Hey everyone, my name is Ajeanis G and I am the CEO and founder of All Things Media management. I started a management consulting company because I begin managing my six children who are all Singer, songwriters actors, athletes, and continent creators, all of the tender age of three and up. When I first started, I had nowhere to go no one or to reach out to, and the Internet definitely did not provide any advice on how to get them into this industry. Yes of course as the nurturing mother that I am I reached out and got no responses. That was the drive for me right there. I became so passionate, and fell in love with the fact that there is a w

Jennifer M. says, "My daughter was looking for an introduction to acting and Bruce has been a fantastic coach. He applies his first hand training experience to very realistic and practical exercises (and homework!) that engage and challenge the student. I believe this would be the same experience for even more experienced students. Overall, very impressed with Bruce, his professionalism, and plan to continue classes into the new year." Read more

Jason A. says, "I took Dr. Shipman's Aural Comprehension course in college, and to this day it is the most valuable (and my favorite) course that I've ever taken as a musician. Training our ears is critical to musical development, and her methods of training the ear to identify single or multiple intervals, as well as chords and chord progressions were vital in my growth as a musician, and to this day help me with similar skills such as transposing and even sight-singing. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without her guidance!" Read more

Your Acting Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do acting classes cost?

Acting classes cost $25 to $65 per hour on average for group classes or $50 to $150+ per hour to hire a private acting coach. Prices vary depending on where you live and the instructor's experience and reputation. Acting studios that offer ongoing weekly classes typically charge $150 to $350 per month.

Acting courses and workshops can cost as little as $200 to as much as $2,800+, depending on the content, number of sessions, and the instructor's demand. Some acting workshops are short, 1- or 2-day intensive classes focusing on one aspect of the industry, while other programs last 4 to 8 weeks and cover several topics, methods, and techniques.

Most studios offer a free trial class so you can get a feel for the teaching style and decide if it's right for you.

Are online acting classes worth it?

Online acting classes are worth it if you want to pursue acting and are unable to attend acting classes in person. With online video calling platforms like Zoom and Skype, you can now study acting with the best in the industry from the comfort of your own home! Many reputable acting coaches—including those right here on Lessons—now offer online acting classes and teach the same methods and techniques that they teach in the studio. 

Do you need acting classes to become an actor?

You technically don't need acting classes to become an actor. However, acting classes can help you gain confidence, learn new methods and techniques, analyze scenes and scripts, and build new industry connections and relationships. Acting classes can also teach you about the business side of acting, which is as important as acting itself.

How long do acting classes take?

Acting class length varies depending on the studio and the type of class. Some studios have 2-hour classes, while others have classes lasting 3 to 5 hours. Depending on the location, acting classes may be offered in several formats, such as ongoing weekly classes, weekend intensive workshops, and training programs that can run anywhere from 2 to 8+ weeks.

What skills do you need to be an actor?

While the necessary skillset varies depending on the type of acting you pursue (think Broadway theater vs. TV commercials vs. film), all actors need a broad range of skills to portray the expressions and emotions of a character so effectively that they temporarily transport the audience to a world where the actor is indeed that character. This often involves:

  • Memorizing lines and stage cues
  • Analyzing scripts and scenes
  • Developing a character's emotions and physical expressions
  • Working with other actors, directors, and production crews
  • Adapting to unexpected changes and situations
  • Speaking clearly and adjusting one's voice to align with the character
  • Learning and developing different acting methods and techniques
  • Being comfortable in front of an audience or camera

Katherine is one of the most inspiring teachers I've ever had. 10 years later and I still reference her lessons. If you're looking for a boring lecture with no real life application, this is NOT your guide. Thanks for the musical lessons and the life lessons. There are some people that leave a mark on your heart. She is one of them.
