My goal is to share my knowledge as a classically trained actor and film director. I will create lesson plans catered to each individual that captures the complex and wonderful world of theatrical and on-camera performance. Students will be exposed to various acting methods created by Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, Michael Chekhov, and others. Students will participate in multiple exercises and performances that will build and strengthen their bodies, voice, mind, and heart.

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

I have always had a whimsical imagination along with a tendency to "think funny". As a younger man I have experimented with stand up comedy. The writing process I really enjoyed. The performance part always felt dreadful. The main problem, I think, was my proclivity towards over analyzing. I was comfortable "up in my head" and usually avoided living "in the moment". For me "flowing" was a private matter, not social.

My ultimate "dream come true" would be to have the opportunity to be part of a comedic writer's group. Imagine being part of Sid Caesar's writing sessions with Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner et al! How I would have loved to be part of that community!

Now I live in an "active retirement community". None of those comedy dreams have come to pass.

One night (after watching a marathon portion of The Kaminsky Method on Netflix) I felt ready to explore my own creative potential for the theater community. I found "Take Lessons" online, and saw that Jeremy had devoted years accumulating both academic and practical experience in the world of performing arts.

My own private hope was that if I could somehow connect the art with the craft, and thereby discover ways to both overcome what blocked me and at the same time have fun, then I might open the possibility of unlocking a medium of expression for my own imagination, and thereby find some means of participating with other kindred spirits in theatrical projects.


Jeremy agreed to meet me where I was at. He was willing to custom tailor his lessons to my own idiosyncratic needs. We agreed to one class a week with a ten week commitment. After every one hour class I have a whole week to process what we have opened up in the previous session.


After my third lesson I find that Jeremy's flexibility and personal attention has provided me with the freedom to participate in structuring my own advanced learning experience. I have already, with just two private lessons, produced two short scripts by transcribing our recorded online improvisations. I don't know yet how others will respond to these skits. I think they are both funny.

Perhaps one of the amateur theater groups here in the retirement community will be interested in producing my skits as a montage. Then I can observe how my words come across to an audience. Believe me when I say I appreciate how rare and valuable such an experience is. As any mature artist will tell you, our culture is sorely lacking in places to try things out, especially when your creations are likely to bomb.

Honestly, I don't know anywhere else I could have found such a unique opportunity. Jeremy is knowledgeable, understanding and supportive. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any kind of performing art.

Jeremy does a great job with our 11yo son, who was furious when he found out I’d booked him acting lessons to help him with a drama he is currently involved in. Today he was smiling and grinning and trying out different voices for fun! Thank you, Jeremy!

Our company Alignment Healthcare has been taking advantage of Take Lesson's dance classes for several months now, instructed virtually by Jordan Wentz. We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time.

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

I've acted on shows like "Bloodline," "Mr. Robot," "Hostages," "Mysteries of Laura," Law & Order: SVU," "Party of Five," "Blue Bloods," "The Following" and more - as well as in films like "The Bourne Identity" and in videogames like "Madden 2020." Additionally, I have acted Off-Broadway at New World Stages and in regional productions.

My coaching clients have booked recurring roles, guest stars and co-stars, and I have worked with actors and casting directors as a reader for all of the major networks.

"Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed."

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
