Have a big audition coming up? Igor and other studio faculty have extensive experience in the industry that can help you prepare. Our teachers work with students one on one to select and rehearse audition content that best suits your strengths, industry type, and current opportunity. During the first sixty-minute session, a student should bring a piece they are considering for an audition. Then, it’s all about coaching using core acting techniques to bring your text to life and help you land that big role.

Frequency and duration of sessions are determined on an individual basis in conversation with the student, the student’s needs, and the student’s budget. Igor takes audition preparation students on an individual basis, because every actor and every audition is unique.
