A little about your instructor: Fay Beck trained in the Meisner Technique in Sydney with teachers that trained with Sanford Meisner. She graduated top of her class in 2006. Since graduating she taught the craft privately in Sydney before her recent move to London where she has begun to take the course to the next level. She discovered Meisner during her early undergraduate days whilst studying Psychology at the University of Sydney. She has since developed this weekly programme and created the Actors Door Studio to bring Meisner to would-be professional actors as well as to any individual interested in re-connecting with their instinctive self. Her professional and academic knowledge of Psychology informs her unique approach to Meisner Technique. She is a filmmaker and writer and has a passion for teaching Meisner.

WHY STUDY IT HERE:
Meisner classes at the Actors Door Studio are unique. They are designed to progressively take you out of your comfort zone at a pace you are comfortable with and in line with your individual strengths and weaknesses. The Actors Door Studio is different; Meisner Technique is the only acting method we teach and comprises the core of our actor training program. We do not offer classes in alternative acting methods simply because we have found they are not as effective as the Meisner Technique in eliciting truthful, powerful performances on stage and on screen. We are Meisner specialists who teach the ‘modern’ version, the most recent version, of the acting technique.
Our other point of difference is our insistence on quality as opposed to quantity. We purposely keep class numbers small so students can take maximum benefit from the teacher’s specialist instruction. If you graduate from the Actors Door Studio, you will be part of a select number of actors to do so.
