Acting Coaching and Drama School Audition Preparation

I am an actor and theatre producer with 8 years experience in the industry working in Theatre, Film and TV including The Royal Shakespeare Company and Channel 4 . I have attended 2 of the UK's most prestigious Drama schools and I have a strong knowledge of both Shakespeare and Contemporary plays.
Every drama school in the UK has a different experience, common do's and don'ts and over used speeches.
I will help you find new audition monologues, talk you through the process of applying to drama schools in the UK. The experience of each different one and prepare you for the auditions. Help you find the truth in the speech and curb bad habits so you can stand out in a competitive audition process.

About Me

I'm a Actor and Producer from London.
Personable and fun but straight talking. We will spend the first few sessions experimenting and trying out lots of different monologues to find one that you really love and what suits you. Then I suggest semi regular sessions up until your audition date for fine tuning.

Auditions can be scary and my aim is to make you as confident and comfortable as possible by letting you know exactly what to expect, prepping you with a monologue that you love and giving you all the tools to know how to do a great audition.

CINEMA, ACTING, IMPROVISATION WORKSHOPS - - -
These sessions allow the development of skills and knowledge of the trade, with the game facing the camera, familiarization with the audiovisual environment and the camera tool, in the art of acting. Your inventiveness and your uniqueness being at the center of your training, it is a question of dwelling on the objective criteria, such as the voice, the use of the body, the relationship with the partner, the capacity to occupy the space. But it is also the singularity and the commitment that are decisive. The objective of this training is to be able to: - Analyze and dissect a text - Create, develop and embody a character - Understand the artistic and technical writings of a film or a play - Create, cultivate and develop one's artistic identity and singularity (...) Through simulations and role-playing, the association between theory and practice makes it possible to achieve its objectives. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions, for which you have asked me, also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). Indeed, they have the advantage of face-to-face sessions (ex: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (ex: the entire session transcribed in writing on the chat). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. - As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round. THE TRAINER From a Grande Ecole post-preparatory class in France & Ivy League University in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 14 years in the field, in international establishments, intervening in forums and conferences. CONTACT / PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

✅IMPROVISATION, CREATIVITY, PUBLIC SPEAKING, COMMUNICATION, THEATRALIZATION: A WHOLE SUBTLE UNIVERSE TO EXPLORE (THE ART OF STORYTELLING...)
✓ Improvisation is the art of composing within the framework of a role play, without being overplayed so as not to lose credibility, by taking pleasure and appearing convinced (because communication does not consist, for example, of having confidence, but of appearing confident). It helps with a wide range of skills (imagination, emotional faculties, physical expressiveness, vocal projection, clarity of speech, interpretation, improvisation, observation, emulation, stage combat...) to make public speaking, communication , the theatricalization enhanced by the stage space and the play of the actor - improviser. ✓ Your inventiveness, singularity, commitment and signature being at the center of this training, it is about giving you the techniques to improvise, create, stage, while showing confidence and conviction to your interlocutors, in the private sphere or of the professional. ✓ So how can you also confront your shyness or lack of (relative) self-confidence by surpassing yourself by moving forward? ➤ Express yourself with your body, your emotions, your ideas to mobilize your abilities and your creative energy ➤ Explore your path to personal expression in complete freedom and security by overcoming your fears of expressing yourself in public ➤ Activate flexibility of mind, particularly by practicing active listening ➤ Develop your creativity and imagination while overcoming your shyness, developing your speaking, listening and responding skills ➤ Anchor lasting resources such as letting go, leaving one's comfort zone thanks to a caring framework and personalized modules/exercises In application: For example, awareness raising and introduction to the Art of Storytelling have several objectives: Storytelling in public, Composing a repertoire of stories, Organizing a collective show, Games and bringing emotions into play (...). These theoretical training and practical training sessions (story structure, voice, memory, diction, management of stage fright, etc.). It is a question of going through the history of the tale (origin, different styles of tale, difference between tale and story), the art of telling (work on the voice, the body, the imagination), the tale and the child (importance of the story for the overall development of the child, resource of the imagination, difference between reading and telling) ...: in short, the intention of this course is to make you want even more, to better tell stories Open to all those interested in the story (parents, teachers, animators, educators ...), these sessions can also be offered to the person of your choice. With the program, for this example of storytelling art in particular: ✓ Explore and experience the art of storytelling and discover its hidden sides ✓ Express yourself with your body, your emotions, your ideas, play with situations (...) ✓ Mobilize your capacities and creative energy ✓ Open interior spaces of reverie ✓ Explore your path of personal expression in complete freedom and security ✓ Overcome your fear of public speaking ✓ Make room for your imagination, Develop your creativity ✓ Activate flexibility of mind, Practice active listening ✓ Cooperate, create, play down The art of storytelling therefore allows you to develop your creativity and imagination, because you are both a director and an actor. It also allows you to overcome shyness and develop speaking, listening and responding skills. Each person evolves at their own pace and uses their sense of creativity. Objective: to anchor sustainable resources such as letting go, creativity, presence or self-confidence. In short, this artistic discipline will accompany you in your personal development and will help you get out of your comfort zone thanks to a benevolent environment and playful exercises. THE TRAINER With training from a Grande Ecole post-European preparatory class & an Ivy League university in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 18 years in the field, in international establishments, speaking in forums and conferences. ➤ PLACE, TIMETABLE, PRICES ✓ Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Fribourg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Basel-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon. But currently, these sessions continue to be offered by videoconference in the current context and in accordance with general demand which is almost unanimous on this subject. ✓ Indeed, apart from the classic advantages of videoconferencing (time saving related to travel & their unforeseen events, eco-responsibility, increased schedule flexibility, etc.), the quality of the session & the interaction remain identical. In addition, the entire exchange, notes and recommendations are immediately transcribed on the dedicated chat. ✓ To support us among ourselves & to be pleasant to you in this sustainable / particular period and in a spirit of solidarity, the fees are temporarily reduced and will not increase after the start of our sessions. ✓ Languages: French/English. ✓ The progress following these private sessions is perceptible from 1 to 2 sessions (*2024 study). ✓ As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round. CONTACT / PROGRAM ✓ A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Every actor is unique and every session will be tailored to your individual needs. What I bring is an enthusiasm and experience of acting in front of a camera. After an initial one hour session to get to know each other and learn what you want to achieve, I will devise a lesson plan exclusively for you. We will work remotely on whatever you are comfortable with. Be it rehearsing a self-tape for audition purposes, creating and devising a new idea for screen, or developing skills for acting in front of the camera, we will reach your goals. I'm very focused on the individual. This will all be about you. If you are a beginner we can start with basic technique and take an exciting journey together to fulfillyour potential. If you are experienced, we can polish your skills with the use of an outside eye. Learning new techniques to add to your skill set. If you are a professional actor needing help with preparation for self-tapes, I can rehearse with you and offer helpful direction. I will also record with you if required. I've had a varied career working with great directors, Steven Speilberg and Christopher Nolan and screen greats such as Tom Hanks. As a teacher and colleague you are casting me. Look me up.

Drama skills: acting, storytelling, public speaking, text analysis, writing
Studying for an audition and want some help working on monologues or duologues? Wanting to induce a more dramatic performance in to your song? Interested in how drama skills can help your public speaking/presentation and communication skills? Or just generally curious about anything drama or acting related - whether it's about analysing a text, writing your own script or delving more into any of the many methods you can use to develop your skills as an actor an performer? Then I might be able to help you! I'm a professional actor, trained at Cygnet Theatre in Exeter, now living in London. I have extensive experience performing in immersive theatre - communicating, catching and holding the attention of a wide variety of people. I also have experience in storytelling, working with and teaching children of all ages, as well as writing and producing theatre. Starting drama classes as a teenager was one of the most important things I ever did. It help me build confidence, develop empathy and ground me as the person I am today. I love performing and creating experiences for my audience - watching their faces as they're surprised, entertained or disgusted by the stories I tell. But just as important as that is the opportunity to share some of the tools I learned from drama school with other people - tools that can be used every day in communication, emotional regulation and play. I am more than happy to tailor classes to your specific needs, so if you think I can help you out, get in touch and we will talk!
