About this pro

I am providing video acting and voice lessons (Speech and singing) for free during the pandemic. 

I love helping people. Anyone can improve their performance or presentation. I get so much satisfaction helping students face a challenge and overcome to accomplish something they never thought they could do.

    Maxx4 is very patient and thorough. Really listens to what you want. Clear and direct. So far so good

  • Asderly P.M

    After my lesson with Greg, I felt a lot more confident and learned a lot, from theater to TV. We also went over an audition I had for the following day and Yes I got the part! Without such confident I probably wouldn’t get it. So thank you Greg & I look forward to more lessons with you.

    Excellent experience

  • Cooper Rivera

    He’s so good and passionate about what he does that when he helps / teaches you, it makes sense.

FAQs


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

The first time we meet will be like an interview. If the fit isn't right for both of us then we should look elsewhere. In this meeting you will bring me an example of your work. You will tell me about your background and goals. I will share my initial critique of your work and give you tools for immidiate improvement.  Together we will outline a plan to help you reach your goals. I will give you assignments for future meetings. We will agree on the next steps and schedule the next meeting. You will leave with a plan and the map to your goal.


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

$35 for a 45 min lesson

$20 for first lesson

$1/mile for each mile after 10 miles if you need me to come to you


How did you get started teaching?

I am a natural teacher. I started teaching/coaching because I would be asked by people I knew to help them. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Some of my greatest accomplishments have been students who told me "I can't do that!" "I've never been on stage!" "I can't sing!" "I'm gonna fail because I have to stand up there in front of everone. Why don't they just read what I wrote!!"

I have helped students from middle school through college who are just wanting to build confidence and those who have starred in the show. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

1) Make sure the relationship a good fit for you. Most of the teacher's role is to convince you that you are safe and that you can do it. There must be trust on both sides. This is about learning to be real and honest. Expect vulnerability to flow both ways.

2) Be wise. Many "teachers" will flatter you so that you keep coming back. If you're not getting the results you want then you need to have the hard talk. If your teacher balks or gets defensive see #1.

3) If something seems hinky it probably is.

4) Bring someone with you. It's a good way to protect you and the teacher. If the instrustor cannot work that way then run!!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) How serious am I about this process? Does my instructor compliment that?

2) Is my timeline realistic? 

3) Am I ready to do the hard work?

4) Will I accept this person's critique?

5) Am I prepared for the financial commitment to reach my goal?
