My teaching method is based off of the Meisner approach to acting and is lead by the actor channeling that inner excitement that all actors and creatives are born with, into a genuine performance that communicates well with any audience.
I am an actor / director based in Bath, I have trained with practitioners from across the world including Melly Still, writer and director of the National Theatre's production and now GCSE drama syllabus text 'Rats Tales'. I have performed on stages across the UK and Europe as well as in several professional roles in film.
I have been very privileged to learn from some of the best in the industry and I love having the opportunity to share that knowledge with others. If you're looking to improve your technique, go over an audition piece, or simply learn a new approach to acting in a fun and informal way - please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can arrange a session!
Jacob came in and ran an acting workshop for the cast of a play I directed called Ovid's Heroines. He was absolutely incredible. As good as the young actors in the play had been till that point, he really brought them up to another level and helped them to really get in touch with themselves and each other. His focus on the connection between actors on stage and on following your impulses as actors was invaluable. He's a great actor and a great tutor, who teaches by doing rather then via theory. Well worth bringing in whether to work on a monologue, a scene, or with a whole company. He's an injection of energy into any group he's in and his skill with people is great. I can't reccomend him highly enough. Plus, he's just a really lovely guy!
I met Jacob properly during a production I was in, and he’d popped in to give us some tips and advice, and it was honestly such a mind blowing session. The cast and I all agreed that we had never felt so inspired, refreshed and motivated to perform after working with him for only a few short hours. I highly recommend him as an acting tutor.
