"Working with Kyla Schoer has been a game changer for me. She has a talent for getting right to the meat of a scene and the core of a character. Kyla has taught me how to get out of my head and start enjoying the audition process. Most of all, she helps me bring more "me" into the audition room. I have definitely noticed an increase in callbacks since we started working together."
ERIC LOVE (PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, New York Theatre Workshop)
From week to week, how often do you get to exercise your ACTING MUSCLES in a situation outside of auditioning, rehearsing, or any other result-based situations?
In this crazy industry, it’s very easy to get wrapped up in “trying to make it” and to lose touch with the CREATIVE HEART of why we originally got into this field. I find that the more I hone my skills, the more I keep exercising and exploring new avenues of expression, the easier the business side becomes. I reconnect to WHY I deal with the politics of it all - to get to our ultimate goal: TO CREATE.
When you coach with me, we focus on that process, more than on the outcome (like booking a gig). From my experiences on both sides of the casting table (as a reader and assistant for theater companies and casting agencies such as Roundabout, Brette Goldstein Casting, Herman & Lipson Casting), I’ve found that when you do focus on fully inhabiting and enjoying the work, the results often happen on their own.
SO! LET’S CREATE TOGETHER!
This won’t be me “teaching-you-how-to-act”, but a collaborative process to help uncover the INSTINCTS YOU ALREADY HAVE AND HELP YOU CONNECT PERSONALLY TO YOUR WORK.
If you’re intrigued and want to know more about my approach, rates and package deals, let’s chat.
CAN’T WAIT TO PLAY.
"While one of my strengths is actively engaging with other actors and being completely present with my energy, an opposing 'weakness' has been my 'technical toolbox' - Kyla excels in helping actors with both! I worked with Kyla recently on script breakdown and she is fantastic....alleviating some of my frustration and helping me flex that technical muscle properly."

"There are not enough words to describe the positive experience I had working with Kyla. She has a passion and intent to work with you on creating and evolving your best work. She made me feel safe and comfortable, while pushing me to find and develop my confidence as an actor. Whenever I have an audition or book a role, I call Coach Kyla because I know I will always come out stronger and bring my best work. I am so thankful for Kyla and highly recommend working with her if you want to improve your work as an actor."

"I needed a new look at a set of sides I have been using off and on recently. She not only offered a new look, she helped me identify patterns and beat changes in the script that I had not picked up on my own. We had a great session today, I cannot wait for another session and to audition with a fresh look at my old sides."
