Child’s Play NY offers rigorous and rewarding one-on-one coaching for the young actor. Whether preparing for an arts-school or professional audition, it is important for your child to feel confident in their preparation.
When appropriate, we help select monologues that are unique and fit their individuality. Coaching involves guiding the student to strong clear choices and helping them to intellectually and emotionally connect to the text. Vocal and movement work are an integral part of the session.
Coaching sessions are $125 for a 60 minute lesson in your home. If you’d like to meet in our Dumbo office, the rate is $175 for 60 minutes. Please contact us if you are interested in a one-on-one session.
In order to work on the full range of expression, and increase marketability in the business, we recommend vocal coaching for the young actor. In private sessions students work on vocal control, breath, pitch, and placement of the voice. We select a range of age-appropriate and dynamic songs and also work on how to “act” the lyrics.
After 8 lessons (minimum encouraged) the student will have a book of songs from the classical and contemporary musical theater cannon. For the more advanced student we offer lessons in theory and how to read music.
Our vocal staff is available for one-time singing coaching when preparing for an audition as well.
Because we believe that theater is a powerful tool for education, Child’s Play NY provides residencies with a limited number of partner elementary schools. To assess the needs of the school, Jocelyn Greene will meet with a school leader and tailor a program to unite English and Social Studies curriculum with Theater.
