I have learned so much from Wayne's class; coming from production work, my first hurdle in Wayne's class was to overcome my nerves of being on stage! Wayne teaches you techniques to overcome self-consciousness...I'm now auditioning and booking small jobs (one step at a time...), and I credit that to the work I've done in Wayne's class.
The other tool I've gained, is the ability to connect, and stay connected to my scene or exercise partner. This skill is something I've started using in my daily life, in auditions (with casting directors, etc) and has definitely helped me get into many people's good graces...Once you are aware, and begin practicing connecting with others, you are truly able to live moment-to-moment as an actor (at least....you get a LOT better at it...)
Wayne stresses being natural, and as a result it's taken away a lot of the fear of acting...if you just have to be yourself (at least in the first year of training...he focuses on character the second year), you always have the power to know if you are doing a good job....
Wayne reads people's emotions and pretenses very well, and he tells you exactly what critique/feedback you need to hear to take yourself to the next level...sometimes the class can be emotionally draining....but on those days you know you've done good work. It's almost like taking a medicine...sometimes it doesn't taste good, but once you start seeing the results you are immeasurable grateful...with Wayne...you see results...not just yours, but everybody's.
As for the business side...Wayne will give you advice on your head shots, give you tips on how to take them, don insights into your casting, and shed bites of wisdom, stories and anecdotes to help you learn and make you laugh. I look forward to these each class...
Lastly, Wayne starts each class with vocal exercises and diction...use these tools before any audition and it will help you go in there speaking strongly. He also knows how to use Meisner in comedy...and coming into the class with a love of humor...his ability to take a serious technique and apply it to something less dramatic (but still as truthful) is something I respect and value immensely. Great price, great class...you'll learn a lot.
