After only a few sessions with Lana I am already feeling much more confident as someone who is new to acting. I am very thankful to have found an acting coach who is so knowledgeable and encouraging. I look forward to continue working with her.Aug 28, 2020Verified
Lana Young’s expertise is invaluable. My husband and I now know how to appropriately prepare our daughter for auditions. Most important for us is how comfortable my five year old daughter feels working with her “Acting Teacher.” Thank you for your help with a request for a last minute audition prep. We are looking forward to working with you.Jun 22, 2020Verified
My daughter had her first session with Lana today and went step by step with her and made her day with that. Can't wait to continue working with her!Aug 31, 2020Verified
Lana Young is amazing. I’ve only had one meeting with her, but she is so knowledgeable of the industry and I can see she really cares about the success of her students. I’m really excited to continue working with her in the future!Aug 31, 2020Verified
I'm early into my lessons with Lana and I already love her approach and personality. She explains the theory of acting in a manner that's simple but inspirational. Can't wait to learn more and have fun along the way.May 13, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer special rates for thumbtack students. The most important thing is to get yourself started so if these rates are difficult to pay please contact me directly to discuss. Self taped auditions - $55/hr (includes me as a reader, on the camera, edits and upload. Direction and coaching available - additional fees depends on need.) Will pro-rate rate for the length of time we actually work. Acting coaching - $95/hr including audition prep, acting technique, character development, camera technique etc...$85/hr for a group of 4 or more sessions. Career consultation is $125/hr - based on your level of experience and exposure to the business, I tailor a plan for you to exist successfully as an actor in New York.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The key to a successful session is a complete understanding of where your student is currently in their process and career. For Career Consultations - I use google docs and create a tailored plan for each and every student. I assess where you are in your career and then add or subtract from the plan based on your individual needs. This is imperative to living successfully as an actor in any market. We have very little control in this business but the good news is you CAN control how and where the industry sees you by following essential steps for success. YOU are your business after all. For Acting Coaching - I will spend some time at the beginning of the session to assess your level of experience, training and skills. And of course, what your needs are in that particular session. From there we will work in a way that is most effective for you. I will also take the time to figure out how you learn best and tailor my coaching so that we can maximize our learning time together. For Self Tape - it's pretty self explanatory. You'll have an audition and I will read and tape you. If you need coaching or directing, that is available to you too. I also offer taped scenes to bolster your actor's access profile page. If you don't know what that means, you should sign up for a career consult with me. :-)
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an excellent amount of life experience as well as a Masters Degree in Acting from Arts Educational School London. I also make a living on just acting so I am constantly around sets, actors of a high calibre, casting directors and agents etc...So I have first hand information and experience.
