I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

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!

Carole is a shining light in my creative life as an actress/singer and I recommend her highly. Class begins with an inspirational quote and group check-in which encourages an immediate vulnerability and tenderness in the work that ensues. She is funny and dear, and a most humble music theatre icon. She sows the seeds of depth, compassion, and discipline in the most beautifully humane way! Don't miss an opportunity to work with Carole.

"I have always had a whimsical imagination along with a tendency to "think funny". As a younger man I have experimented with stand up comedy. The writing process I really enjoyed. The performance part always felt dreadful. The main problem, I think, was my proclivity towards over analyzing. I was comfortable "up in my head" and usually avoided living "in the moment". For me "flowing" was a private matter, not social.

My ultimate "dream come true" would be to have the opportunity to be part of a comedic writer's group. Imagine being part of Sid Caesar's writing sessions with Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner et al! How I would have loved to be part of that community!

Now I live in an "active retirement community". None of those comedy dreams have come to pass.

One night (after watching a marathon portion of The Kaminsky Method on Netflix) I felt ready to explore my own creative potential for the theater community. I found "Take Lessons" online, and saw that Jeremy had devoted years accumulating both academic and practical experience in the world of performing arts.

My own private hope was that if I could somehow connect the art with the craft, and thereby discover ways to both overcome what blocked me and at the same time have fun, then I might open the possibility of unlocking a medium of expression for my own imagination, and thereby find some means of participating with other kindred spirits in theatrical projects.


Jeremy agreed to meet me where I was at. He was willing to custom tailor his lessons to my own idiosyncratic needs. We agreed to one class a week with a ten week commitment. After every one hour class I have a whole week to process what we have opened up in the previous session.


After my third lesson I find that Jeremy's flexibility and personal attention has provided me with the freedom to participate in structuring my own advanced learning experience. I have already, with just two private lessons, produced two short scripts by transcribing our recorded online improvisations. I don't know yet how others will respond to these skits. I think they are both funny.

Perhaps one of the amateur theater groups here in the retirement community will be interested in producing my skits as a montage. Then I can observe how my words come across to an audience. Believe me when I say I appreciate how rare and valuable such an experience is. As any mature artist will tell you, our culture is sorely lacking in places to try things out, especially when your creations are likely to bomb.

Honestly, I don't know anywhere else I could have found such a unique opportunity. Jeremy is knowledgeable, understanding and supportive. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any kind of performing art."
