You're already good.  Let's make you great.

Private acting coaching online from anywhere in the world is available now for the very low rate of $35/hr ($25 for current students).  Payment is super-easy with Venmo or PayPal.
Acting instructor Lara Morton has had an extremely strong success rate helping her students achieve their acting goals in the past few months.  Out of two students who pursued her help for admission auditions, one was accepted to their top college choice, and the other secured the single available spot at an arts conservatory high school. That's a 100% success rate!  
Students with professional representation are regularly getting callbacks and additional auditions after just an hour or two of coaching with Ms. Morton. Zoom is proving very effective for audition prep (including television/film self-tapes and voiceover work), and we can also help you strengthen general or specific acting skills this way.  Contact us today to discuss your goals and we will forge a plan together to help you achieve your greatest dreams.
Please contact Lara Morton at to schedule a session today!
