Not everyone wants to learn how to sing, speaking and voice projection are valuable tools for actors, television personalities, lecturers, and professors. Speaking is a lot like singing and I use some of the same exercises to help teach proper support to avoid vocal damage and tiring the voice.

I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle sch

Becoming an professional actor is a progressive process. Let's journey together.

Using a variety of Stanislavski-based methods I work with actors of all levels to promote emotional freedom, clarity, and artistry. My work is based on the three major American proponents of Stanislavski's work; Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and Lee Strasberg.

I also work using methods I've learned from my time at Shakespeare & Company that connect the actor's personal narrative to classic text.

Would you like to discover a stronger, clearer, more expressive speaking voice and build your professional communication skills? It's a rapidly changing world out there and many of us are working from home. We're Zooming, Teams-ing, and sometimes wondering how we can truly make a strong connection with one another. The challenge is to embrace this new world, one where we rely on a webcam and a microphone for meaningful communication. If you want to use this time to work on your speaking voice, I can help. We'll create an individualized plan based on your goals and needs. Improving your voice helps you build confidence and beat stress. You can speak with greater resonance, volume, clarity, pronunciation, stamina, and/or technique. In addition to public speaking skills, we work on breathing, movement, and posture as essential companions to a rich vocal life and a warm online presence.

Jennifer has identified several ways that I use my voice inefficiently (my description - she is much kinder in her choice of words). My homework is concrete and substantive enough so that I can experience a different way of speaking. One example is what to do with my tongue when I say specific words. I think this could make a real difference for me.

I enjoyed my conversation with Jennifer. She taught me some useful exercises that help to cope with my stress. Look forward to the next lessons with Jennifer. Thank you!
