J's assisted me with my public speaking tremendously. I am not an actor at all but I struggle with speaking on camera and in front of people and J used strategies from stage performance principles and applied them. I went from stuttering and stumbling over words to speaking with clarity and confidence. I look forward to continuously work with him.

Michelle is great! I have been hesitant about doing online lessons, but she makes them feel natural. I can hear and feel the difference in my voice after only a few meetings, and I always look forward to the next.

Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

It's been a great experience to have lessons online. Although it lasted 45 minutes, I have seen that these types of lessons are very useful and practical. Thank you for providing these lessons!

The acting methods I use are geared towards acting for singing. In these lessons we will coach through a piece of music by exploring the character or poet's intentions.

I worked with Jessica for roughly two years. During that time we worked on different vocal techniques and explored many different music styles such as classical and Broadway. Jessica helped me find confidence in myself and my voice. Because of my work with Jessica, I auditioned for and earned a spot in an audition-only choir, something I never could have done without everything I learned from Jessica.

In addition to singing techniques, I learned important things about the voice and how to keep it healthy.

Jessica is an exceptional voice teacher and I learned so much from her.
Cheryl
My 12 year old daughter was thrilled to resume voice lessons with Miss Jessica using Zoom. My daughter started with Jessica at the age of 10. Jessica is a gifted singer and teacher. Singing is one of my autistic daughter’s strengths and I feel so fortunate to have Jessica helping her develop her vocal talents. I highly recommend Jessica.
Erin
Jessica is awesome! I've been taking lessons with her for a few months now. She's super nice, and is great at teaching how to improve all aspects of my singing. Highly recommend taking lessons from her!

"Jason was a great instructor. It was my 12 year old daughter's first exploration into acting. Jason was clear and concise with instruction and spent quite a bit of time outside the 1 hour home instruction class to find suitable monologues. If acting is something my daughter wants to explore further, we will definitely be going back to Jason."

"I came to Jennie with basically 0 acting experience and wow am I glad I went to Jennie. She is the most kind, compassionate and supportive instructor out there. Her knowledge was vast and whether you want to get into film, Tv, theater or just wanna get out of your shell, Jennie is the instructor for you.

She helped me every step of the way to hone my craft, work on monologues, mock audition and so much more. Jennie’s way of teaching makes you think differently and she truly brings out the best side of you. Plus Jennie is so supportive going at my speed giving constructive feed back and making me feel great about my progress.

Lastly, Jennie was understanding of my time and worked around my schedule as well as the “homework” or “things to work on” she gave. Jennie was flexible and the Zoom calls worked incredibly well during this pandemic. Every day I would get off of our call with a smile on my face feeling accomplished!

Overall I would say Jennie was helpful, knowledgeable and a great instructor. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to start acting and have no idea where to begin."
