Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.
Stella
Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

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.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

I firmly believe that the ability to act well resides within every person who has the desire to act. In order to access this ability, actors need to develop a strong sense of self, increase their confidence, and rid themselves of the habitual tensions that hold them back. Therefore, I believe good actor training is personal, individualized, and focused on self discovery.

Lessons with me will focus first and foremost on discovering and honoring yourself as a person and an artist, and then on developing your relationship with the text. We can work on a specific piece or pieces (for an audition or a performance), or on plays, scenes or monologues that we choose together, to help develop you as a performer. No matter what, text we choose, we will focus on you speaking own personal truth through your performance.

I have recently been accepted into an elite graduate actor training program, and so I have had experience and success at preparing school auditions. I can help you put together ...

Working with Ryan is always a delight! He has helped me improve my confidence so much, and I feel so much more prepared for my auditions now. His method of teaching and the environment he creates in his lessons makes me feel safe to take risks with my acting in ways I never have before. Thanks for everything Ryan!

"Maria has coached me for every audition and part I have gotten for the past 5 years. She was referred to me by another one of her students. She is worth every penny. I'm moving to LA as I've just been cast as a series regular on a new ABC comedy but will be coaching with Maria online. I will be forever her student. She's a complete genius."

"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."

"My 6 year old daughter is pursuing an acting career and has been working on it for 1 year. Choosing Joe was the best find we could have come across!! Olivia won 1st place for her 2 person scene shortly after Joe started coaching her, and 8 weeks later auditioned for the main character of a Hollywood movie and was told by the director that she was "fantastic". He brings something to the table that I would not be without now that I have seen it work for her. He shows up to lessons with an actual camera and lights to imitate an audition and shows her on video how she did and what the camera sees. He is strict enough to keep me happy that progress is being made and that the time is used resourcefully, but is very kid friendly and Olivia loves working with him. He is patient too. I highly recommend him, although we'd like to be stingy with his time and keep him to ourselves!! :) He also brings actual Hollywood scripts for her to learn and work on (sides). He is truly fantastic!!"
