Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.

Well you can start by calling me Zo! I've trained for about 10 years in Theatre. My first home of training was at the Stella Adler Studio Of Acting in NYC. At Stella Adler, I've learned the foundation and I am a 2019 graduate of the Juilliard school where I received my BFA wings. I think developing a personal relationship with you or breaking the ice before anything speaks volumes and makes everyone comfortable. We have to be comfortable in order to do the uncomfortable. Safety and confidence is what drives bold choices. Every student has different needs. My goal is to give you different ways of approaching the craft. How is today different from all other days? What do we learn from this scene? The most important thing we can change is how we rehearse. So lets dive into the script, have fun and bring your justified creativity out within the world of the play.

Private Acting Teacher

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!!
Adam K.
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.

I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

My background and career have never placed importance on speaking and looking objectively at myself, I wanted to improve that ability. Toya has been very patient and down to earth with me, as raw as I am, in helping me. After a few lessons I already feel confidence growing and enjoy her instruction.

She was patient and fun and exposed her to a variety of great monologue options. Liza has a really sweet way of making kids feel special and proud and I would highly recommend her as an acting/singing coach!"

4 Drama Techniques to Always Remember

Stars like Meryl Streep and Al Pacino make it look easy, but if you want to become a professional actor, don't expect to rely on talent alone. 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 …
