For the monologue classes on Tuesday and Thursday nights, the rate is $40/class x 8 = $320.00
To reserve a space you must give or send me a $100 deposit; the balance is due at the first class.
Class Rates for the Free Class
The free class on September 26 is free. Sometimes people ask me about this. It is described on the main page.
Private Coaching Rates
I will coach you privately for the modest sum of $90/hour. I have to charge that much or nobody would take me seriously. But read on.
If you are in my class and want a private session, the rate is the rate for the monologue class which at the moment is $40/hour.
Psychiatrists define an hour as 50 minutes. An "hour" session with me lasts about an hour and 20 minutes, or until the student falls over from fatigue. It takes that long to get real work accomplished.
Since nobody should pay $90 for a pig in a poke, if you want to coach with me, you have to come and meet me first in a free 45-minute (approximately) working session. If, after that meeting, you think I'm helpful, you can set up the next session, for which you'll have to pay the $90. The third session also costs $90.
Starting with the fourth session (after the free one and two at $90/hour), the rate goes down to $50/hour and stays there for the rest of my life.
If you coach with me for an audition, no matter how many sessions we have, I will want to see you--for free--at the last instant before the audition, night before or day of, if possible. This is to make sure that I have not inadvertently said something that put you on the wrong track.
If you are already a student of mine, the rates will stay the same as what you have been paying.
Call or write me if this isn't sufficiently confusing.
