Learn how to take a role to the stage. So many classes stop short, only teaching a person the skills of an actor. Rarely do you learn to apply those skill in a practical sense. Learn what is expected of you in rehearsal, how to work with and independently of your director. Understand your relationship to your fellow actors on stage and off.
I've taught acting for 18 years privately as well as at Brooklyn College, St Frances College, Marymount Manhattan College, and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.
"Nicholas is patient, insightful, friendly, and gets
results. After working with Nicholas, I felt great
about my auditions, got two callbacks, and landed
a touring job.
I would recommend him to any actor."

"Mr. Martin-Smith has been my director, coach and
mentor in productions and the classroom. His patience,
insight and his passion excites students, and makes
them feel safe and supported enough to take risks."

*** Teaching Methods ***
I foster a safe, relaxed and engaging environment to explore truthful human behavior on stage.
The objective is 'the truth' to which end there is no one technique. Actors are encouraged to find their own tools and to draw from elements of different practices to discover a technique that works best for them as individuals.
I studied the methods of Constantin Stanislavski for acting with Sergei Pomerov of the Moscow Circus Theater. I am classically trained as well.
I work primarily as a guide to help navigate the way and to interpret ‘the signs.' I teach the lesson in the moment and address the challenges of both the beginner and the experienced actor.
My basic approach to classical work focuses primarily on the connection of the breath with the feeling on the word.
This is the foundation on which you can then build. From the ‘words’ to the ‘thoughts’ to entire ‘passages’ of text, as you work and explore, the richness of the playwright’s words comes to life. Your own unique emotional life is allowed to come through the text and you are able to fully embody the role.
*** Teaching Levels and Focuses ***
-Work With Classical Text.
-"Moment to Moment" Work.
-"Sense Memory" Work.
-In depth Classical Text Analysis.
-Connecting to the Text.

As an acting coach, I will help you develop an integrated technique where your voice will freely serve your acting intentions. I will help you foster honest and vulnerable moments in a song or monologue. I ask that you come ready and willing to explore your range of vocal ability and also, and most importantly, your range of emotional capacity and story-telling capability.
I am fresh off of the Celebrity Summit Cruise Ship performing as a lead vocalist in their production shows. Previously I have performed in the Anything Goes National Tour as the quartet tenor and a primary dancer. Before this, I had appeared in shows at Pittsburgh's prestigious theatre, The Pittsburgh CLO, most recently performing in their production of The
I love teaching all students, but in particular high school students who are aspiring to attend college as a musical theatre major, non-theatre majors who are new to singing and want a stronger technical background, or actors who are new to the musical theatre scene and are looking to take their talent to the next level. I have a strong knowledge of repertoire ranging from contemporary musical theatre to golden age to opera/operetta. I have performed in musicals, operettas, plays, and have started my own collegiate a cappella group, The Statesmen. At Penn State, I was trained to not only teach musical theatre repertoire, but to include art songs and arias as well which have their own tool in a student's growth and versatility.
Most importantly, I like to have fun in the studio. I have a very open and goofy personality and want you to feel free to be goofy as well. Dare to fail. You may learn more from your voice cracking then you might from singing a beautiful note.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!
I can help with your audition for performing arts high schools in NYC. My students have gotten into the schools of their choice.
If you have training or are a working actor, I can help take you to the next level.
I am a working actor, published playwright and award winning filmmaker. I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. Currently, I am faculty member at Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York. I teach Method Acting, Acting for Camera, Improvi
Acting is the art of bringing a character to life. I use the Lee Strasberg Method, my original exercises and a fun and serious demeanor to help actors express themselves as artists and gain the confidence and skills they need in order to book acting jobs.
My book, "The Young Actor's Handbook", is published by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books. "The Young Actor's Handbook" ignites the beginning actor's creative soul with acting exercises, acting theory, writing exercises and insight into what it means to be an actor. This is a pragmatic manual that guides and informs the young actor, beginning actor, novice acting teacher or anyone who wants to understand acting.
"Jeremy Kruse's book, "The Young Actor’s Handbook", leads the young actor on the correct path. Jeremy is an experienced acting teacher who has broken down acting in an academic way while nurturing the soul of the actor. He understands the emotional aspects of good acting. I commend Jeremy and believe he has accomplished quite a feat in writing "The Young Actors Handbook." - Vincent D'Onofrio

Furthermore, she has a strong song-writing and production background and has acted as a producer of sorts in the best way possible, challenging me to work outside of my comfort zone in order to help me package the music I've written into the best songs they could ever be.
She really knows what she is doing, is extremely personable, and I highly recommend her for anything music-related!

I had a fabulous time for the time I spent in New York studying with her.
Students will learn everything from emotional preparation to what to do if you are emotionally dried up before a big performance! Students will gain foolproof techniques so they will never feel unprepared, whether it is an audition or performance.
I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, pilots during pilot season, etc) independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students! I teach both comedic & dramatic acting and stand up comedy.
I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also bee
I can also work with the actor on the business aspect of acting, which is very important to your acting career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director?, what events/workshops should I be attending?, etc. We can go over all that plus how to get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!
I believe training is so important to a working actor & comedian so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my love of acting and comedy with you!
I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

I'm a professional writer, director, and acting coach. For many years, I worked as the assistant to 21-time Tony Award-winning Broadway director/producer Hal Prince. I have expertise in classical and contemporary dramatic literature (and musical theatre) and can help you select the piece of material that will serve you the very best in the classroom, the audition room, or on the stage. You will quickly become totally comfortable onstage and unlock new ways to bring honesty and creativity to your performances.
I teach students of all ages in several different disciplines: performing, writing, and literature. If you're interested in preparing for auditions, either for musicals or plays, I can help you select and perfect your audition material. If you want private instruction for Shakespeare, I'm your person. If you want lessons in reading, writing, or both--whether its literature, essays for class or college admissions, or your own creative writing, I'd lov

I'm a professional actor and teacher. I have an MFA in Acting and have studied with the top acting teachers in the world. I've taught acting privately for 5 years.
I've been thinking and working on Shakespeare for most of my life and have extensive experience off-Broadway and in regional theater.
I'm particularly devoted to Shakespeare, but I take a classically-based approach to performing more contemporary work as well. I work with students to examine the text very thoroughly, to understand its structure and rhetoric, and to use it to discover acting choices that are engaging and uniquely your own.
Humor is a terrific tool, even in dramatic pieces. We'll look at the text and figure out where the funny is, then bring it out. Quirky, unusual laughs a specialty.
I've worked all over the country, including
