With more than two decades of experience working as a professional SAG-AFTRA/AEA actor in Los Angeles, New York, and many places in between, coaching others to build their best auditions and reach their potential as actors and performers has become a passion of mine.

Private Coaching services include, but are not limited to:

* Private Audition Coaching
* College-Specific Audition Coaching and Monologue Selection
* Audition Material Selection Assistance (especially for young women - I have a lot to look through!)
* Work Up a Challenging Role
* Vocal Work and Public Speaking
* Song-As-Monologue Coaching
* "I want to be an actor - where do I start?" Consultation

About Emily B.

Whether the focus of a session is on building a stellar repertoire of audition pieces, working on a difficult role, getting deeper into the language of Shakespeare, or song-as-monologue work for musical theater actors, my approach to private coaching is centered around meeting the needs of the client. My goal is to help you reach yours through the development of technique, confidence, and helpful tools you can use to further cultivate your talent outside of our sessions.

I had my first lesson with Emily yesterday and I loved it! She was easy to talk to and super nice. She also had great tips to give me and helped me a lot and it has only been one day. I really like the way she teaches and I would highly recommend her.
