About Aria

(With regards to the ages taught, it is more a matter of experience so much as chronological age.) I'm glad you've decided to take voice lessons. It's a decision impossible to regret. You find your Self and learn to sing fully at the same time! And a whole lot more. When I'm not voice teachi

I love working with Aria! She is an excellent teacher. She worked with me on classical repertoire in Italian, German, French and English. Sbe helped me prepare for performances, scholarship competitions, program auditions, and my college auditions. She is knowledgable, patient, understanding and always willing to find time to help. She's great!
Jamie
Dr Thome is an excellent teacher. She not only loves music, but understands it. She is quite talented at sharing that knowledge with her students, helping them to grow musically. She is great with scheduling--accommodating extra lessons as necessary and able. Her work with my daughter is stellar. Aria helped her prepare for multiple auditions, performances and her conservatory auditions. I highly recommend her.
Angela
Aria is a joy, a light, and an overall wonderful human being. She is knowledgeable and makes singing a wonderful experience. She helped me prepare for my St. Louis Muny audition and I could tell that my technique and overall confidence improved. I was very pleased with my audition (that’s big for someone who is very self-critical). I also had the pleasure of learning various choral arrangements and catholic hymns and performed them with Aria as my accompanist for weddings. It was a wonderful experience.

I am a professional ballet dancer, with over 20 years in training across the world. I trained at Canadas National Ballet School, then worked professionally as a ballerina at Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam and Alberta Ballet in Calgary.

I hold a Masters Degree from New York University in Dance Education with a concentration in American Ballet Theatre pedagogy. I work at American Ballet Theatre as a teaching artist and as an Exam Proctor.

My classes are catered to the level and the needs of my students, they include stretching, conditioning and of course ballet technique. You have the option to have a solo created on you, in which I choreograph a unique piece for the dancer and rehearse it during the lesson to help with artistry and performance. We also can work on ballet variations as I coach a lot of my students in preparation for competitions.

While I train professionals, my students range in age from 5 years old to 18 years old, and am able to cater my classes to ...

"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."

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
