Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

As a professional actor, director, and coach with more than a decade of experience in the acting world I'd love to help you bring your skills to the next level, nail your next audition, and bring your favorite roles to life on stage and on screen. I'm an acting coach in Phoenix and I’ve worked with actors and singers of all ages for many years. I currently direct musicals and plays throughout the valley along with regularly coaching actors and singers. I've been featured on MTV and worked in a variety of live theater and film/TV/podcast projects. Recently I was a Quarter-Finalist for the Grammy Award for Educator of the Year.

Whether you want to work on monologues, scene work, prepare for auditions, develop your voice, improve facial/hand/physical gestures, or all of the above, I'd be happy to work with you to develop your passion for acting.

Topher was a great coach for my child. He always had fun at lessons and his voice got so much better, his confidence also greatly improved. He's started auditioning for musicals at his school and just got his first lead role!

Topher is a wonderful teacher with a real gift for helping singers. I felt so much more confident in my voice after just one lesson.

Stella loves lessons with Mr. Topher. I wasn't sure if online lessons would be the right fit for us but now that school is shut down it's ended up being a blessing! She sang for her school talent show this year and sounded so beautiful, thanks Mr Topher!

I tailor each lesson to the actor. I create a safe space to play and learn. I empower and uplift each student so they approach the work with excitement instead of fear. Together, we create realistic goals for the actor's career. We may work on auditions, self tapes, scenes, anything and everything the actor is struggling with.

I help each student analyze the script so they can make strong choices that are unique to their acting talents.

"I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too."

"The first lesson of the ten-pack I bought (to start) went very well. Michael was knowledgeable and provided just the kind of feedback I wanted for my solo vocal performances (I was looking for instruction on *acting* in solo vocal performance), giving me immediately useful tips for improving my next performance. It's clear that Michael has a lot to offer me. I look forward to more in the coming lessons."

Kelly's broad knowledge of acting techniques coupled with her engaging and fun teaching style was a BIG win for my son's self-confidence. Kelly's can do attitude and positive outlook is contagious. She inspires you to want to improve your craft; having fun in the process. Kelly taught my son techniques that are useful in all aspects of communication; skills he can take into his adult life. I would recommend Kelly to anyone who is interested in acting, improv, public speaking or an overall tune up on how to read and respond to social situations. Thanks Kelly!"

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’.
