Private Acting Teacher

Acting with ease is mostly about really being relaxed and at peace while fulfilling a role. The best acting comes from having passion and confidence in the choices that you have made while you have prepared. The greatest obstacle? The inner critic, the inner skeptic, the inner dragon that works hard to put on the breaks and make us question ourselves and whether it is safe or not to let go. My job is to help you feel safe enough to be able to trust your creative instincts and your natural impulses. I'm more of a kind, compassionate, understanding and forgiving coach who nurtures the talent that is already in there. We all know you've got it -- who are we kidding?

Steven really helped my get my work to "industry-level". My callback ratio is thru the roof, and I got signed with an agency after only a few months of working with him.

Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

Before I begin, you must know that there is no "one way of acting". Each person has their own methods that work for them, and they are discovered along the way. With that being said, one must find the right teacher that is the best fit for them. The Meisner Technique has been taken apart and put back together over the years, I teach it the way that he originally began it... one could also call it The Montes Method. Also, I tap into Strasbourg Technique. As a professional actor and acting coach, you have to keep training to stay on top. To teach acting is not only a pleasure for me, but it's also a must, as acting is my biggest addiction.

Online Acting Teacher

I've spent almost my entire life onstage. In fact, I appeared onstage before I was even born, as my mother performed in a play when she was pregnant with me. I was bitten by the acting bug at the ripe age of 3, and have been performing ever since.

When I was 18, I studied acting for both film and stage at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood, Ca. I later received a Bachelors degree in theatre, and have earned my Master's in Education. I've taught multiple subjects to a variety of ages, specializing in middle school and high school students, but teaching acting has always been my favorite.

I will tailor my lessons to meet your needs, whether you are preparing for an audition, taking on a new role, or simply exploring a new talent. We'll explore techniques of talking and listening, sense memory, character objectives, subtext and actions. No matter the style of show, role, or film, I can help you find the truth in your performance.

Let's act together.

About Sarah

I first began acting 31 years ago and teaching in 2008. I was bitten by the theatre bug when I was only three years old and have been performing ever since. When I'm not up on the stage, I'm usually found behind the scenes directing, writing, consulting, or coaching. At 18 I attended the presti

Many years ago, I had the pleasure of TEACHING and directing my lovely Sarah in two different community musical theatre productions: "Cinderella" and of "Huckleberry Finn". Sarah's integrity and determination for learning her speaking parts and her vocal solos truly sparked the driving energy amongst the members of the entire cast and crew. Her enthusiastic approach and bubbly personality are to this day so contagious and positively affects everyone around her, like ripples in a pond. Sarah is now a super mom and inspiring teacher as she encourages her students to achieve their greatest thespian potential. I highly recommend Sarah as an ideal teacher, drama coach and acting director.

Online Acting Teacher

I have been an actor and director for over 20 years in a number of markets, including Seattle, Austin and Los Angeles. I am currently repped by Heyman Talent Agency in Columbus, OH.

I have coached actors and those who want to become actors for 15 years. I help you develop your potential into something tangible through learning about your dreams and goals. I tailor my style to each individual, to help them achieve the heights they want to reach as a performing artist.

I have trained L.A. actors, Ohio prison actors, comedians, musicians, juveniles, groups of actors, individuals and folks who have never taken an acting class before. I use a combination of recognized acting methods in tandem with the artforms that move you, to help you develop your own unique style.

I can teach just as easily online as I can in person. I can come to you, or we can work together with an ocean between us!

About Alexandra

Acting and performance is like breathing, for me. I would not be the person I am today without it. It has been my outlet, my therapy, and my teacher. I am not expecting everyone I teach to approach it in the same way, but that's how it is for me. As an instructor, the joy and illumination I see

Careers in Acting: On Stage and Behind the Scenes

Directors, flymen, producers, actors, and even box office staff – there are so many options available to those who have a passion for the performing arts industry. All careers in acting for stage are linked by one thing: a shared love and appreciation for creating live theater. Because of the associated pressures, and long and surprisingly unsociable hours related to the industry, many people who maintain careers in acting do so because they love what they do.
