"I am truly amazed at how effective and insightful Melissa Skoff is at her direction and constructive comments concerning the interpretation and performance of cold reading. The outcome from the initial decisions actors made to the end result, after listening to the direction of Melissa, really made me a believer in the efficacy of her talents. I learned so much in just a few classes! She is a true experienced professional and gifted in the field of acting direction. I would highly recommend her classes or private instruction to anyone who is seriously and honestly considering an acting career."
“Whenever anybody asks me how I got into acting here, I tell them about you. I tell them I was in grad school and took an acting class from Melissa Skoff, who just happened to be the casting director of my favorite childhood TV show! Thanks for being such a great coach. You are certainly a huge part of what has gotten me this far. As the Dukes would say “YEEEEEEE HAAAAW!”

Melissa's class is a GREAT way to really uplevel your career. Not only is she one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, she also really knows what she's doing. She gives you insider advice that will help you book the job. She works with you so that your auditions and your work will be at the booking level. With many years of experience, she has a great instinct about what each actor needs and what they can do to get there. She really takes the time to work with you which can be rare in L.A. acting classes. Take her class, you'll love it!
“I cannot thank you enough for the illuminating “casting” exercise we did in last night’s class. That exercise did more to clarify the audition process than reading or listening to 100 opinions, books, or discussions on the subject. It underscored for me the necessity of keeping my energies on the “work”…letting go of the misplaced angst on the results and of the audition process. Thank you, your help is inspiring.”
