I employ a mixed methodology, curated from my VCA training and my wide experience. Given my unique background in academics, I am analytical about my approach, and keep it grounded in practical techniques that I firmly believe are the most effective.
I specialize in teaching the American tradition of Lee Strasberg's sensory exercises, Uta Hagan, Meisner and the Russian tradition of Stanislavski
I base my methodology on a combination of warming up and practical work, however, above all I encourage a safe working environment to create and explore above any technical coaching ideals. Depending on age. Ages 7 - 12 -Tension release, preparing the voice with aeroplane/ motorbike warm ups.
My method of teaching is tailored for each student depending on what they are needing to achieve or are working towards. After discussing with the student their goals, lesson plans will be made including exercises, practices, feed back and things to continue working on. I believe that everyone should have a goal of some sorts and I pride myself on assisting my students to reach it.
As an outgoing, energetic and bubbly person I try my absolute best to get my students excited and engaged with the content I am teaching. I think that it is important that students actually WANT to better their learning in order to do so successfully.
Practical Aesthetics Developed by actor William H. Macy and playwright David Mamet, this analytical approach emphasizes the simple pursuit of an action above all else. Actors’ attention goes to text-analysis, script work, and a literal understanding of a scene’s driving events.
I base my teaching on you, who you are, what you are trying to do and how to get there with a feeling of mastery, pride and self worth. With discussions, reflections, questionnaires, artistic responses and full emotional engagement you will be focusing on transforming yourself into roles required for your success.
The lesson is always progressive, starting about the general requirements for auditions, focusing further down on the character development and the script breakdown. In general, one would pick a scene to perform and the scene will be analysed and recommendations will be made upon the improvement of the performance.
Lessons differ depending on the student's needs.
My lessons are for the absolute beginner - to the more experienced who need to be considered for more work by their agents... My lessons are for the absolute beginner - to the more experienced who need to be considered for more work by their agents...
My teaching method is catered to individual students, and/or groups of students who wish to explore their own ability to make and create works. My philosophy involves research and development, with a thorough exploration as to how they intersect, and how one can influence the other.
My teaching methodology is to make my students as comfortable as they can be through guiding them into a world of their own. using drama students are able to express themselves in an environment which is most comfortable for them.
My teaching method is making sure children have fun while simultaneously gaining some insight into what they are being taught. Children's mind are malleable so giving the teaching practices some variety ensures to fully grab their attention and keep it for an extended length of time.
This is the place where you'll be pushed to be the best version of yourself The main objective of our classes is to teach you how to develop the Artist within, your creativity, your imagination, your sensibility. To be resilient, generous, curious, kind. To be fearless to be yourself. Acting is an Art Form which is about communicating the truth of your being.
My classes are filled with learning and building your talent whilst being very enjoyable. Depending on the student, my class structure can focus on one or more areas of acting, alternatively the class can cover all areas of acting with the lesson being less specialised. Classes are available for all ages and experience levels.
I encourage my students to discover themselves, to find their voices, and become the best communicators possible. It is fully hands-on, and participatory though no student is ever made to do anything they are unwilling to try. Many are shy and through drama games, voice techniques, dress-ups and improv they develop self-confidence, creativity and imagination.
My approach is creative and student centered. I aim to encourage my students to develop independence and critical thinking in their approach to their performance process. Lessons involve a warm up, main theme and wind down activity. Fun and interactive.
I believe acting is learnt through practical methods. While the theory is necessary and important, most acting is learnt through experimenting with movements, expressions, and imagination. I love to see students come alive in doing something they love and are committed to.
I approach the idea of teaching a little bit differently to most. I am far more interested in building on, extending and developing the individual talents of young actors rather than being a mere teacher. I work one on one to achieve the absolute best out of each of my artists.
My method of teaching is based on Stanislavsky method.Stanislavski developed the technique in the early 1900s and they have been used ever since to help actors create believable emotions and actions in the characters they portray. Stanislavski method acting is basically in seven steps, these techniques where developed to help actors to build beliveable characters.
First and most importantly is the style of actor you want to be, once we go from there we can build on that idea. I have been in a great variety of productions and have had to practice many different acting styles from children's theater to Shakespeare, knowing when to be comedic and how much comedy is needed at the given moment and when to be dramatic.
My style of teaching changes depending on the age, groups size and individual(s). Different things work for different students and different students will require different outcomes. My formalised experience is primarily with High School students but I have worked with younger students on a volunteer basis.
I work collaboratively with students, focusing on a teacher-led interactive methodology that prioritizes process driven character development, internalization, physicality and developing a strong understanding of creative practitioners and cultural theory.
I I believe that theater arts is an expression of our creativity of our own minds and hearts and it is the very root of our ability to learn and to become whatever may be. To me, theater is the process of new combinations for new things, new forms of expression, new inventions and new situations.
When I teach and/or tutor any subject the first thing I find out is what the student/students actually know and can already do. The next step is to focus on understanding the questions they are required to answer. Then we build on prior knowledge, explore the topic and follow a plan to complete the required tasks/assignments.
Any teaching methods I present are based off what I have gone through and either works for me, or I feel will work for a student. However, what I do with them is based off what I think they need to work on, or what they ask to work on.
Who do you want to be? Why? Instead you can be a ghost. Learn how to observe the relationship of spirit and decay, and harness the forces that bind us together. A new style of time management guaranteed to dazzle and mystify.
Will go over scene work, and how to analyse a script. Can be flexible on lesson structure. So either a new script every lesson or perfecting one. Will also part knowledge regarding voice warm ups and techniques to get into character. Will also go over audition techniques and lessons.
My teaching method is mainly based on the 'Eric Morris technique' (the method I trained in for three years). I also touch on Meisner, Mamet, Stanislavski and Brecht, however, as a creative person I believe it is vital to explore contrasting approaches and in doing so, discover our own unique process that works for us. Together, we'll take a scene and explore it from all angles.
I cover a range of acting, voice and movement methods based on your learning needs. Lessons to fit any level are both fun and challenging.
