Stan teaches Audition Technique Acting Classes using Zoom as a platform. He works with individual actors using monologues and commercial copy or two actors doing TV and film scenes. Sides are emailed in advance, allowing adequate time to prepare (see Audition Prep) and students receive access to video recordings of the session after each class.
Classes run for up to 90 minutes and are usually scheduled Monday through Friday at 1:00 and 3:00, although alternate times are possible. The cost is $40 for a single actor and $35 each for two actors doing a scene. Payment can be made using PayPal or Venmo.
Simply put, Stan’s classes replicate the actual audition experience, designed to teach and solidify those specific skills that will consistently result in successful readings but they are also straightforward acting classes using audition technique as a platform. Zoom has proven to be especially useful for the classes because it replicates the way on-camera auditions and self-tapes operate.
Stan's teaching involves no gimmicks - just clear, effective instruction. He is particularly adept at focusing on each actor's unique personality, casting type, strengths, and problem areas. Rather than limit his teaching to one particular philosophy or method, Stan's approach is designed to teach reliable acting techniques that are applicable in any acting or audition situation.
