Lessons / Coaching
Got a big audition coming up? College Auditions around the corner?
Need new songs or monologues for your audition binder but you can't find the perfect pieces, or figure out the best cut?
Want an acting class specifically focused on your strengths and weaknesses, designed to enhance your strengths and focus on areas that could use improvement? No two actors are alike, what works for one actor, doesn't connect with another. As a coach, I am going to start by learning about you, your process (even if you don't have one yet) and tailor my coaching to help you define and perfect your personal acting process.
Mike offers 1-on-1 Acting, Voice, and Rep Coaching Online or at From Stage to Screen Acting Studio in Highland, NY or Online over Zoom! In addition to my 18+ years as an acting teacher, I have been in over 100 productions over the course of my life time and directed over 30 as well. I have trained Voice and Acting for many years in New York City under NYU Steinhardt, Weist-Baron, Bob Marks, Samuel E. Wright, Bob Luke, and Glenn Alterman, to name a few.
