Acting class was so much fun! I wanted to try something different to challenge myself & my friends recommended I try an acting class because I’m so “extra” as they put it. Well I finally got up the nerve to try a class & J was so helpful & worked with me to feel comfortable. He never made me feel like I couldn’t do it, plus it was so fun that I can’t wait to try another class. If you are a beginner like myself than he is the perfect instructor for you.
Tim Jones
I thoroughly enjoyed my class with J. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little apprehensive at first but by the time I finished the session I was at ease. He broke things down to where I could understand being a novice, and made me feel like I belonged! I highly recommend J to anyone who wants to really learn about the true art of Acting!!

Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

My experience with Shelley was amazing!

I took weekly lessons with her for a few months and it was a great investment of time and money. I progressed from not being able to carry a tune at all to comfortably and confidently singing a variety of music.

She tailored every lesson to me so the lessons progressed as I did, which meant that my vocal skills and capabilities were continually growing.

Shelley's lessons were well structured and professional. They carried me through effective warmup exercises into singing that helped me continue to expand my range, delivery, and tone. I learned effective breathing techniques and proper shaping to get the clarity and tone that I wanted. I still implement her training on a daily basis and am now comfortable performing and recording a variety of musical styles and genres.

Her feedback and guidance was clear and easy to understand. Whenever there was concept I didn't understand, she knew how to explain it in a way that made it clear or use visual aids and basic tools to clarify.

Shelley helped me achieve a level of vocal control and confidence I didn't think would be possible for me.

Shelley is an outstanding teacher and I will take more lessons from her in the future!

This class is for teen-adult beginning/intermediate acting. I pioneered 2 private Arts Academies in drama and film for 6 years, and am now teaching acting and directing full time with private lessons and gigs. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Soundwaves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

"I was one of Jeremy's acting students at Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute last year, and i can say honestly he was and still remains my favorite acting teachers i have ever had. He is so incredibly talented himself and passionate about acting and it makes the student even more passionate. He took time to personally help each student and didn't just address us as a whole. His class is fun and very very helpful! He also teaches you about some of the business and tips for auditioning, its not just acting, he is amazing and i miss his class always:)!He also took headshots for my class which I've gotten parts with!:) Everyone take his class!"

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting

Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un …
