Learn how to take a role to the stage. So many classes stop short, only teaching a person the skills of an actor. Rarely do you learn to apply those skill in a practical sense. Learn what is expected of you in rehearsal, how to work with and independently of your director. Understand your relationship to your fellow actors on stage and off.

Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career.

I was searching for a coach for my daughter who just loves acting and musical theater and fortunately for us we found Mia here at “takelessons”
This is a whole new world for us as I don’t know anything about this industry so I really didn’t know how to begin to help my daughter pursue her passion
I read Mia’s bio and I knew immediately that she would be a perfect fit for my daughter
Lucky for us she was less than an hour away so I signed my daughter up for lessons not really sure what to expect
My daughter is a senior in high school and just loves acting. She was involved in the plays at school but she had no experience singing and wanted to try
Mia has the experience in musical theater and she is an excellent teacher. She is very patient and genuinely cares about her students
My daughter has grown so much in the short time that she has worked with Mia
She recently auditioned and was accepted to the college she was hoping to attend
Working with Mia gave her the skills and the confidence to be able to accomplish this goal
I can’t say enough about Mia!

He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.

David was very personable and really helped get my child to open up and she enjoyed her first lesson more than words can describe. I had reservations about the online platform for teaching, but I was very wrong! I highly recommend David as an acting teacher and I am looking forward to watching my daughter grow!

David is amazing! I came to him as a beginner in January, and within a few months he introduced me to methods of acting, taught me the business side, developed monologue & scene work, AND he helped me find, pick, and breakdown two monologues for my school auditions. (I got into all three schools and was given an audition based scholarship for one - so yeah, he’s pretty good)

He’s fun, flexible, and genuinely cares about his students’ success. Super happy with my decision :)

Frank is an extremely knowledgable, open, and approachable teacher! He helps you discover your truth in a piece without imposing any preconceived notions about what is "good". I always feel comfortable asking any questions with Frank. Our conversations would range freely from artistic and creative choices to the business of acting. I believe his friendly and open approach is important for creative discovery while working on your craft with a teacher in a nurturing and safe environment! I also like how he has a very modern approach to teaching with classical training in mind. Overall, Frank will challenge you, bring out the truth in you, and help you work through all of the questions you have!
