I found Zach through 'take lessons' after my daughter had a few years with an intense classical pianist. I want my daughter to have fun and appreciate music and not feel the intense pressure she was feeling with our previous instructor. Zach was the perfect choice. My daughter loves her lessons. Zach does take time off for his professional endevors. Good for him. He has always let us know and connected with us when he returns.

I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!

Shakespeare should be joyful and liberating, but too often training makes it feel tedious. My experience acting at Shakespeare's Globe in London and around the US and training with many of the world's greatest Shakespeare coaches and academics, from Patsy Rodenburg to David Crystal, gives me a special insight into accessing the humanity of Shakespeare's work. Together we will find your personal way into the plays, to make them uniquely yours and delightfully fresh, clear, and human.

About Montgomery
In my years as a professional actor, playwright, filmmaker, and producer, I have extensive experience developing new work and young artists. I began my professional acting career at 8 years old, and since then have performed all over the world, from Shakespeare's Globe in London to Fort Worth, Texas, in world premieres and classics. I was nominated for Best Featured Actor and produced a play that won best New Short Script at the New York IT Awards; received a 2013 Dallas/Fort Worth Critics Forum Award for Best Actor; had plays developed at Kitchen Dog Theatre, Metropolitan Playhouse, and the Aviary, as well as semi-finalists at the Eugene O'Neill New Play Conference and Primary Stages's ESPA Drills New Play series. I have taught with the World Shakespeare Conference, Passion in Practice (in London and New York), Dallas Children's Theatre,
Atlantic Theater Acting School, among others, and coached actors who have been admitted into institutions including Julliard and NYU Tisch. My experience allows me experience, passion, and a keen eye for finding what will make you stand out in a way in your own unique way. We will unlock free, organic, and delightfully spontaneous work while giving you the skills to keep your preparation extensive and rigorous.

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
My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

Have you always had that itch that makes you stay up late a night dreaming about what your life could be if you followed your dreams? Is your child overly dramatic and they need a creative outlet? No fear, Valeka is here. I'm a professional broadway, tv and film actress. I have over 10 years of experience in teaching acting and I want to teach you how to be comfortable in your skin and follow your dreams!

About Valeka
Affectionately known as “V” critically acclaimed artist Valeka is a graduate of the prestigious University of Washington’s Professional Actor Training Program (PATP). While obtaining her MFA in Acting, Valeka began her professional career with roles in many award-winning shorts and independent features including "Attachments," and "So Many Options" among others.

Adept in theater, film, acting, coaching, writing, and producing, Valeka is an artist with some serious promise. She stars as Eileen in the film "The Runaways," working with award winning cinematographer, Mike Wilson. In addition to being a Jet Beauty of the Week, Valeka is the current DC Co-Captain of Ava Duverney’s distribution company ARRAY. Additionally, her documentary film “Non-Critical” premiered at Cannes in the Short Film Documentary Corner, and it received the 2015 J
ury Award.

Previous credits include a host of theater roles, notably the role of Nina in acclaimed playwright Dominique Morisseau's "Sunset Baby." Broadway world stated "Playing the role of Nina is Valeka who is astonishing. I predict a great future is ahead of her. One gets to see her transformation from the hardened criminal to that of a young woman who has just lost her mother, when she strips herself from her make-up, wig, and clothes into a bathrobe, sits on her couch, covers herself in a wrap which was covering the couch and weeps. It's a powerful moment." DC Metro Arts stated "Valeka walks the trickiest line when it comes to winning our sympathy as Nina. But she will reduce you to a puddle in one scene when she comes upon a photo of herself as a toddler with her father, and suddenly all the pain of her childhood is reeled back and her face blossoms with a shy, girlish delight." Maryland Theatre guide states “Valeka is one of the most relaxed and unselfconscious actors I’ve seen on stage - ever... She is sensual and powerful – a performance to remember.”

Valeka is an excellent teacher! Her encouraging words and energetic attitude encouraged me to dig deep, step outside my comfort zone and go big. Her great acting advice helped me tremendously prepare for a role I had in a play. She helped me with confidence and understanding each scene. I received many great reviews after the show and I am thankful to Valeka for this.

I don't normally write reviews for services, but a class with Valeka is worth a review! I opted for an online coaching medium because of my schedule, and Valeka was very professional, warm, responsive and very prompt. She takes the time to understand how she can help you be your best! That level of attention to detail was so important to me, since I was new to this medium.

If you're looking for an acting coach, do yourself a favor and reach out!

Finding an Acting Coach in Los Angeles is a daunting and overwhelming process. For me, I set out to find someone who's approach resonated with me as well as pushed and challenged me, helping me deepen my craft and boost my self-confidence. I needed to find a coach with whom I could form a relationship, who could provide an environment where I felt comfortable to receive feedback, to allow myself to be vulnerable and to take risks. I wanted a coach who could facilitate growth and help take my career to the next level. And, of course, I wanted to find someone who is qualified and knows what they are doing. Valeka was recommended through a fellow actor, and it was the best referral ever! Her knowledge is incredible and she is always willing to help. Since working with Valeka, I have been constantly going on auditions and FINALLY getting called back. I can't recommend Valeka enough, and if my word is not enough, reach out to her. You won't be sorry!

About Kendra
Hello! My name is Kendra. I am a professional actress, a published author, a singer-songwriter, and a performance artist. I graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Theatre Arts (Acting) in 2015. I recently moved to Denver, CO from Los Angeles, CA with the intent of focusing on my songwriting career. I began theatrical training at the ripe age of 4, and immediately took to the stage. Auditioning became second nature for me, and I started booking roles and drawing the attention of local agents around age 8. The summers of my childhood were spent flying from my home of Houston, TX to Los Angeles, CA to study with the industry's top teachers. My love for acting continued to grow. I studied the intricacies of film and learned how to control my emotional recall. I learned how to light up the stage with my body language and how I c
arried my voice. At Pepperdine University, I focused on classical theatre, clowning, improvisation, and directing. My senior year, I was the assistant director for the Play: Doubt, A Parable. In November of 2017, I published my first book, "The Politics of". I am currently in the process of writing my second novel, working on my debut album, and becoming a part of the Denver poetry scene.

Hello, my name is Ricky. I have studied acting for 10 years and I've been working professionally for 5 years. I have my BFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton, where I was taught by Russian Master Acting Teacher Svetlana Efremova. I am trained in Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, Michael Chekhov, Meisner and Shakespeare. I'm also well trained in voice & movement, comedy and script analysis.

I frequently work in regional theatre including: South Coast Repertory, MainStreet Theatre Company, Coeurage Theatre and Rogue Artists Ensemble.

As a teacher, I make personal growth my main focus. I find that so many actors try to revolve their life around acting that they forget acting revolves around life. So much of what we know in acting all stems from personal experiences and our individual truth. I believe as you discover more about yourself, you discover more about the art of acting. I teach the Stanislavski method - "living truthfully in imaginary circumstances." However, I also use Uta Hagen as ...

About Ricky
Hi there! I'm Ricky - I'm a professional actor and a proud member of Actor's Equity Association. I have my BFA in Acting from Cal State Fullerton where I studied under Russian master acting teacher Svetlana Efremova. I am trained in Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, Chekhov, Meisner and Shakespeare.

I find that so many actors spend too much time revolving their life around acting they forget that acting revolves around life.
I believe that the most interesting thing in this industry is YOU. Who are YOU? There is no one else in this profession with your experience, your depth and your talent. You are unique. So much of what we know about acting stems from personal experience and individual truth. I believe that unlocking your potential through self discovery is the most efficient way to grow as an actor. You can learn every technique there is
, but how you use it as an individual is what matters. That is what makes people sit up in their seats. They know the techniques, but they don't know you.

I've learned this over the years attending open calls 3-5 times a week and submitting self tapes too many times to count. I've had the pleasure of frequently working in regional theatre including: South Coast Repertory, MainStreet Theatre Company, Coeurage Theatre Company and Rogue Artists Ensemble. I'm still learning from day to day. The education of this profession never ends and it never should. There is always more to discover and there is always more room to grow. That is what makes this industry so exciting and fulfilling, despite the many obstacles that will stand in your way.

Join me on the journey and lets discover what makes you unique!
