$$$$ - PRIVATE LESSONS vs A CLASS – WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE FINANCIALLY?
My Private Lessons save you time and money while learning at a much faster rate. The math is very simple:
The average Acting Class is $300 per month and you must attend according to that particular schedule every week. Each Class will last approximately 3 hours + travel time = 4 hours per week, which = 16 hours per month. Each class has an average of 20 Students, which will give you approximately 15 minutes of actual work in each class. So, realistically, you are spending $300 and 16 hours of your time per month to work on your chosen craft and only receive 1 hour of actual work per month… correct?
My 4 Hour Discount Package is only $280 and we meet according to your schedule and mine. So, for $20 less per month – you will receive 4 solid hours of work that focuses completely on you.

SHOULDN'T I BE IN A SCENE STUDY CLASS?
Are you in a "Scene Study" Class? In reality, I seriously doubt you are...
Let's see if any of this sounds familiar to you: Once a week you go to a Class with approximately 20 other actors. You have to find a Scene Partner and the two of you need to decide on a scene with zero guidance. If it's from a movie, you need to listen to it repeatedly in order to write down the dialogue (so you have the original Actor's performance already stuck in your head). Scheduling time to rehearse with your partner is next to impossible. When you do get together, it is uncomfortable because your partner wants something more intimate than just rehearsal (if you know what I mean). So after all of that, you perform your scene in front the Teacher and they say "That was good - but try this, this and this." You and your partner do that, that and that - and then the Teacher says "See? That's awesome."
You are not in a Scene Study Class - you are in a How To Take Direction Class. This will not help you get a job, nor will it help you on a set (unless you luckily have a brilliant and very patient Director).
I teach Scene Study - AKA Script Analysis and I teach you how to use it to book a job and most importantly, how to be self sufficient on the set and working intelligently in the real world.
If you desire group Classes - I would strongly suggest you take an Improv Class or do a Play.
WHY DO I NEED A COACH?
I work with a lot of Actors who are at various levels in their career. They wisely Coach with me for auditions and study with me regularly. Once they book a part, they continue working with me to prepare for the entire project. It doesn’t matter how good or experienced they are - it truly makes the difference between a good performance and a brilliant one. Look at it this way: Tiger Woods in his prime always had his Coach with him at all times. The same concept applies here - always push yourself to be the absolute best.
CAN I SAVE MONEY IF I BUY IN BULK?
Yes. See my complete RATES & RULES Page for all of your Discount Package options.
WHAT AGES DO YOU TEACH?
I work with and train Actors of all ages and levels. I can answer practically any questions you may have and you will quickly learn what is expected of you to become a working Actor. Please note that my Technique focuses on Script Analysis - so I suggest no Children under 12 as it involves a certain level of reading comprehension. However - I can absolutely Coach younger children for auditions.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP CLASSES?
I can do couples, friends and/or siblings. I try to keep it small (and primarily One-On-One Sessions). It truly is better for my Clients. In the not so distant future, I will absolutely offer Workshops and Ongoing Classes.
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH… ?
I can help you with practically anything. Check out my “Services” page - and if for some reason I am unable to help, I will certainly do my best to send you in the right direction.
