Hey UCB Message Board, My name is James Mastraieni and I'd like to coach you.

(Hey guys, Below is my updated availability. I'm currently coaching 6 groups a week and looking to add a few more.

IMPROV CREDENTIALS:
-Current member of new UCBLA Harold team, Outside Dog.
-Former member of UCBLA Harold team, The Ruckus.
-Current member of weekly iOWest house team Orpheus Roy 3 years and running
-Former member of iOWest Harold teams The Cartel and Sweeterhouse a combined 4 years
-Numerous Indy teams
-Toured with the Second City Theatrical Touring company for 2 years

TEACHING/COACHING CREDENTIALS:
-Current teacher at iOWest
-Former teacher at The Beverly Hills Playhouse
-Coached two "award winning" iOWest Harold teams
-Currently coaching 6 groups a week

PHILOSOPHY: I have studied and performed extensively at all three comedy institutions (UCB, iOWest, Second City). I have developed a very practical approach to scene work that combines both the writing and acting side of the art form. My approach is..
-Base your game in human behavior
-Justify it with good human intention
-Frame it into a situation with stakes by making it personal
-Use honest emotion and relationship for nuance and believability
-Exhibit behavior over and over in a fun and unpredictable fashion through that character's filter (POV).
I also will help you avoid what I call "Improv Traps" that instantly lead a scene to fail.

We will have fun, work hard, and you will get better.

Rate: $30/hr

AVAILABILITY:
Mon- Anytime before 7pm
Tuesday- Anytime after 2pm
Wed- N/A
Thurs-Anytime before 7pm
