Private lessons will tackle character development, scene analysis and breakdown, beats, creating strong choices, as well as camera technique for film/tv and/or stage blocking if the scene is for a theater audition or performance. Classes will always be tailored to the student's needs and goals.

About Michelle

VOCAL COACH
Rehabilitating and strengthening voices are two of my top specialties, and each lesson will have specific exercises tailored to helping you transform your voice into the highest and best version of your instrument. I work with singers signed to labels as well as the indie artist just starting to find his/her voice, style, and signature sound. My coaching approach incorporates some of the newest technologies that have shown extraordinary results in breaking down the inner blocks of each artist. It is a tremendously joyful and fulfilling experience to watch as my students really let their instrument shine brightly, boldly, and with an aboslutely stunning groundedness as they discover how powerful they truly are.

MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER/PERFORMER

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G

. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her singing can also be heard on the hit tv show "Jane The Virgin", "Castle" and "Shameless" amongst others.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique
- Violin Pedagogy
- Acting Audition Technique

I want my students to enjoy the arts but the music and acting is hard work. My students will be well rounded in their subjects and have

the opportunity to cross over if they would like.
I pay attention to my students needs and wants. I would like students to be open minded about the work that they are being taught but I also want to take their interests to heart. If a student brings me music or a monologue that they would like to work on, I will review it and try to incorporate it within our studies.

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

Private Acting Teacher

For me as an actor, the benefit of a great coach or director has always been that they've helped me reach places in my work I couldn't have achieved on my own. As a coach myself, I'm most thrilled by those small (or monumental!) breakthroughs that my students and I discover together during the coaching process. The cool thing is that I've found the progress my students make in their craft will often inspire me to new heights in my own. (A bonus to already enriching work)!

If you want to develop new material for upcoming auditions, hone and refresh (or completely change) your monologues, or simply work on the craft of acting, I can help. I work to gear your coaching sessions to the goals you need to achieve, offering an experience created around what you need to work on and want to learn.

With a BFA in Acting and Directing, an MFA in Classical Acting, and over 20 years of professional acting experience in the theatre and on-camera, I can offer tools for your tool belt ...

About Jason

I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting. Performing with professional repertory companies like ACT Theatre, Book-It Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, I've gained personal knowledge of the art, craft, and business of being a working actor, which I will put to work for you, in a personalized one-on-one coaching session, either online or in person.

Here's how I can help.

SCENE WORK AND MONOLOGUES: Whether it's dusting off and refreshing monologues you've performed more times than you can count, or developing pieces or scenes for the first time for an upcoming stage or on-camera audition, we can break the material down togethe

r, work on the clarity of your choices and active objectives, and access your personal connection to the material so you'll be ready and confident with a one-of-a-kind performance that reflects the strengths you bring to acting and the story you want to tell.

SHAKESPEARE: Perhaps the most daunting of styles for a contemporary actor, we'll get down to the nuts and bolts of some of the most challenging (and rewarding) material. The famous soliloquies are famous for a reason and can certainly be intimidating, and more obscure material can seem thick and inaccessible. We'll chip away at the mystique of Shakespeare by digging in to the text and verse, activating the language with specificity, and cultivating your personal take on well-known characters or lesser known material they might not have seen before.

DIALECTS AND ACCENTS: From English to Irish to Southern American and beyond, a well executed dialect can be the edge you need to land (and play) that meaty role. I use a multipronged approach that involves ear training to develop an authentic sound, text analysis for clarity of sound substitutions (IPA Proficient), and exercises that pare away stilted and unnatural speech to cultivate an authentic sounding voice that will be your own.

VOICEOVER: I've been booking voiceover gigs on TV, radio, and the internet for over 10 years with clients like Microsoft, Liberty Mutual, UW Medicine, Tableau, Reno Toyota, and Golden One State Credit Union. I can offer tips and tricks of the trade, as well as techniques that can take your VO submissions to the next level and help you book these lucrative contracts.

Let's get started!

Jason has been an amazing coach for my incredibly active animated son. He is great at redirecting my boy when he has trouble focusing and provides immediate feedback to help my son make progress. We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family. Jason it a true professional and communicates beautifully with me. I am looking forward to continuing lessons for my son!

Jason previously worked with my teenage daughter and they made vast improvements in her acting skills and college audition. She was accepted into AMDA. Now he is working with my older daughter to help her get ready to audition at UW and get a working reel together. He is fantastic and really good with any learning differences or styles that might come up.

Do you need help finding the perfect audition monologue? Want some coaching on your performance? Need some advice on a scene or a script? I have taught acting, voice, and movement for the past two years and work with people of all skill levels and experience. I believe in a holistic approach to acting, so I work on enhancing imagination, body, and voice. I can work with you on general acting technique, presence, healthy use of voice, movement work, dialects, or any or all of the above!

My teaching is very individualized, so I'll work with you to discover what your unique goals and needs are and then design a plan based on that. I believe in guiding rather than dictating, so I will always act as the guide to your discoveries rather than dictating what your performance "should" be. My background is primarily in Meisner acting work, so I will work with you to "act truthfully under imaginary circumstances". I also provide speech, voice, and movement work to supplement the acting work ...

About Kevan

Hi! I'm an actor, director, and playwright who loves sharing my passion for theatre with people of all ages. I am primarily an acting teacher specializing in the Meisner technique. I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma with a BFA in Acting and Texas Tech University with an MFA in Theatre Performance. I have had the opportunity to train from some of the country's most exceptional theatre artists, and bring a wide array of tools to my work as an acting coach.

Acting is hard work, but it should be fun! I'll teach you specific techniques or we can work on specific material.
Students can expect a highly personalized experience; I like to "meet the student where they are", serving as a guide and a coach rather than an all-knowing guru. Whatever your experience, skill, or comfort level with performing may be, I will work with

you using the tools in my toolbox to make you a more present, spontaneous, and engaging performer. I teach students to better understand their character and make spontaneous choices, living fully in the moment as an actor instead of worrying about "what's my next line?" or "do I look silly?"

Let's find what's unique about you and find ways to use it!

I can also work with students on healthy use of voice, dialects, and movement. I specialize in French, Russian, Cockney, Received Pronunciation (RP), Southern American, and Irish dialects. I'm excited to work with you!

Jennie is a wonderful speaking coach! She is incredibly kind, patient, and encouraging. I feel much more confident in how I present myself to others, especially those I've just met in the formal setting of an interview. Jennie has prepared me with warmup exercises to suit any type of mood, whether it be calming down or harnessing nervous energy in a positive way. Additionally, I learned effective ways to be more present and truly connect with people in interviews. I recommend working with Jennie- she is very genuine and truly cares about her students. I look forward to the chance to work with her in the future!

"I am thrilled whenever I get the chance to work with Ben. He always manages to help me not only to do well in shows, but to improve as an actor in general
. He has a wide range of knowledge in the theater, so I am able to learn about many aspects of acting and theatre in general. As a director, Ben not only has a great vision, but can also explain to the actors what that vision is, and how they can best achieve it. He is always willing to answer questions and help me in any way that he can. He makes the people around him feel comfortable and safe, so they don't feel judged when experimenting on the stage. He inspires me every time we work together, and offers endless encouragement. Without great teachers like Ben, I never would have had the tools, or confidence, to follow my passion of theatre."
