I teach actors, speakers and singers how to up their performance level by completely wiping out stage fright and performance anxiety. This is a learned skill that is guaranteed to bring your performances to the highest level. I teach audition and performance preparation. What needs to be practiced a head of time before you get to your audition or performance. These preparation skills will give you the confidence to be your absolute best for all of your performances and auditions!

I teach from the beginning foundations of acting all the way to advanced help on auditions, monologues, scenes, script analysis, etc. I individualize each session based on my student's needs and goals. We work together to achieve your goals, whether it's nailing an audition, scene work, going back to the basics, anything and everything that you're struggling with as an actor. I help with performance nerves, cultivating a sense of freedom and play in my students that makes acting exciting and fun, not scary. I passionately believe that acting is a joyous and transformative artform, as well as a craft requiring practical technique. I create a safe space for my students to learn, discover, and play.

About John

I really enjoyed my lesson with John! I am a little rusty since I haven't done Shakespeare in a long time but John made me feel totally confident. He introduced me to a lot of great techniques and worked with me on the text. Highly recommend!

I take weekly lessons with Daisy and I could not be HAPPIER!!!

I started as a beginner, with no experience, and after even a few lessons with Daisy I learned SO MUCH! I now have a clear understanding of the basics of acting (what to do when I get a scene, how to dissect it, acting terms, audition tools), as well as lots of knowledge about the BUSINESS side of acting--getting an agent, joining the Union, etc.

Daisy is truly a godsend and we do not deserve her!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Are you looking to improve your tone, delivery and/or ability to control your nerves? I can assist you in this area. As vocalists, speaking is very much a part of our job. The ability to approach an audience with confidence and to keep their attention is imperative and something that we do often in performance.

About Lauren

I am a graduate of The University of The arts with a BA in music performance. The University of The Arts has allowed me to gain a reputable amount of performance and educational work. In my training at the University was able to concentrate on many styles of performance such as classical technique

Lauren was very skillful at what she does and this conveys well in the lessons with her. I learned a lot from Lauren in my time with her but I would prefer the lessons to be a little more organized. All in all a good experience, Thank you Lauren.

Lauren is the real deal. Point blank period. I initially signed up for singing lessons, but she has helped me with piano, music theory, and other skills as well. She has a much more wholesome approach for developing as an artist than simply a linear "sing these notes" type of lesson.

Lauren is a good balance of stern and silly. She has a great sense of humor, so I feel comfortable singing & playing for her (even if my skills are limited and sound like a dying horse). However, that doesn't mean you just goof around. She takes it very seriously and pushes you as a student. I couldn't recommend Lauren more.

Five stars.

"There. Is. NO. ONE. More. Passionate... This guy is a freaking genius! My son and I both take lessons from him. I feel bad that I hadn't posted a review earlier. Tyler's education history is extensive and so much fun to hear about. He was taught by Academy Award Winners, International Experts, and students of the Acting Masters: Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and even Lee Strasberg! I am so stoked to continue working with him, and I would recommend him to any one looking for a talented, passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated, patient and driven teacher. Because he is all of those things and much more.

The best part, (aside from the art)? His PRICES. I randomly asked him one day why he charged to little, especially because his agent takes a good chunk of it and he has an assistant to pay. He told me something alongg the lines of: "If I could afford to teach for free, I would. Seeing the development in the ability and heart of each student is is pay enough. I just gotta pay the bills so I can continue to even do this." Like, okay... He lives and breathes this. On average, he told me, he spends about 3-6 hours a day, just studying. He also performs and teaches on a regular basis. Like, how... Anyway, I am beyond blessed to have the chance to work with this kid. He's a great person with a huge heart and a very open mind. Anything you want to improve on as an artist, he'll make it happen!"
