David B. says, "I have liked working with Patrice Peris Voice Studios because they (Patrice, Whitney, Renée & the rest of the staff) have the best of intentions and want the best outcomes for their clients. In the five years I have been taking lessons they have helped me improve my vocal range, as well as help me to step out of my comfort zone & have the courage to sing in public. Also, with Josh (a recent graduate of WPI in music) & their assistance I was able to make a dream of mine come true of recording a song. I look forward to continuing to work with Patrice & the whole staff for many years to come. So, if you are looking for a voice studio to begin voice lessons then Patrice Peris Voice Studios is the place for you. David B" 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

Reviews for Marlborough acting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Marlborough area.
Leyea R.
my 10-y-o daughter had her first lesson with Sara today. Sara is amazing! She is so warm and playful and creative and my daughter felt instantly comfortable with her and she learned a lot in just one hour. As a parent of a dyslexic child, I feel so grateful that Sara has experience working with kids with special needs and it shows in her patience and encouragement. And Sara has been wonderful about communicating with me. I couldn't recommend her more!
