Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Acting is for all ages and for everyone! That's why I love it and I thrive at teaching it. We are all actors just being born! No matter what your performance is for, be it musical theater, feature film, television, webisode, play, monologue competition etc, I can help you take it to the next level.

We will find repertoire and work on diving into material, making it personal so the words flow naturally, and really breaking it down and finding the reason the author chose each word. Can also work on audition material.

Monica is wonderful!
Wow! I was impressed by Monica's recap from her class about reading music. She made things so clear- it helped me a lot, now I can explain them to my own student more easily! I also love her positive attitude!
Sawyer ..
It doesn’t get much better than hearing from my child “Monica is so awesome. At the beginning of the song it goes super low and I couldn’t hit the notes. She helped me with my technique and by the end of the lesson it was easier to hit them! And even though I know I did awful trying to hit them at the beginning she didn’t make me feel like she thought it was bad!”

My kids love their lessons with Monica, she is always positive and supportive with them and I can tell they are improving vocally. Very happy we chose her!

As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past few months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, and a role on an upcoming Netflix drama series. This is in addition to working act

His experience at Carnegie Mellon is unparalleled; he clearly knows how to strategically approach the text and then apply it to both on-camera work and stage work.

Lastly, he is currently filming and working on major projects; he is wonderful at sharing his experiences and talking through his own current learning experiences."

How to Handle Rejection as an Actor

One of my college acting professors told us, “if you can’t handle rejection, find another major. Actors are rejected more than they’re cast. You will have to deal with rejection every day; and if you let it get to you, you won’t last long”. Those words stuck with me all these years: not only for their brutal honesty, but also because I wish I had asked her: how do we deal with all this rejection? Fortunately, there are many A-list stars who can tell you stories of how they experie …
