Character acting is, at least in my eyes, the greatest thrill of the performing arts. Being able to embody the complexities of a person or thing that seems completely different from that of yourself is the ultimate mark of a master of the craft of acting. Join me as we explore the various ranges of the human heart and mind. Create a skill set that will make you a director’s favorite actor. Learn techniques that will not only give you range, but keep you healthy and effective in whatever role you may portray.

I like to teach first from an analytical approach, but then evolve into a point where you can learn to feel in the moment as a character requires. Using proven techniques learned over the 17 years I’ve spent in the business we will prepare you to be able to handle a variety of different roles through technique practices and emotional exercises. Look no further, your path to excellence in character acting starts here!

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production C

Sheila
A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Rebecca is wonderful at helping my daughter learn better public speaking skills.

My job is to get you out of your own way. When I teach you to fiercely pursue your actions, the honest expression of your emotional life will be released. As a graduate of Yale School of Drama (MFA), as well as SUNY Purchase (BFA), I have been lucky enough to study such a wide range of techniques. Meisner, Strasberg, Hagen, Royal Shakespeare Company, and many more. Together, we can discover what blocks may be holding you back, so that you can truly discover your greatest potential as an actor. Working in all three mediums of television and film has taught me the simple adjustments for each, and I will share these with you. I am a working actor and stand up comedian, and look forward to working with you, at whatever level you may be at.

Frank is a very patient and skilled instructor. He has a vast knowledge of various acting methods and is able to tailor each session to fit the needs of the student. I would highly recommend if you are in need of a great acting coach.

I loved working with Frank on my audition for Ray Donovan. Frank is smart, funny and very concise, and a pleasure to work with! He was able to help me distill what the scenes were really about, and helped find comedy in a scene that I hadn’t yet discovered. Highly recommended! Did I mention I booked the job! Thanks Frank!

Frank is an amazing teacher - can’t recommend highly enough!

I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!

She’s awesome! I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time already

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
