    Great experience for anyone interested in acting whether you’re starting out or have already been in the industry. I have learned so much since starting out such as focusing on tonality, articulation, and so much more. Clay is extremely knowledgeable and helpful in many ways! I would highly recommend!

    Coming up as an early career actor in Hollywood I had the pleasure of learning in one of Clayton's acting seminars for Shakespearian performance for kids, teens, and adults. His teaching method was second to none in the art of stage presence, projection, Improv, and more. Combining actors young and old in a Shakespearean circle of insults onlookers were brought to tears of joy along with the participating students. Clayton takes all the pressure and anxieties that new aspiring actor often feel and places them in a fun, creative, non-judgmental atmosphere, where actors old and new can grow their skillset and progress in a positive way toward their ambitions and goals.

    The experience I had was truly remarkable. It was developed to my specific needs as an actor and I was challenged mentally, physically and emotionally to captivate the characters we worked on. I learned a lot about myself and who I am and can be as an actor.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I give a free consultation to discuss the goals and needs of the actor, then I come up with a plan of action based on how many sessions the actor wants to pursue.  I diagnose each actor based on their goals and their skill level as to which exercises and work we will do. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have over 27 years of expereince in teaching theatre/acting and in profiessional directing and acting work in the entertainment industry. 

I hold a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Directing and Bachelor of Arst Degree in Theatre.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing varies according to the client's needs.  I offer private coaching and on-going classes at very affordable rates.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching when I was in college, working as a drama coach and teacher for high school students.  I found the work to be highly rewarding.  Once I went professional as an actor and director, I realized I had a lot to offer professional and early career actors. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have qorked with children performers, high school, college, and adults of all ages.  I am expereinced in both non-experienced students and professional and early-career actors.
