Private Coaching Sessions: Private Coaching is essential to prepare you for auditions, meeting with agents, casting directors, producers, directors, and/or theater companies. They are available on request with flexible scheduling. Sessions can be done in the studio as well as Skype or FaceTime.

Audition Taping

AUDITION TAPING WITH COACHING: Many auditions now are done as a "self-tape" audition.  Despite not being in front of a live audience, these can still be nerve-racking.  CAAW offers remote sessions with a flexible schedule to help you prepare for these.  In addition, CAAW offers private, one-on-one taping sessions where students take advantage of Professional Coaching and CAAW's comfortable studio setting to help you nail your audition!  Students can use CAAW's 4K camera and even have it edited with text, or bring your own camera or smartphone.  Highly recommended for those important auditions!
