Private Acting Teacher

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 have had a wonderful experience with Jeremy. I am completely new to acting- I am a physician and wanted to improve my public speaking skills and my "stage presence" so to speak. Jeremy has been incredibly helpful with this! He has done a great job of teaching me some basics about acting, and also tailoring the lessons to meet my goals. Also, it has been really fun! I highly recommend Jeremy as a teacher.

Private Acting Teacher

For 43 years, since 1975, I have pioneered the use of Gestalt Techniques of awareness training, dream work and work on personal relationships as a tool to supplement traditional methods of teaching performers: actors, singers, dancers. this approach interlocks especially well with the Michael Chekhov and Brechtian styles of performing.

As a performer you cannot express well actions which you cannot deal with in your own life, so filling these holes in your own functioning is half the job of releasing your artistic creativity. In this way you do not need to resort to cliches and gimmicks to fool your audience. all of you is there for real, authentic. Your search for truth is also your goal as an artist.

About Franklyn

I am a med school dropout who decided one day not to keep fighting his creativity demon. Next came 6 years of Musical Theater training at Julliard (2 years), Columbia (2years, ma degree), Indiana school of music (2 years), and one year of social work training at Pittsburgh, 1970-1980 I spent 10 yea

I worked with Franklyn from 1975-76. His Gestalt Theater workshop helped me to learn about myself, gain self-confidence, work with others, and discover and sharpen my skills.
David
Working with Franklyn is being with a true master of a field. Not only was the process well organized, done pragmatically, and attention paid to the details, but also Franklyn taught his trade as he took you along his particular Gestalt influenced method. He is well versed and highly skilled in helping actors and people reach their potential. I recommend him for his vast knowledge, dedication, and hard work in making a final product, the product is a better you! Thank you Franklyn!

I am an introvert by nature . It is hard for me some times to express my feelings openly . Franklyn helped me to open up , to trust my self more ! He showed me the way to express my self , he showed me some actin techniques , we did some weird staff like expressive body movement and other ,weird for the guy who never took acting before , but i had a great joy , and learned some wisdom from this knowledgeable and passionate Teacher ! Thank you Franklyn !

Acting with ease is mostly about really being relaxed and at peace while fulfilling a role. The best acting comes from having passion and confidence in the choices that you have made while you have prepared. The greatest obstacle? The inner critic, the inner skeptic, the inner dragon that works hard to put on the breaks and make us question ourselves and whether it is safe or not to let go. My job is to help you feel safe enough to be able to trust your creative instincts and your natural impulses. I'm more of a kind, compassionate, understanding and forgiving coach who nurtures the talent that is already in there. We all know you've got it -- who are we kidding?

I have a B.A. in Theatre from Centenary College of Louisiana, and have taught acting with the Talented Arts Program in Louisiana public schools for 6 years. I have also offered private and group lessons, camps, and workshops locally for more than 10 years. In addition to an accredited college education, I have extensively studied and performed Shakespeare and studied improvisation with several instructors and professionals in the Chicago area. (Strange combination, I know.) Former students have made appearances in national commercials, television series such as Rizzoli&Isles, national and international broadway tours, and a great run in the Broadway musical Kinky Boots.

Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.

Ben - You can't expect to be an excellent singer over night

Me - Oh yeah I can (in my mind)

(end of lesson)

Me - I'm done (I quit)!

Ben - You're getting it; it takes time and practice (learning your voice).

Six month update: I am still very much pleased with my lessons with Ben. My confidence is growing and I'm actually starting to understand how to use my voice. I may not be where I want to be Yet, but I'm moving in the right direction; it takes time and practice.

Incredibly knowledgeable and cute right to the chase. Great for any student looking to progress quickly and start singing as soon as possible.

"I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!"

An Actor's Life: Your Career Path to New York Shows

If you're an aspiring Broadway performer, the steps you take during high school play a significant role in your success on the stages of New York shows in the future. Sure, you sometimes hear stories of people who book amazing lead roles in shows after a single audition, but that’s not a realistic view of how it all happens - for most actors, at least. Ask any working Broadway performer – New York is not a city that hands you success simply because you’ve just moved there. Hard work, disc …
