I have a Masters degree in Acting from the acclaimed Actors Studio Drama School in Manhattan, so I am well versed in most every acting technique; including Stanislavski, Strasberg, Meisner, Chekov, Hagen, Stella Adler, and beyond. I've taught acting to children, teens, and adults in the US and abroad since 2005 and my students are working! My main goal is to help you to develop your own set of tools for practicing the craft of acting, and to better understand your unique voice as an artist. Make sure to wear clothing you can move in during our sessions, and, most importantly, explore and just have fun!

About TOYA
I have taught acting to small children, teens, and adults in community, private, and collegiate settings. I taught acting at the legendary Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in New York City. My love of the arts has enabled me to study and perform in various cities throughout the US; including Los Angeles, where I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, to Europe, Mexico, South America; then back to New York City, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School.

I currently work professionally as an actor, singer, and TV and radio host. I've been fortunate enough to work in film, TV, theater, musical theater, hosting, commercials, improv, and voice-overs. I am also a vocally trained mezzo-soprano. Because I am still a working artist, I can not only teach you craft
, but can assist you in making the right choices to navigate your own way in the business. I offer private coaching to actors in theater and film, and singers in the US and abroad. I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer private coaching to children, teens, adults who have an interest in acting or singing performance, and for those who simply have an interest in performing or speaking in front of others. In addition to coaching those who wish to better their skills in acting, voice and speech, and singing, I also offer coaching for non-actors; i.e., attorneys, business professionals, teachers, politicians, pageant participants, and other creatives, who want to improve their public speaking and communication skills.

My daughter has learned so much from Toya since she started getting lessons from her. She is pretty flexible if you have to reschedule she's willing to work with you and your schedule as well as her own. My daughter has nothing but good to say about Toya and the fun she has with her all while learning too. She really enjoys her acting lessons and loves Toya.

Acting is believing! Easy to say, but trust me it's very hard to do. My class is dedicated to helping students understand the basic skills required in order to develop the art of believing. We will focus on the foundation of your movement and open your imagination in order to take the character into you. A lot of acting exercises will help develop your acting skills as well as help you find the motivation for every action you take, even breathing.

About Jazz

She grew up watching a lot of musicals with her father and was surrounded by her father’s community theatre group, Bhuddasil, where she first started developing her acting and singing skills. She performed in a number of Thai musicals with her father and had many tours around Thailand. In high school she became the school’s theatre director and began organizing, translating, and adapting numerous musicals and shows for the students to put on.
In 2009, she started Classical vocal training with Dusadee Banomyong, a Thai classical music master and The national astist, and was accepted into a highly prestigious choral group in Thailand, Suanplu Chorus. She worked professionally with other professional singers and conductors and performed concerts in many diff

She Has a Name toured around California to spread awareness of human trafficking and its impact on those involved. Since coming to America in 2013, she has also done several plays and musical with American River College and the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival. She was nominated for the Irene Ryan scholarship competition for her ensemble role in The Music Man in 2015 and went to the competition at American College Theatre Festival in Denver, Colorado.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

I thought as a theatre teacher that I didn't have much more to learn. I was wrong. Vandi has given me the confidence to sing. I hid in the altos for years and she helped me find the wider range I was seeking. She includes great visualizations in her lessons which helps a visual learner like me. I have the confidence to trust my breath and sing in ways I never thought possible. She is a wonderful teacher. Take lessons from her!

Chicago, IL

As a former director, casting director and teacher, my work with students includes Stanislavski based training, audition coaching, coaching for university admission, basic acting skill both on camera and off, acting in commercials, Shakespeare and the" Biz".

I am known for my ability to diagnose and solve an actor's problems quickly, to see where an actor's talent lies, and for my straightforward approach to instruction.

I have been teaching acting for thirty years privately as well as at acting schools and conservatories. I founded Acting Studio Chicago, headed the acting program at Louisiana State University, and recently retired as an Associate Professor of Acting at The Theatre School Conservatory at Depaul University in Chicago. My mentor was MIchael Shurtleff, author of the book Audition and I have been teaching all forms of audition methods both on camera and off for many years. I have also been a casting director, member of CSA which honored me with an award for casting

About Jane
My passion is teaching acting!

My mission is to help actors learn and grow, especially those who weren't given lots of help. I myself had few financial advantages, and little help or encouragement from my family. I am not particularly good looking nor was I not able to attend one of the prestigious universities or acting schools.

However, At the age of 20, I began making my living as an actress and as a singer.I am now a long time member of AEA and SAG/AFTRA.

My success came from hard work, determination, and talent. My drive to work as an actress never included fame, I simply wanted to act anywhere and anytime.
I struggled for many years to find a teacher or a method that would help me develop my talent and finally found one in Michael Shurtleff, author of the book, Audition. I worked with Michael for two years and became
his assistant. He inspired me to become a teacher, and I stopped acting because it no longer was as exciting to me as teaching and directing.

Now I teach workshops all over the country, do lots of skype and facetime coaching, and guest teach at universities. My dream of reaching lots of actors has come true and for that I am grateful.

In July 2017 I attended Jane's Fresh Faces for Film group session and from the moment she began the class I was taken aback by the depth and realism she brings to the art of acting. I knew I had come across an incredibly important person in my life; akin to the handful of teacher's in my youth that left an indelible mark on me. You quickly realize the experience and knowledge that she has established over her long career are immensely engaging and enriching. If you are willing to give in, she will take you down a path whereby you will learn not only acting but also something new about yourself. I am the sponge to her rain and extraordinarily privileged that our path's have crossed. I look forward to our next session.

Jane Brody is a force of nature, and an amazing teacher, mentor, and coach. Jane believed in me before I believed in myself, taught me how to act with immediacy and truth, and gave me an unshakable foundation on which I can base all work. She's tough, passionate, creative, and whip-smart (also very funny).

Are you wanting to be a more confident actor and improve your stage presence? Want to nail that audition? Or maybe you just want to be more comfortable speaking in public. I can help you. I am a professional EMC actor and singer with a degree in theatre from Oklahoma State University. I would love to help you with that new monologue or that audition song and help you ace that audition.

About Anthony
I am a professional vocalist, instrumentalist ( guitar, mandolin, piano, bass, ukulele), actor, writer and string theorist with a degree in Theatre from Oklahoma State University. I sing, act and play instruments for professional Equity theatres in the Dallas area and have music directed community and childrens productions. I am largely self taught and consider myself my own best student and once in college built a guitar completely out of materials found at home depot. I have also studied voice, piano and guitar with several industry professionals.

I place a large emphasis on ear training, which helps you to hear the structure and flow of music. Ear training is imperative for more advanced students to learn before they can begin improvisation. Its like giving a man a fish vs teaching a man to fish. Its also a great transition in
to the theory part of your instrument specifically for kids who often pick up and latch on to the concept. Ear training properly though is not only a daily process but can be difficult for some so if you feel like this isn't for you that is okay because it all comes down to what you want.

My voice students will learn to relax into their singing and to strengthen their voice week to week. Each student receives a personalized plan of daily exercises based on their needs and weekly performance. I also offer audition coaching for those in the musical theatre community. For kids and beginners we start with basic breath control and diction. For more advanced students we work on improvisation

My instrumental students will begin by learning ear training and basic structure from there I make it about you and what you want to learn. I am a big believer in genre bending instruments. I for instance play jazz and blues mandolin. If you're wondering why you have never heard of this its because you can count the number of culturally relevant jazz and blues mandolinists on one hand. There are also reasonably few people who teach this as it is something so rarely done. If you have latched on to a particular genre of music I'd love to help you explore it.

Acting students are encouraged to dabble in all parts of theatre and film as many roles require you to be a jack of many trades. Character development and emoting convincingly is only part of the game.

I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!

I am here to help you whether is is working on perfecting your audition monologue or just spending time working on your craft. I also can help you prepare for those upcoming college auditions. Past students attend schools like Ithaca, Point Park, Harvard and Berkeley. I believe that theatre is a great tool for self exploration and is an amazing way to build confidence!

About Jill
Hi! I am a theatre director and teaching artist from Washington, DC. I have worked in theatre education for the past ten years and I am currently pursing my MA in Theatre Education at Emerson College. I believe that theatre has the ability to change lives and love getting the opportunity to work a variety of experience levels.
In DC I directed high school and middle school actors and received many accolades along the way! You can find an interview with Tams Witmark about one of my favorite productions of HAIR.

I have taught for over seven years at one of DCs leading theatre educational institutes, The Theatre Lab School of the Dramatic Arts. I am also trained in their well renowned Life Stories Program. I excel in monologue work and audition preparation.
I have worked with students to prepare for college auditions as well. I can

My goal is to help you feel confident with your abilities and make audition day less stressful. Past students attend Point Park University, AMDA, Harvard, Ithaca and Berkeley. I will help you search for the perfect monologue for you.

With younger students we can focus on creative play by using our imaginations to create stories and working on improvisational skills. Theatre is a great tool to help build confidence and work on social skills as well as public speaking. I can even help your younger student with an upcoming audition!

I hope to have the chance to work with you!
