My teaching philosophy is that every student has the right to learn and feel like they belong. I do my best to prepare each lesson adequately to ensure responsible and consistent learning is achieved in my classes. I also value inclusivity and representation from diverse backgrounds (POC & LGBQTI+). Performing and becoming a character is a cathartic, confidence building experience that I recommend everyone should try!
Don't worry if you haven't done any acting before! I will help guide you through the techniques I have learnt from my teachers, and methods I have used over the years.
I am available to teach the following content online, or in a studio space within the Perth Metropolitan region;
- Script analysis.
- Acting for Screen.
- Acting for Theatre.
- Presenting to camera.
- Blocking - Stage directions with actors.
- Voice work - Preparing the voice for text.
- Anne Bogart's Viewpoints System (Movement).
- ATAR Drama Practical tutoring.
- WAAPA/NIDA/VCA/QUT Monologue Audition preparation.
- Audition 'Self-tape' set up and reading.
Lessons usually run for 45 mins - 1 hour and consist of a mini lecture, a workshop, then concluding with a one-on-one discussion.

Perfect! Great session
Perfect! The lessons went really well, broke everything down so it was understandable, he sent notes after lessons so I could look over things and practice and was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Perfect! With well-prepared lessons, Joel has provided me with insight and understanding of how one utilizes the skill of acting. They're great and fun and I advise anyone to reach out and contact Joel if they're curious or in need of help with rehearsing.
Robin is a student who takes on feedback well and demonstrates a fantastic work ethic. Looking forward to future lessons!
