Billy is an Adjunct Professor at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he teaches courses in Shakespeare and Contemporary Scene Study for the Open Arts Program. For the past ten years he has assisted Vicki Hart, head of the Meisner Studio at NYU, both in class and by coaching on curricular rehearsal projects.

Billy offers coaching for film, TV & theater auditions, as well as drama school and other training program auditions.

Coaching sessions are typically one hour and your first session will be offered at a discounted rate. For more info, or to schedule a session, please email billygriffinjr@gmail.com and put the word “Coaching” in the subject line.


Billy is, at the very least, incredibly funny and endearing, and at the most, perhaps the most thoughtful and steadfast coach I may ever work with. He approached the monologue from every angle to get me out of my own head and out of my insecurities, so that by the time the audition came around, I entered the audition room free of worry — I was prepared. I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to say that Billy helped me find my power in performance again, something I felt I’d lost many years ago.
