I help actors personalize their characters by utilizing textual clues and establishing trust in their natural impulses.

Through a variety of acting techniques and exercises, you'll create a dynamic performance which illuminates the playwright's vision and also brings your unique gifts to the forefront.

Acting involves an incredible balance of specificity and spontaneity. In order to achieve that balance, we must prepare and conquer the many technical (physical and vocal) as well as personal (emotional and intellectual) demands we face in our careers and lives.

About Anthony Michael

I am a professional actor with credits Off-Broadway, regionally, and abroad. I received an MFA in Acting from the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University, and a BA in Theatre from Florida State University. My goal is to inspire students to

Anthony Michael is very skilled and adept at working with Shakespeare. He is patient and focused, and allowed me to find the sense of the piece together. I would highly recommend him!
Janira campos Puleo
My experience with Anthony has helped me to push myself to limits that I could have never imagined, He has given me monologues that i would never have had the courage to even attempt. From our first meeting he fully immersed himself into getting to know me as a person finding out my strength and weakness as an artiste.
He has shown me how very important it is to have technical training, that it can only enhance the natural talents that I have. He is caring, stern in the fact that he makes you work the full time you are with him. He is an incredible support system a great encourager, I'm looking forward to what the future holds for my acting career now!!

I have had the unique experience of working with Anthony Michael Martinez as both a teacher/coach and fellow teacher. He has coached me in private sessions on multiple Shakespeare monologues and contemporary pieces. He had an incredible ability to explain various acting adjustments and helps to bring the best out of the performances and performers. I always feel confident after working with Anthony, and he makes each session fun and full of energy. Similarly, as a fellow teacher, Anthony can adapt to any situation, student or class size. He is energetic, articulate, and has an incredible sense of humor with students and teachers. He is an ideal fellow teacher.

Public Speaking, Acting, Improv, and Communication Skills

"Speaking publicly was always my greatest fear until I had an opportunity to be coached by James. In just 5 one-hour lessons, my fear of public speaking was eliminated. James was able to convey that my fear of public speaking was irrational, and with several key preparation techniques I would be able to overcome this lifelong challenge. All true! Thanks James!"
--Senior ranking administrator in a private educational institution

The #1 fear of business people is addressing an audience. Effective oral communication, especially speaking in public, is a skill integral to confidence and leadership in the business world. Like any skill, it can be learned. Using breathing, stretching, and relaxation techniques from British theatre training, you will learn how to overcome stage fright and build confidence, so that you can stand in front of a group of people and convey your ideas convincingly, without fear, and become a ...

Alyssa is a wonderful teacher This was my first voice lesson ever. She was understanding, enthusiastic and very helpful in getting me started
Susan.
Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!

Welcome! As a singer and actress, I am very excited to share my passion for the performing arts. We will begin with a monologue of your choosing. If you need help finding one, I have some to start with! We will work on breathing, enunciation, projection at first, then move on to emotions and background for your character. The best performances reach their audience because when you feel it, they will feel it!
I have a bachelors in singing and have taught music and drama for over six years. If you need help preparing for an audition, you’ve come tot he right place! I have helped countless students prepare for auditions at the school where I previously taught. Or if you just want to increase your acting skills, coaching with me will be fun and effective!

I first had Mrs. White as a drama teacher, she inspired me to go after my dream of participating in my school’s musicals. I hadn’t done musicals before because I was nervous to sing in front of people, but thanks to her guidance and encouragement I tried out for my first school musical and realized how much I enjoyed performing. Mrs. White is very kind and patient, she always encouraged me, helped me to overcome my fear of singing in front of others, and helped me to improve my overall voice. I highly recommend Mrs. White if you are looking for a kind and encouraging vocal teacher.
Miriam
Mrs. White is a great teacher! My boys (ages 8 and 10 at the time of their lessons) loved taking voice and acting with her when she lived in California.

"I initially started with Darren in Orlando in 1990. Being a talent manager I wanted to understand acting better to better help my clients needs. After a few lessons I had learned so much that I required my entire client stable of about 25 people to take his class. He had to add an additional night to handle my people. In a couple weeks I saw incredible growth. In a few months I had the best acting stable in Orlando. My people were working.

Darren is one of the most talented actors and teachers I’ve ever come across. But he’s not the coach for someone who takes it lightly. He’ll work your butt off."
