I am a professional performer, director, and acting coach with over 35 years of experience, and I love leading you to your best work! I can prepare you for a specific audition ( with monologue, sides, or song), or I can provide material so that we can work on a broad set of acting skills and techniques. I will provide guidance, feedback, training, and industry tools, all to have you feeling great about your newly-refined work on stage. My teaching style is energetic and encouraging, and layered with the insights I have gathered from my work as a producer, director, playwright, and performer in all stage genres ....Drama, Improv Comedy, Musical Theater, Comedies, Farce, Commedia dell'Arte. Let's work!

Carolyn German has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She's a great combination of friendly, yet professional, and brings many years of varied experience to her craft into the teaching experience. She's very easy to work with, I never felt self-conscious about any of what I consider to be my flaws, and she has truly helped me to develop more well-rounded characters, as well as some very much needed self-confidence.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

Amy is absolutely incredible. She showed keen interest in my concerns and challenges. She listened and knew exactly what I needed to do to get to where I want to be. She makes it easy for me to understand and she is truly a great coach. I can’t wait to see her again.

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 invested in

Working with me, gives you the experience of both an actor and a director. I see from inside your character and from your audience. I have worked with actors from first-time neophytes to professionals and styles from method to experimental styles of the 60s to improv and back to Shakespeare. I taught theatre in High School and College as well as community classes for children. I have acted and directed for many years.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!

She’s awesome! I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time already

Excellent!

Carolyn is an incredible teacher and a fantastic role model. Her encouragement, patience, skill and attention to detail has resulted in my daughter having learned (and continuing to learn) more than we could have ever imagined musically (voice/piano), and about performing on stage. Being Carolyn's student has also resulted in our daughter having more self confidence and higher self esteem. Carolyn brings out the best in her students and the dedication that she has for them is unparalleled. It has been a joy to watch our daughter grow as a musician under Carolyn's instruction.

Today what's the first lesson for my two girls with Carolyn. All I can say but the lesson was absolutely amazing my girls came out extremely inspired with lots of exciting homework to do they couldn't wait to show me what they've learned and couldn't wait to start practicing Carolyn was everything we were hoping for and a lot more. I have no doubts that would have made the best choice who could possibly make. My girls can't wait for their next lesson.👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👏👏👏👏

"Improv Acting with Jessie

In January, I decided to take a last minute opportunity to apply for a job at Disney World over the summer. After doing some research regarding the audition process, I found out that there was a brief improv portion involved in the audition. About two and a half to three weeks before the audition, I found Jessie and booked four lessons.
What I received from my lessons was more than I could have ever hoped for. Jessie is an amazing teacher. She is very knowledgable, gives incredibly feedback and advice, and in addition to what an awesome teacher she is, she also is INCREDIBLY flexible and willing to work with your schedule."

"Participated in an improv class with Christine a few years ago. Not only was it great fun but made me feel as though I actually had a tiny bit of a goft for it which has proved useful to me when I give talks in the area. As a journalist and author I do a lot of talks and that improv class has proved very valuable and it was educational too."
