After a long time of searching for an acting coach, I finally met Darius.

His coaching approach is very unique and truly changed my career and skill as an actor. He has a depth of knowledge and is very caring.

I highly recommend Darius.
Jordyn
Taking classes with Darius was tons of fun. Helped me through a few problems with a monologue I needed to learn and helped add another layer to it that I didn't even think of. I definitely recommend taking one of his classes as it'll help you reach into whatever piece you're working on and draw out something new for your character work and overall understanding of the play/film/show. if you're wondering whether you should do it or not, I say, take the class! In the long run, you'll be grateful for the help.

I give acting lessons and coaching in all aspects of acting, based in the celebrated Meisner Technique, which I've taught for over 30 years. I teach a full technique program for those who want to study the whole system which includes, improvisation, scene work and character work, cold readings, monologue development and much much more. For those who already have experience or are professional actors I offer high-level coaching, taking your auditions to the next level, and working with you on your current scripts and projects to magnify your focus, intentions and behaviors so that you can sharpen your performances to the highest degree. I am experienced in theater, film, tv and commercial work, and have tailored techniques for all of these areas. I've refined cold reading technique so that you can quickly break down a script into essentials and win roles, or even go in completely cold and work super-effectively directly off the script. Super-sharp script breakdowns for film roles,

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.

I've never seen an acting coach simplistically break down technique for me to understand the way David did. I am so greatful he has shared his knowledge that must have taken years to master with me."

"Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed."
