Private Coaching

Prepping for an audition, class, or a performance? You need a Shakespeare Coach!

We'll tailor your lessons to suit your specific needs. In your private sessions, you'll discover:

-What "iambic pentameter" is, and how to use it effectively as an actor

(My method for this is so unique and fun, it has been published in a textbook!)

-What you're actually saying AND how to pronounce it

-How to interpret and deliver 400-year-old dialogue for a modern audience

-How to find the most authentic acting choice that is supported by the text so that you stand out from the crowd

Upon request, I'll hand-select classical monologues for current students at no additional cost!

Here's what some students had to say:


"I was amazed by how much information she had ready off the top of her head.

She answered all my questions immediately and in great detail,

and gave me exactly what I needed for my audition."

"Emily is an expert on Shakespearean text. She has a deep and impressive knowledge of the canon, was extremely helpful in helping me select material, and instrumental as I was working through it. Not only does she really know her stuff, but she knows the industry and is full of insight -- to say nothing of a wonderful and lovely person to work with. I loved my experience!"


"I know what I'm saying now!THANK YOU for all your help!"
