The Howard Fine Acting Studio, generally speaking, is geared slightly more towards theater. It also has a slightly more complicated structure than just taking a scene study course. I’ll admit, when I audited I was a little confused. The amount of different classes and the way you go about taking all of them was overwhelming. But, maybe you’ll have a different experience if you check it out. Potential students are required to attend a free Monday night audit of Howard Fine’s master class, which is followed by an orientation and Q & A with Howard himself. You must call in advanced to reserve a spot.
If you like what you see, you are then required to take the 12-Week Foundation Course, which is divided into two 6-week modules. Once completed, you are placed into an on-going scene study class, which is divided into the standard Beginning-Intermediate-Master model. From my understanding. Again, attend the audit to get a full understanding of the requirements.
Howard Fine is well-regarded as a fine acting coach and his studio has an equally respectable reputation in the industry. In 2006 he was named “Best Acting Teacher in Los Angeles” in Back Stage West’s “Best of Los Angeles” issue.
