I have taken numerous studio classes on the particular style of acting required for film and television versus stage work. Do you want to get the call-back? How will you stand out from all of those actors in the casting director's waiting room that look just like you? Do you know what success looks like in the early stages of building your career? What should you be doing right now to prepare for your next on-camera audition? Are there exercises that you can do daily that will help you the next time you book an audition? What do the auditor's want; what do they expect? Do you even have an agent yet, because that is the only way you're getting through the casting director's door? Are there any jobs you should not take? The answer will surprise you on more than one of the above to be sure. Whether you are just beginning or have some experience under your belt; I can help. If you were Meryl Streep; I could help, but why would she be contacting me on TakeLessons.com?

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, wi

Very knowledgeable and personable. Able to communicate more complex concepts in an easy to understand manner.

First off. Just want to say that we had to cancel our first session. However, I really like this guy because he had kept it real and set it straight on the reason why the session was cancel. He was very sick that day and he didn't want to be involved with the session not being at 100%. Respect! I wouldn't have wanted him not being at his best either. Takes alot of guts for a person to confess that. I really appreciated the honesty because that explains how passionate Randy is about the craft.
Second of all, when we did our first session, I had to deal with a rough technical patch of trying g to join in for the session. He had no problem helping me with this technical glitch rather than allowing TakeLessons (who I was unable to reach because of matainace issues), to handle it. He helped 5he TakeLessons team. A plus Randy! Though I had to finally use another device to finally join the session, Randy was still willing to have patience and help me with the tech problem.
Lastly, Randy brought a warm feeling to the session and yet sincere. He made me feel welcomed, which opened me up more during this session. This helped because I am uncomfortable with improv but want to get better. He understood this and gave a real honest approach. Also, he informed me that we were going to get a gist of my performance level and work from there. Furthermore, we were going to ease our way into improvement. This gave me alot more balance than other improv classes. He is even willing to give me a little homework that I can practice in prep for next week.
Randy is very encouraging and I enjoyed our first session. I'm exited for next week!

Well organized yoga and conditioning lessons. Very patient with new students and strives to bring out the best from them.

Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

Confidence in acting is all about finding your own process, discovering the best things that work for YOU. Whether you have an audition you're working towards, a job you're preparing for, or you want to flex your acting muscle through new material, let's hash it out!

When I was cast as a supporting lead in an HBO show years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I came from a theatre background and had never been on a set before - I learned by watching and asking the actors around me who had been doing it for years. Now, after nearly a decade in this business, I've found some things that help me that can hopefully help you. This should be fun! Feel free to check out my IMDB page for a more detailed overview.

About Meg

I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied Acting and Music Theatre. I have spent nearly a decade working in theatre, TV, film, and commercials. Credits include: HBO's Boardwalk Empire, Peacock's Mr. Mercedes, NBC's Mysteries of Laura, ABC's Nashville, and FX's American Horror Story.

Meg so great! She has real experience in tv and knows what it is actually like in LA.
Gabe
Meg is really smart at this stuff. She helped me tape an audition and I was very proud of the final outcome. She is so good at rooting you in the circumstances of the story, and enriches your performance with basic questions such as "What just happened right before this?", "Is it cold outside?" Sounds simple but makes all the difference, especially to those of us who have done this acting thing for a while. A seasoned actor herself, she has the natural eye of a director. Coach with Meg!!
Sarah
I was prepping an audition with Meg - she really gets what a scene needs and knows how to help you tap into that within yourself. I kept reading the scene one way and she helped me see how the scene functioned as a part of the episode (it was for a guest star) and required a slight emotional tweak ... her work with me landed me a callback. I am so grateful for her insight and for making every minute fun.
