If you talk the talk, you better walk that walk! I am a veteran film and television actor and producer whose credits include over 50 television shows and two Academy award-winning films. I have experience in all levels of filmmaking. I have taken a feature film from concept to sale. I co-wrote, produced, edited, and post-produced the movie, and then found representation with a major sales agent, and finally achieved both foreign and domestic distribution. I will help any filmmakers realize their vision, as I have done it myself from start to finish!

In my vocal, audition, and performance coaching sessions, I focus on more specific topics. I can help you prepare for a specific performance or audition, including finding and labeling sheet
music, picking appropriate pieces and cuts, and working on your performance of selected pieces. I like to focus on physical communication and stage presence as these are essential tools in your arsenal for any type of performance. I will teach you how and what to research for character and story integrity in each performance, so that you can best connect with your audience.
Coaching sessions are booked as single sessions.

Adam has helped my son find his voice after only working with him for a short time. He gave him valuable tips, exercises, and even recorded the lesson so that my son can go back and refer to what he was taught. Can’t wait for him to continue working with him.

This was my first lesson with Adam and everything went well. Adam made feel at ease and his singing advice was very informative and productive. An excellent teacher.

With Voice Acting lessons you'll learn techniques to keep your voice healthy and strong while doing vocal gymnastics in the recording studio. Learn methods of supporting your voice through proper breathing and diction, finding the proper placement for certain sounds, and creating a rubric for discovering the best way to achieve a specific vocal production without sacrificing health, quality, volume, or expression.

"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."
