Amy has been training and coaching professional actors since 2009. She approaches scripts with an expert’s eye; she guides performers to the truest and most effective possible interaction with the writing and with their scene partners. She learned improvisation with Lyn Pierse and Stella Adler technique with Lynette Sheldon; in 2013 she refined her acting teaching with an immersive course at the Anthony Meindl Actor Workshop in LA and went on to open his Sydney studio. Anthony’s open-hearted, right-brained approach to acting and life is the perfect distillation of Amy’s beliefs about coaching and performance.
