Online Training


“The claims are true, PEM allows for safe, repeatable access to authentic, full emotion without the need to go into your past or really engage the conscious mind at all. It’s remarkable. I’m learning so much with each Skype session and am amazed at how Sarah has opened up a whole new approach to my work and emotion. My highest recommendation.”

— Scott Miller, Actor, Los Angeles


In light of the current global crisis, all training at PEM Studios Melbourne has switched to PEM’s online platform to ensure all actors still have access to PEM’s internationally acclaimed acting process and can continue their training and working on the actors instrument from their home. Out of consideration for many of us in financial hardship at this time, we are offering 30 minute try out sessions for $20, via booking form below.

Our PEM instructors have been coaching in the industry for 16 years and providing online training for 7 years worldwide. Actors based in Hollywood, New York, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, South Africa, Europe, Russia, China, India and Japan have reaped the benefits of our accessible online training.

PEM is taught at drama universities around the world, including the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA)

While now is an opportunity for rest and recuperation, it is also a wonderful time to continue working on our craft and art. As PEM focuses on the actors instrument, online training is equally as effective as our workshops and courses. It is suitable for all experience levels, whether you are trying PEM for the firs time or deepening your craft following prior training in PEM.

Your online training can either follow a detailed curriculum where an individualised program is created for you long term, or your coaches can work with you on a specific topic or script.

“PEM skype sessions really changed my acting and also me as a person. I learned how to trigger emotions in my body. This method is very quick and I don’t need to use my personal memories to get into emotions. Frankly, this is excellent.”

— Agata Pisiewicz, Actress, Poland
