Private lessons will tackle character development, scene analysis and breakdown, beats, creating strong choices, as well as camera technique for film/tv and/or stage blocking if the scene is for a theater audition or performance. Classes will always be tailored to the student's needs and goals.
Learn the basics for acting in a fun way! Each lesson will be modified to fit the student's personal level, from beginner to advanced. Lessons will include information on how to audition, how to find auditions, audition preparation, acting lingo, how to choose monologues, how to create an acting resume and head shot, and so much more. We will work on your monologues or anything you would like to bring in, in addition to everything listed. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.
