I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Where do I start, Mr. Walsh is an amazing coach and even better person. His classes extend beyond what he is teaching you, with life insights and showing you how to free your mind and be more positive on a daily basis.

I think everyone should take acting classes. Business people included. I am not saying business people should pretend to be someone else while they are in the office, negotiating a vendor contract, giving a presentation or managing their team (though I’ll get to these situations later). The study

About Mariana

Hello! I'm Mariana, My passion for teaching came from a professor of mine that I admired greatly.

Private Improv Acting Teacher

I am a trained character performer who studied at a wide variety of performance schools. These include The Second City, SF Comedy College, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Killing My Lobster. I was the youngest student to ever reach the advanced course at The Groundlings School of Sketch Comedy. After studying character comedy I began producing videos. This led to garnering over 750,000 followers on Vine, and over 6 million views on Youtube for my variety of one-of-a-kind characters.

I also have extensive work in television, stage, and immersive theatre. I directed, wrote, and starred in a series called Un Amor along with decorated actors such as Sean Astin, Seth Green, Tara Strong, E.G. Daily, Nyambi Nyambi, and Greg Cipes. I conceived a comedy troupe alongside actor Finn Wolfhard from Netflix’s Stranger Things and It, producing an audio sketch comedy album. I specialize in bringing out the best in each and every person who has a dream of performing.

I believe there is talent ...

Joe is a fantastic teacher. I felt instantly comfortable and open when we started working on my character studies. When he started breaking down the nuances and methods to get into character, I honestly felt like I unlocked something special, like a secret acting vault. I left feeling like my acting abilities were taken to the next level. His classes are super personalized and he helped me find my strengths and what makes me unique as a performer. I would totally recommend Joe!

I offer Acting training with three different types of focuses:

- Acting Lessons: If you are interested in the craft of acting and want to become a better artist I create a weekly/monthly lesson plan which will serve your unique needs. Lessons will be based around your experience level, your interests, and your end goal as a performer.

- Audition Coaching: Monologue/Scene/Side coaching for anything from a Community Theater audition to a callback for Chicago Fire. We will attack your audition material analytically, psychophysically, and psychologically.

- Industry Coaching: What does an agent do? How do I get noticed by a Casting Director? How can I get to perform in a Motion Picture? What type am I?
The focus of my Acting Industry Coaching is to expose the actors to all the industry tools and info that can make them successful. Explaining Unions, how a headshot can get you through the door, and how to figure out type, are what I focus on in these lessons.

About Daniil

Looking to become more confident? A better actor? Find a new agent? With over 10 years of industry experience as an Actor, Director, Artistic Director, and most importantly, educator, I help people from Ages 5 to 80 sharpen their craft, turn anxiety into self confidence, and own themselves so th

This was my first ever acting class and Dan has done a great job! He’s really made me understand how to put myself in the moment with repetition exercises. Very laid back and easy to work with but also professional. Would recommend to anyone looking to become a better actor.
Sophia
Daniil worked with me on preparing multiple callback sides, both classical and contemporary. He is the kind of coach that has the specificity and honesty to push you beyond what you thought you were capable of, and to open your eyes to a new way of seeing your work. Daniil was able to connect my early experience with Meisner training to the sides that I had in front of me, in a way that was challenging but not scary. I left the session with a new handful of tools to prepare for the upcoming callbacks, and a new perspective on what it meant to reach honesty and authenticity as an actor.
Emily
Dan is an incredible instructor. His keen eye and ability to coach is a true gift. Dan works in specificity, detail and nuance; I am always a better actor having worked with him. Dan is knowledgeable about the business and offers great advice on agents, managers, type and casting. I highly recommend Dan as an acting coach and a business coach.

"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."
