NOTE: Classes can now be conducted in person (in Wallasey) or online via video call. Online classes work well and save time and costs on travel.

Whether you’re applying for drama school, have a forthcoming audition for theatre, radio, tv or film, would like guidance with a script or wish to improve your acting technique, I can certainly help. I can even guide you through the process of creating your own one person play!

If you work in business I can also offer assistance with your public speaking and presentation skills. As well as actors and a host of other entertainers I have also worked with a range of business professionals including doctors, barristers and even a bomb blast expert.

I also teach children individually or in pairs and can prepare them for LAMDA examinations and others.

I’m Martin Harris. I’m the audition coach. You can find out more about me on The Coach page.

“One-to-one tuition with Martin has really helped me develop my acting, particularly in the areas of characterisation, emotion, thought processes and much more besides. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious, yet he also manages to teach in a relaxed manner that helps you produce your best work. In short, I would say that tuition with Martin has untold benefits for anyone serious about improving their acting skills.” – Andy McGowan (former student)

Most sessions are on a one-to-one basis. These are private lessons. However, if you’d like to work with an associate or friend then I’m happy to see two of you at once – at no extra cost. Sessions are very flexible and I can generally see you during the day, in the evening or at weekends. As I also work as an actor and director my availability depends on my current schedule, so we just need to find a mutually convenient time and day.

I’m based in Wallasey in Merseyside which is very accessible by car and public transport (my home / office is literally next to Wallasey Grove Road train station). Clients travel from all over the Wirral, Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire to see me as well as from parts of the Midlands and Wales. I can also conduct lessons via Zoom, Skype, Teams, WhatsApp or Google Meet or can travel to you if you prefer.
