ONLINE acting coaching means that wherever you are in the country you can receive 1-to-1 coaching from the convenience of your own home. In recent times, the acting industry has truly embraced the digital world with many castings, meetings and even rehearsals taking place online via Zoom. Often, the first time a casting director or director will see you act is through a screen. Online 1-to-1s are therefore the perfect way to develop your craft, prepare for castings, get professional advice and refine your self-tape technique all without having to travel.

Online 1-to-1s FAQ
How do online sessions work?
Online one-to-ones are conducted through Zoom. Once you’ve booked a session you’ll receive a link that will allow you to enter your meeting at the appropriate time. If you’ve not used Zoom before it will install the lightweight software onto your PC. You will not need to give out any personal details or create an account.
You can find out more info about Zoom at https://zoom.us/
What devices can I use?
You can use Zoom on any device including a laptop, computer and smart TV. You can even use Zoom on your phone by downloading the Zoom app. When possible, speakers tend to work better than earphones as earphones can sometimes interfere with the mic on Zoom.
How can I get the best connection?
A stable internet connection is important to get the most out of your session.
For best results connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. WIFI is the next best option and after that, 5G and 4G.
To get the strongest connection, switch off anything else that is connecting to your internet. Quality may be poor if someone else on your wifi network is on Xbox live or streaming Netflix/YouTube.
How do I pay?
You’ll receive an invoice which can be paid via bank transfer. If it’s your first session you’ll need to make the payment beforehand.
