Seth Michael May, affordable and gifted acting coach to Reiko Aylesworth (Michelle Dressler on 2, AvP2, Lost) and Charlie Hofheimer (Mad Men, The Village, Black Hawk Down, Numb3ers and Blur), as well as many other working actors in Film, Television, and Theatre.

"My work is individually tailored to each student to help them achieve their artistic goals and get work in the business. My technique is based on finding yourself in the character and bringing that out in specific accessible ways. Since 1988 I have been a working actor and I've been coaching since 1995. My hours are flexible. When we meet we can talk and I can gather how I can structure a program to get you to be the best you can be. After that, we get straight to work on monologues, audition pieces or whatever we agree is needed to make the actor feel sharper, confident, instinctive and more complete." - Seth Michael

WHAT AGENTS/MANAGERS SAY:
"Whenever any of my clients are heading in for a big audition, I have them head over to Seth first. I can count on Seth to guide them to their best work, giving them the clarity, confidence and specificity of purpose so they know they'll walk in the door and "nail it"—their way! My clients have consistently received callbacks and bookings after coaching with Seth. It makes good business sense to me to make sure everyone gets in a session with Seth before they go in for their appointment."

Seth Michael loves to be creative, and has shown to me that creativity enmeshes, and encompasses his life. He lives, breathes, and sleeps as a creator. What does that mean to you as an actor, you ask? Simple: When you choose to work with him, you will never get stuck. Seth Michael's invention, imagination, and discipline will work wonders for you as a person and an actor. You ever hang out with someone who is just so enthusiastic about it that it rubs off on you too? That's Seth Michael. He is constantly seeking new sources of inspiration, and new ways of understanding and working at the craft. You will be pleased with how your work develops and grows after a session with him."
-Scott Hoye actor and certified Hypnotist
"Seth Michael made a light bulb go off inside me that allowed me to act from my fear, my nervousness, like no other teacher has done before. Basically he told me to use whatever I was feeling, and that registered for me and I began to feel more confident in my auditioning."
