Teaching since:

Hi! I lived in Hollywood for 8 years and realized that with technology- you really can live in the suburbs and do it all. I work with adults and kids- wherever they are at and work to inspire passion where it is needed, make it fun and help develop talent.

Entertainment: I am on both sides of the casting table. I have a production company, but started as an actress studying with a Russian coach while living back east. Training includes Stella Adler Academy of Acting, The Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford upon Avon, Musical theatre at The Catholic University, and Hostage Negotiations with the FBI. I produce and act in films, webseries, straight plays and musicals.

As a pianist, over 25 years of playing for shows, choirs, special events and musical directing. I began as an accompanist at age 9 and keep up the weekly skills of sight reading. Also a singer/pianist. Everyone studying with me reads music so that they can play whatever they want in the future.

Classical Piano · In studio

My daughter loves, loves Ms. Jacquie as her private piano teacher and her tap teacher. Ms Jacquie is kind and patient and she definitely knows how to motivate my daughter to want to work hard and achieve more. My daughter looks up to Ms. Jacquie as a fine role model of a dedicated performer. And as a parent, I love Ms Jacquie for how much she sincerely loves and care for my daughter.
