Howard Fine, the former director of American Musical and Dramatic Academy's acting department, has been teaching in Los Angeles for over 30 years.The studio offers several foundation courses for actors of all experience levels, a full scene study program taught by Howard Fine and Laura Gardner, a complete vocal program taught by its founder David Coury, as well as classes in Alexander Technique, personalization, comedy improv, and solo performance. The focus of the studio is on the actual craft of acting, rather than marketing. Actors at the studio demonstrate a high level of work ethic, a determination to master the craft, and willingness to work together as colleagues rather than competitors.
