~ 2. says, "I took private voice lessons with Laura during Junior High and High School and it was so worth it. She is really great at knowing how to tackle your voice and what pieces and warm ups will help you the most. She also was wonderful at helping me get ready for any auditions I had coming up with theatre, choir, and college! Best of all, she is generous and makes you feel comfortable, knowing that voice lessons can be a scary thing! I am currently in my fifth year in college and still to this day she is very helpful whenever I need her. I know I can contact her about needing some sheet music or tracks or anything else. She is stuck being my voice teacher forever! " Read more

Kamalia B. says, "I did a heavy amount of research on who I wanted as a voice coach and among the interviews I conducted, I was lucky enough to have met Alina. She is a multi-talented individual who adjusts to the comfort level of the student while also effectively nudging them to improve. I have grown more comfortable in using both my regular and singing voice since starting her class in the fall of 2021 and I have enjoyed all of our sessions together. She is devoted in ensuring that the student enjoys the class and that the virtual environment is safe and inviting and allows for her students, like myself, to get out of our comforts by doing periodic virtual recitals. I was so encouraged to see the variety of ages and skillsets she serves which further outlines her dedication to her musical craft and sharing her gifts with others. My most notable improvement from being her student is when I ask her if she could teach me how to read the music notes so I can follow through matching tones, keys and rhythms. Just after a year and a half, I can confidently can catch myself going off key or when I read a note incorrectly. I started off as just wanting to improve my singing voice for fun and ending getting a lot more out of the process with Alina as my instructor. I highly recommend!" Read more

My clients sing in a healthy way, based on an extensive anatomical foundation. They all make significant technical progress and are known for their expressive interpretive skills. They improve in terms of personal growth and development and are successful in choirs, on stage, and in other groups, as soloists and in leading roles, as educators and conductors, on tour and in the recording studio, when applying for entrance to university and conservatory training programs, in gaining acceptance to summer programs, in winning competitions, and in obtaining scholarship funding. I love to help people release tension in their voices and make the ...

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 Renton acting classes

Recent success stories from people in the Renton area.
Jack S.
John is great at finding weaknesses in the actor's analytical and emotional skill set. He teaches you how to strengthen these weaknesses based on the teaching approaches of Uta Hagen, Konstantin Stanislavsky, Sanford Meisner and his background as a writer and director. I love his up beat teaching style and endless forms of motivation. Your success is tied to self-motivation and hard work, but John can definitely show you how to acquire the tools to become a professional actress/actor.

Laura is amazing and, without a doubt, the best voice teacher I have ever had. She is both fun and focused, she is flexible with her teaching style so that people of all learning styles can flourish, and she listens and adjusts if you tell her something isn't working. She has been both teacher and mentor to me, and I'm thankful every day that I had the opportunity to learn from her.

During a time when I wanted to take advantage of the opportunities provided by long-distance online lessons, I was very lucky to find Alina. She conducts virtual classes smoothly and effectively, and she's incredibly lively, warm, and encouraging as she works with you on your chosen vocal goals. I've been singing for a while now, and she's helped me unlock exciting new sounds and styles in my voice, all while sharing healthy and helpful techniques for some of my problem spots. I know I'll keep her vocal wisdom handy for a long time to come!

I have been working with Larry since January of 2020. His instruction makes learning approachable and fun. He is patient, attentive, and knowledgable. I always feel like his feedback is well-catered to the specific details of what we're working on. He is a great teacher!
