I was voted Backstage West's "Reader Choice Awards" 2016 top four Youth Acting Coach and VO Teacher in Los Angeles. I specialize in on-camera television and film acting technique that uses your own creative process to bring truth to your thoughts, feelings and words. I work on Audtion and Filming Techniques. I focus each class with one question "What did you do for your acting career this week." This allows you to treat class as a part of your acting career.
I am both the Head of Acting and Director of Conservatory of Gary Spatz's 'The Playground' Acting Conservatory. My clients can be seen at www.theplayground.com and www.gaylagoehl.com.
Gayla teaches the Master's Class my daughter Dana Koops currently takes and privately coaches her for a variety of auditions. We love her. She is energetic, keeps up with the ever changing industry and gives 100%. She can coach anywhere, literally. She not only provides spot on coaching, but also pulls the best out of my daughter. As a former teacher of middle and high school students, I admire her versatile teaching and coaching abilities and whole heartedly entrust my daughter and her talents into Gayla's more than capable hands.
