    Joanne is phenomenal. My children (7, 11, & 12) adore her teaching style and demeanor. Her guidance through this labyrinth of acting has been incredibly valuable. Couldn't be more pleased.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      $60 for 50 minutes I am also offering Gift Certificates for the Holiday Season! We can also discuss a payment plan that works for you, depending on how many sessions you book. I can also do group sessions at a lower rate.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Your first session includes 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. When I am in either city, it shows in my profile. However, I still see clients over Skype or FaceTime, and it is very effective for holding lessons.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      After 17 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.
