Sessions are charged at £30 per hour.
Fees are usually paid in cash on the day of the session. If you’d prefer to pay via BACS, credit/debit card or paypal in advance then please let me know and it can be arranged. Any sessions via Skype need to be paid in advance.
A few guidelines.
Most clients book 1 – 2 hours at a time, although discounts are available for half or full days. Sessions take place at my dedicated office / rehearsal space at my home in Wallasey, Merseyside, however, if it’s more convenient for you and you have a suitable space then I can come to you. Travel expenses plus travelling time (at £15 per hour), will be payable on top of the fee, so it may be worth considering at least a 2 – 3 hour session under those circumstances.
If you’re a professional actor preparing for a specific audition you’re only likely to need one 2 hour session, for those applying to drama school probably 5 to 20 sessions depending on how many pieces you need, how much work you do at home and how organised you are. If you’re wishing to improve your acting technique, sight-reading, presentation, etc more generally you might wish to come for regular sessions until you reach your chosen goal.
Whatever your circumstances there is, of course, no long term commitment and you’re welcome to come along for 1 session to see how you feel about it before committing to further appointments. If you’d like to attend with a friend or associate to work as a pair I can easily accommodate that too – at no extra cost.
Appointments can be booked during the day, in the evening or at the weekend.
I consider any appointments made with you as a genuine commitment and I trust that you do too. I know that circumstances can arise which mean that a booking needs to be rearranged for another time or day and on very rare occasions I might even have to do that myself. In order that we can plan our time accordingly and as a courtesy to both of us, however, I ask that any changes are made with a minimum of 24 hours notice. For under 24 hours notice, I have in place a mutually beneficial cancellation policy:
If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice of a booking the full fee will be payable. If I cancel a session within 24 hours of a booking then the rearranged session will be given free of charge.
