Whether you are a seasoned actor or just starting to build your career, we would love to meet you and help you on your way.

Our approach is based on the Sam Chwat Method in combination with oral posture work, International Phonetic Alphabet application, and ear training.

Our academic and pedagogical credentials are complemented by our varied backgrounds in the arts (music, acting, writing, languages). This unique combination allows us to teach with sensitively-tuned ears and eyes while encouraging our students to develop mindfulness and good practice habits.

Rochel is as proficient as sam

“Had a brush-up session today with Rochel after rigorous studying with my dear coach, the late Sam Chwat, who helped me eliminate my European accent and acquire Standard American Speech. Sam was the wonderful man who trained Rochel, and I’m happy to say, she is as proficient and wonderful as he was!”

An Actor and Linguist's Review

““It is a pleasure to be taught by such a professional like you, Deb. I successfully graduated from a screen acting course in Britain. The tutors didn’t even recognize my country of origin until I told them. Only due to your support could I sign up for my first-ever performing workshop in an English-speaking country.”
