zara-coaching

How can we apply what we’ve learned and overcome our difficulties when launching a new project?

Andrés Zará and Audrey Pernell offer coaching, in Spanish and English, for diverse projects: concerts, theatre pieces, studio recordings, academic performances, artistic theses, public speaking, preparation for lectures and demonstrations, etc.

What is coaching?

At the start of a project, it is essential to set concrete objectives, create a realistic work plan, and count on those who can help us to channel our inner best as artists and professionals. That’s coaching in a nutshell, an interactive process in which coach and client search for the most effective way to reach creative and professional goals. We work with a wide variety of people, including:

Actors | Singers | Musicians | Dancers | Teachers | Executives
