Looking for an acting coach?   Need to tape an audition?

Need help finding a monologue?
….preparing for an upcoming audition?
… looking to sharpen your skills?
…learn more about the business?

My goal is to empower my students by combining my years of experience and training with my knowledge of the ‘business of the business’. I want you to have the skills necessary to develop yourself as an artist and know how to move forward with your personal career goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from private lessons?
I shape private lessons to the skill level and interest of the student. If you wanted to do scene work & bring a friend, we would do that. If you needed to work on commercials or cold reading, we would do that. If you needed a monologue for an audition, we would do that. With most of my long-term students, we mix it up to keep all their skills sharp and keep it interesting.

Why should I have a private lesson versus a group class?
One-on-one meetings offer more personalized instruction & are tailored to your needs. Group classes offer the variety of interaction with other students.

What if I have to cancel or reschedule?
Please provide a 24-hour notice when cancelling or rescheduling. If you must cancel same day, please call, don’t e-mail or text. Same day cancellations are subject to a $45 charge.
