The Screen Acting Studio is located in Los Angeles, California. Our address is 7600 Melrose Ave, Suite K, Los Angeles, CA 90046. Click here for directions.

All new students must first REGISTER, and then sign up for an ORIENTATION SESSION. All new students must take this one-time class for placement in the appropriate class. Once they have taken the Orientation, you will be a Member of the studio, and have access to sign up for the class you’ve been placed in. If you have experience, you may be able to sign up for our special classes without taking the Orientation.

All students must take an Orientation Session before auditing a class. Audits are available to Aaron’s Master Classes on a four-week basis for a fee. Please contact the studio for more info.

The right class for you will be based on a combination of your experience level, and what kind of skills you are looking to build. We have Technique, Scene Study (the bridge from technique into scene work), and the Masterclasses. We also offer Audition technique classes on a bi-monthly basis. All of our classes are designed to teach you a process of creating truthful behavior in the imaginary world of the script. During the Orientation Intensive, we will discuss which class is right for you. It is rare that we place you in the wrong class, but we are always open to discussion and re-assessment.

For some students, working privately is the best option. We tailor private coaching to your personal needs, whether it’s audition coaching, beginning technique, or coaching you in the business of acting.
We are here to help! For class placement, please get in touch.

Yes, please check out info on private coaching HERE

All our acting classes are for adults only (18+).

Classes are generally between 12 and 20 students. We make sure to keep class size small so that everyone has a chance to work, and has individualized attention.

We know that landing an acting job can be a difficult journey, and we’re here to support you through that process. Although we cannot promise that you book work, we will prepare you for auditions and help you develop a career strategy. 

By joining our acting community you will be connected to a network of other actors who are on a similar journey. Connect with them and share advice, as well as keep in touch with your course mentors. They have years of experience in the acting industry and can offer advice, tips, and contacts that you may need on your journey to landing that first acting job.
