I joined a small group session with Johanna a few times and it was one of the most positive singing experiences of my life. Johanna is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. As a novice singer, it was really awesome for me to learn more about how to use my breath and body as a tool to free my voice. Johanna is truly embodied in her work and her enthusiasm and passion are contagious. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, I can't recommend Johanna more highly.

They learn how to practice, confidence on stage, confidence in themselves and out-ward ability to stay focused on the task.

Get ready to book work because after you train with me you'll understand how to break down a scene, develop a character, make interesting and truthful choices, engage your emotional instrument, and truly be Captivating to watch on the big screen. I will prep you for auditions, teach you different camera techniques (close us vs 3/4 shot, vs master shot), and so much more.

Acting is all about experiencing what life has to offer. With decades of experience acting in professional and informal roles, I have so much experience to draw upon to help you find what works for you and your dreams of acting. Each of us has different talents, strengths and weaknesses, and all of our qualities can be utilized to explore the multifaceted art of acting. I can help you see and better understand what you bring to the table so that we can hone your skills, focus your attention and intention, and even figure out how to turn any weaknesses into powerful crafting tools.

My background in Psychology gives me excellent insight into the rich playground of character development and the ability to help you find the characters within you, even the ones you never would have imagined you could be. I have the gift for making the path of learning to act a seriously playful journey that can help you reach your goal, whether they are to entertain, inform, enrich, or just

Would you like to discover a stronger, clearer, more expressive speaking voice and build your professional communication skills? It's a rapidly changing world out there and many of us are working from home. We're Zooming, Teams-ing, and sometimes wondering how we can truly make a strong connection with one another. The challenge is to embrace this new world, one where we rely on a webcam and a microphone for meaningful communication. If you want to use this time to work on your speaking voice, I can help. We'll create an individualized plan based on your goals and needs. Improving your voice helps you build confidence and beat stress. You can speak with greater resonance, volume, clarity, pronunciation, stamina, and/or technique. In addition to public speaking skills, we work on breathing, movement, and posture as essential companions to a rich vocal life and a warm online presence.

Jennifer is a rare, and exceptional teacher. She is knowledgeable, insightful, caring, generous and so much fun. It is a such a gift to work with her.
Margaret M K.
Jennifer has identified several ways that I use my voice inefficiently (my description - she is much kinder in her choice of words). My homework is concrete and substantive enough so that I can experience a different way of speaking. One example is what to do with my tongue when I say specific words. I think this could make a real difference for me.

"Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend."

She brought scripts to practice with each other and gave the class many tips about acting with another actor or alone in front of a camera and casting director. She's also given a lot of advice about how to start a career in acting and is very supportive. It was really fun and her class helped me figure out that I have a passion for acting.

Comedy Shows in Chicago: Surviving Your First Improv Audition

If you’re reading up on improv auditions and comedy shows in Chicago, you’re already on the right track, even if you know nothing. Auditions for improv groups can differ quite a bit from other kinds.
