Maura's Experience

I have taught one on one and larger group lessons depending on the situation. As each student is uniquely talented I prefer to find the method that best suits that individual. Some work better as method actors, others use emotional recall, still others like spontaneity, we find the best way together to make you the best and most bookable actor we can! This should be fun not drudgery. I often receive notes telling me how my tricks, tips and teaching methodologies have increased confidence in the casting office and thereby bookings!
