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.
My method of mentoring & directing theatrical performance and comedy is really dependent on the student and where they are at. I believe in a collaborative approach, developing skills, confidence and shaping performance through an exchange of ideas and a process of experimentation.
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.
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 specialize in teaching the American tradition of Lee Strasberg's sensory exercises, Uta Hagan, Meisner and the Russian tradition of Stanislavski
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 am a working Entertainer with first hand experience in the Performing Arts Industry, currently studying an Advanced Diploma in Music Theatre to further broaden my knowledge and personal skills, to then inspire and educate others.
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 classes vary depending on what I'm teaching. If it is Acting on Screen I will have my students do a lot of on screen work allowing time for evaluation and reflection. Stand Up Comedy would involve watching other comedians then allowing time to teach/create how to write and deliver an A grade performance.
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.
I will bassing my classes for University or school students. these private lessons will be to help the student prepare for any auditions coming up or go over any assesments. i can help with written script for assessments and can help prefect any performances the students needs help with.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My approach to acting is no nonsense, down to earth and practical. I believe there are no secrets, only good principles. For most actors it's about being reminded of what they already know, and working with people to keep them moving forward.
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.
I base my classes on the Eric Morris method of irreverent acting combined with the Stanislavski Method. I also implement Kristin Linklater's and Cecily Berry exercises regarding freeing the voice of the actor and realising the actors vocal potential. All of which have a high focus on mindfulness throughout the lesson.
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.
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.
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.
