Private Acting Teacher

I am ready to meet with actors of all ages and experience levels. This business is fast moving and can be vague at times leaving you wondering what could you have done differently if you didn't book the job. I want you to succeed, but first you need the proper tools to get to that next level of your career. From my experience of working in LA and Chicago as well as drawing from previous instructors, you will learn more than just basic acting exercises. Gain an upper hand on your contemporaries!

I enjoyed my session with Christian. He is fair and knowledgeable
Amy
Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.

Before I begin, you must know that there is no "one way of acting". Each person has their own methods that work for them, and they are discovered along the way. With that being said, one must find the right teacher that is the best fit for them. The Meisner Technique has been taken apart and put back together over the years, I teach it the way that he originally began it... one could also call it The Montes Method. Also, I tap into Strasbourg Technique. As a professional actor and acting coach, you have to keep training to stay on top. To teach acting is not only a pleasure for me, but it's also a must, as acting is my biggest addiction.

Blake is super informed and very motivated. He motivates you to work more and better. He shares everything he knows and supports you anyway he can...
He learned by him self so much and helps you do the same yourself!
I recommend him for Video Production or Film Production too. Check his work, the man does a lot of different things and all of them very good.
I totally recommend him :)

Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.
Kenjah
I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

Nationally-certified teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique of acting, Kara is a professional stage and screen actress, director, producer, and theatre educator. She has appeared on screen in Allegiant and Logan Lucky, and on numerous stages around her home base of Atlanta, GA. She holds a BFA and an MFA in acting, and has taught at The University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi to name a few.

Kara is passionate about acting, about the arts broadly, and about teaching. Her greatest joy is working with actors to find those moments of transcendence that define great performances.

About Kara

I'm not going to lie to you. It's not easy being an actor. It's vulnerable. It's unstable sometimes. It forces you to confront your weaknesses. But, because I will NEVER lie to you, you'll know exactly where you stand, what you need to work on, how much you're improving. I'm not saying I'm tough or

"Rebecca Linton is an absolutely phenomenal acting teacher. I cannot express how grateful I am for her guidance and instruction. She is the best teacher I have ever had by far. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things acting. She knows how to push her actors to improve beyond where they thought they could go. She had led me to get multiple Superior ratings at acting competitions. She is familiar with a host of different acting methods including but not limited to those of Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, and Sanford Meisner. I seriously cannot express how grateful I am for her. She had had a profound impact on my life and taught and cared for me in a way no other acting teacher in the world ever could!"
