« I feel extremely grateful that is Mona the performance coach for myself and my students. She is my secret weapon for creating great performances for all of us. I can say with confidence after teaching for 20 years and searching for performance coaches or acting teachers to work with, there is no one who has a process that gets results like Mona. Her technique is detailed, holistic and compassionate. When you finish working on a piece, your performance is complete. She provides a unique program that teaches actors and singer how to present themselves using their mind, body and soul in a consistent and organic way to achieve their ultimate performance. Mona skillfully teaches you a process by using the connection to self and the power of intentions to develop your story within the song. This focus on personal connection is the foundation of Mona’s technique that allows the student to physically, emotionally and spiritually flourish to their maximum potential.

Professional Acting and Performance Coach (MFA Degree) teaching Toronto, NYC, LA and online

Methodology

In our work together, we will build your own reliable sense of craft that is truly useful. My students become confident, courageous and creative, by learning to be authentically themselves as they perform...And these skills translate into the ability to get work because they know HOW to work!

I have worked with actors and singers from 7 to 87. My approach is unique, effective and useful. It blends all the key acting techniques with psychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness findings, which have emerged from scientific research over the last 30 years.

Whether you have finished a degree, have studied a number of techniques with different independent schools and teachers, or are just starting out, I can help you bring all your knowledge together in a process that works for YOU.

Artists are by nature sensitive. You want to be able to put your sensitivity to into your work, but you don't want to let it hold you hostage in life. I can help you face, understand and conquer your stage fright and performance anxiety with reliable techniques that can change your artistic life, and increase your ability to work professionally.

My students learn to how to connect to themselves and stay connected during their performances. Students have described their work with me as 'life-changing'...I just might be the acting and performance coach you have been waiting for! Try me...What do you have to lose?

Background

Trained as an Actor with an MFA at York University, I have been an acting and performance coach for over 20 years. I have coached hundreds of working professionals, students at the university, college and high school high school levels, who are now working as actors and singers in Canada and the US.
