Drama Teacher and Mum of aspiring Actor and Singer.
I am so pleased to have the opportunity to recommend these amazing coaching to you. I recommend them to you as both a Drama teacher and as a Mum of an aspiring young actor.
First of all, these courses are powered by an amazing lady. Sylvia really cares about her message, projects and her students. I have been so impressed by the support and positivity she has shared with both my son and myself.
I first came across the Monologue Mastery courses when my son applied for one of the films Sylvia was producing. Her input has really inspired him. He followed all her guidance and created a selection of monologues so he could show a variety of aspects of his acting ability to create different characters. He has embraced her warm-up techniques and is much more confident in the whole audition process. We have many conversations based on the things that Sylvia writes and I genuinely feel that this information has helped him fine-tune his film and Theatre goals.
As a Mum I would also like to highlight that the courses inspire life skills that work across all aspects of life, ‘be prepared, likeable and easy to work with’ is true in the classroom, sports field and work place.
I am also a Drama Teacher for children. I see the power of Drama and Theatre to build young people’s confidence and resilience. I have imparted many of the courses amazing ideas to my students. I love some of the exercises that Sylvia suggests. My students loved the session we did on talking gibberish to each other. Often I find in improvisation, it is hard to concentrate on showing an emotion when you are trying to think of the right words to say. The students were able to really show emotion in their actions and faces as they did not have to focus on appropriate words. They also loved our session on laughing which was another idea I implemented from Sylvia. When the students had explored the power of laughter we then talked about the feelings and emotions evoked. They stunned me with some of their responses.
I feel that the knowledge, warmth and experience of Sylvia is evident in all aspects of her work, The positive impact of following her training and brilliantly articulated ideas can empower each and every one of us.
Hi there. My name is Isaac and I am a young actor and singer. I have been working with Sylvia for the last 6 months. I applied to be part of her latest film and through that I was lucky enough to become part of her Monologue Mastery Acting Course.
The first thing I would like to say is how much I really believe Sylvia cares about her students. Every email we wrote and questions we had were answered straight away. She has really supported me towards my goals and her wise words have helped clarify what my goals are.
As a young actor, I am always excited to go to auditions. Being part of the Monologue Mastery Acting Course has improved my preparation 100%. Sylvia encouraged me to build up a selection of monologues rather than just having one that I used over and over again. This has improved how I feel when I get to an audition. I know that not only have I prepared the requested piece but I can show them my acting skills by quickly switching to another character. I have also used this approach with my singing preparation.
The course is going great!
I’m really enjoying studying The monologue and I was fascinated by your journey in this industry.
What I found very interesting was learning about the archetypes and how every character and person fit into mainly one of them. This has really helped me connect with characters from my own monologues and I will definitely use this in the future.
I really appreciate the Actors Inspirational Journal. I loved the layout of all the pages with the inspirational quotes and pictures, my favourite being: “Without wonder and insight, acting is just a business. With it, it becomes creation.” By Bete Davis. I look forward to experimenting with this journal. Many Thanks.
What I found very beneficial about the coaching course was learning your character before lines. Also, the acting method was you should be as your character for a day and really imagine how the character will speak walk, e.t.c. As I'm auditioning for Alex I pretended to be a bad boy with no regrets. I really appreciate you taking the time to create this course as I have learnt new things that will help through my acting career. Thank you.
Sylvia Love Johnson is a force of nature with her passion and her ability to breakdown acting techniques. I have appreciated her commitment and her ability to inspire, challenge and support young talent. My daughter has greatly benefited from the coaching sessions and precious advice. Thanks so much.
I would recommend Sylvia very very highly as an acting career coach. Her coaching and mentoring of my son Ross,13, has been top drawer. Sylvia is so clever and talented and has an immense wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Her gentle, positive and bubbly personality is just perfect to draw a young, occasionally-awkward person like Ross out of himself and help him believe anything is possible.
Sylvia nurtures the relationship with Ross and with myself in order that we can be the best supportive unit that we can be and we both love her to bits.
In the world of Lights, Sound, Camera, Action, Cut - Indeed Acting Career Coach insights and inputs help in keeping grounded and close to reality both in real life and reel life. Thus, actors live life as acting and act as living life. Thanks much.

I came face to face with my soul. That's how I felt after reading this authors book. The first time I read it I felt like there it is, the words are on the page, and they're speaking to you. My inner self was shaking me; it's right there on the page. I went to the journal again to read it and do the exercises and write down my truth.
I meditated on the words, and then I heard my soul. 'What about you. Can you do this? The journal says I can. I started writing about why I felt the way I did about myself, my talent. Why did I stop? I thought I wasn't good enough, but by reading and journaling, I realized I had to share my talent, not isolate and think I'm not good enough. My soul sounded in me, 'yes, it's time'.
This journal is fantastic. I feel reborn, and if I start feeling like I can't, I read this journal and my writings, and I know that yes I can. It's wonderful. We should all love and be passionate about what we're doing. I am the only person that can do what I do. I can do whatever my soul urges me to do. My creativity, as a result, has increased, and I'm 100% confident that I can do my art like no one else. Sylvia Love Johnson has written a very helpful journal. I recommend whoever you are or whatever you do, this journal will help you develop a stronger you. Then listen to your soul. It's easy.
Inspirational, very much worth it, time well spent! Thank you to Sylvia for her hard work and for sharing this journal with us. Great tools highly recommend!
