I have 20-plus years of experience as an acting teacher and have helped many students succeed in their auditions. I have experience in both stage and film acting, as well as in musical theatre performance. My focus is on helping students achieve believable and compelling performances that directors will remember. I also know the ins and outs of the business and can help students learn the ropes of the business side of "THE BIZ."

I taught acting and directing at the college level for 18+ years. I have also coached and directed students from ages 9-70. I am trained in stage, film, commercial and voiceover acting and have worked professionally in all of these arenas. I also have lots of knowledge about the industry ins and outs. I LOVE helping take student performances to the next level, and I am confident that I can help you improve your skills, no matter what level of experience you have. Let's work together!

Just took first lesson, super excited to work with Jan! She’s very encouraging and gave me some great critiques. I felt like we got off to a great start. I am looking forward to future lessons and seeing what’s in store!
