I teach all kinds of acting, and have for over 40 years, but I specialize in stage acting, on-camera acting, acting for the face, voice acting, comedic acting, physical acting, improv, script analysis, monologues, audition prep, audition videos and voice over auditions.

For Voice Acting, we'll cover the various elements including: pitch; loudness; speed; rhythm; tone; prosody; variables and variations; character elements; use of dramatic and comedic pauses; emotion; enunciation; emphasis; pace; intervals; nasal continuents; u-glide; musicality; timing, and more.

We'll study mic technique, what to do and what to avoid. We'll study how to prepare your script, including identifying and using key words, and script shorthand. We'll explore what to expect in the studio, how to work with a producer, how to work with a sound engineer, and how to work with other voice actors.

We'll apply the elements of Voice Acting to the study of voice artistry, video game voiceovers, commercial ...

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

Mr. Andrew is kind, funny and engaging.

My son (6) always has the best time at lesson and wants to know immediately when he gets to go back.

Our son has a lot on his plate and watching him have something that's just his that he is happy to do and enjoys this has been such a bright spot for our whole family.

- and Mr. Andrew is in direct correlation to that.

I recommend Mr. Andrew to anyone who is looking for a teacher who is kind, funny, engaging, and wants to help you succeed and gives you opportunities to use the skills you have learned.

He went far beyond my expectations and it pains me to have to end classes(unforeseen circumstances) although I have a feeling this is not the last time I will take class with him. He is a Fantastic teacher but also a friend and I believe his method of teaching will greatly improve anyone that is seeking to improve their skills. Thank you so much David, until next time."

A long-time actor, I have had the pleasure of working with Bren on a variety of projects. Not only is she both an enthusiastic leader and team player, watching her with students, Bren has proven to be a knowledgeble and capable teacher, encouraging students, and bringing out more vocally than most expected of themselves. Bren herself is an experienced singer and v/o artist, well-qualified to help others develop vocally."

"J is awesome. The class is tailored to the student to help with what student wants to learn. What you get out the class is based on the effort you put in. I started the classes not knowing anything and just wanted to see what I could do if anything and now I am confidently going to each session looking forward to seeing how far I can take it.

Because the class is designed for the individual student, I got to work with a monologue from a video game and learn how to break down the monologue, create character for the monologue (which was a challenge and a half to distant myself from the actual character) and learn to believe that my created character is real and how I can show that with my acting. In doing I decided to use an accent, and J gave me resources and tips to find that voice.

Speaking on my experience, if you are beginning like me this is the perfect man for the job. As long as you put in the work, he will help you, guide you and push you to challenge yourself when it is needed!"

She was able to immediately give me some ideas to think on and pointed out some diction issues for me to focus on fixing.
