The most glowing accolade I can give any teacher is that they have a plan for how they're going to help their students become better actors. Shae has a plan." Read more

Kalycia B. says, "There are so many trainers out there, actually I was so afraid to choose a trainer because I had so many trainers prior to Terry Taylor and I was still stuck in my music career. I just wasn't moving forward. After the first class with Terry I gained so much practical knowledge, that I started to feel very confident in myself as a singer...Terry Taylor is so great he was born to teach voice .... after 2 classes with Terry I started getting so many compliments about my voice. After 2 months in his class I am still growing, because I have attracted top-notch musicians that are playing in a band with me in only 2 months it's such an amazing and wonderful feeling. My goal is to be the best vocalist I can be and be signed with a label..omg it's going to happen because I have the best trainer ever Terry Taylor!!! Terry Taylor will make you a star! Try him, you have so much to gain and nothing to lose....You are worth it! I am Kalycia future superstar....❤️ " 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

Lynn encourages you to be on the edge of your ability and creativity -- she in unique in her methods and that she does not settle for less than brilliance. She helps you find your voice and unique parts of you you may never before encountered. I have benefited enormously from the technical skills I have gained from working with Lynn, as well as the encouragement along the way.

David is a phenomenal, award-winning actor and director who knows how to pull the best out in anyone, and push them to fully embody their talent. He is a champion for all of his students, and fights for them at every turn. I highly recommend him!

Working with Shae has been an absolute gift from the Thespian Gods. She's been clear and gentle in her guidance, and has always worked to help me figure out what I wanted (or unknowingly needed) in my acting arsenal. She helped me develop a precise, effective, and powerful approach to the craft by using my imagination and finding strong intentions; a process of work that I can rely on for anything, from auditioning work to actual work on set. She encouraged me to develop myself as a chameleon, able to do certain dialects and transform physically, mentally, and emotionally to fulfill diverse roles. She's just: Wondrous.

Adam is wonderfully supportive and is very constructive with his criticism. He will tell you when you have been successful but he will tell you when you haven't hit the mark. With his criticism comes meaningful tools to get you where you need to go. I am so fortunate to have had him as an instructor.
