Amanda Brooke Lerner: Thank you Thank you Thank you for the amazing coaching session today!

I was given sides for a co-star role for one of my favorite shows late last night and we did a one-hour FaceTime coaching session.  I left feeling empowered with specific choices, a sense of play, owning my sass, not to mention a rather bizarre tongue technique that totally helped in getting out a very mouthy line!

I went in excited but grounded and had a blast in the room. Guys if you need a coaching session, get thee to Amanda!

- Jo-Ann Lee

I wanted to reach out to you and thank you for your wonderful coaching and advice. My recent film shoot went extremely well.

I came to set feeling very prepared and confident. And the tears that were needed for certain scenes came effortlessly.

 The director was beyond thrilled with the performance! I can’t wait to share the film with you when it’s completed.

Thank you again and I look forward to working with you again!

I headed to a beautiful woman’s apartment, Amanda Brooke Lerner, to help coach me for an audition the following night for a seminar with AGR and a self tape as a 1940’s mom with a Bronx accent for a film. She brought me out to new levels I never thought possible.

Her coaching left me with such confidence! I wish I had her the night before for my network audition.

She also give me a technique for learning lines that really worked and I would pay a million bucks for. Amanda Brooke Lerner Rocks!

Amanda Brooke Lerner keeps rocking my world as a mentor and audition coach.

A super quick note to thank Amanda Brooke Lerner !! 

First of all, she's an amazing cheerleader... And boy do we need that in this industry. Second, she does a wonderful job with resumes. She resurrected mine in no time and recently updated it with lightning speed!

Third, she is super nice coach... I shot her a text and boom ready she was to help me prepare a script... And last, I went to her for a self-tape, that same week... And loved the result.

She was there from beginning to end, shared bits and pieces of her knowledge of the industry and process.... That was extremely interesting on many levels.


Had a tremendous coaching session this morning for an upcoming theatre callback with badass coach extraordinaire Amanda Brooke Lerner of Actor And The Biz.

Get yourself to her stat.

She’s insightful, sharp as a tack and a hell of a lot of fun to be around.

I feel ready to BOOK THAT ROOM.

-- Carol Todd

Thank you, Amanda - for coaching me on my scene, for being so gifted and kind and generous-hearted! ABL - you're a gift.  

Also, I LOVE how spanky Amanda made my resume! I always thought mine was just fine - and really didn't need tweaking. I was wrong - because Amanda Brooke Lerner made it shine!

I’m officially hooked on Amanda Brooke Lerner!!!

Just had my first ever audition coaching with her.

My sides were 3 lines total and we worked in so much detail!

I feel like I will be on a totally different level when I walk in the room tomorrow.

Thank you Amanda!

Had a great coaching session with Amanda Brooke Lerner today for a major Feature Film audition. She kicked my ass and it was amazing!

After working with you and letting my brain soak in the info, I did my lines again this morning and the accent came out with much ease

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

Amanda Brooke Lerner is an amazing coach. Kind and patient: she somehow pulls the best work out of me.

She inspires, nurtures and encourages me as an actor. She pushes me when I need it and has improved my work tremendously! 

I am now more confident when I walk in and out of the audition room and she's helped increase by bookings and callbacks exponentially!

I sincerely recommend Amanda as a coach. She is the real deal!! 

-- Kathleen Boddington

Amanda Brooke Lerner is my go to for acting coaching, business coaching, resume and slate shots.

Her acting coaching is on another level! She was in tears rehearsing me because she was so present and committed. When I finish coaching with Amanda I feel sooooo ready for my performance and any redirects that get thrown at me.

The skills and tricks I've learned in our business coaching have launched my career to the next level. Beyond that Amanda is an amazing friend, actress and woman.
