For me as an actor, the benefit of a great coach or director has always been that they've helped me reach places in my work I couldn't have achieved on my own. As a coach myself, I'm most thrilled by those small (or monumental!) breakthroughs that my students and I discover together during the coaching process. The cool thing is that I've found the progress my students make in their craft will often inspire me to new heights in my own. (A bonus to already enriching work)!

If you want to develop new material for upcoming auditions, hone and refresh (or completely change) your monologues, or simply work on the craft of acting, I can help. I work to gear your coaching sessions to the goals you need to achieve, offering an experience created around what you need to work on and want to learn.

With a BFA in Acting and Directing, an MFA in Classical Acting, and over 20 years of professional acting experience in the theatre and on-camera, I can offer tools for your tool belt ...

I specialize in coaching actors for auditions for film, television, agents, casting directors, theatrical performances or drama schools. Whether you are starting out on your journey as an actor or already have extensive experience, together we will make your audition distinctive. You may need one or two sessions to prepare for a self tape, or to work over an extended time to craft a role for film or theater. I will be there, in your corner, to help you focus your creativity and be successful.

I will help you define the specific situation of your character; and ask you provocative questions to help you journey deeply into the role. We will find the key to tapping into your own life experience to bring the role to life. In addition, I can give you tips on setting up your home studio.

The industry has changed dramatically in the past two years. SELF TAPING your auditions and submitting the digital media to casting directors, agents and film producers has become the new ...

I do Stand-Up Comedy in midtown Manhattan and elsewhere. John has been a tremendous help to me as a coach. I continually schedule sessions with him, especially when I am developing a new routine or bringing back an older routine.
We work on two areas: Delivery and substance.
I find John’s experience as an actor invaluable in helping me develop the delivery of my routine. He advises me on pacing and on attitude – crucial in Stand-Up.
I also ask John for his opinions regarding the substance of my routines - structure and contents. It’s very important in Stand-Up to have drama and clear organization. John’s comments are always on-target and have helped me greatly.
John has provided me with a safe forum where I can present my material to him in rehearsal mode. He asks thoughtful questions which lead me to improve my routines so they will have a greater impact on the imaginations of the members of my audience.
It is a pleasure to recommend John. I recommend him highly.
Raissa
John is fantastic to work with! He gets you to ask the right questions to get to the heart of a scene and of your character. He is incredibly intuitive and drawing from his experience as an actor and a director he creates a collaborative atmosphere that helps your creativity flourish!
Becca
John is such a great coach and teacher! He coached me for my upcoming play. John created such a safe environment, asked so many thought provoking questions, challenged me, provided innovative ideas, and gave me great insight into my character development. He is extremely professional, always very prepared for our sessions, and gives very helpful feedback. He always goes above and beyond. It is very evident that he is so passionate about our work and about helping me grow. I always feel so comfortable and encouraged in our coachings. I would absolutely recommend John as an acting coach and teacher!

Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

I am a music teacher and I am very picky about who my son takes lessons with because I can tell right away if someone knows what they are doing. I could tell from the first lesson that Tanya was knowledgeable and she cared about giving good instruction. Tanya does not dumb down the material; she makes the student work. Nevertheless, my son is very happy with his lessons and tells all his friends how much fun he is having! The balance between discipline and fun is difficult to achieve but Tanya does it effortlessly. Kudos!

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’. For those who don’t know, stage directions are,  “an instruction in the text of a play, especially one indicating the movement, position, or tone of an actor.” Stage directions can also be instructions for the director, such as the way the stage should be lit or what kind of sound effect could be used.  Stage directions can also tell an actor how to deliver a line— pace of speech, emot …
