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."
I teach everything from the basic require skills for booking commercial, television and film acting roles. Every area for on camera work from how to prepare for the audition to delivering an effective performance is dealt with - all on camera....video taped and played back. I even cover how to walk and talk in a scene or host a show...Improvisational skills are also covered . I use both the Sanford Meisner and Michael Shurtleff Methods. No stone is left uncovered. The point of this class is to learn the skills to book work while having fun... Some of my students are working currently in the business. I am BBB member and have been in good standings!
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 â 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 actorâs tool box - a box which holds the keys and secrets to their soulâs inner workings and the mechanisms used to retrieve them.

Acting is all about having fun. My lesson plan can adapt with whatever you may want to learn. You can bring a friend and do a skit/dialogue or come by yourself and we can pick out a monologue for you to study.
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!
