Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more. For beginners who are simply interested in trying something new, your creativity is your GOLD, and I am excited to work with you as you treat yourself to exploring the world of storytelling and as you honor what YOU have to say. Time to leap!

I give acting lessons and coaching in all aspects of acting, based in the celebrated Meisner Technique, which I've taught for over 30 years. I teach a full technique program for those who want to study the whole system which includes, improvisation, scene work and character work, cold readings, monologue development and much much more. For those who already have experience or are professional actors I offer high-level coaching, taking your auditions to the next level, and working with you on your current scripts and projects to magnify your focus, intentions and behaviors so that you can sharpen your performances to the highest degree. I am experienced in theater, film, tv and commercial work, and have tailored techniques for all of these areas. I've refined cold reading technique so that you can quickly break down a script into essentials and win roles, or even go in completely cold and work super-effectively directly off the script. Super-sharp script breakdowns for film roles, cold readings, monologue performance, and detailed character creation are all specialities of mine that I've worked on with actors for many years. And if you do engage with the full technique program, you will get a clear and effective way of working with every phase of the actor's performance. I am fully available online, and for those who want to work in person locally, I will be reopening my real-world studio in the near future. Film acting sessions include script breakdowns, timeline construction and application, acting for specific shots (two-shot, closeup, etc.), rehearsing shots on set, preparation for shots and scenes, preparing for multiple takes, varied takes, taking direction from a film director, improvisation for film roles, specific focus points on-camera, how to change up on takes to adapt to the director, micro-behavior to give a more detailed film performance, creating a role for film, creating a specific character for film.

Emmy Award Winner David T. has over 33 years of acting experience in Film, TV and Stage. He is best known World-wide for his role on “The Young and the Restless” where he received 3 Emmy nominations and won his first Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Billy Abbott. 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.

First of all, let me just say, I love people. What really makes me happy outside of pursuing my dreams as a performer is watching other performers, make their dreams come true. I have a gift for helping others come out of their shells and be the unique individuals that they are met to be. I specialize in building confidence in order to bring out the best of each student. I base each workshop on the student and his/her level and goals. I tailor each class according to the strength or weaknesses of the student. I also focus on assisting students who seriously decide to pursue the industry professionally. I don't promise to make you a star but I do coach you to be prepared to become one if that is your goal.

Working with actors for film and television is my specialty. I coach for auditions, self tapes and for productions in development and on sets making sure they are prepared and doing their best work. If you’ve never been on set we will work to make sure you achieve the ability to understand what is needed to work as an actor in this medium. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to understand how we go about doing this thing called acting. One thing you must know about me, I am really nice. I won't crush your dreams. I will, however, make sure you attain them. I can come to you or you can meet me where I teach. I have been teaching virtually for 10 years. If you want to act, we can make it happen.
