**Required: Students must let me know the day they book, what they would like to work on. If I believe we will not be able to cover everything the students would like to work on in the four 40-minute classes, I will let the students know how much we can do or give them a choice. **If all students want help/to work on monologues, scenes, or audition sides they *already have*, they will need to send me a copy plus any audition information they have (agent email, casting call contents or link) when they book, so I can prepare to help them. Please have parents send me a message the day of booking or post in the classroom, letting me know what the students would like to work on. This way I can plan ahead and gather any materials I may need to coach them. Parents cannot send attachments through email, but can upload scripts to the classroom.

40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
**If students wish to work on non-acting goals (i.e. how the industry works, agents, headshots, resumes, etc.), parental guidance is required.
