I am ready to meet with actors of all ages and experience levels. This business is fast moving and can be vague at times leaving you wondering what could you have done differently if you didn't book the job. I want you to succeed, but first you need the proper tools to get to that next level of your career. From my experience of working in LA and Chicago as well as drawing from previous instructors, you will learn more than just basic acting exercises. Gain an upper hand on your contemporaries!

Very knowledgable teacher! Christian is patient with me as a beginner and has a great teaching method whereby he never tells you exactly how to perform a piece, as that is not what acting is about.

"UNLEASH THE POWER OF YOUR CHILD'S ACTING VOICE"! As an aspiring actor, you want your child to look...and SOUND like a STAR! That means improving their speech, voice projection, resonance, pitch, tone, and overall presentation techniques. All are covered extensively in my personal voice makeover lessons.

When your child speaks, are you unhappy with the sound of their voice? Is it washed out, nasal, weak, muddy, and generally in need of help? Do they drop consonants, mumble, speak too quickly or not properly open their jaw to make proper sounds? Do they fear performing/auditioning in public? What is their body language? Do they display a confident, friendly, happy presence on camera that will translate into successful bookings? My proven, live, teaching techniques will train your child's voice to sound richer, fuller, and more audience-friendly in just a few lessons. I will give them the confidence to overcome their stage fright fears. We will also work hard to improve ...

Just had my first lesson and Bill and he quickly determined issues in my speaking voice.

We discussed many tips (some of them very easy to implement but useful), and in future lessons will focus further on improvements.

I'm very glad for this, because I'd imagine there are a hundred ways to use your voice improperly, so having someone with Bill's experience hear your voice and offer recommendations is immensely valuable.

I have been taking weekly voice acting lessons from Bill for almost two months now. I feel he does a great job of helping me find and focus my strengths while equally addressing and overcoming my weaknesses. Every lesson is well-paced and packed from start to finish with valuable training and advice, and on top of that Bill is just fun to train with, I am looking forward to the lessons yet to come. Highly recommend.

Breeana is an excellent and talented teacher of Spanish. She is very patient,
creative and professional. She is genuinely excited about teaching. and makes
learning Spanish fun. she uses very creative methods to make the learning process both stimulating and interesting. As a student, I really look forward to
my lessons with her. I had Spanish in high school and found it to be
boring and hard to grasp. Now, however, I can't wait for my next lesson with her.
Thanks Breeana ,

"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 have trained alongside Jennifer as a dancer and have seen her in action in the studio not only as the student but as the teacher. Her compassion, diligence, and dedication to sharing her own love of ballet with her students is admirable and shines through. She is dedicated to not only providing safe and polished technique and artistry but also to learning from her students and seeking out ways to improve herself.

Speaking as a peer, Jennifer's teaching style is a great hybrid between a technique-driven, traditional curriculum and a wholesome appreciation for the joy and spirit that keeps dance as a universal language. Students not only gain an understanding of the vocabulary but a safe space to develop discipline, strength and confidence."

We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family.
