Follow-up classes will involve using actual scripts from commercials, TV, and film projects and working on audition techniques for self-tapes and in-person auditions. 
Students will be guided through mock auditions to help them gain the confidence they will need to go into the room and nail the audition. 
I have been an actor for almost 30 years and have lived and worked in Toronto, NYC, San Franciso, and Los Angeles. I have acted in 100's of voice commercials, many on-camera commercials, TV shows, films, web series, and live streaming in my 25+ years in the business. I have directed, coached, and produced several productions in Toronto, NYC, and Los Angeles. I also worked for Entertainment Weekly in their early online digital video as a red-carpet correspondent/host interviewing celebrities. 

I taught kids magic classes and acting classes at a Toronto private school and I have coached many young actors for professional voiceovers, commercials, and film roles. I have held kids' on-camera acting lessons and "getting into the biz" info sessions and classes over the years and have worked with elementary school-age children up to adults. 

I have my bachelor of fine arts (honors) in Theatre - Performance from Ryerson University.
I am trained in Meisner and Stanislavsky techniques. I have studied and performed at UCB NYC and The Groundlings LA as well as many more notable studios in Toronto, NYC, SF, and Los Angeles. 



There won't be any homework for this initial class. If students choose to sign up for the weekly class I will provide a commercial script for them to memorize before class one. 
Informal assessment. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
