I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

April has such precision, kindness and astute ears. Thank you so much for helping me go back to basics, slow myself down and be consistent in my practice!

I studied with April S. for a year; I see my “great” improvements; breathing, holding notes, and discovering that I wasn’t tone deaf. I loved every second of every minute I spent learning to sing with April S. I plan to take more lessons in the future. It was my joy studying with April S.; it was a life long dream of mine to learn how to sing properly. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m so confident that with more lessons I will achieve everything I want with April S. as my vocal instructor.

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am ...

I used to have a massive struggle with acting. I started from square one. I was determined to become the best actor I possibly could. When my acting skills finally got to a high enough level, it took me to Musical Theatre, Theatre, Opera and occasionally Film. I have also directed Theatre here and there. I am versatile and knowledgeable and currently performing as an Opera singer. I am excited to work with new students!

Hi, my name is Kade Bennett. I am Musical Theatre actor as well as an Opera singer and straight actor. Acting has always been a part of my life and it is the #1 most important thing in performance. I love performing and working with students one on one!
