You'll learn how to control and focus your nerves so they serve you and not strangle your talent. You'll learn how to connect and open up your emotional life, trust your instincts and gain confidence in performance. Having coached actors for many years, technique and performance are two of my specialities. You'll learn Method Exercises such as emotional memory and sense memory and the basics of Stanislavski's Method enabling you to bring life to any script. You will learn how to let go of non-productive habits that impede your creative process and how to increase use your vocal and physical expressiveness. You will learn exercises and insights that will increase your ACTOR TOOLBOX so you are equipped to face rehearsals and performances. I teach many styles of acting and have been teaching acting for over 25 years. I am the artistic director of Voice Theatre and have directed over 40 productions on 4 continents. Check out some of the videos! In America I have taught acting at; New York University, Stella Adler Studio, Williams College, Bowdoin College the T. Schreiber Studio and in the UK at; The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Middlesex University and in London's West End at the Drill Hall Studio.
