Private Method Acting Teacher

Method Acting requires concentrated focus on character development and commitment to that character. The importance of maintaining the "reality" of the character is of optimal importance and these lessons will allow the actor to establish a strong, self-contained character that can function successfully in the role.

About Ashli

Hi! My name is Ashli and I have been a professional actress for over 20 years. I have several professional (TV/Film) credits and I have been in over 20 stage plays. In addition to my professional career, I have been studying acting for over 15 years and hold a bachelors degree in theatre acting from The California Institute of the Arts.

I began coaching and directing actors about 10 years ago. I can teach any age (5+) and any experience level, though, having been a child actor myself, I connect especially well with kid and teen actors. My teaching methods are rooted in several different techniques (method, Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky) but overall, my approach is one that immerses the actor in their work fully. Our sessions will engage your mind, body, and spirit with the hopes that you will become a well rounded and captivating artist and

performer.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Private Method Acting Teacher

As a producer and director I always ask auditioning actors if they are taking acting lessons. If they are it means they will not be stuck on a single track and can be directed. I studied acting under Lawrence Merrick, I wanted to become a better director.
I teach using the Stanislavsky method of teaching. Depending on the actors experience I go through three steps. Preparation, Building a character, creating a role. "There are no small parts'
I will stay with you from Audition to role.

About Edward Lee

I have produced or directed feature films, commercials and stage productions for over 30 years. While in new your I was a director for the New York Council on the arts and directed stage around the state. At that time I also taught acting (something I love to do, watching an actor grow in their craft was always exciting). I am a student of Stanislavsky and use his teaching method in my classes. I have, in my career, hired hundreds of actors and actresses so I know how a casting directors mind works. Acting is hard work but the rewards are worth it.

About J

I am a professional actor, writer, director and acting coach. I graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelors of Art, specifically in Theatre. I am also a graduate of Savannah College of Arts & Design with a Masters of Fine Arts, with a focus on performing arts.

Acting students can expect improve with each class they attend. I teach students to be free and expressive while being on stage. Being free and uninhibited allows the students to not be self conscious and able to fully absorb the acting process. I can help any student to perform with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a professional actor I get the opportunity to travel throughout the US with my original plays and workshops. I've had the chance to perform in many different venues, from festivals to black box theaters. With getting the chance to be apart

of workshops I get to be trained by other professional actors also. Yep, there is always work to be done

While my ultimate passion is acting, I am a huge advocate of supporting the arts in all capacities. As a performer by nature it is my belief that training is essential to every artist's process. I look forward to sharing my love and passion for acting with you! Let's change the world through the ARTS!!!!

I've been a professional film, TV and stage actor for over 20 years. I have a lot of experience working in Hollywood as well as independent stage. From improv comedy to serious drama, I stress naturalism in everything I do and that is what I coach.
When learning, I know how important it is to have positive encouragement and support for creative development, and providing that is always my first priority. My goal in coaching is to help actors become the best they can be, and to succeed wherever they are in their artistic journey.

About ned

I'm a passionate, caring acting coach whose number one goal is to help actors find their sincere, authentic truth and express that sincerity within the imaginary circumstances of film, television, and theater. Whether you are interested in a professional career in acting, just curious about the craft, or simply want to be the best actor you can be, I can help you get there.

"Tyler's coach was a top student of Master Stella Adler, who was the only American Acting Master to train directly under Constantin Stanislavsky. Stanislav
sky was the creator of The Method [Acting] and is KING of modern acting. Craft knowledge base does not get more grounded and serious than where Tyler's coming from. I am very happy to have found him. I just to his area from LA and we have been working together ever since. Fantastic teacher!!"
