Coaching sessions generally last an hour, and are held at various New York City studios; remote sessions are also offered. My clients (adults as well as children and teens) send me a scene or monologue they would like to work on, or they ask me to bring in cold scenes and/or new monologues. We work through the piece - discussing its significance and meaning, the character's needs and intentions, and issues pertaining to the other characters. I give the actor a number of ways to approach the text and we schedule as many sessions as are necessary.
Eventually, we find the best fit when we both feel confident that the piece works and will result in a successful audition. I help the actor get to the place where, as a casting director, I would sit up and take notice, and book them in the job.
