Verve Studios



Private coaching is available for those students who wish to prepare for an upcoming audition, or need individual attention. Focus can include: monologues, audition preparation, audition taping and career guidance. This is a great way for beginners to get aquainted with the studio in preparation for joining a group class. All levels are welcome; ages 8 and up (will consider 6 or 7 year olds on a case-by-case basis.)

Verve also offers taping of auditions for out of town casting. Depending on the length of the sides, and if the actor is off book, a 45- or 60-minute session should be sufficient for the taping and post-production. If not off book, consider a 90-mn session or a 2-hour session.

Video auditions include the use of camera, lighting, reader off camera, and post-production (compression and delivery of file).

COST: $50/60 minutes • $45/45 minutes • $40/30-minutes • $75/90 minutes
