Peter Miner (May 3, 1930 – March 26, 2020) was a beloved master teacher at T. Schreiber Studio for over 30 years specializing in on-camera technique. His passion and calling was teaching and mentoring actors and directors throughout his career—many of whom have achieved great success. Peter’s talent, wisdom, and caring nature will be missed by family, friends, students, and colleagues alike.
To continue his legacy T. Schreiber Studio is honored to establish
The Peter Miner Memorial Scholarship Fund
to enable actors to receive the training needed for a career in theatre, film, and television.
As actors confront these challenging times, we hope you will consider a tax-deductible donation in his honor.
“Peter Miner was my first acting teacher ever. I was 14 years old when I started his class at T. Schreiber Studio. So many of the things I learned from his class I kept with me. He was a talented director, an amazing teacher, husband, father, and kind man.” – Julia Garner
“I’m forever grateful for his wisdom, advice, and friendship, and he’ll always be one of those teachers I want to make proud.” – Eliud Kauffman
” I will carry the lessons that I’ve learned from him with me for the rest of my life.” – Megan Quinn
“Peter Miner…my first acting teacher at age 14, mentor of the last 15 years, and the father-figure in my life who always took care to call and check in. The voice of reason when I signed up for my first trapeze class the night before a callback I would eventually book. The man who got me through college auditions, my first Broadway audition and proudly stood beside me on stage at my first Broadway show. I will forever miss your gentle guidance. But to be truthful, I still hear you speaking to me in my head and it is such a comfort.” – Allison Strong
