Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

I am a director who has made more than 700 television commercials, including three spots for the Superbowl I have won numerous award at Cannes, Clios, and AICP Awards. My skills are in acting for TV commercials, and preparing for auditions. A commercial script is not very obvious. I can help an actor to reveal wha is in the script and how to prepare the role for an audition. After twenty-five years makin ads, I can also offer advice about how to handle an audition, and the protocols for the director and ad agency once in the room. Defining what is essential for a audition for tv commercials--creating a character, varying interpretations, and the understanding of what is expected from the actor are all things I can help you with.

My pride is directing performance-based drama worked out in hundreds of commercials I’ve directed for leading agencies in North America and abroad.

Jamie is patient, encouraging, and helps you learn detailed techniques to make your voice sound better, as well as have lasting notes.
Daeon
Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!
Marie
Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.

Learn how to perform on stage with comfort and defeat stage fright! In your lesson you will learn how to project your voice, move on stage, deal with mics, learn the theater lingo, prepare your material (songs, monologues, etc), develop your character and stage presence, and much more! I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

Materials needed:
• I recommend that my students keep a practice journal to record their daily practice sessions.
• Please use a recording device so you can record your lessons. It's a HUGE help to be able to listen back on your lessons and to use them in your daily practice. We can record online lessons through most video platforms, but cellphones also have them if you prefer to record that way.
• I highly recommend and sometimes require buying sheet music for the songs you are singing.
• If you have music you're currently working on, feel free to bring it to our lesson so ...

"I always had a problem with public speaking. I don't articulate words well and don't have any volume. I'm shy and uncomfortable in front of people. Nicholas worked on vocal lessons and how to enunciate and project. We also did breathing exercises and where to place the tongue with words. I improved my diction and with that, got more confidence in speaking in front of people, which is important in my job. Highly Recommend."

"It really is more (Voice Acting) Script interpretation, and Diction; how to pronounce words in a script or paragraph, correctly. Fawn didn't waste any time, I was concerned about my Skype audio, no problem, and after a little wrangling, I figured out how to send her an audio file, and script I wanted her to look over.
She made notes, gave me suggestions, made comments on what I sent her, I'll do my home work; because I want to improve,and we'll do it again next week; same time time, same station... Sorry couldn't help that! She's the kind of coach I need right now!"
