Introduction: Note- Due to Covid 19- *I AM NOW WORKING SOLELY ONLINE! I offer both Private Coaching for Actors and Public Speakers. I also offer Group Classes for IMPROVISATION, SCENE STUDY, COLD READING and SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING. Classes are held on ZOOM! I have 20 years of experience in the performing arts, and take great pride in coaching actors and public speakers. Many of the actors I have coached are now working on television, film and Broadway. This year, 4 of my clients signed with agents because I invited them to watch my actors' Zoom performances. Agents know that when a client works with me and I recommend them, they are prepared for this cut throat industry. Here is why you should work with me: 1. My roster of clients range from celebrities to CEO's of companies, to brand new actors and public speakers. No matter who you are and what your goals are, I am skilled professional who will give you the tools you need to excel at your auditions and presentations. 2. I expose you to industry professionals that you would otherwise not have the opportunity to meet from your homes- especially during Covid. I invite industry members to student performances (which when you are my client- you get to attend for FREE) and this gives you the opportunity to ask questions, learn and network. I also host Instagram Lives with Industry members and focus on specific topics you will need to learn about. 3. I not only help you with your craft, but I also motivate you to be a business professional. They don't call it Show BUSINESS for nothing :) We work on building your actor websites, getting your headshots and resumes ready, creating an actor's reel and social media presence. If you are looking for representation, we create a plan together to make that happen. My coaching is all about DOING and ACTION! Whether you are a beginner or have years of experience, I will be committed to designing a program that suits your current needs. I invite you to visit my website and learn more about me and the services I provide. Accountability, responsibility, commitment, passion and integrity lie at the center of our work. I not only teach you acting and public speaking- I give you an online acting community! I hope to work with you and have you join my acting family!

Joanne provided a fantastic introduction to acting for my 13 year old daughter. My daughter was thinking about doing drama in high school and wanted to test out her interest. She really enjoyed the intro call with Joanne, and it was easy to set up a series of lessons over zoom. My daughter enjoyed the lessons, learned a lot, and Joanne was excellent with scheduling. Highly recommend.

Working with Joanne has been such an awesome experience! She challenges me and pushes me to take action, which I very much appreciate. Joanne has also helped me put together a plan for exactly what needs to happen over the coming months, which has been super helpful at keeping me on track. I always learn something new from our sessions, and I always leave feeling empowered and excited to do the work. Highly recommend Joanne!

I hired Joanne to work with my 9 year old son and I am so glad I did! She encourages Parker to explore acting as both an art and a science. The lessons include practice and experimentation with acting methods using games and exercises that allow him to grasp incredibly complex ideas in a fun and interesting way. Parker absolutely loves working with Joanne and her knowledge and industry experience has been a great asset to me as the mom of an actor. She is always willing to answer questions from my son and myself. Simply, she's amazing!!

Details: Beginner • 6 - 9 years old • Cold reading • To continue professional development • Refine vocal expression • Film • TV episode • TV commercial • 1 person • As recommended by teacher • 60 minutes • Saturday • Sunday • Morning (9am - noon) • Late afternoon (3 - 6pm) • Early afternoon (noon - 3pm) • Evening (after 6pm) • Within a month • Need some more information before hiring • Phone or internet (no in-person meeting) • The acting instructor travels to me • I travel to the acting instructor

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $80 for fifty minutes I also offer packages. 5 -fifty minute lessons cost $350 and 10-fifty minute lessons cost $650. $45 for 25 minutes I also offer packages. 5 -twenty-five minute lessons cost $200 and 10 - twenty five minute lessons cost $350.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    To begin, I suggest we set up a 15 minute free consultation, so that I can learn more about you and the goals you have created. Then, I will share with you the program that I can provide you with. My services are customized to fit your specific needs and interests. This individualized approach helps all types of clients, from those brand new to the performing arts to those with years of experience. For instance, some of my clients need daily or weekly support in their artistic work, while others need coaching on a specific audition or project. Based on your current needs, we will collaborate to develop a schedule that makes sense for you. I include feedback and will maintain regular communication regarding your progress. Together we will discover what self doubts you are holding onto. What fears you have that consistently hold you back from unleashing your most creative self. What actions you are not taking. What skills you need to learn. What areas of your work should you be committing to right now. You and I will create a sense of urgency that will motivate you to stay on track, especially when it is hard. We will commit to the work you need to do right now! I go back and forth between LA and NYC. I do most of my lessons online, which has proven to be very effective.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    After 18 years of experience in working with performing artists all over New York City and Los Angeles, I wanted to give my clients the tools that they will need in order to achiever their goals. These tools have the power to make a remarkable difference in your work. I know this because my clients continue to book work, write productions, produce movies and make a career in doing what they love. I hold a maser's degree from New York University in Theater Education and English. I have taught drama at the middle school level for 7 years, and then owned my own children's theater, The Magic Mirror Theater for 6 years. I have also performed, produced, directed and have written plays Off Broadway.
