Actors - Singers
My job is to work with you to help you realize your dream as an actor or music artist. I am moved by the amount of work the actors I work with are booking. Congratulations, guys! Actors, we will work on monologues, scenes and cold readings and auditions technique to grow your craft. Singers and Artists, bring your voice and instruments. Don't have one? I do!
I am a Critic's Circle Award Winning Actor and Singer, Published Songwriter and Recording Artist, trained in New York City and at Cincinnati College Conservatory ( that's on of those incredible schools where 13 out of about a thousand are accepted ) of Music and Los Angeles. I have been lucky to work with some incredible people and you will be one of them!
If you're looking for a coach to work with from the ground up or looking for an advanced acting or singing performance coach, let’s talk. I am a member of Sag-Aftra and Actors Equity Association. If you don’t have access to a teacher where you live, you absolutely can study effectively online. You deserve to study acting or music performance and you deserve a place in my studio. Auditioning for colleges or agents, planning your move to Los Angeles or NYC or working where you are and need to start studying and to begin in the business or need audition help in a hurry? Let's get to work.
I'll not only collaborate with you to stretch your acting chops but I'll also help you understand the industry and how you fit in to it. We will work on audition prep, monologues, scenes, singing performance and we will find out who you are and how you show up in the biz. I am generous with what I know. I care about you, the artist. See my bio below.
For Parents of Minors:
I'm available to help you understand this somewhat confusing industry. I was a young actor/performer in the industry myself.
More about Kathryn
I studied at Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (CCM). In New York City I was under the care of opera teacher, Leona Matthews, famed acting teacher and director, Word Baker and Edward Morehouse as a student at HB Studio in NYC and Mark Monroe in San Francisco and Los Angeles. I have my own writing doc, the revered Dr. Joyce Block. I work as a recording artist and writer. And I’m lucky to work as a concert artist, too. I began teaching in the early 90's in San Francisco with Mark Monroe, after co founding Mark Monroe Studios. MM Studios began originally in 1987 when I and Mr. Monroe packed their studio, by word of mouth, and when the studio totaled six hundred and fifty actors; they added a studio in Los Angeles. I have been coaching actors and musicians and developing artists ever since. Extended bio upon request.
My background in acting and singing performance comes from the Method. Musicians, Bring or have (online) your instrument.
