I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy

Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to acting, I can teach you what it takes to be an actor and how to bring a character to life. Do you need to prepare for an audition? Do you want to learn about the business of acting? Script analysis? I can help. I

After my first film audition, in as many years, it was quite evident I needed an acting instructor. For months, I looked high and low to find the right one. I wanted an instructor who could challenge me, yet in a nurturing manner. An instructor who can speak confidently about the craft. Above all, an instructor you look forward to seeing every session. Jeremy Kruse is all that and then some.

Within weeks of pairing up, my acting style/delivery is far more conversational. Plus, I’m more at ease when working to find the true essence of a character to develop and make my own.

I always walk away from Jeremy’s sessions learning something new. Jeremy’s constant encouragement has propelled my confidence, as an actor, to another level.

Initially, I wasn’t really into the idea of taking acting classes via FaceTime. The idea sounded so impersonal and potentially distracting, not with Jeremy. It's as if he's working with you, face-to-face, in a studio.

In addition to acting, Jeremy has been so supportive with my first attempt in writing a screenplay. He's such a creative influence.

The secret is out, Jeremy Kruse is the "Best Instructor Ever"! Working with him makes my dreams of becoming an accomplished actor a reality. Thanks Jeremy!

Jeremy is great! He's super personable and down to earth, and he never makes you feel like you've screwed up. He gives good feedback and is very knowledgeable. He's always open to answer any questions I have, too. Really great guy!
Timothy
I love these lessons! I look forward to them every week. Jeremy is a cool down to earth guy and is easy to talk to which really helps if you're new to this kind of thing. He gives good feedback that really makes you see things from the outside in.

Getting older and noticing a change in my vocal patterns was causing me some concern. Francesca not only listened to me about my concerns but she talked me through the physicality of how my vocal chords worked and how I can best sing in a way that does no damage but gets maximum range, power and tone. I have never taken vocal lessons before so this was such amazing information to have and to put into practice. When you know better, you do better. I can't recommend BugByte Studios enough! Thanks sister!

Francesca is not only a wonderful person, but she is a great teacher! No matter what age you are, from beginner to very skilled, Francesca offers a gracious, positive approach, with strong encouragement that helps a student to feel safe. I have enjoyed every lesson that I've had with Francesca! She is extremely patient and able to offer positive instruction to correct any unhealthy habits. I am excited and honored to have an opportunity to work with such an experienced voice teacher. She is wonderful!!! I would recommend her to anyone! Keep up the great work Francesca, you are loved by many.

I teach the voice as a functional tool to be used for self expression and communication with others. If you've ever struggled with projection or vocal fatigue, developing the voice is for you. I believe the voice is best developed through singing, as it works the voice in a way no other medium can.

Whether you are preparing for a presentation, learning lines for a play, or trying to maintain vocal health for everyday speaking tasks, you have a place in my studio.

I have participated in a number of singing groups and chamber groups. I am currently in a chamber group in California where we will premiere a composers new song cycle in July and August of 2020.
I have also sung in (and am a member) in a number of opera choruses and local chapter university groups. I was also invited to lead the Birmingham Chinese Choir in Alabama and create and lead choir classes at local schools in California.
I assisted in directing and leading a number of performing arts summer and spring camps where students would learn and perform several pieces in less than a week!
To say I have been around the choral setting for most of my life is most accurate.

Music lessons are all about expression, education, and creativity.

During our vocal/choral lessons, we will explore techniques from basics to advanced. Whether you are interested in becoming a better singer or performer in classical, opera, theater, jazz, blues, pop, or rock, you have come to the right ...

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning.

Specializing in the beginner, intermediate and advanced level training. I love acting, performing, directing and teaching and have been involved with the acting world since age 6! Studied theater in high school and at NTSU, have a B.A. Speech/Communications and Spolin Improv technique with Nancy Fine of Second City.
I believe basic acting skills help you in every day life to be more poised, confident and help hone listening skills. It is a true delight for me to see the "light-bulb" go off when a student fully grasps a new concept or idea.
I customize sessions based on the individual.

Evelyn is a wonderful instructor! She is insightful with many years experience under her belt and she is passionate about acting. It’s great to have her support as I go into acting for opera at the collegiate level. I enjoy working with her and I highly recommend her!
Dale
Evelyn is one of the BEST directors I have worked for as an actor. Her level of care for actors was amazing! Throughout the process she helped guide and encourage the actors to bring out the best in themselves. She has a gift for acting and as a director she can relate to actors and understand what they are going through in a production. Thank you for Evelyn for everything!!
