My Teaching Method is divided in three core parts :
1. Finding Great Monologues :
I will help you to find what resonates the most with your personality and cultural heritage, and that will inform greatly your monologue research.
2. Building a Rich Performance :
We will work on having well-rounded monologues that display a character journey, great tension, a developed imaginary world and physical embodiment. At the end of our work you will not only speak the words but you will see, feel, hear, and live in the moment.
3. Being ready for redirection
This is the most challenging part of most recalls. Therefore I will test your ability to think on your feet, to stretch your imagination and to be open to all types of new contexts for your monologues that the panel could throw at you.
I’m Axel, and I’m currently on the BA Acting of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Before that I have been working as a professional actor, getting visibility and a few jobs thanks to my former agent. Besides, I am the founder of auditionhack.com, and decided to launch a coaching service after realising that few drama school audition coaches offer preparation that is very specific to the current audition process in top drama schools. The way Drama Schools audition candidates evolves regularly, and I wanted to make sure that I can prepare applicants with the most up to date information, having been through that process myself recently. I have recently expanded my services to self tapes and general audition coaching.
Perfect! Axel has a very positive attitude and makes you feel relaxed and at ease so that you can do your best work. He looks at your speeches and helps you to approach them in different ways to bring out the best in you. I would absolutely recommend Axel to aspiring actors :)
Maud is such a pleasure to work with. She is very flexible with redirection and likes to challenge herself which makes the work very exciting!
Perfect! Axel’s technique challenges you to understand the character in order to deliver an exceptional performance.
I started out as an aspiring actress without an understanding on how to analyse various characters. This is where Axel’s expertise exceeds. In a short period of working with Axel, I’m more confident to be able to take on difficult roles. Amazing tutor.
A real pleasure to work with Tamara. She is very flexible and open to to redirection!
My session with Axel was incredibly helpful, he is warm and instantly put me at ease which helped me to feel comfortable enough to be open to his guidance. I could feel myself improving throughout the session. Axel worked to get the best out of me by getting me to think for myself through questions and suggestions rather than just telling me what to do which I really enjoyed. His passion for acting comes through and is so inspiring. I would highly recommend him!
I had worked with him when I was preparing for my final performance examination at a regional conservatory.
I successfully passed the examination and the tips, advices and lessons he had given me definitely guided me throughout my examination period.
His advices are thorough, precise and meticulous. He’s also really friendly and caring.
I would recommend him to anyone be it for drama lessons or audition or casting calls preparation lessons.
