Monica is a treasure! My 10 year old son and I think she is fun and she helps him understand how to execute his lines. I love her upbeat attitude and her knowledge of the acting industry. She puts her all in her time with my kiddo and cares about making sure he succeeds. I am so glad we found her.
Nathania
She was very nice and encouraging. She made me feel more confident in my voice and helped me project my voice better. I will definitely take more lessons with her!

I LOVE coaching actors, it can make the difference between being good and getting the job. Just recently, my client Eurydice El-Etr booked a recurring role in a tv series with Josh Hartnett. We worked together on her audition AND on her performance that got her ecstatic feedback from the producers and director.

I believe the best teacher is one who is also working in the field.

I have worked consistently as an actor, starring alongside Susan Sarandon in 'Ace the Case", with Billy Zane in the upcoming "Waltzing with Brando", with Ray Liotta in "Syndrome K", or being the voice of all audiobooks from Disney Pixar's "Luca", and booking roles in "Gotham" and "Red Dead Redemption II". I just wrapped shooting a big role in the upcoming "The Gods II- The Dark Side", directed by Mykel Shannon Jenkins.

I was part of the faculty of the Susan Batson Studio in New York for eight years, before moving to Los Angeles. I am an expert in audition and on-camera technique, script analysis and ...

Luca is very genuine and sincerely wants his students to succeed. His vast knowledge and experience come in to play an integral role when he is teaching. I was really appreciative of his sharing of his own know-hows that may help catapult my audition process.
Eurydice
Luca is one of the greatest coaches I’ve worked with. His insights are penetrating, he definitely knows how to read and breakdown a scene or a script, and he uses both instinct and intelligence, logic and sensory to immerse you into a situation and guide you towards a character. I've prepared various auditions and a part for a British series with him, and I couldn't recommend you enough to work with this great coach, who is also a beautiful and immensely generous person.
Federica
I was looking for a professional support to improve my acting skills and I found in Luca the best coach ever.

Luca has a natural talent to connect with others and feel exactly what you need.
With his great intuition and preparation he was able to help me to reach my goals providing a lot of tips and tricks during the session.
I am grateful I found a wonderful human being and coach like him and I can't wait to work with him again.
Thank you very much coach!

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!

"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."
