Publisher's Summary

"Do you have any notes for me?" Actors always ask for notes on their performance, and they will take them from just about anyone. Ron Marasco's Notes to an Actor grew out of the actor's profession. In his years as an actor, scholar, and teacher of acting, Mr. Marasco found that most acting books were either outdated classics that were rarely read, or quasi-textbooks that actors only "skimmed." So he developed Notes to an Actor, a compact, user-friendly audiobook geared specifically to the way actors work. The book is based on the innovative idea that notes, given one on one, are the essential tool of creative learning.

Insightful!

Very insightful and entertaining. I loved it. :)

I downloaded this to aid with character animation and even for that purpose there were some great things I learned.

Great Listen!!

If you could sum up Notes to an Actor in three words, what would they be?

Fresh, Inspiring and Memorable

Any additional comments?

I read and listen to a lot of books and this one is now on the top of my list. As an actor it was refreshing to hear new information regarding the craft of acting and how to approach different situations or genres that I had never heard or learned before. Mr Marasco seems approachable , practical and takes some of the worry and acting fears out of the art form with his words. I plan to buy the book after listening to this audible one so that I can refer to it again and again.

A mentor for actors

This is by far the most helpful acting book I have ever read or listened to. In fact, I own both the hardback version and the audio version. It is that good! It is a helpful resource to refer her back to often. And Ron Marasco narration gives a mentor-like quality and honesty to the wisdom in the book.

The best book on acting - bar none!

I'm so glad I bought this audio book - it has been invaluable to me as an actor. Ron Marasco is an excellent teacher and I am so glad that he narrated this book instead on another voiceover artist because I feel some of his lessons would have been lost in translation had he not. Buy this book , learn from it, listen to it more than once, follow his advice- you will be doing yourself a favor.
