Andrew W.
Wonderful experience. I think that I’ll be able to improve with him by my side :-)
Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.

My lessons will be a fun, focused exploration of your creative impulses - designed to enhance the range of disciplines related to: stage presence, exploring your unique point of view, and basic acting techniques that will improve delivery technique and potential character/role play options. My background as a sketch comedy performer and playwright will also facilitate the development of new (writing) material, along with exploring useful storytelling techniques, and alternative marketing considerations.

If you need acting lessons he’s definitely the way to go, I’ve never had lessons before but he was able get more in depth with what I know while also adding on to it. Definitely recommend.

Kent has the ability to do or teach drama, comedy and improvisation. He has wisdom, talent, intelligence and integrity. I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

I have been performing since I was 10 years old and since I started professionally at 14, I've toured in over 15 different countries around the world and done arena tours and festivals. I now have over 150,000 followers online and have performed for millions on TV.

Performance training is extremely important for a singer, even the most experienced artists have coaches their entire lives. I've been teaching young people to sing and perform since 2010 and I'm very keen to continue to see them all grow as artists! My methods vary from person to person as I like to find out their individual goals and go from there, but I usually take the first lesson to get to know them and find out their strengths and weaknesses, and work on a lesson plan that helps them as well as having fun.

I also teach about the business side of performing, how to book gigs and how to build your personal brand. I help students put together shows, with everything from costumes to music to sound systems and ...

Not everyone wants to learn how to sing, speaking and voice projection are valuable tools for actors, television personalities, lecturers, and professors. Speaking is a lot like singing and I use some of the same exercises to help teach proper support to avoid vocal damage and tiring the voice.

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"

He's teaching me some of Michael Jackson's dance choreographies and the way he teaches makes them super simple to learn. He really takes the time to break down every move, making the steps really easy to follow. He is also very patient, gives good feedback to reflect upon, and is just always in a great mood! Already in my short time working with Kenneth, I've learned a lot and I definitely recommend working with him! :)"

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …
