Molly is so amazing! She's such a positive, friendly, and encouraging teacher. She really aims to try and make it as fun and with as much ease for the student as possible. She's very hands on, and teaches by example and exercises, and makes it very easy for beginner students to jump right in. Of course she could easily help advanced students with all her expertise, but she is so easy to sing in front of, even when it's a very personal and new thing! Highly recommended. A fun, positive teacher, wonderful person!

Having spent a lifetime on the stage in many roles, many capacities, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to all facets of performing; be it theater, television, film. While not subscribing to one particular "method", I stress "reacting, not acting", and believability of performance. All ages and experience levels have benefited from my approach. Whether a student is an aspiring actor, or a working actor sharpening their skills or prepping for an audition, I provide a solid foundation and practical, applicable knowledge and guidance.

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the ho

Acting is a natural form of exploration we see in children around the world. Imagination, pretending, imitation, mimicry, and character-play extending into the real world can create safety for expression and experimentation.

My playful approach to acting is based on 30 years of experience, a degree from Seattle’s premier BFA program, and five years’ studying playful human interaction with their environment. Applying it to scripts and performance is my particular delight.

Together we work to embody characters, enjoy making messes, and elevate human expression to its most entertaining form. We’ll borrow from improvisation and a variety of artistic disciplines. We’ll create something memorable, profound, and delightful together.

All ages and experience levels.

About Isaac

CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU Learning involves playfulness, curiosity, and personal connection. I've studied how people learn and how people play, along with 25 years of professional and performance experience, and I focus it entirely on you.

Isaac helped to distinguish the difference between creating art and copying which tapped a different side of drawing for me. Had a good session on training on seeing the tones of shades.

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 ...

About Luca

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!

Today during the class David was professional and very knowledgeable. So far he is well worth the investment and I look forward to having him teach my son more."

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …
