The private acting lesson is designed to teach the student the tools they need to succeed as performers. Learn terminology, skills, and build confidence. Older students will focus on Audition, Scene Study, and Improvisation.
Experienced acting teacher of 12 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of method acting which was created and later named Stanislavski's System. We will work on your technique using scenes from plays, film or your original scripts. You will learn to analyze scripts, blocking and tap different emotions through exercises and drills each class. Homework will be given weekly as well. The goal is to prepare you for auditions, performances or build confidence.
I can work with you on stage presence, voice tone, facial expression, gesturing, confidence building, range, etc. I have experience working with actors for stage and film.
Michael Chekhov Technique:
Often in the process of creating a character for stage or film we get lost in the design of the role or the analysis of the text; what we have decided to do does not make its way into the actual performance. Michael Chekhov’s technique provides you the tools to bring your choices to life, allowing your work to become clear, vibrant, and powerful. From the creation of authentic emotion, to deepening objectives and intentions, to clarifying gestures and actions, Michael Chekhov’s imaginative and effective tools will inspire you towards consistent peak performance. Utilized by actors on stage or on camera, Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, and Beatrice Straight are just a few of the actors who regularly use (or used) Michael Chekhov’s Technique. From Archetypal Gesture, to the Four Brothers of Art, to Leading Center and Psychological Gesture, Chekhov's tools will be explored and applied in an adventurous, dynamic, and powerful forum.
Will help you prepare for auditions, monologues and preparing for shows.
