Frequently asked questions about Online Acting Coaching
Does it really work?
Yes! Amazingly well. For some actors, it is even preferred. First, you can study acting no matter where you are. Wendy works with actors who are on tour, actresses who are stay-at-home moms, actors in far away places where no acting schools exist and actors whose work schedules make it impossible for them to attend in-person classes at her studio.
Second, the private one-on-one aspect of the training means both student and teacher can easily focus and get detailed about the work. And because you're working "on camera," Wendy can see aspects of your work that need to be strengthened for self tapes, etc.
While it's true that there's nothing like going through the real training in Wendy's classroom, there are lots of things she can do to make you a better actor and more impressive in an audition simply by working with you in private online sessions. Take a look at what some of her online clients say about her coaching and try it out for yourself. (read testimonials)
What happens if I have to miss a session?
Wendy does not allow any rescheduling of sessions. Actors need to be as committed to their online sessions as they would be if they were attending in-person classes at her studio. All sessions are non-refundable once paid.
I'm a beginner. How do I know what topic to select?
You'll be able to figure that out when you talk with Wendy. She's been training beginners for years and will be able to easily custom design a training program for you.
Do I need special equipment?
You will need strong WIFI and a laptop, notebook or phone with a decent camera. Sometime clients purchase inexpensive USB cameras and/or mics not only to make coaching easier but as an investment for better quality self tapes.
What ages do you work with?
Wendy works with all ages. Under age actors must set up a consultation with a parent present to discuss potential class packages or audition coaching.
When do I switch from being a new client to a regular client for pricing purposes?
You are a regular client if you're training with Wendy in her studio, if you are doing a multi-session class, or if you work with Wendy on an ongoing basis (several times a month) in individual sessions. If you've been away from coaching for six months, you will go back to paying the new client fee.
