Ms. D was extremely patient and thorough with me. And her warm demeanor helped me calm my nerves and loosen up. I appreciate all the valuable insight and direction she gave me.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

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.

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.

"Zach is perhaps one of the smartest and most well rounded artists I've met. He has experience in all aspects of the business, from being an actor to a producer and to an award winning director, which makes him an unbelievable resource and teacher. I always look forward to our time together because I feel supported, heard, seen and never judged. He is always one step ahead which allows for very productive sessions. I leave our sessions feeling confident and fully prepared for whatever may come my way in auditions. I've worked with many people in this business and you do not come across people like him often. I feel incredibly grateful that I have Zach as a coach and resource. I cannot recommend him enough or give him higher praise."

Profile_212783_pi_Jackson%20Gay%20Headshot
"I had the privilege of studying stage directing with Jackson Gay at Yale. Jackson has a remarkable way of bringing out students' individual artistic and creative sensibilities. In scene workshops, she gives highly practical advice for working with actors to shape an overall dramatic vision. She also reinforces this instruction by relating her own professional experiences, highlighting what has been effective. Her guidance in script analysis is very clear, and showed me how to fully understand characters' dramatic objectives before going into rehearsals with actors.

As well, Jackson incorporated invaluable practical career advice into the class, which is often hard to find. One of her exercises for this was to pair us with another student and have a mock "writer-director" meeting, where the writer was considering hiring the director. This was a really helpful window into the professional process, which has given me an important springboard to communicate my own ideas in the production of new work.

Jackson Gay’s teaching applies across theater disciplines — for instance, my work in theater is primarily as a composer and lyricist. She showed me how to look at the big picture of a play or musical, giving me the insight to write in a way that is dramatically cogent, engaging, and entertaining."

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."

By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job).
