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 ...

Lettie is a dedicated professional with many years of experience in her field. Her teaching style easily adapted to the level of the student and made them feel empowered and enthusiastic about their learning and capacity.

Lettie's creativity invites the student to "play" and truly discover their inner artist, and provides them with proven tools to continue their artistic growth on their own as well.

I really recommend Lettie's work.
Matt
Lettie is extremely professional and has scores of education and performance experience. Highly recommend!

Lettie is gifted, professional and respectful. Working with her on Improv, both at practice and in performance is an enriching experience. Her knowledge and skills are exemplary. Lettie knows how to collaborate with other performers and bring out the best in everyone she works with. I have learned from her just by working side by side with her.

I am a professional performer, director, and acting coach with over 35 years of experience, and I love leading you to your best work! I can prepare you for a specific audition ( with monologue, sides, or song), or I can provide material so that we can work on a broad set of acting skills and techniques. I will provide guidance, feedback, training, and industry tools, all to have you feeling great about your newly-refined work on stage. My teaching style is energetic and encouraging, and layered with the insights I have gathered from my work as a producer, director, playwright, and performer in all stage genres ....Drama, Improv Comedy, Musical Theater, Comedies, Farce, Commedia dell'Arte. Let's work!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

I coach students on their monologues so they can improve their auditions and self-tapes. I help them with monologue selection if needed, monologue breakdown, character breakdown, performance techniques, exercises, and much more. My students leave with not only an incredible monologue for auditions, but also a more in-depth understanding of acting and character work.

The theater techniques I use to teach acting and coach monologues include: Stanislavski, Meisner, Uta Hagen, and Michael Chekhov. I promote a positive and safe environment for actors to explore their character and creativity.

"Yvette has been very helpful from the beginning! I’m an older teen who was looking into acting and wanted to get good classes affordably. After contacting her we started right away and I’ve learned more than I even knew existed! Not only is she good at what she does, but she won’t waste time with unnecessary activities. She’s also amazing because she is still in this business and knows what it takes to get around! I highly recommend her for anyone looking into acting classes! Both television and theater."

Even if you're a natural performer who can cry on command and memorize lines, you'll need to learn the following fundamental drama techniques to really master the art of acting. 1. Vocal Dynamics Your lines are just words until you deliver them, but unless your voice is well-trained, they'll still fall flat or sound forced. In order to accurately port …
