I am very happy that I chose her.

Throughout each lesson, I learned something new about myself. She was very patient, informative, and always had good things to say about you and your acting/voice skills. She helped awaken my creative theatre mind again and I’m thankful for that. I highly recommend taking her if you want a good experience in learning or enhancing your acting/voice skills!

Just had my first lesson with him, and he was amazing! He's relatable and puts things through a perspective that you wouldn't have ever thought of. 10/10 recommend him, and if I could give more than five stars I would. And I plan on doing lessons with him all throughout high school.

Brian is one of the teachers that sticks with you for the rest of your life. He cares about his students and is an excellent teacher. He started me on a journey that had me playing euphonium for years after he moved.

Hello! My name is Carly, and I think I'd be an amazing acting coach for you. Professionally, my main focus is Acting; therefore, I've been trained quite a bit. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Theatre with a focus in Acting. I've performed in dramas, sketch comedies, stand-up, improvisation, and in quite a variety of different film projects. I also work as a Director. I've trained at Yale University for Directing, and I've directed for film and stage projects, spoken-word projects, drama, and comedy shows. I think that my experience in directing and acting will make me a great acting coach for you! I know how to view a performance objectively and then my acting experience allows me to know what you could work on and what you're excelling in!
In my professional life, I focus on new works. So, my whole philosophy is creating something new and exciting, so I won't try and fit you into a mold of whatever a "good actor" is, but I'll focus on helping you be the best version of yourself ...

About Carly

"Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence."

This is my 6th class with Donnabella and I truly feel more confident after each class. I cannot wait until next week to see what new techniques and enhancements I can add to my portfolio."

"My daughter took 10 acting sessions with Jennie - the first one was in person and the rest were over skype which worked perfectly! Jennie started each session with warm-up activities to 1) break the ice and 2) to learn how to deal with nervousness (breathing/relaxing techniques). Each session consisted of singing and practicing a monologue. Jennie suggested a book on monologues and my daughter chose one she liked. Each session they worked on expressing the emotion that was being expressed in the dialog. They broke down the feelings being portrayed and practiced different ways to express the emotions. Jennie was SO supportive of my daughter. Her lessons are going to be VERY helpful to my daughter when she goes to try out for the spring musical next year. We are planning to sign up for more lessons prior to auditions as a refresher! I highly recommend her."
