I believe practical teaching is the key to success. You will not train your brain by just reading (although it does help to an extent), you need to put your work into practise. I also believe watching others perform or create in front of each other and listen to the corrections others gets, helps build a stronger performer.
We begin by establishing true connection as our foundation....in our student-teacher relationship as we share the experience we each bring to the table. Learning is symbiotic. We then commence the reconnection to our body and it’s intelligence with the assistance of: The Gentle Breath Meditation & Body Awareness exercises.
I pride myself on taking a kind, conscientious, and practical approach to guiding students through their studies. I wish to understand each student's individual strengths and goals, in order to create a personalized learning path.
I'm a big fan of student led learning, eg. following students passions and slipping in the 'nuts and bolts' once they are sufficiently hooked, employing a range of theatre games, movement and mime. We run through the basics of improvisation such as 'making an offer', 'yielding', 'building on an offer', and much more.
As a theatrical actor and director, my main approach to students is giving them a fundamental grounding in traditional methodology. I am familiar with the works of Stanislavski as well a Grotowski and Arteau. My area of interest centres around Physical Theatre, namely Stage Combat.
My teaching methods and styles are mostly interactive, upbeat and demonstrative. However they are catered specifically to my students and their individual needs. In all this, I do not loose focus of the lesson objective, and am clear in reiterating the importance of this objective to the students.
My teaching methodology is to help the student in areas they need support in. These areas could be: auditions, scenes, monologues, rehearsals etc. I believe that we all learn in different ways and have a holistic approach to performance, I believe a strong connection with mind/body helps immensely in confidence and acting ability.
I approach tutoring by treating my students not as a child, but as a person with their own interests and skills. The main reason I didn't become a teacher is because I know how the education system fails the majority of students. I want to work with people to enhance their abilities in a way that works for them. This makes them more inclined to learn, as well as enjoying the subject.
My methodology when it comes to acting is being self centered and teaching my students how to achieve that. I am also very specific and constructive when it come to performance criticism. I give my students room to understand where they see themselves in the character they are playing and ways in which they can realistically bring that character and emotion to life.
My teaching methodology would consist of going through the basics of acting, building confidence and trust within the group. I want to build up the skills set of the actors so they are able to read, act and analyse different scripts. I want to create a safe space for students to express themselves creatively through their acting lessons with me.
My approach to teaching starts with the student understanding of the craft and understanding of self through physical exercises and techniques (starting with the voice) - Understanding of self is vital in the process of finding your theatrical 'truth' and developing your fluidity and confidence as an actor and acting student.
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.
I approach each topic by ensuring there are physical elements. The best way to learn is to get involved and do something... and have fun while doing it too. I try to get everyone up and moving and work on boosting confidence.
Drama, isn't about me telling you what to do. It's about you exploring what your capable of. I help students understand the fundamentals of drama, and push them to their limits. So they can produce the work they want to create.
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.
I work through visual tools and improvisational games that gives you the agency to reach your aim your way. I normally devise work in groups of three at least, but have worked with individuals in private rehearsal sessions. Golden rule is less is more.
My teaching method will depend entirely on what you're after. I believe in adaptability in achieving goals and problem solving, which means I can tailor make the sessions to what I feel will reward you with the most satisfying results.
Performing Arts is all about passion and creative self-expression: subsequently, the education process designed to deliver it must be - above all - an enjoyable and personal experience. I have this passion, and the ability to make it contagious.
As an experienced teacher and lecturer, Chad teaches a range of performance based courses and workshops: acting ( stage and screen), performance, improvisation, movement, , directing, devising, theatre and applied drama.
I believe in bringing the most out of my students through what they already possess within. Acting can be big, it can be theatrical, it can be Hollywood. I also believe acting can be subtle, natural, and approached in a way that embraces what you already harness within.
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.
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.
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.
My teaching method is tailored to each students type of learning. Be it visual, auditory or tactile, I can tailor my lessons to the student. I also want to build up my students and nurture an environment where they feel comfortable to grow, ask questions and fail.
I am able to teach all major styles of theatre including: Greek and Shakespearean, Epic, Absurdist, Australian Gothic, Realism, Melodrama, Musical Theatre, Improvisation and Commedia del Arte. I also enjoy working with beginners who want to explore acting and theatre as a personal interest, to refine their skills in scripted drama.
