What can I expect from private lessons?

I shape private lessons based on the skill level and interest of the student.   I can help you find monologue, practice cold reading, or help you do scene work with a friend – whatever you need to develop your skills and be prepared with opportunity knocks.

Students of Sara’s have booked parts in commercials, films and television; booked stage roles (including the Alley); are routinely accepted into talent agencies; and have been accepted into acting programs locally (the Alley, TUTS), in New York, in L.A., and at the university level.
