Jameson J.

Austin, TX

Use the Alexander Technique to heighten your skills. Learn how to re-act, rather than just act.

About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice.

My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tai
lor lessons towards each student's unique needs.

I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and early to contemporary classical music.

* Breath control
* Healthy vocal production "bel canto"
* Fach transition
* 20th Century music

Roles performed:

Rodolfo, La Boheme
Canio, Pagliacci
Count Almaviva, Barbiere di Siviglia
Goro, Madama Butterfly
Mr Splinters, The Tender Land
Don Basilio, Marriage of Figaro
Juror #3, Resurrection (Machover)
The Cowboy, The Blue Hotel (Hulse)

Credits include:

* Aspen Opera Theater Center

* Boston Lyric Opera

* Rome Opera Festival

* Austin Lyric Opera

* Amato Opera

* Dicapo Opera

* Bronx Opera

I have made demonstration tapes for new works (musical theater and opera) and know how to work a new piece into any voice.

In addition, I have worked with the Alexander Technique for over 15 years and integrate its principles into my lessons. My approach is creative, energetic and disciplined.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and every lesson will be different depending on the needs of the individual, and the demands of the day. I use the principles of the Alexander Technique to open up the student's mind and body to new experiences.

In general, lessons will start with a simple warm-up. Then scales and arpeggios to develop agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. Finally, the last part of the lesson I incorporate some of the new ideas that were communicated earlier into the student's repertoire.

Jameson is an exceptional singer and teacher. He is kind and patient in lessons and wants to make sure you understand what he is teaching. Not only does he go over the notes and rhythms of a song, he also goes over the meaning and emotions of the piece to help you understand and perform the piece.

Jameson has been patient with me in the few lessons I've had with him so far.
He's very knowledgeable and understanding, so I felt no need to be ashamed when I make mistakes or sometimes sound funny. It helps that he's friendly and approachable.

The lessons are purposeful and insightful. I like how he allows me to ask questions and he helps me understand mechanics that I've never learned before.

I've sung in a few church choirs for many years on and off without any vocal training. I've only ever sung for just the love of singing, so I've collected some bad habits that were never addressed until now. It didn't take long for him to develop a gameplan for me and figure out how he's gonna get me right on track.

Today he helped me "find my voice". It was a Eureka moment of sorts I won't soon forget. There's still work to be done, but surely I will
continue with my lessons with him because I'd like to see where he can help me take my voice.

Definitely top-notch instruction from a pro here, so for me, it's money well-spent.

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.

Georgia L.

Austin, TX

About Georgia

I have seven years of Latin and English experience, between a Classics degree from the top university in Texas and a burgeoning career as a high school teacher. Classics is an intensive program based around language, history, art, archaeology, and a LOT of research and writing. My greatest strength is in Latin; my strongest interests are history, literature, and archaeology. I have also studied ancient Greek, Japanese, and German, and spent most of my time in school doing careful and precise translations and research papers, along with some freelance editing, so I have a very precise grasp of
grammar and structure.

I spend time tailoring my classes to my students' strengths and interests. I believe in making learning fun, because enjoyment encourages a student to work more than anything, and I also believe in explaining concepts so that students understand WHY things are the way they are, instead of just memorizing inexplicable facts and rules. My Classics degree allows me to speak with authority on the historical and cultural backgrounds to tie subjects together, and I enjoy creating and playing games to drill information.

High school students have liked me as a teacher because I am not far removed from their generation, so I can discuss the games and shows they enjoy and connect it back to our subject matter. Younger students enjoy my cheerful personality, and older students respect my intelligence and breadth of knowledge. Besides this, I honestly love the subject matter, and that passion can reach the students and help them to love it as well.

Rebecca W.

Austin, TX

I've been teaching acting for 5 years. As a teaching artist I want my students to know how to take care of their voice and bodies. I also want my student to be comfortable with themselves and making mistakes.
I believe it is imperative to understand how to analyze a script and to build meaningful characters.

About Rebecca

My name is Rebecca. I'm a senior directing student at the University of Texas at Austin. While there I have been a part of over thirty productions. I've been acting since I was 5 years old and haven't stopped since. I've participated in several films over the years. I specialize in theatrical acting but also have a firm ability to teach film acting.
I believe theatre is important because it's a reflection of our society and helps build culture. It is a way to express ourselves and serve the community.
