I spend many hours of my week teaching and coaching young actors in person or via Skype and Facetime. The main benefit is they have my undivided attention. One-on-one sessions offer a personalized environment in which a young performer can feel safe and free to express himself while taking risks to reach new personal heights. Through private sessions, I will be familiar with your performer, knowing his strengths and understanding how to improve his weaknesses. On-going individual training is essential to developing specific skills that might not be addressed in weekly group classes. Private coaching is a crucial tool for your child’s professional growth, and I highly recommend it for children who audition frequently or professionals. – Denise
