I put five students on the Acting I course today and they are THRILLED! They are already having so much fun that I have a couple others I may be putting on tomorrow. I have not seen those students look that happy since we started and it was a delight to see. They are already planning to put on a skit/play for the younger kids at the school.

If I had to put together a high school curriculum in the time I had to prepare without you I would have quit in the first month. More importantly, I think the students are really learning on your courses and I know they love the art courses (animation, acting, and now music). They were "starved" for this!  I'm certainly glad I found out about your courses--this year could have been pretty awful otherwise. Thanks again!

This first book is a full, comprehensive course on acting that a student can do anywhere, so long as they have a scene partner or two to work with. As you may know, Steven has directed over 250 productions around the world, is an Emmy and Dramalogue award winning writer, and as an actor has hundreds of roles to his credit. After well over 40 years teaching actors in professional private workshops, he's distilled his understanding of acting into this one book. It is in the form of an extensive course, with tons of information for the beginner, the practiced actor, even the working pro.

Every skill or idea discussed is provided with exercises you can do at home, to master the many aspects of acting, and an acting career. A serious (and literate) student, age 15 to 90, could work through this book through for a full year or two, every day learning more and every day improving their skills. You do not need to come to L.A. to study with Steve, or with anyone. (Though if you can, you should. Serious English speaking actors must eventually live in L.A., New York, or London! That's where the work is.)

This book is a huge step toward allowing anyone, anywhere a real chance to discover their acting abilities, and to gather an understanding of the industry. It even includes our Artist's Basic Course, complete and ready for study.
