AUDITION COACHING: SCHOOL OF UNLEARNING

WHAT IS THE SCHOOL OF UNLEARNING?

Created to reconnect actors with the essence of their work, the School of Unlearning teaches actors to "forget" the confusing and contradictory things they've been told to believe. By developing an artist's sense of self, Unlearning frees actors from the constraints of expectations and helps them to develop work that is simple, engaged, compelling and marketable.

To book an individual coaching session, contact Riley via email. More information about group coaching classes is listed below.

WHAT IS THE FORMAT?

 

Group classes at the School of Unlearning are designed for 8 STUDENTS and run for 3 hours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classes begin with a 16-bar group audition in true NYC style. After the audition, each student will have 20 minutes to coach any material they wish. The coaching is done in front of the rest of the class to maximize benefits for all students. The class concludes with another 16-bar group audition, giving each student the chance to incorporate the feedback they received and observed.

The cost for a 3-hour group Unlearning session is $50 per student. Individualized coaching sessions are $60/hour.

TESTIMONIALS:

Erin Maya

Wearing Black (Off-Broadway), The Donkey Show (ART)

RIley Thomas sees, hears and understands people's true essence. It is easy to unconsciously develop bad habits when you're trying to get it "right" - Riley helps you unlearn all of that crap and brings you home to that place of honesty where you truly shine as both a performer and a human. My work with him has been monumental in the practice of my craft and my growth as an artist.

Miss Saigon (Tour), Carousel (NAAP), Fishing for Wives (Off-Broadway)

Through Riley's tutelage you learn that singing a song is only the beginning. He teaches to understand the idea of telling the story. Riley has a way of showing you how each word has a meaning, each sentence has a meaning, weaving a story not only through music and voice but also through the essence of the story.
