Acting Teacher


Description

Everyone has a talent. Some of us are really good at making people laugh in awkward situations. Some are fantastic storytellers. Some are known for their imitations. People with talents such as these make good actors. An actor cannot make it on talent alone. An actor needs to train long and hard to hone that talent, and needs to keep learning and training, just like a musician or a dancer, to keep the skills sharp. Acting teachers have an important role in the lives of actors.

An acting teacher may work with serious actors, who want to make it as stage and film stars. These acting teachers help their students achieve their full potential. However, some acting students are not interested in becoming the next Brad Pitt. Some just want to be able to give a speech without shaking, and some might love pretending for just a few hours a week. Teachers often approach their students with the goal of making the students feel better about themselves, and improve their communication skills. Very rarely do acting teachers emphasize theatrical success on a large scale.

Acting teachers may also teach singing, dancing, script study and warm-up exercises. They may hold auditions, and put on plays with their students. They may also give audition advice, critiquing lessons, and show their students how to write up resumes. They may also arrange for agents or scouts to meet with talented students.

Acting teachers in public schools, colleges and universities have other responsibilities. They often have to teach other subjects, mark papers, create exams, meet with parents, and research and write on their own. Acting teachers who run their own schools are required to look after the financial, supervisory, and management duties which go along with having an independent business.
