the coaches

Hi! We're Isabel Lehoux and Jock MacDonald,
Straeon's co-founders, and acting coaches.
We coach hundreds of actors from all over the world every year, and we give each one of them personalized training. We also act, write, and direct. We believe we have no business telling you what to do if we can't do it ourselves! This approach keeps Straeon evolving. Storytelling changes with time, and so should acting classes. Watch our video to learn more about our process, or have fun exploring our site; we have tons of free lessons and tips for you!
