Marissa is an excellent teacher. She has been teaching my eleven-year-old who is just starting out with voice (and was feeling very nervous). Marissa did a great job of helping her feel at ease, and working with her. She says that Marissa is always kind and friendly and she's learning a lot.

John works with students to teach and reinforce the fundamentals of and build good foundations for acting. No matter your skill level, John will use his experience as a director and a coach to work with actors towards their goals whether they be to improve craft, build repertoire, or prepare for auditions. John works within a modified form of Viewpoints Method (as well as derivative forms of Stanislavsky and Meisner) and lessons involve movement-based warm-ups, grounding exercises, work through improv, and text work/character building.

John is very experienced and helpful. More importantly, he has a calming and supportive vibe that I find really helps me stay motivated. Highly recommend!
Katy
I have worked with John as both an actor and a writer in a professional capacity. He directed me during my first foray into immersive theatre and was so terrific at breaking down concepts and offering his insight and experience while still treating the process as collaborative. I cannot recommend working with John as a student or a collaborator highly enough. Although I have not worked with him in a musical capacity, the work of his I have had the opportunity to witness is first class as a composer, lyricist, and musician. Most importantly, thanks to John, I have found my own voice as an immersive artist.

Crying on command is tricky business and like everything else, takes preparation and practice. However, there are some tips and tri …

Professional actors certainly know this, but it is advantageous for those that are active in community theater or school theater, too! Theater in recent years has exploded.
