Auditing the Master class

Auditing the Master Class represents a unique learning opportunity and provides the best possible introduction into the work, techniques and ethos of The Studio. We strongly recommend auditing the Master Class to anyone interested in undertaking study at The Studio.  

As an auditor, you will actively observe the class, experiencing the work through the Master Class ensemble and Howard’s critique. Auditors are given the opportunity to ask questions, and are provided with a list of the texts that the participants will be work-shopping, enabling them to study the source material and appreciate Howard’s approach to script analysis.  

In order to make the most of auditing the Master Class and gain a thorough understanding of Howard’s approach to technique training, we strongly encourage auditors to read Howard’s book, ‘Fine on Acting: A Vision of the Craft’ prior to the class, and to audit all four days of the Master Class.
