  • Everything you need to know...by someone who's been through it

    Hey there, I'm Amelia!

     

    And I've been EXACTLY where you are.

     

    Spending hours agonizing over applications. 

     

    Wondering how the hell to prepare for interviews.

     

    Panicking about how I’d pay for this if I got in.

     

    And oh yeah…stressing about what monologues were right for the audition.

     

    Some may say I’m a bit of an overachiever because I have an MA and an MFA but honestly, I just really love teaching and learning and, well, performing!

  • And I learned a LOT of hard lessons during my MFA audition process.

    I did what so many actors do...

     

    I had a friend offer me a little feedback on my audition and I crossed my fingers through the rest of the process.

     

    And now that I have the benefit of SO much hindsight, I know that I needed an experienced MENTOR and a COMMUNITY to get me through this process.

     

    Because sure, I got into my ideal program but the process took a big toll on my mental and physical health.

  • The MFA application and audition process isn't a sprint.

    Like your acting career, this is a marathon. It’s imperative to start early, research the shit out of programs and really understand the best options for you. All of this prepares you to wow your perfect schools during your auditions, interviews and callbacks.

     

    Every MFA program is different. Finding the programs that fit you as an artist and a human is critical for the audition process and for your ultimate success and happiness once you are accepted.

     

    YOU NEED TO BE PICKY ABOUT THE PROGRAMS YOU APPLY TO!

     

    Most coaches will just help you with a great audition package and of course, that’s a BIG, IMPORTANT piece but it's far from the only piece. 

  •  

    Amelia was really great and gave me wonderful feedback. She helped me find more of an objective for each of my pieces and helped to find good places of context to add to my contemporary piece. She aslo helped me find more exhilirating flow in my Shakespeare piece. I really do recommend working with Amelia for their MFA Auditions.
