I LOVE coaching actors, it can make the difference between being good and getting the job. Just recently, my client Eurydice El-Etr booked a recurring role in a tv series with Josh Hartnett. We worked together on her audition AND on her performance that got her ecstatic feedback from the producers and director.

I believe the best teacher is one who is also working in the field.

I have worked consistently as an actor, starring alongside Susan Sarandon in 'Ace the Case", with Billy Zane in the upcoming "Waltzing with Brando", with Ray Liotta in "Syndrome K", or being the voice of all audiobooks from Disney Pixar's "Luca", and booking roles in "Gotham" and "Red Dead Redemption II". I just wrapped shooting a big role in the upcoming "The Gods II- The Dark Side", directed by Mykel Shannon Jenkins.

I was part of the faculty of the Susan Batson Studio in New York for eight years, before moving to Los Angeles. I am an expert in audition and on-camera technique, script analysis and ...

About Luca

Hi! I believe an acting teacher should 1)LOVE doing it, have a sincere passion for helping one actor at a time break through in their own unique way 2)be a working actor, showing that those teachings bring concrete results in the real world I fulfill both of those points, and look forward to c

Luca is very genuine and sincerely wants his students to succeed. His vast knowledge and experience come in to play an integral role when he is teaching. I was really appreciative of his sharing of his own know-hows that may help catapult my audition process.
Eurydice
Luca is one of the greatest coaches I’ve worked with. His insights are penetrating, he definitely knows how to read and breakdown a scene or a script, and he uses both instinct and intelligence, logic and sensory to immerse you into a situation and guide you towards a character. I've prepared various auditions and a part for a British series with him, and I couldn't recommend you enough to work with this great coach, who is also a beautiful and immensely generous person.
Federica
I was looking for a professional support to improve my acting skills and I found in Luca the best coach ever.

Luca has a natural talent to connect with others and feel exactly what you need.
With his great intuition and preparation he was able to help me to reach my goals providing a lot of tips and tricks during the session.
I am grateful I found a wonderful human being and coach like him and I can't wait to work with him again.
Thank you very much coach!

Hello! I'm Dax L., As a coach, my approach is kind, down to earth, and non-judgemental, but I make sure to give constructive criticism because without it, you cannot and will not improve. I have studied with a wide array of different acting coaches. I am also a producer, director, and screenwriter. Now having finally had the privilege of being the casting director for the film I produced, I have invaluable knowledge to share with you on what to do and what not to do when auditioning (both self-tapes and in person) if you choose to make one of our lessons an industry coaching lesson. For acting coaching, I have helped actors have that "WOW it finally makes sense" moment, where they understand what they had been lacking all along.. unpredictability! In my opinion, the things an actor needs to do to stand out in an audition is be unpredictable, believable, and fully focused. I am super excited to team up with TakeLessons and I hope to be your new coach!

Side note: If you need both ...

I resumed voice lessons with Shelley after a 12-year hiatus. I had adopted some bad vocal habits and had lost confidence in myself as a singer.

Shelley has helped me turn all of that around! Because of her professionalism, calm presence, and deep pedagogical knowledge, my range and vocal flexibility have improved immensely. More importantly, Shelley has helped me find my confidence and helped me realize that the vocalist I want to be is within reach.

I would recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to grow as a vocalist!
Marya
Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

"I went through the list of tutors in this site and thankfully found the perfect match for my daughter. Shauna has been a 'breathe of fresh air' since my daughter started acting training with her. Even though our sessions have only been online thus far, her presence and excellent quality of teaching can be felt as if she is sitting right next to her. My daughter loves her and she has really been able to find 'her voice' and bring out the best in her as she prepares for her High School Auditions. Shauna is not only qualified to do the job but brings to her skill set a humanistic side that really makes her student want to learn and do better. I would give ten stars if I could!!!
I wouldn't recommend anyone else to help your child perfect and master their craft."
