This is a fun, high-energy, 16-hour class that is absolutely packed with practical information and skills.
Everyone works in every class. It’s two classes in one:
FEARLESS COLD READING
• A fun, specific 10-point system to commit & connect to all material
• Audition well with little prep time, and prioritize the time you do have
• Learn to quickly assess style, tone and genre to make the best choices
• Know when and when not to move during an audition
• Handle and flourish with bad/flat readers, and take direction easily and fully
• HAVE FUN! Making these skills second nature will dramatically increase the amount of creativity you can bring to each audition.
FEARLESS AUDITION TECHNIQUE
• Learn to handle yourself with confidence & ease under pressure, every time
• Make strong first impressions by practicing fabulous audition etiquette
• Know how, when, and when not to "chat” in the audition room
• Learn the best ways to answer common industry questions
• Learn my signature technique,"How to enter a room.”
• Your BEFORE and AFTER are taped so you can see the (often huge) difference!
• HAVE FUN! Make auditions into opportunities to practice your craft, connect with new people and build relationships.

"This is a fantastic class! It totally changed and vastly improved my audition process. Immediate results garnered bookings for myself and lots of my classmates. I can't recommend this class enough!!" —Carol Beaugard
"Couldn't recommend this class more. Changed the way I audition completely. Biggest change: I actually really enjoy auditioning. Karen is an amazing teacher and her classes are small, so you get to work in each class. There is no better way to start the audition season." —Alex Kuas

More Actor Comments:
I was asked to cold read in a firing squad type situation where three agents watched me read while sitting on a couch about 3 feet away from me. I aced it, and even after previously telling me he had no more room for me on his roster the agent was suddenly trying to make some room. Honestly I would have choked on that cold read and those interviews before I took your class. I feel so much more prepared and I just want to thank you again. —Clem McIntosh
One of the producers pulled me aside to tell me my audition/cold read was one of the best she had seen in the auditions, and that obviously whatever audition classes I had took paid off. This came only weeks after completing your cold reading class.—Jason Barker
I had to cold read at an audition the other day with a casting director and she said, "I can't believe you just got that side 2 minutes ago!" I felt so confident in making bold instinctual choices, so thank you again!
I just got a callback for the first audition I have had since your class and I think listening to my reader, going back to the script and keeping the energy up made an extraordinary difference in both my performance and ability to be open to direction. And, best of all, the audition was really fun.
Thanks to what we learned in class, I'm standing, sitting, and walking taller, and it's made a huge impact on the way I perceive my life. Thank you, for this awesome tool!
—Laura Yumi Snell
Thanks so much for a fantastic class—yet again—and the invaluable cold reading techniques you taught us. Many thanks again for all your help, both inspirational and practical.
My cold reading skills are becoming really sharp by practicing what you taught us in class!
Your fearless cold reading technique helps me feel like I am in so much more control of any character that I am auditioning for and gives me more confidence in the audition room. Your techniques have helped my career tremendously.
My friends have noticed a change in me, not just professionally, and it's partly because of the 'peace' your class has brought me. My auditioning has become stronger and my “Oh S***” moments are much fewer and farther between in a short amount of time. I've sent recommendations to my friends to take your class.
—Maya Lynne Robinson
Your valuable class completely shifted my perspective on auditioning. My auditions have already improved significantly, and I believe this is just the beginning.
I’m using everything I learned in your class. At an important audition recently, I listened to your "big and slow" voice in my head; saved myself from "tight and fast" and got an immediate call back!
Just auditioned for a movie & they said they were blown away by my listening skills - that they could have watched me listen all day! That's thanks to your fearless cold reading lessons. Feeling empowered;)
Using what I learned from your amazing fearless class...the entrance, the posture and most of all the positive energy mind set, I booked a role in an indie film!! Thanks for your helpful wisdom :)
It was just me and the filmmaker. She gave me a quick sketch of my character, then gave me the script and let me read through the page once. Then I read with her while she recorded me on her phone. I kept in mind a few important points that Karen has taught us. When I was done, the filmmaker literally said, "I'm impressed with how well you can cold read." She told me she liked me and that I really "got" what the character was all about. She cast me on the spot.
I got more from your workshop then I could have ever imagined. I'm taking your adjustments and knowledge and will be applying them daily. I've found that your class has made me even more aware and allowed me to adjust what needs to be adjusted before it turns into a habit.
Just booked a role on the next episode of the Blacklist. Off to a good start. Really appreciated your insights and teaching.
Your class has carried me through some kind of breaking point it seems. I managed to not at all be intimidated and garnered the strongest most enthusiastic response I've ever received.
The cold reading class I took with you has helped tremendously. I actually had a director hand me a script at the audition without having had a chance to look it over and I was able to handle it confidently using the tips that I'd learned. Thanks so much.
The cold readings technique I learned in your class last December has proved to be some of the most VALUABLE training I have received!!!
Thank you again, for teaching me Fearless Auditioning. I'm never scared, and I always represent myself with dignity, thanks to you. I do still get the good nerves. The ones that let you know you're alive. And Winning!!! Irish love.
Thank you for what you have taught me. The technical part is so valuable and helps get my mind off being self conscious. I am learning much greater self trust and self acceptance as an actor. I am really grateful for this huge shift in perspective. Thank you for the work you do and the humanity that you bring in teaching auditioning. It is HUGE.
We often marvel at the efficiency of your classes. Your approach has undeniably practical applications to getting work. The reminder that how you comport yourself can be seen in "preview" in the audition room has been a valuable learning experience.
Thank you for such a wonderful Cold Reading class experience. I had a great time and learned an enormous amount in a short time. I'm already using some of your tools, tips, and philosophies in auditions and I'm so grateful.
