I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

Hello!

Writer / Director
Based in LA/NY
Haitian American
Graduate of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

I love actors and I love stories. I enjoy working in easeful environments so my aim is to create that space for you so you can be free.

Each session will include:
• A read of the scene(s)
• I'll pose questions to you (as the character) in the story
• We'll run through the feelings/emotions of the scene from your character POV
• A Fun-Through

Homework for you:
Daydream about your life as the character in the story

You'll love working with me if quick turn-around self tapes give you anxiety and you want a reader who can calm you down.

The way I like to work on stories is simple. Easeful.

I am trained in Meisner, so I'm happy to play a little here with you.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Daphne

I'm a working Actor from England who moved to Los Angeles. I've worked on large sets and know what it is like to book and be the lead in a movie. I want to help students broaden ideas of what acting is by sharing some of the great actors, directors and films from the past. Share how I do my work. While also talking about what it's actually like to walk on set for the first time and have to carry a film on your shoulders.

For those actors actively pursuing a career we can work on a role or self tape, talk about how to book a job and what to do if you do book one. My last two jobs including driving a car in Downtown LA with a police escort and an Oscar winning DP in the car filming me and the other being flown to Canada to play the lead in a TV Movie that aired in multiple countries around the world. All of this nothing other than I at least can share what things helped me get there and what it's like to be in that situation.

I'm very much looking forward to sharing this with ...

About Sebastian

I've played the lead in multiple projects including full feature films. If you want to get real knowledge of what it's like to be in that situation, how I got there and what my process is in acting. Then let's get to work.

Maria is by far the perfect person to start this journey with. Her knowledge is phenomenal, and I can't wait to keep growing in my singing abilities!!
Anthony C.
Maria was teaching my daughter opera, she learned a lot and we'll seek her out again to continue. She is an expert in her field. My daughter loved her and everyone she encountered in the music industry wanted to learn how she learned this and how she learned that when we told them they said she had a good teacher. We'll be back Maria. Thanks for all you've shown her.

My daughter’s first lesson was great!

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction.
