The Meisner Technique Meets the Meyer Method

Sanford Meisner, one of the fathers of modern acting, summed up his unique technique as "the art of living truthfully under imaginary circumstances." 

At Howard Meyer Acting, our classes help you foster a connection to your personal truths: What you value and where you feel deeply. 

You will learn how to apply those insights to the creative process of acting, and you will discover, to your delight, the incomparable joy of fully-formed creative expression. 

The Meyer Method – named for our founder Howard Meyer, who leads the acting school -- draws on a combination of exercises developed by the best theater minds of the 20th Century. 

We help you build a craft that is personal and accessible. The exercises help you make the creative leap into the imaginary world of the play and the inner life of the character.
