I'm passionate about the arts and love to teach! I have over 19 years of performing arts experience, and 6 years of teaching experience (K-8th grade music, as well as dance and musical theatre camps for kids in my community). I received my Bachelor's degree in 2013, studying Theatre, Music, and Art.

What makes acting lessons with me unique is that I have a background in music and dance as well--as musical theatre is my specialty. As a teacher, I will tailor my lessons around you, at your own level and pace, and will do my best to meet your individual needs as a student and performer. After learning what your goals are, I will provide a variety of material for you to prepare and perform. In addition to some fun exercises, we will do in-depth analysis of monologues and dialogues/scenes. I also offer an Audition Prep course!

I am loving, creative, and meticulous--and great with children! We're going to have so much fun and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for the

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am ...

I tried 4 different vocal coaches to fix my vocal cord problem. A combination of anxiety and lack of technical understanding led me to cause tears in my vocal cord without yelling or belting.

My job requires a lot of talking... also I love talking, so I was determined to solve this problem.

After seeing a speech therapist, a clinical laryngologist, and a reiki healing specialist, I found Michelle.

Michele is patient with her approach and helped me learn how to technically and mentally protect my vocal cords from harm.

She is very perceptive: even through video lessons she is able to give me specific exercises to fix problems as they arise, and they are not always the same problem.

I have recommended Michelle to my friends and family and look forward to gifting voice lessons for holidays and birthdays because of the immense value they have added to my life.
Irene
Michelle is great! I have been hesitant about doing online lessons, but she makes them feel natural. I can hear and feel the difference in my voice after only a few meetings, and I always look forward to the next.

Great first lesson. Very knowledgeable and focuses on fundamentals and making sure you understand the actual inner workings of your voice, throat, and diaphragm.

Great first lesson! Teresa is very pleasant to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Looking forward to many more lessons to come!
Kiri
Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!
Brittany
She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

With over 20 years of acting experience on film, television, and theater. My credits include HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street, Tyler Perry’s The Haves and Have Nots, ABC’s Castle, and many more. My lessons are in-depth, whether studying acting technique, scene study, character breakdown, or getting ready for an audition. The audition process can be daunting, but I like to look at it as a way to ply our craft and learn. Casting directors respect preparedness, so make sure you are prepared before you go in on your next one. Let’s get started!

"I came to Jennie with basically 0 acting experience and wow am I glad I went to Jennie. She is the most kind, compassionate and supportive instructor out there. Her knowledge was vast and whether you want to get into film, Tv, theater or just wanna get out of your shell, Jennie is the instructor for you.

She helped me every step of the way to hone my craft, work on monologues, mock audition and so much more. Jennie’s way of teaching makes you think differently and she truly brings out the best side of you. Plus Jennie is so supportive going at my speed giving constructive feed back and making me feel great about my progress.

Lastly, Jennie was understanding of my time and worked around my schedule as well as the “homework” or “things to work on” she gave. Jennie was flexible and the Zoom calls worked incredibly well during this pandemic. Every day I would get off of our call with a smile on my face feeling accomplished!

Overall I would say Jennie was helpful, knowledgeable and a great instructor. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to start acting and have no idea where to begin."

"Ms. Yvette is 100% attentive to her students and their different levels of skill and experience. She is quite into "making the student look better" and not so much concerned with showing nay any client "How Good she Is". Let's face it, only the competent teachers need not rub your face in their expertise ... their actions speak louder than their egos. I have studies with only two other "competent" instructors, and I have been a writer, director, and actor on a few projects... were I to build a substantial team of reliable professionals: YVETTE would be on board! You can trust her with her honest feedback and attuned awareness for self improvement techniques. She is delightful and yet quite skilled. FIVE out of FIVE Stars. -30- -30- -30-"
