About Joshua
Joshua graduated from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Judith Blazer’s 2005/2007 company of the Artist’s Crossing.

A diverse, singing actor, a few of Joshua’s performance credits include roles in The Trojan Women, Godspell, Burn This, Comedy of Errors, Children of Eden, Othello, Show Boat, Sunday in the Park with George, The Chosen, Sweeney Todd..., and The Laramie Project to name a few. He most recently closed the Broadway revival of Les Miserables having moved from Washington, DC to join the company. He can be seen in the upcoming HBO movie about Joe Paterno starring Al Pacino.

He was the co-founder and Artistic Director of the Helen Hayes Award winning theatre company, No Rules Theatre Company, in Washington, DC and Winston-Salem, NC making it the first e
ver dual city theatre company. During his 6 years with NRTC, he produced and often directed several award winning premieres and created outreach programs for the Deaf/Hard of Hearing and those that theatre is often unattainable to.

Having been most prompted with questions about running a business as an artist, he created Artist’s Strategy to help individuals develop personalized, strategic business plans to see their goals come to fruition.

*** Specialties ***
I only work on a flex schedule with my students, so when booking lessons- rather than selecting a specific day and time for lessons, we schedule each lesson from week to week as we go. I have lots of open hours for teaching, though they are not reflected on my calendar, as my schedule tends to fluctuate.

He is very detailed in getting to know what makes you what you are and where you come from. There is an established unconditional comfortability and confidence that he brings when talking to about your history and future goals, and unquestionable intrigue of interest that helps him figure out what it is you want out of a lesson, critique, or and experience.
Overall he is very involved in actually helping you developed yourself and your craft towards what ever direction you wish to take it. Highly recommend one of his lessons and experience as a mentor

Singing is the joy I share as a performer and as a teacher. Anyone can learn to sing, and do it on a superior level. It takes desire and the willingness to practice the skills necessary until the goal is achieved.

Students will learn how to avoid the most common singing mistakes that prevent singers from producing a clean and professional vocal tone.
For the purpose of voice projection, students will learn to use the diaphragm, the muscles beneath the ribcage;
how to use emotions, enunciation, and clarity.
Students will learn to sing a favorite song with the focus on elements of singing.
Each lesson to begin with a brief review of previous.

I honestly don't know where to begin. Sharon West has helped me in so many ways! Not just vocally but in all aspects of performing and in life. I was a 13 year old little girl when I met Sharon for the first time. I immediately knew she was the person that was going to help me achieve my goals. I don't know how I got so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing, caring and loving vocal coach but I was totally blessed! Thank you, Sharon for all that you have done for me. Love you lots Sharon

When my daughter was younger, she would sing in her room, the shower or anywhere else she felt comfortable. She was very shy but loved to sing. When she was 13 years old, she lost her grandfather. This was devastating to her and the rest of our family. After the loss, she decided she wanted to make singing a part of her life. Not being musically inclined myself, I didn't know where to turn. Lucky for us, we stumbled upon Sharon West! For the next 6 years, Sharon worked with my daughter weekly teaching her so much more than just music. She guided her on all aspects of performance from singing to entertaining her audience. Sharon West was a huge part of our lives and we could never thank her enough. My daughter now performs in front of thousands and you would never have known she was every a shy, quit little girls. Sharon is by far, the best vocal/performance coach. Love and Miss you Sharon

I took lessons with Sharon weekly from the age of 14 until I was about 17 years old. Still to this day (I'm almost 21), I remember the tips she gave me about singing. Sharon is such a wonderful person that I've had the privilege of getting to know. She is very knowledgeable about the professional business and about how to be the best singer you can be. She definitely changed my voice for the better. As a student at Emerson College, I'm constantly performing, Sharon's lessons always ring true for me.

Kyla was awesome. She helped me prepare for a role I had in a play. She taught each lesson with care and was always prepared. She researched my character before the lesson to understand ways to help me. She helped me decode each scene for maximum effect. Kyla was committed to helping me with my role and for that I am grateful. I received many accolades after the show. Her encouraging words, bright, positive, energetic attitude and great advice helped me tremendously.

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca
I have worked professionally as a singer and actor for over twelve years, having performed on Broadway in Lincoln Center's Tony-winning Revival of "South Pacific" with Paulo Szot, Laura Osnes, and Danny Burstein and toured the country with Rob McClure and Anika Larson in the First National Tour of "Avenue Q." I have an MFA in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design, graduated summa cum laude, and was the only female recipient of the Presidential Scholarship for Vocal Performance. My BA is in Arts and Education from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. I'm currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

Over 90% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

Walking into an audition room can be intimidating-- but it doesn't have to be! I have learned to love auditioning for stage and screen by uncovering discoveries in the text, embracing spontaneity in the room, and giving myself permission to breathe (it's a lot of breathing). I can't wait to help you find the same tools and help you gain the confidence to kill it every time. Auditioning is really just another chance to perform, after all!

About Becca
I grew up in Idaho, but these days I'm thrilled to have an extensive stage career as an actor in primarily Shakespeare and new work, working off-Broadway and in major regional theatres like the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. I'm a proud member of Actor's Equity, and a represented client of a top NYC agent-- both achievements I received right out of college after booking a major regional show.

Like many of my students, I grew up in a small town (mine was in Idaho) before the acting bug bit. I learned to love auditioning early, earning acceptance into Interlochen Arts Academy, the top high school performing arts boarding school in the country at age 15. After thriving there, I was accepted into a handful of top college theatre programs, ultimately choosing to study at Fordham University in New York City, where I graduated summa cum laude. S
ince then, I haven't stopped auditioning!

Now that you know I know a thing or two, here's how you'll know I'm a good fit for you:
-- You're interested in feeling more confident in auditions or onstage.
-- You're willing to take chances with me in a safe, caring environment.
-- You want a partner who will invest in your progress.
-- You're open to learning from me, and allowing me to learn from you.
-- You're trying to figure out where you fit as an actor.
-- You're ready to be surprised by yourself!

Becca is the bomb! I've done a couple of Shakespeare plays, but she taught me a lot about the text and the history of the play that I didn't know. She helped me create a subtext to the whole monologue, so I always had actions to take even without a scene partner there. I want to do a Falstaff monologue soon, and I definitely want her to help me with that, too.

Let me help you act truthfully and passionately! I have studied many acting methods, but my specialty is the Meisner technique. Meisner helps actors connect with the reality of the scene, and to live truthfully in the moment. I received my M.F.A. from a Meisner school, and I have coached many students in scene work and monologues using this technique. I combine this with the other techniques I have studied into coaching that is unique and tailor-made for you. I believe acting should be a joyful and enlightening experience.

About Jed
I'm an actor, teacher, singer, and voice over artist. I have appeared in plays, TV shows, and national commercials. I love teaching, directing, and coaching actors of all ages. I believe that everyone can and should have at least a taste of acting on stage. It improves our confidence and empathy.
My alma maters are Muhlenberg College (B.A.) and Florida State University (M.F.A.) When I'm not acting, I can be found singing in professional choirs, including the Scarborough Presbyterian Church and the New York Holiday Choristers. I also teach regularly at the Hackley School. My favorite acting class lately is the one I teach inside a medium security prison.

Jed, is an AMAZING acting instructor. I was working on a project and I only had two weeks to prepare for it. I hadn’t acted since I was 19 so naturally I was nervous. From my first meeting with Jed I knew I had made the right choice. He began to teach me the foundations of the Meisner method. He critiqued me every step of the way and his feedback was invaluable. When I stepped on set on 2/7/18 I had become the character. I felt confident and ready to deliver my lines. I can honestly say that I owe it all to Jed. My performance that day was because of all he did to help me prepare. So you’re probably wondering how I did... Everyone was truly impressed with my acting abilities and I nailed the role! Thank you Jed for helping me transform into an actor in just 5 lessons!!! If you are looking for an Amazing acting instructor who can help you meet your goals hire Jed! You will thank me later!

I’ve been an actor/ director for 40 years and have tutored and directed beginners as well as actors attempting to market themselves.
Learning the craft is only half the battle. Marketing yourself and getting up and running are extremely important. The biggest obstacle is the audition prep, the cold reading.
While in LA I studied with two of the best in the business, Stella Adler for scene study and Robert Thompson for cold reading audition scripts.
Some of my credits can be found on IMDB, a site showing actors credits.
I’m from Cleveland Ohio where I began my career in the theater and commercials.
Moved to LA in 1980 where I reoccurred on General Hospital and Days Of Our Lives.
Moved to NY in 1991 and doing theatre TV and film.
I’ll work with you for 1 or as many sessions as you feel comfortable with. And I’ll be sure to advise you depending on how far you want to go. For instance, if your just interested in doing background/ extra work , you’ll just need a lesson or 2.

About Josh
Hi guys, I’m Josh Mowery from Cleveland Ohio and began my acting career st the Cleveland Rep at the insistence of my local talent agent David Lee Models and talent.
I discovered very quickly that this was a business I was meant for. After performing in a few theatrical productions, I was offered a directing opportunity in an Inge play called Picnic. Quite a task for a first time director since the cast involved 13 actors.
I learned very quickly that the story is the main focus, which means no actor is bigger than another. The ensemble is what’s important.
Among my many points for an actor are listening and focus.
I like to cut through all the BS and concentrate on what’s really important. Less is always more. Your first lesson as an actor.
I’ve directed an tutored many actors along the way including my son an
d daughter who are now proud members of The Screen Actors Guild.
I’m the oldest of 7 kids and we all still love each other. Which should say a lot.
I hope to hear from you. You won’t be disappointed. I wish you all great success and just remember, follow your dream no matter what. Life is to short.
