA studio, and have studied Audition Technique, Stanislavski, Scene Study, Improv, Perfecting Self-Tapes, and in a Master Class for years. As a filmmaker who cast, wrote, and directed the short 'There's No Word for Us', I also have experience on the other side ...

I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Need less to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."

"When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!"

"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"
