As an actor for 14 years who became an award-winning director and screenwriter, I have a particularly well-rounded perspective on acting. My belief is that anyone can act, if given the right tools, and I have a proven track record -- actors who work with me are presently booking major roles in film and television. My philosophy is that acting is about exploring yourself -- who you really are as a human being -- and having confidence in that unique individual's perspective on the character. We will also use my expertise on the other side of the camera to explore how to work with directors, as well as the writer's viewpoint on the larger story. I look forward to setting your talents loose on the world!

About Zach

My work as an acting coach speaks for itself. Just in the past several months alone, actors I work with have booked their first jobs as a recurring guest star in a primetime television series, a lead in a Lifetime movie, roles on two Netflix drama series, and a major guest star on an Amazon original

I've been teaching acting for several years and my students have gone on to pursue film, perform in community and school productions, gotten into college programs, and pursue careers in acting. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to perform a monologue and as time goes on you'll have a full repertoire of monologues and skills ready to go! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

I'm a working commercial actor and commercial acting coach that you see on TV. I am also a manager, producer, and former agent. I groom and prepare actors for work in Hollywood and I have been doing so for two decades. While many of my former students and clients are top commercial actors, TV and film stars, thousands more are professionals that work in every area of television and film. I grew up in Tyler, Texas, lived in Dallas, made my career in Los Angeles, and gained international celebrity status in London, England. After 30 amazing years in California, I have returned to work with actors all across my home state of Texas. I specialize in grooming and developing, starting careers, teaching on-screen techniques, and helping actors understand what it takes to make it in Hollywood. All acting styles have evolved, including commercials. Do you know how to create humor and believability? Do you know the role of the casting director, ad agency, AD, and director? I often hear from ...

About Addison

Since 1998, I've helped my clients break through the walls of Hollywood. I asked how does one live and survive in Hollywood as an actor and entertainer? That question took me on a journey that would change my life and the lives of people who have taken my advice. After investing in a $300.00 vide

Addison is an amazing teacher and actor, He is always true to himself and is adept at seeing potential in others he works with. I so admire him and his total work ethic. He's a perfect addition to whatever he chooses.
David Vega
The real deal. I have been acting all my life. Additionally, I have worked in Europe, the UK and the USA. When I moved to LA, I had the chance to study with Addison and it was absolutely worth it. Not only does he know how the industry really works but also, he has a deep understanding of character and script analysis. Addison is going to help you to discover the different layers that each role has. When it comes to auditions, working with Addison makes a difference. Believe me, you will be " ready to be ready" and focused. Finally, there is no doubt in my mind that Addison will help you to become the best actor you could possibly be and most importantly: to book acting jobs.

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.

"Dan helped me work on Meisner repetition and draw from direct emotional experience. This helped me make myself more vulnerable and move past my tics and defense mechanisms, allowing me to be more truthful and emotionally available onstage. He also helped me find monologues that fit my type and gave me great resources for marketing myself. In the words of the master himself, you gotta want it! And if you do, Dan is a great resource and mentor for all things acting."

"It's an amazing feeling when you find someone who is a master at the craft and can teach it too!

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors."

Actors often draw their audience in through strong and seemingly authentic emotions.  Perhaps you watched a particularly emotional scene in a movie or play and wondered to yourself whether or not the emotion the actor was showing was truthful.  Perhaps they were crying and you could see the tears falling.  Are those real tears?  The answer is, probably, yes.
