I offer lessons to:
- Teach LAMDA exams.
- Coach for drama school entry.
- Professional acting coaching.
I will tailor the lessons to each individual and exactly how they would like to work. Methods I can use are, Laban, actions and objectives, character analysis and more. I will push students towards dynamic yet truthful work, and believe in a firm reality and authenticity in performance. I offer warm but rigourous approach, building confidence but also pushing boundaries.

I graduated LAMDA in 2015 and have been coaching people in Acting ever since. My students have gained places at prestigious drama schools such as RADA, Guildhall and Bristol Old Vic.
I also direct professionally across London with my company Lidless Theatre. I have worked with Philip Ridley and others to consistent 4 and 5 star reviews.
I run weekly acting workshops at GoHub, where drama school graduates and professional working actors come to hone their skills and be pushed further.
I also just finished working at LAMDA Exams so have a deep knowledge of what they are looking for and how to best present yourself on the exam date.

LABAN technique, James Kemp.
Perfect! Max was very good with my daughter, creative, understanding, fun to work with, she gained confidence and excelled in her subject following our sessions.
Rebecca was a brilliant student, thoughtful, inquisitive and courageous as an actress, I would highly recommend!
Perfect! I really liked my lessons with Max, I didn’t have much experience with acting before but he made me feel comfortable on how to approach texts differently, he knows how to communicate well the notes he has for you, so you improve fast and are more focused on everything. He also has great adaptability based on what you need from each lesson.
Delfi is a brilliant student with lots of initiative and a willingness to learn. Would highly recommend!
Excellent! Wonderful session, thank you!
Very good thanks!
Max is one of the most insightful and encouraging Acting coaches I’ve come across. He draws from his experiences as a LAMDA-trained actor, his workings with elite theatre professionals such as Mike Alfreds and James Kemp (ex-assistant to Yat Malmgren) and from his innate ability to understand the craft of acting. Adding to this Max’s generosity, kindness and wisdom, he has fashioned an approach which is truly bespoke. Max has a wealth of knowledge about the drama school system and he regularly directs recent Drama School graduates on productions mounted by his theatre company, Lidless Theatre. Working alongside Max, both assisting him as Movement Director and as an actor under his direction, has always been an incredibly joyous experience. He manages to find a sense of ease and trust even in the most difficult of situations and his process facilitates you to make real discoveries in your acting. As an actor, I regularly refer back to advice given by Max and will often seek his help with audition material. Max’s results never fall short of brilliance and he is, in my opinion, the perfect choice to tutor you in Acting, or coach you for your Drama School Auditions.
Max has phenomenal skill in bringing a piece of text to life. He is able to guide an actor towards the truer form of a character. His advice and technique have been instrumental in my development and for anyone looking to add detail to a play, scene or speech, ask Max!
