* private coaching/taping session at my home studio.
Your child will come away with 1-2 monologues in digital form ready to submit online.

$325 (via venmo, paypal, cash or check) includes final taping. This is a great option for artistic & community support at a lower $ than private coaching.
I bring 30 years of acting/directing experience plus 20 years as an acting coach to my nurturing, empowering, & fun approach to the craft.

Most guest stars require one hour, many co-stars can be coached in a half-hour session. If we are also taping your scene, this will take a little longer!
I accept cash, check, venmo, or credit/debit via paypal
10% discount for cash clients
I coach/tape in my home studio in Highland Park or via Zoom/Facetime. If coming in person, bring two copies of your sides (email in advance if possible).
My approach is practical and hands-on. We will focus on:
Story - We will explore what your character is doing in the scene and what role you play in the story.
Script Breakdown - We will break the scene into specific actionable beats.
Blocking - For the camera, the slightest movements can make a huge difference. We will explore blocking that suits your scene arc and address things like whether to sit or stand, to mime or not to mime, eyelines, etc.
Confidence - We will find the emotional touchstones that will help you to feel relaxed in the room and excited to share your work.
With 20 years of experience as a working SAG actor, I know what you are up against and how it feels to be in an audition room. I still audition every day!
As a director of film/TV/theater, I bring a director’s perspective to my coaching. I can help you understand your role as part of the story and how you can bring yourself to the role while still fulfilling the needs of the larger piece.
* I work with a lot of kids, and have a fun and interactive approach for your kiddos :)
