I have been teaching and coaching actors for 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

I have had a wonderful experience with Jeremy. I am completely new to acting- I am a physician and wanted to improve my public speaking skills and my "stage presence" so to speak. Jeremy has been incredibly helpful with this! He has done a great job of teaching me some basics about acting, and also tailoring the lessons to meet my goals. Also, it has been really fun! I highly recommend Jeremy as a teacher.

Really Great teacher, patient, knowlegable and listens. Highly recommend.

The lessons were very informative. She was able to relate to her students in a very positive way, which made the class very enjoyable.
Beer
She was a good teacher that I ever had. I had a short lesson with her but I was able to develop my skill that could help me understand more about singing and the techniques. Even though I didn't have class with her anymore, but I'm still practice when I have a chance.
Brandon
My fiancée is a musician, so I figured I’d better take up lessons so I could be more involved. I took lessons with Trish for a few weeks until I moved to Memphis, she’s very professional and friendly as well. I was very happy with the progress I made and knowledge that she gave me. It’s helped me locate the next right classes to attend as I moved to Memphis!
