â€œI owe my place at drama school to Mark Westbrook. His methods are so simple yet so effective they can turn a decent actor into a fantastic one in a matter of seconds! I've been acting for over 15 years but thanks to Mark it all finally makes sense. He is a pleasure to work with, knows how to get the very best out of you and leaves you feeling more inspired after every session. Within an hour or meeting Mark I felt as though I'd had an epiphany!
â€œAfter working with Mark Westbrook on my monologues, I received an unconditional offer from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, a place at LIPA, scholarships for GSA and AADA in New York, as well as getting signed with a great agent and getting professional work! I cannot recommend his coaching enough. He teaches the only practicable technique I've come across. It's a no bullsh*t approach – and it works.”
â€œThe advice given is clear; something of a rarity. Mark's ways of approaching text, even the most complicated, is unpretentious and straightforward. You leave each session with a concrete idea of where to go next.”
If you are willing to put in the hours, work hard and be open, then Mark can help make you the best actor you can be. The techniques and tips he's taught me have helped open doors I previously didn't know existed.
It is not an exaggeration to say that the studio changed my life. The studio gave and continues to give me not only a technique for truthful acting that makes sense, but a home in which every second is a chance to learn and improve.
You learn how to truly place your focus on the other people in your scene and work together to make something you couldn't have built on your own. The Improv class at ACS has been one of the highlights of my week. The technical instruction is solid and challenging while being executed in a safe and wonderfully fun environment. Nick is an incredible coach who creates a fantastic playground where you feel safe to try new things, explore new techniques, and express yourself in new and fun ways.
