Tiffini L.

Escondido, CA

I've been teaching acting for more than 20 years and my students (and I) have gone on to work in theater, film, TV, commercials, modeling, voice overs, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll you'll learn acting basics and start creating and acting as different characters. I have a large library of acting materials as well as acting literature. Acting techniques may include: The Meisner technique, method acting, classical language interpretation, improv, and acting for the stage, and more! I love working with students of all experience levels to learn how to "professionally pretend."

About Tiffini

I offer a fun, interactive teaching style that encompasses more than 20 years of performing and 15 years of teaching experience. As a performer I have worked as a professional singer, actor, musician, and dancer. I have always had a passion for teaching, directing, and composing. While my love for performing has lessened over the years, I have found my true calling: teaching, directing, and helping others to find their passion for music and the performing arts.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a special emphasis in music, theatre, dance, and psychology. I am
a graduate candidate working on completing my thesis as my final requirement for a Masters of Arts degree in Music at San Diego State University.
Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS), California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT), and Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).

I have proudly seen many of my students go on to pursue higher education and careers in music, theatre, and dance.

Joe P.

Escondido, CA

My instruction in acting encompasses all levels from beginning to advanced using a strong base in Stanislavski while blending it with many other theories in order to take students to the deepest levels of characterization and realization – finding the truth in the moment and in the story. The goal of this eclectic approach is to be able to extract something useful from each theory, something that works best for the individual actor thus aiding them in creating their own essential actor’s tool box - a box which holds the keys and secrets to their soul’s inner workings and the mechanisms used to retrieve them.

Long standing memeber: Screen Actor's Guild and Actors Equity Association

Will teach age 12 and up.

Sharon is an excellent instructor that can effectively take someone with absolutely zero formal knowledge of music or singing and make a things understandable. I never thought I would be able to read sheet music and now I actually understand what i'm looking at. It's a much broader learning experience than I imagined which is a very good thing. Sharon teaches you the little parts that eventually come together to become a big part of your vocal ability. I'm glad I was able to find someone with this level of in-depth knowledge of music and vocals, it's making for a great learning experience.

Tyler S.

Temecula, CA

I have been a performing artist since the age of 7. Over the years, I have worked under dozens of production companies for film and stage. As world-renowned author, Malcolm Gladwell, states in his book: "Outliers," it takes 10,000 hours of experience to be considered an expert of any field. After hitting that mark around Christmas 2012, I began to write a curriculum and had my first student a few weeks later.

To give you an idea of my general class structure, it is typically a balance of the following:

Craft Foundation,
Personal Study,
Performance Development,
Business Analysis,
Art Exercise,
and Method Discovery

I pull from a wide array of past learning experiences, (from the academy, to the set/stage/studio, to my personal library), to produce the best exercise technique for each individual student's uniquely-structured learning path in the art and craft of Acting.

We will study personal development, (how to prepare your slate for each new story), ...

About Tyler

As Executive Director of Method Center Actors Inc., New York Film Academy alum and Rehearsal Room Acting School alum, and member of the prestigious Actors Studio, Tyler has been teaching the craft of Acting under Method Center Actors Studio and as an independent coach for over 3 years.

My 11 year old son is already a working actor, but we needed someone to iron out the "rough spots" and give him some extra coaching. Since we don't live near LA, we first started working with Tyler because he was local. He is fantastic! My son just loves him, and they connect really well. When he had an audition for a lead part in a movie, Tyler took the time outside of our normal schedule for some one on one time at the last minute. He is always friendly, professional, and always flexible with our schedule. My son did not get that part, but he auditioned for a tv pilot a few weeks later. He didn't get the part he auditioned for, but he made such an impression on the director, they actually created a special rolel for just for him. We owe some of this to Tyler, he really knows how to bring out the best in your kid. Also, his fees are reasonable. You won't be disappointed!

Ke S.

Oceanside, CA

HI! I worked as a stage actor in the Bay Area, and a voice actor in the LA Area. Let's see if I can help you achieve those dramatic breakthroughs you are looking for!

About Ke

HI. My name is Ké and I come from an extremely eclectic learning background that will probably benefit you in many different ways since I have a lot of training and experience in a variety of subjects!

I currently work as an illustrator and can help you with various artistic challenges you might have. I know that digital artwork is taught in schools and some people are just having problems understanding some of the complex computer programs out there. Believe me, I know! I've been in that same boat, too, and I'm here to help you understand and achieve those goals.

I also worked as a sta
ge actor for some time. If you're an acting student I can probably help you get those break throughs you might need to really shine!

Lets see if I can help you out. I've been privately teaching since the late 1990's. I bet we can make something positive happen with your learning goals!
