    Acting & Public Speaking Coach

    (11 reviews)

    My goal is for each student/actor to have a personal connection to the text, communicating with clarity and understanding. My 30 years experience allows me to access many and various methods to help the student master the text. I love those moments when "the light bulb goes off" and you see the look of awakening on the students face. You see it in their faces and hear it in their voices, a great wave of confidence and joy takes over.

    European Acting Techniques & Methods

    (3 reviews)

    My work stands out because it stems from a unique method of acting that has never been printed in text, and remains to be the preferred method of acting for some of the most accomplished actors in the world. It is called Movement Psychology, was created by Yat Malmgren. Today we are rated as the #1 acting school in the UK. Passing on knowledge to others has always been very important to me as an actor. I believe that we need to help each other and pass on the tools that we pick up during our training and experiences. I enjoy sharing what I know and learning from others.

    Acting for You

    (2 reviews)

    I have taught at AMDA in New York as well as Los Angeles. I have coached many actors, at all levels. I have been referred by agents to coach their actors for auditions. I have also helped people build confidence. With acting, there are tools that are used to emote power, courage and self acceptance. These tools can be applied in your own life to help you overcome shyness, or low levels of confidence. Working at your own pace, you will begin to feel the difference. I am passionate about educating and helping actors, no matter the age or experience, putting their best foot forward. Working with me you will get varied knowledge about the business of acting as well as, bringing out the actor you are. Working with me will help you: -build confidence -strengthen voice -learn to use those nerves in a beneficial way Discovering Acting through: -Physicality - working with the body first to find character, emotion -Improv - working without thinking, get out of your head and go go go -Scene Work - working with a scene partner, or two -Monologues - you need them, they are your friends -Sense Memory - you have it all inside, learn how to access it -Camera - what's the difference? Already working? I can help with: - Consultation on the business (the how-tos) - Audition preparation & taking direction in the room - How to prepare for the job you booked - Coaching for kids and adults - Cold Readings

  • Voice, Piano & Acting Lessons

    The Eversole Studio

    (10 reviews)

    Mary Beth Eversole has been giving me and my two children piano and voice lessons for approximately four years. For the first three years we attended lessons in her Colorado studio, but after she moved to California, we switched to lessons over Skype. This method works unbelievably well, and in some ways is superior to studio lessons. We simply place our laptop on a music stand next to the piano, and point it as necessary between our faces and the keyboard. Mary Beth is a very enthusiastic, talented, and professional teacher. She relates well to youth of all ages and keeps them excited while focusing on correct form. At the age of 50, I started piano from scratch with no real musical background. It is certainly a testament to her skill that she has taught me to play and to love playing.

    I have worked with Brian for several weeks now, and could not be more thankful to have found such a wonderful acting teacher. I have taken acting classes in reputable places for years in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, and got to a point where it just was not taking me to the next level. This is my first time using an acting coach, and it has changed everything for the better. Brian is incredibly specific, and challenges me every week. He really cares about my goals as an actress, and he truly has a passion for acting that anyone would benefit from. I highly recommend Brian! Thank you so much for helping me take my professional career to the next level! :)
