Private Acting Teacher

I'm a working commercial actor and commercial acting coach that you see on TV. I am also a manager, producer, and former agent. I groom and prepare actors for work in Hollywood and I have been doing so for two decades. While many of my former students and clients are top commercial actors, TV and film stars, thousands more are professionals that work in every area of television and film. I grew up in Tyler, Texas, lived in Dallas, made my career in Los Angeles, and gained international celebrity status in London, England. After 30 amazing years in California, I have returned to work with actors all across my home state of Texas. I specialize in grooming and developing, starting careers, teaching on-screen techniques, and helping actors understand what it takes to make it in Hollywood. All acting styles have evolved, including commercials. Do you know how to create humor and believability? Do you know the role of the casting director, ad agency, AD, and director? I often hear from ...

About Addison

Since 1998, I've helped my clients break through the walls of Hollywood. I asked how does one live and survive in Hollywood as an actor and entertainer? That question took me on a journey that would change my life and the lives of people who have taken my advice. After investing in a $300.00 vide

The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.

April has such precision, kindness and astute ears. Thank you so much for helping me go back to basics, slow myself down and be consistent in my practice!
Mara
I studied with April S. for a year; I see my “great” improvements; breathing, holding notes, and discovering that I wasn’t tone deaf. I loved every second of every minute I spent learning to sing with April S. I plan to take more lessons in the future. It was my joy studying with April S.; it was a life long dream of mine to learn how to sing properly. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m so confident that with more lessons I will achieve everything I want with April S. as my vocal instructor.

I've been a professional actor for over 30 years. My work has ranged from classical theatre, world premiere plays, to guest starring roles in television and film including Modern Family, Scandal, CSI Los Angeles and many more.

I co founded an award winning regional theatre in the Northwest that is still running strong. Last year, the film I directed, Here Awhile starring Anna Camp, and Joe Lo Truglio, was released to wide acclaim.

Throughout my career as an actor who has performed with 6 Academy Award winners, I have remained committed to sharing my knowledge and experience with other actors.

I received my BFA at Southern Oregon University where I worked at the famed Oregon Shakespeare festival. My MFA comes form the Alabama Shakespeare festival. I taught acting at Cornell University and Willamette University as well as teaching privately for the last 20 years.

The industry is growing and changing all the time, and what makes working with me particularly special is that I'm ...

Tim's class is a great resource for anyone looking to improve their acting skills, audition technique, or general understanding of the industry. He does a wonderful job of translating his extensive experience into practical advice for other actors. Every week, he provides individualized feedback to each workshop participant on every aspect of their submission. I've learned so much about specific techniques for television and film acting, the practical and technical considerations when putting together a self-tape, as well as just general professionalism and industry standards. Thanks to this workshop, I feel much more confident and prepared for what a career in acting entails.
Liz
This is a very useful class. I've learned a lot about making self tapes that I didn't know before - from technical considerations to acting skills. The class is friendly, supportive, and useful.
Lauren
I love working with Tim! He consistently guides me to do my best possible work, and I always walk away feeling confident that I crushed the audition, whatever it is. And booking several jobs after getting coached by him certainly doesn't hurt!

"It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie."

Who is the Highest Paid Actor? Why Your Paycheck May Not Reflect Your Skill Level

Who is your favorite actor? For the past few years, it’s been Denzel Washington, according to polls. Count me amongst the masses! Denzel Washington is fantastic, and he’s my favorite actor, too. For decades, he’s wowed me with his dramatic prowess. The man even has the acting chops to tackle great theatrical works on Broadway, such as A Raisin in the Sun, and blew the critics away there as well. He’s played a wide variety of roles, portraying men in various time periods and from n …

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …
