I am a lifelong actor and passionate teacher-- and I would love to take your work to the next level!

As a teaching artist, I have worked with students age 5-88 on audition preparation, role development, and physical and vocal technique. I am a certified Yoga teacher, and I love to draw on principles of mindfulness in performance preparation.

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to silly vocal exercises, we will develop a system that works for you. Best of all: we'll have a blast doing it.

A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

Also known as voice-over. Any time you hear the voice, but do not see the face connected to it. The unseen announcer, animations, supplying the voice for another actor.

So much of communication on stage, or in TV or film is done with body language, facial expressions, movements, actions, and voice to tell the story. A voice-over artist has to do it all with just her voice.

About Susan

I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fas

I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.

I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.

I understand that sometimes people have a hard time speaking in front of others, but really want to improve. Whether it be, because you aren't speaking clearly enough, aren't projecting enough or need to get over your jitters, let's see what we can do. We can work on monologues or look at what event you're preparing for. Even if it is a speech for school or for an event at work. Both Acting and Singing have helped me with these issues. Working in front of someone that knows what to listen for and can help you to tweak what you've been doing might be the best solution.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film (Comedy, Drama, and Improv,) I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

I specialize in developing well-rounded, confident actors! I'd love to be that person for you! :)

This was my first ever acting class and it was amazing and very informative. I learned A LOT in one session. I was really nervous starting this, however, Donnabella made me feel very comfortable.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

"What an amazing experience burlesque with Cat is! Walking into her intro class you are treated with smiles and warmth. At the beginning you may feel self-conscious. As the class continues Cat helps you to peel away any negativity allowing you to free your inner vixen. I know I am not alone when I say that by the end of class, I didn't change, I simply became more the me that I am meant to be. Bravo to Cat. I HIGHLY recommend any and all of her classes."

"I was always afraid I couldn't learn Shakespeare, but Nicholas explained the intent on the word, the intent on the line. Soon, I was so caught up in the meaning of the lines and the story I was telling in that moment that I was able to engage in the role, smoothly, without worrying that I was performing Shakespeare. He broke it down so I could understand it, and then feel confident doing it. Highly recommend!"
