Grand Salon meets 4x a month on Fridays from 10am-12pm PST in a virtual zoom meeting. 

Lead by Brian Norris, the first part of each session includes a new weekly industry topic to delve into. Next, participants are lead in an interactive exercise designed to help you learn key networking skills. Finally, Brian opens up the floor to a Q&A session so that you can ask him the questions that you need the answers for to move forward in your career.

Not sure what questions to ask? Often we learn more from observing. Listening to what others are working on will give you inspiration for implementing new strategies in your own career!  


How it works: 

  • every session lasts 2 hours (Fridays 10am PST/1pm EST, every week, 4x a month)

  • held virtually so that you can join no matter where you are. 

  • weekly topics on actor essentials, need to know industry happenings, and Hollywood's current trends

  • $50 for the month,  with no commitment/no contract

Membership features:

  • weekly, life and career coaching in a large group setting 

  • private facebook group with your fellow Grand Salon members to ask questions and get support from your new community

  • Ability to ask your coach your pressing industry questions 

  • No contracts, no commitment length - you pay by the month so you can join when you can and leave when you book work. ​ 



Brian is inviting, inspiring, and knows his shit! No wonder he is a working actor. I am constantly learning “secrets” from him.  Every time I’m in his class, I walk away with a new “tool.” Brian really shows us how to approach material and he brings something as a teacher that not all teachers have. 



Brian is one of the best communicators in the world of acting coaches. More so than any other acting coach I’ve met, he has an uncanny ability to discern your preferred language/method for understanding information, and then give you very specific and individualized notes that emphasize exactly where YOU need help the most.



Brian is one of the most articulate and practical teachers that I’ve ever worked with. He’s able to hone in on exactly what work needs to be done and then communicate it to his students in a positive and engaging manner. He clears up a lot of the mystery behind script analysis and acting for the camera, without demanding that we sacrifice our creative spirit.

If your career is stalled, you suffer from scatter, or overwhelm - or you're looking to enhance your bookings and thrive with reps that raise you up - then this class was designed for you. 


 June Dates are the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th 

You don't have to go it alone. Let us help you navigate the business side fo your career, saving you valuable time and energy that you can spend doing what you love. 



The one on one attention is great because it really let Brian hone in on the things that I was struggling with personally, and find ways to make them “make sense” for me.
