I have worked with students of all ages but my speciality is working with high school and college students on their written and verbal skills. I also help students raise their English ACT scores to get into the college of their choice. There is nothing better for me than seeing students achieve their goals. I have been in education for most of my career and went back to college for my Master's in order to teach at the college level. My hobbies are writing, reading, yoga, and bike riding. I also developed and taught a creative writing course for adults....

Kelsey L. says, "I had a one-on-one with Katrina for yoga. Right away she made me feel comfortable and at ease. I have very little experience with yoga, and I’m not flexible, like at all, but she was able to accommodate and tailor the session to my level and needs. I went into the session feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and stressed out, and Katrina helped me let go of all that by the end of our session. I left feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and relaxed. She’s the real deal, and I highly recommended her! " Read more

I thinks it's import that the actor is in control of their character at all times. I love talking to an actor openly about their life experiences and how it relates to the character! One of my mentors has been James Mangold. He's well know for directing, "Walk the Line" and "The Greatest Showman." I love the relationship that happens between the Actor & Director. It wasn't until I watched James work so hard with all of his actors to achieve real life into each character. I love the process!...

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

Ms. Michelle is a great vocal teacher! She teaches me how to pronounce words when singing, how to sing in different languages, how to sing louder, and how to sing more like an adult! She makes singing even more fun than it already is! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who likes singing! She has made me improve dramatically!

Lisa is knowledgeable and is willing to take the time to really teach and inspire her students. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and is motivated at the end of the session to continue practicing on her own. Lisa has taken the time to walk me through every aspect of getting my daughter ready for her future. Her kindness, knowledge and patience has helped both my daughter and me navigate through the world of acting, dancing, singing and modeling.

Marty is a great instructor. He listens and responds with exactly what I am looking for. Unlike some, he truly listens and understands what I am and prepares lessons appropriately. He is not "That guy" who wants to show you what he can do. I have been playing for 45 years (on and off) and I highly recommend him!

Tad has been wonderful! His expertise and training really shine through the lessons with my children. He has suggested specific books that will address their areas of need while also keeping in mind their song/style interests and goals. Tad provides challenging yet engaging lessons that have already expanded their skill level. Always communicative, courteous, and punctual, I would highly recommend Tad to anyone looking for piano lessons.
