I'm a BFA graduate from Pace University in New York, well versed in classical texts as well as modern, contemporary, and post modern. Training includes Stanislavski, Meissner, Adler, Hagen, and LeCoq. Lessons will mostly relate to Michael Schurtleff's "Audition: Everything an Actor needs to Know to get the Part" and Stanislavski's "An Actor Prepares" as well as various plays and film scripts.
My manifesto as an artist is "Every story is a story worth telling." That's what I was taught through the actions of my mentors, and I plan on telling an abundance of stories, additionally if I can help a less experienced artist tell a story then it's my obligation to do just that.
I went to Aaron for help with scene work and it was a truly great experience. His ability to give open critiques that help you improve while still allowing you to have a voice was incredibly helpful. He also breaks down his notes in a way that's easily digestible while leaving you with things to think on and apply to future scenes. I highly recommend Aaron as an acting teacher.
Every student is different and what they want out of this class will be different too. I'll first sit and assess where they are in their artistic journey, then together, we will discover what the next step is and I'll provide the know how they need to get there.
I have a BFA in Acting from Pace University. My professors were all accomplished professionals in their own fields as well as teachers. I'd be happy to brag about any of them and I know at least a couple of them would gladly talk to you about my credentials should you desire further evidence.
30/hr for coaching, selftapes, etc.
I'm a professional actor, I started teaching because I know a lot about my craft and i want to share that.
Mostly colleagues, either in other artistic mediums who were improving their acting (dancers, singers, etc) or fellow actors who needed fresh eyes they could trust. I coach my friends a lot and am looking to branch out.
Avoid "Method Acting". Americans have become more and more obsessed with causing themselves pain for awards and its a disgusting misrepresentation of a noble art. It's worked for people, but only because of their raw talent.
When building your technique, try everything, but only hang on to what works. Not every trick works for every actor so if something doesn't "click" that's ok, something else will.
Do you want to be a professional actor or is this a passion project?
If you're unsure, that's ok, we can discover that together.
