I provide bespoke coaching to support actors in their creative process and artistic development.
Self Tape Doctor - self tape coaching and filming
Pro-Prep - audition or role preparation for a professional engagement
Journey 1-2-1 - private acting classes developing fundamental technique
In a Journey class we will work on developing your process and vision, so that you can can grow, move forward and work as an actor.
Lessons begin with a consultation about where you are on your journey with acting and what work we can do together.
We will then have classes, working on material carefully selected for you, developing essential fundamental technique.

Having a strong foundation technique and understanding, that can route you and give you something to fall back on, is the key to true confidence. This is what we would work to develop. Of course that takes time and practice but we can put in place the framework for you to build upon and move forward.
I also work with an accent/dialect coach and movement coach, as part of a team, where we can offer you comprehensive and completely bespoke support in your development.

Ben has been instrumental to my growth as a professional actor. As an already working actor, finding the right coach, who can be malleable enough to work with experienced performers aswell as beginners, and work with them accordingly can be tough. But that is just one of the brilliant examples of Bens diversity as a teacher. Would highly recommend him to actors at any stage.
Bem Woodhall is an excellent acting coach. I’m a musical theatre actress who’s trying to up their acting game and I’ve been having sessions with Ben for a few months now and It’s been amazing! So much knowledge and teaching skills!
Ben goes above and beyond to aid in an Actors preparation. I've worked with him several times now and the experience gets better each time!
He's punctual, reliable and loves the craft. Couldn't recommend him enough!
I would highly recommend Ben for one to one acting tuition for drama school auditions or general audition coaching. He went the extra mile to ensure I was prepped and helped me carefully choose monologues which suited my playing age and my strengths as an actor. I felt fully supported and every session I would go away with pages of notes, with specific character detail that I needed to consider. Ben is very kind whilst being extremely honest about what is needed when entering into the drama school audition circuit. He brings you to the standard that is required, going into objectives, actions and character thoughts/ intentions. This detail gives you options which is freeing in an audition room so you can go anywhere. Book in with Ben!!
