Private Voice Acting Teacher

Learn to use your voice with ease with the Alexander Technique.

About Jameson

If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice.

My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs.

I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and early to contemporary classical music.

* Breath

control
* Healthy vocal production "bel canto"
* Fach transition
* 20th Century music

Roles performed:

Rodolfo, La Boheme
Canio, Pagliacci
Count Almaviva, Barbiere di Siviglia
Goro, Madama Butterfly
Mr Splinters, The Tender Land

The Cowboy, The Blue Hotel (Hulse)

Credits include:

* Aspen Opera Theater Center

* Boston Lyric Opera

I have made demonstration tapes for new works (musical theater and opera) and know how to work a new piece into any voice.

In addition, I have worked with the Alexander Technique for over 15 years and integrate its principles into my lessons. My approach is creative, energetic and disciplined.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and every lesson will be different depending on the needs of the individual, and the demands of the day. I use the principles of the Alexander Technique to open up the student's mind and body to new experiences.

In general, lessons will start with a simple warm-up. Then scales and arpeggios to develop agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. Finally, the last part of the lesson I incorporate some of the new ideas that were communicated earlier into the student's repertoire.

I have had 2 voice lessons with Jameson, and I really like him and his approach. He has simple techniques that help me sing better: expand my range and vocal quality. I think in a short time I will have significant improvement.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

Acting is such a broad term! What are your goals? Do you want to be in films? Do you want to do Shakespeare? Do you want to be in a sit com? Depending upon what your interests are and where you want to go, we will build a plan together. My philosophy on acting techniques is that they are tools to help you, not tests you pass if you're a good actor and fail if you're a bad one. Different techniques work for different people and it is our job to find out what inspires you.

I've worked as a professional actor for many years, performed on Broadway, have my MFA in Performing Arts, and my BA in Arts and Education. I was an assistant director to Tony-winner Sharon Ott and have written and produced my own work. I have experience in both stage and camera acting, which have specific technical differences, but are both a lot of fun once you get used to the medium. Audition technique, preparing monologues, and creating promotional materials are also things I can help with. Anyone who wants to ...

About Rebecca

My approach is both supportive and pragmatic, based on where each individual's skill set is right now and what your specific goals are. I've had the benefit of both formal instruction as well as a decade in the "school of hard knocks." Climbing up the ladder to earn my Equity Card on a Production Contact taught me a lot and I believe gave me a nuanced perspective as a performer.

Over 95% of my career is from attending open calls, including finding representation and my Broadway debut.

I continue to audition for film, television, and theatre, as well as perform in concerts and other venues. I write and produce my own work and am currently signed with Roth and Associates East.

A-mazing! She’s an awesome mentor! Her approach to singing is brilliant in the sense that she helps you explore yourself, your strengths and areas you could work on to improve. She helps you find and utilize your voice in a way that makes a unique artist. She digs in right to the foundation of singing (vocals) and performing. I am glad to have found her! And to add up, I never had a dull moment with her with her sense of humor and caring approach!

Stephen enjoys helping actors go from average to engaging, with the experience to prepare an actor for a casting director's office or a TV or movie set.

About Stephen

I have been a Screen Actor's Guild and AFTRA member since the 1980's and have real experience as a working actor. I have had a contract roles on soap operas, recurred 18 times as Dr. Beresford on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and have had numerous episodic TV roles. I usually coach actors for on-camera work, either with scripts they provide -- or I can help you find a scene or monologue that's right for you to work on.

Learn how to properly care for your voice, create a character, speak with an accent, and more! As a singer, voice over artist and vocal coach, I can help you reach your vocal potential!

About Norwood

I am a professional vocal coach with 5+ years of experience, as well as an international pop artist, actor, emcee and public speaker. I've studied a wide range of techniques including classical vocal training, contemporary singing, and the SLS (Speech Level Singing) method.

Over the years I've trained under the best vocal coaches in the nation including Jan Smith (Usher, Justin Bieber, Rob Thomas, etc.), RAab Stevenson (Justin Timberlake, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, etc.), Lis Lewis (Maroon 5, Rihanna, etc.), and Renee Grant-Williams (The Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, etc).

This wide range of study combined with years of teaching and performance experience have given me a vast vocal vocabulary to help teach others the "secret sauce" of singing and speaking. I have experience teaching from ages 8+, for those wit

h special needs, in a wide variety of styles and genres. I also teach professional speakers and actors how to use their speaking voice properly. My students say that I am a patient teacher who takes time to explain how the voice works and help them reach their potential.

My goal is to help share the fantastic techniques I've learned from the A-Level coaches with the masses at a fraction of the cost. Students of mine often hear a big improvement in their voice after only two weeks of lessons!

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.

My 10-year-old son Lucky started taking lessons with Norwood a few months ago, and it’s like a star has been born! He has seen a big boost in his confidence, his pitch has gotten much better, and he really enjoys the lessons. He has even started performing! The changes have happened very fast.

nd productive, highly recommended"

Liam
"Danielle is such a versatile teacher that I almost feel like I have to write two glowing reviews about her. I began by taking singing lessons with her, bu
t after a while I decided to try acting as well. This review might be slightly longer than the others, so the synopsis is: if you've ever wanted to do any singing, acting, voice acting, or any kind of performance really, talk to Danielle. You'll be glad you did.

I first met Danielle when I finally decided to try singing lessons to see what it was like. I'm so glad that Danielle is the teacher I decided to go with, she's an incredible voice coach and person. The improvements I made in such a short time with her and that I could see every lesson were so much more than I ever expected, and she's so supportive that I've ended up getting totally outside of my comfort zone without even realizing it.

Now for the second part: I decided I wanted to try acting, and since this is also something Danielle excels at doing and teaching in addition to singing, doing acting lessons with her was a no-brainer. Knowing me and my strengths, she suggested we start by trying out voice acting. I am in no way exaggerating when I say that I did one voice acting lesson with Danielle and was so encouraged by her, that I went out and got a paying job as a voice actor that same week. And Danielle helped me through every step of the process, and might have been the only person more excited about my success than I was!

Meeting Danielle and taking lessons with her has changed the entire career path I want to follow in ways I never imagined. I cannot recommend her enough! Even if you're just looking for some great singing lessons on the weekends and not a new life trajectory, you'll be glad you met Danielle :)."

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!"

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out

By Suzy S.

When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, it’s animation. The key component of voice acting, even more than secrecy and seclusion, is versatility. An in-demand voice actor may be called upon to provide the pipes for a cartoon rabbit in a kid's show on Friday, …
