Learn From A Professional – Kevin Spacey Teaches Acting
I always think you need to find the best person, and then learn all you can from them. The problem is that most acting teachers are people who didn’t make it as actors. So they are definitely not the best. Well, now you can learn from the best. I came across an advertisement promoting a MasterClass with Kevin Spacey.
Why Learn From A Star?
House of Card is one of my favorite TV shows, and Kevin Spacey does not need an introduction. We know him from things like The Usual Suspects and American Beauty. We all know he is a fantastic actor, and learning from a two-time Academy Award winner is something very special.
The MasterClass costs only $90 and it will give you his approach to acting in an exlusive five hour online class. If you learned just one skill, get one new idea, learn one practical technique; wouldn’t it be worth it.
The same website also has a course with Dustin Hoffman if you prefer him more, or want twice the amount of acting experience and wisdom.
Here’s a great summary of the course by the teacher himself!
Should You Try It?
Whether you go and sign up doesn’t matter to me. I don’t get paid for endorsing these courses. I just wanted to share with you the importance of continuously learning new skills and techniques. I also honestly believe there is no one better to learn from, than people that have done it. People that are successful leave clues, and you can learn from their experience, learn from the mistakes, and find short cuts to get to where they are.
Watching a five-hour class is clearly not going to guarantee you become a legendary actor just like Kevin Spacey. Of course not. But it certainly will improve your chances of getting that next part, doing well in that next audition and learning those skills you just have to know to succeed in the theater world.
