Teaching



Ben Nordstrom Actor’s Workshop    


     Regardless of your talent or skill, when it comes to auditioning there is no substitute for proper preparation.  The most successful actors are not successful just because they’re “lucky” or “really talented”.  They know exactly how they need to prepare for every audition.

     There are countless variables in the audition process over which you have no control.  In our sessions, we will focus on the things that you can control.  You will leave your audition knowing that you have done everything within your power to get the role.

     Your session with me is your time and it will be customized to focus on what you feel you need most.  We can cover:


·      Monologue preparation

·      Musical theatre – Acting the song

·      Cold reading skills

·      Scene work with a reader or scene partner

·      On-Camera technique

·      Professional audition etiquette
