I am a student of 'The Method', a great tool that I learned and honed in graduate school at the worldfamous 'Actors Studio Drama School' in New York City...but Method Acting isn't for everyone, so I use the tools that I have gathered from the many different coaches, professors, actors, and creatives that I have had the privilege to work with in my life.  It is my belief that no one doctrine of acting will work for everyone...So, I get to know my students and we tailor their coaching to who they are, and what works for them.  ...

I've been a theater and film professional for since 1969.  I was a succesful actor, appearing on Broadway with Dustin Hoffman in Arthur Miller's DEATH OF A SALESMAN as his son Hap.  Later appeared as a guest-star in over 40 television shows from Mash and Barney Miller right up to Ray Donovan.  Films include Stephen Seagal's HARD TO KILL as Capt. Hulland. When I started teaching twenty years ago, I brought decades of practical solutions to the challenges all actors face - from how to audition successfully (inspite of nerves), and how to have a process for acting in front of the camera that doesn't depend on 'feeling inspired' ev ...

My Name is Robert Ryel (www.RobertRyel.com) I spent almost a decade at The Beverly Hills Playhouse, primarily with students new to acting, and have performed and taught Theatre and Film Acting, as well as Voice Over and Improv for over 30 years. I am well trained in various techniques, including Stanislavski/Strasberg ("Method") and Sanford Meisner. I strongly believe that training should be tailored to the individual actor; some need one thing, some may need another, some need portions of many things. Initial sessions are focused on discovering which direction to go FOR YOU. Of the instructors I have learned from, TWO have studied directly w ... View Profile

I have worked with several award winning actors, directors, and producers and have treated each day on set like a master class. I have used my time as a professional actress to grow in the art in all forms. I have recently worked on a film for 8 weeks and found that all my co-stars wanted to rehearse their scenes for feedback before we shot. I loved working and learning the different styles and methods an actor takes to reach their objective. It instilled a desire in me to extend this service to others and help them find the moments and the truth to really bring their character and scene to life. Whether it is for yourself, a class, an auditi ... View Profile

Sarah Deaver, Audition/Acting Coach

My main effort is to get you to the callback. Once there, the work changes and goals shift, but the initial audition is what means the most to your agent and to casting and should mean the most to you. There's no job if you can't get past round 1. No matter the scene/script I believe that variety is the spice of life. If your scene does not have turns and shifts and opposites (ie - if your choices are not incredibly specific) then your acting will be uninteresting and you will be forgotten.  Ultimately my goal is to get you to the place where you no longer feel as though you need a coach but have the confidence and knowledge to prep your ...

I taught acting for 5 years discovering and developing a processs that creates a life and spirit to the character you are cast to play. The process triggers the instincts with which we are born. Anybody can learn the process and is irrelevant of one's personality. The key is the desire to learn. Whether one wants to become an engineer, a teacher, a carpenter or an actor, it will not happen without the desire to learn the skills.If you are a seasoned actor, I will work with you on monologues, plays an ...
