My job is to get you out of your own way. When I teach you to fiercely pursue your actions, the honest expression of your emotional life will be released. As a graduate of Yale School of Drama (MFA), as well as SUNY Purchase (BFA), I have been lucky enough to study such a wide range of techniques. Meisner, Strasberg, Hagen, Royal Shakespeare Company, and many more. Together, we can discover what blocks may be holding you back, so that you can truly discover your greatest potential as an actor. Working in all three mediums of television and film has taught me the simple adjustments for each, and I will share these with you. I am a working actor and stand up comedian, and look forward to working with you, at whatever level you may be at.

Frank is a very patient and skilled instructor. He has a vast knowledge of various acting methods and is able to tailor each session to fit the needs of the student. I would highly recommend if you are in need of a great acting coach.

I loved working with Frank on my audition for Ray Donovan. Frank is smart, funny and very concise, and a pleasure to work with! He was able to help me distill what the scenes were really about, and helped find comedy in a scene that I hadn’t yet discovered. Highly recommended! Did I mention I booked the job! Thanks Frank!

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

Shauna is an excellent teacher. She really focuses on proper technique and breathing to build a foundation before singing. I already felt and heard a huge difference in just four lessons!
Emma R.
Shauna is a Goddess of the Voice ! She offers years of voice experience in both singing and drama. She begins with simple yet very effective techniques to get the best out of your voice, and as you are ready she will offer more specific techniques depending on what you need as an individual. Shauna has the ability to see where you are blocked and to see your potential. This is so much more than a singing lesson.

Super. Shauna made it a fun, zero anxiety, beginning.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Its been an awesome time learning with James! its so obvious he loves impacting his knowledge of acting and its industry to his students.. There's never a dull moment playing out characters and plotting story lines. Thanks James!!!
Jeyney
This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too.

"When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!"

"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"
