Coaching Overview – Acting

Our Coaching Team

Coaching with MTCA is a personalized process to help you discover material that speaks to your authentic self from the inside out, not from the outside in. Drawing from an extensive database and knowledge of audition material, our coaches collaborate with you throughout the process.  

Our Coaching Services aren’t just for high school students. If you’re taking a gap year, transferring schools, or applying to graduate-level programs, our coaches can help. 

At MTCA, we have you covered. Beyond our artistic preparation, we will help you with the organizational, strategic, and psychological aspects of the process that can make it so daunting. Our holistic approach helps you to unlock your most authentic version of you — and allows you to enjoy the journey!

Coaching Services – Acting

All MTCA Coaching is available a la carte to fit your goals and budget. We are headquartered in New York City with in-person coaching available in NY, CA, UT, GA, MD, PA, and NC. MTCA offers virtual coaching and events to students across the country and around the world. Our services include:

  • Audition Monologue Selection: Our collaborative selection process allows you to choose and develop material that showcases your true authentic self from your skillset to your personality quirks and expresses who you are and what you love.
  • Audition Monologue Preparation: Through one-on-one coaching, group classes, mock auditions, and faculty masterclasses, our team will prepare you to approach your audition year with artistry, from prescreens through the live auditions.
  • Singing/Movement Preparation: From helping you with the 16-bar song you will need at many acting schools, to movement calls at our Mock Auditions, we prepare our Actors to meet their Vocal and Movement needs and interests. If Actors have a foot in both camps and want to dabble in a few Musical Theater schools, they can supplement with any Musical Theater training they would like.
  • Prescreen Preparation: From artistic preparation to technical assistance, we’ll help you feel confident in all of your choices before you hit record.

Dive deeper into your craft with events and services exclusive to MTCA students.

MTCA Exclusive Auditions

MTCA is fortunate to have relationships with competitive acting and musical theater programs. Our 2021 students were offered exclusive access to the following auditions:

Private Auditions

In 2021, Baldwin-Wallace and Shenandoah held private audition days for MTCA Students only. This year held online, they are normally held in NYC, offering a convenient travel opportunity to our families. Several students are accepted from these auditions each year.

Walk-In Auditions

In 2021, MTCA was thrilled to offer access to private online “walk-in” auditions, due to the lack of opportunity presented by not having Unifieds in-person. We had many students accepted during these days, and many of our 2021 students fell in love during their auditions and have decided to attend! 

Unifieds Green Room & Warm-Ups

Our coaches are on-site at every Unifieds audition location cheering our students on! We offer a free warm-up and special green room access that give you the most comfortable audition experience possible.
