Acting Coaching and Drama School Audition Preparation

I am an actor and theatre producer with 7 years experience in the industry. I have attended 2 of the UK's more prestigious Drama schools and 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.

Acting is a variety of opportunities: it's playful, as an actor you can work in different fields, theatre, film, voice-over and radio. I can help you to grow and be confident to get into the acting school or into work. Furthermore, I can teach you how to be able to work independently on a role.

Acting Session for general brushing up of skills or monologue help for auditions/drama school prep
If you would like a session to brush up on your skills we can discuss what that is and go from there. If you are wanting monologue help for drama school auditions we will look at both or one of your speech options, breaking it down to get to the bottom of what the character wants from the speech; why they’re needing to say this monologue and their relationship with who they’re talking to/about. This and many other things. Being on the audition panel for Rose Bruford for 3 years I feel I am a great source to help you on your way to get into drama school!

Acting Coach for LAMDA, Auditions or just for fun!
I specialise in tutoring Acting and Performance for students of all ages and levels. I have worked in the industry for over 5 years and have successfully trained actors from school ages (E.g. LAMDA exams - all of whom have passed with Distinction) to adult learners who wish to expand their skills. My classes will be adapted to your requirements, but will generally involve warm-up exercises, physical and vocal technique and, usually, we will together on a script, to allow you to engage with different characters. I also run masterclasses in audition technique, clowning, mime and physical theatre.

Carlo
SINGING CLASS: My methodology is mostly CVT (complete vocal technique), understand the voice, understand what to do with it!
My methodology is mostly CVT (complete vocal technique), understand the voice, understand what to do with it without too many imaginations and sensations but with practical examples that find an immediate realization, understand how the diaphragm works and find the right support, learn the technique to get your muscles used to it and then not having to think and sing freely! As for interpretation, I base myself on the MTP (Musical Theater Performance) technique generally used on Broadway and London: to be very specific and to tell a story, a moment, a state, a character while singing! I am a singer who graduated from the SDM in Milan, I give technical lessons to be able to sing more simply without too many constraints, help to open the sound and be confident with it: be more aware of your voice, your instrument and what you can do with it! For those who want, we can also do a job on the lyrics for a good interpretation (MTP: Musical theater performance) since I am also an actor. I’m constantly on stage between Italy, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland with many musicals, from Hair to Dirty Dancing, from Sister Act to Peter Pan, events with exponents such as Andrea Bocelli and Edoardo Bennato. I hope to be useful and share my technique and experience with you!

Dominik
Acting lessons, filming preparation & audition training
You don't feel like playing superficial anymore. Would you like to immerse yourself in the emotional world of the role and do so with ease, joy of playing and without suffering? Then you are right with me. I graduated with honors from the University of the Arts in 2011 and have been in business for several years. My pupils are represented on stages and on TV in German-speaking countries (Berliner Ensemble, Stage Entertainment, Soko, Lindenstrasse), have been admitted to drama schools (Ernst Busch, HMT Rostock), or work as directors and speakers. My concern is to respond to your specific questions and problems, to awaken your artistic potential, to motivate you in your challenges, but above all to provide technology with a lot of empathy and love for art. (At least that's what my students say;)) If you would like to know more about me and my work, do not hesitate to write to me directly or take a look at my homepage:

Lawrence
Singing lessons in English for all levels by professional voice teacher, vocal coach and singer
I'm a former New York City voice teacher/coach, professional singer and an award winning composer who has relocated to Berlin. I've taught with the most reputable children's musical theatre organizations in NYC (TADA!, Brooklyn Children's Theatre, The Neighborhood Playhouse) with students of all ages as well as private students and I've worked with Broadway stars such as Laura Osnes, Karen Mason and Ron Bohmer, who have also recorded my music, and I'm excited to bring my 20 yrs of teaching experience to Berlin! I teach songwriting as well, if that is something you're interested in. I'm a classically trained singer who performed with the San Francisco Opera and other companies both in opera and musical theatre for many years. Though I specialize now in musical theatre, I am happy and comfortable teaching you to sing in whatever style you prefer. The basics are the same! In our lessons, we will work on breath, correct vowel pronunciation, placement, diction, etc... as well as getting rid of the tension and habits that keep us from singing freely and beautifully. We will also work on the musical and dramatic aspects of the material we choose together, so that you will feel comfortable at an audition or a performance. And I keep lessons fun so that you can both learn and progress each week AND enjoy yourself! Whether just starting out or a professional who needs help working on an audition or role, I can help you reach your goals!

Singing, Public Speaking and Vocal Confidence - from Classical to Pop & Shakespeare to Game of Thrones
Vocal confidence is crucial in every walk of life, and singing is a fantastic way to boost it. Each voice is unique and should be both heard and celebrated. These classes are designed to encourage pupils to release themselves from the pressures that often come with singing, acting and public speaking, allowing the individual to find confidence in their own voice. My work is applicable to singing, acting monologues and public speaking so, whatever your focus, I can draw on years of experience and tuition to help. I am a very experienced singer and musician, who trained in Acting at the prestigious Arts Ed, London. My main aim is to build on a pupil's passion and own interests, prioritising an enjoyable, tailored approach to learning.
