A combination of class and private coaching is the best venue for college audition prep. 

Lea takes a VERY limited number of private college audition coaching students each year.

Acceptance into one of Lea’s coaching slots is by interview. The interview takes the form of a private session and runs about an hour.**


Make informed choices.  

Find schools that work for YOU.  

Learn tips and organization ideas to ease the stress.

A targeted combination of class and private coaching is the best prep for rocking those auditions.

While many coaches take a “quick fix” approach to the process, Lea believes that building skills is essential for audition success. 

Lea believes in offering support for the entire process- not just that five or ten minutes in the room.

She teaches techniques for a successful college audition season top to bottom. 

Although no one can control the ethereal and random nature of college audition outcomes, an actor must be in top form to be truly IN the game.

Lea helps students to root out fears and other things that block their processes.  She helps them to become the boldest, and most truthful, open and centered versions of themselves.


Successful coaching for theatre,

television and film requires technique  

that works from the heart, not the head.


Lea now helps to bring success to students across the country. 

At coaching sessions, Lea is lovingly supportive, but can also be tough.


She works like a diagnostician, using a range of professional acting techniques,  as she zeroes in and works to feature a students' strengths, and use skill building to shift areas that are weak.  

No matter what the audition may be, building skills is the first step to success.  A students actor must learn how to get out of the brain and into the body  Lea uses unique techniques to achieve this even as she works with students to craft a sophisticated, stylish and truthful audition piece.
