At TAS+SD, we bring out the BEST in each young artist.  Instead of placing technique upon them, our students work to discover their talents and gifts from within.  What results are artists that are empowered and unique. It is our mission to help each artist develop their own voice.  Training is geared towards each student's specific needs and goals, utilizing a variety of techniques to help them feel confident, successful, and creative. 

Private lessons are offered at TAS+SD in the following areas:

VOICE (musical theatre, pop, country, classical, blues, jazz)

ACTING

AUDITION PREP

COLLEGE AUDITION PREP

ON-CAMERA AUDITIONS (We can film and edit your college pre-screens and video submissions in studio.)

SONG WRITING

PLAY WRITING

Lessons are available to students ages 6 - adult, and generally last one hour.  Younger students will often do 30 minute lessons, and students who are working on specific projects will often work for 90 minutes - 2 hours.  Lessons are taught by TAS+SD Founder and Director Courtney Corey

Our students have been accepted into top universities such as: Carnegie Mellon University, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, University of Michigan, Pace University, University of California Irvine, University of California San Diego, Loyola Marymount University, Northwestern University, Emerson College, San Diego State University and Vanguard University.  We have students on U.S National Tours, at Tokyo Disneyland, and in leading regional theatres such as The Old Globe.  Whether you are prepping for Broadway auditions or looking to play leading roles at your school, private coaching at TAS+SD will help you to develop your craft and become successful in pursuing your goals.


"I have to start by saying thank you, I really cannot thank you enough for all you did to help prepare me for my auditions. I needed a guide and you truly showed me the way. Thanks to you, the auditions were fun and enjoyable and I was reminded, at audition after audition, how much I love theatre. From monologues to portfolios and everything in between, I will be forever grateful for all that you did. Thank you for helping me grow as an actor and discover new things about myself. 

In early March I was accepted, and had committed to, Fordham Universtiy-Lincoln Center for Directing, but at the end of March, I had also been given a spot on the wait list for Carnegie Mellon. I was sure that I wouldn't get off the list so I started making plans for Fordham and was excited to move to NYC. However, on May 5th I got some exciting news and I am now honored and humbled to tell you that I was accepted to the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama for Directing and will attend this fall. The path was crazy and the wait was long, but I could not be more thrilled to start school. The community has been so welcoming and the program is amazing beyond belief. Seriously, thank you so much for all of your help. I really could not have done this without you."

MORE ABOUT PRIVATE LESSONS:

Most students are scheduled on a regular basis 2-4 times per month. They pay for their month of lessons at the beginning of each month, in order to secure their time slots.  Some students schedule their lessons a la carte.  All a la carte students will be seen time permitting.  Payments can either be made by credit card, check (payable to: Theatre Arts School of San Diego, LLC), or cash.  All students must pay for the lessons for the month (whether it is 2 lessons, 4 lessons, or more) by the first lesson of each month.

If a student must cancel a lesson, they must do so at least 24 prior to lesson, in order to not be charged for the lesson. If a student misses a lesson, rescheduling may be accommodated at the discretion of the instructor.
