Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.
Stella
Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Working with Actors for for film is my specialty. I work with actors on an ongoing basis who are auditioning, are in preproduction or production, to make sure they are prepared and doing their best work. If you’ve never done a film, we will work to make sure you achieve the ability to understand what is needed to work as an actor in this medium. We work on auditions and self tapes and how to do them!! The tools, knowledge and technique, however, is the same no matter what medium one wishes to act for. I coach all levels of actors. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to understand how we go about doing this thing called acting. One thing you must know about me, I am really nice. I won't crush your dreams. I will, however, make sure you attain them. I can ...

Kathryn has helped me build my skills and confidence in presenting and recording myself on video for corporate and sales facing content. No detail too small or not discussed... in a good way... from lighting, to microphone placement, to clothing, to make-up, to how to mentally prepare before hand, to the content and the delivery. This is the beginning of what I hope to be a long term journey to continuously hone my skills. She is down to earth, real, genuine, kind and funny. Money very well invested.

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces. What more can I do? What should I do differently?

We will work on material you have, or I'll send you a scene(s) from TV/FILM weekly!

We can cover Comedy, Drama, Improv, Commercials, and even the business side of things like resumes, headshots, website profiles, and representation.

Whether you're an EXPERIENCED actor looking for a refresh, or BRAND NEW; and whether you're interested in just FUN or real CAREER moves, I've got knowledge from real experience to share.

I have been in the Film and Televisions industry for 30 years. I started as a Casting Director which means I spent the majority of my time finessing Actors performances in the Audition Room. I turned my passion in the casting room into teaching professionally for the last 5 years while still Casting, Directing a Producing Film and Televisions Projects. . I have a specific teaching curriculum Call INSIDE OUT with an emphasis on the psychological and emotion state of your characters. The unique approach is utilized in my Private and Group Lessons. To delve deeper into the technique it covered in detail in my 4 week course. I feel acting should be an empowering and joyful experience that creates positive changes in your life. I want my students to reach their greatest potential and aspirations while knowing the journey is as important as the destination.

"I have been coached by acting instructors since I was a little kid and I've never worked with someone who had more understanding of the acting craft than David Tom. I've never seen an acting coach simplistically break down technique for me to understand the way David did. I am so greatful he has shared his knowledge that must have taken years to master with me."

"After years of acting training in both Undergraduate and Grad School I thought I was prepped for the professional world. Unbeknownst to me, auditioning is actually a completely different skill than acting. They are related but are in no way the same. You can actually be an incredible actor who is a terrible auditioner. This is where Joe comes in--he's spent countless hours (probably close to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000) learning the skills it takes to give not just a good, but a great and memorable audition. He can take an audition side that I'm working on and give me a completely unique take on it after seeing the script for a mere 2 minutes. His insight and creativity is uncanny, as is his ability to see holes in my game that I don't even know exist. Truthfully, every time I've had him coach me for an audition (film/TV or Theatre) I have at least gotten a callback. His ability to come up with unique and memorable ideas are enough alone to use him. I know that after he's coached me that I am nothing but prepared for what's to come. I stroll into audition rooms bursting with confidence. I cannot sing his praises enough. I feel bad for stealing his creative ideas--the ideas he comes up with for me--but hey, all the best artists steal! Use Joe!"

"This was my first ever acting class and Donnabella made this experience feel so comforting and real. She was amazingly energetic, personable, and knowledgable about the information she shared. Donnabella was very open and receptive to providing feedback to my questions and concerns as a new actress. She even provided very helpful tips towards my future goals as well as homework for the next session. I cannot wait until the next session with Donnabella. I cannot wait to improve my acting skills, knowledge of the craft, and personal awareness over these next few weeks."
