Tina B.

Bainbridge Island, WA

(31)

Private Acting Teacher

I began acting in community theatre when I was seventeen years old. It is something that I am absolutely passionate about. I have been fortunate enough to play some of the characters that I love; Nellie Forbush in "South Pacific"; Anita in "West Side Story"; Eliza Dolittle in "My Fair Lady" and Guinevere in "Camelot," to name a few. I have also been in two independent films.

I will be teaching two group lessons, one on Monday nights from 6:00-7:00 pm and one on Tuesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm. Monday nights will be for children and Tuesday nights for adults. I will be welcoming up to five students in each class. During my classes we will learn different acting techniques, among them improv and Stanislavski's Method.

My 30+ years of experience in community theatre and what I have learned from teachers and other actors is what I look forward to passing on to those who are as passionate about acting as I am.

About Tina

I started singing professionally at the age of fourteen. I have had leading roles in semi-professional theatre productions since I was seventeen. I have also been assistant director, musical director, choreographer, costumer and writer for many productions from West Side Story to My Fair Lady to

Private Acting Teacher

For me as an actor, the benefit of a great coach or director has always been that they've helped me reach places in my work I couldn't have achieved on my own. As a coach myself, I'm most thrilled by those small (or monumental!) breakthroughs that my students and I discover together during the coaching process. The cool thing is that I've found the progress my students make in their craft will often inspire me to new heights in my own. (A bonus to already enriching work)!

If you want to develop new material for upcoming auditions, hone and refresh (or completely change) your monologues, or simply work on the craft of acting, I can help. I work to gear your coaching sessions to the goals you need to achieve, offering an experience created around what you need to work on and want to learn.

With a BFA in Acting and Directing, an MFA in Classical Acting, and over 20 years of professional acting experience in the theatre and on-camera, I can offer tools for your tool belt ...

About Jason

I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting.

Jason has been an amazing coach for my incredibly active animated son. He is great at redirecting my boy when he has trouble focusing and provides immediate feedback to help my son make progress. We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family. Jason it a true professional and communicates beautifully with me. I am looking forward to continuing lessons for my son!

Jason previously worked with my teenage daughter and they made vast improvements in her acting skills and college audition. She was accepted into AMDA. Now he is working with my older daughter to help her get ready to audition at UW and get a working reel together. He is fantastic and really good with any learning differences or styles that might come up.

Students can expect to learn the basics of acting, writing, scene study, monologue work, and auditioning through weekly vocal and physical warm ups, visualization exercises, theatrical activities and improv games. Students strengths will continue to be built upon while weak areas will be identified and reintroduced in a way that will allow it to "click" Specific course work in theatre, film & TV, or auditioning will be chosen by the student, is not mandatory, and can be changed at any time.

I found the instructor to be very patient and experienced. I am a beginner and have no experience with playing the piano and hopefully will learn from her experience.

What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.

I’ve hired Kalyse as an actor multiple times. She’s also a great pianist and guitarist. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their instructor.

Currently the title role of the hit Off-Broadway revival of The Fiddler on the Roof, I love helping high school students with their college auditions! A graduate of Boston University's BFA Acting program, I have a deep understanding of various acting techniques that I bring to our classes. I can help you find the right contemporary and classical monologues and songs for your audition, so that you feel comfortable and confident!

We love Lauren. She is making violin a great experience for our daughter (11 yrs old). She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school. Lauren is flexible with scheduling and very reliable, and we intend to stick with her - and with the violin- for the duration!

Lauren is an awesome violinist. I worked with her in a show and watched her tackle many different styles of music, improvise with other musicians, and collaborate on new material. I would recommend her to anyone!

Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job.

I've been teaching acting for several years and my students have gone on to pursue film, perform in community and school productions, gotten into college programs, and pursue careers in acting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform a monologue and as time goes on you'll have a full repertoire of monologues and skills ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

"Molly was the perfect choice for my daughter, who was preparing to audition for an academy of arts high school. Molly was so full of enthusiasm and love for her craft, and her energy is contagious. She was able to put my daughter at ease, assist her in memorization of her monologue, prepare her for improvisation and even have her some rudimentary vocal training. Her ability to encourage my daughters dramatic choices while gently guiding her and putting her completely at ease was magnificent. More importantly, she made everything FUN! Her work with my daughter was successful, and my daughter was able to audition with confidence and poise. Thanks to Molly, my daughter was accepted into the Academy of Arts and is on her way to an exciting high school career. Thanks, Molly!!!!!"

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors."
