I teach them all and let my students decide which works for them.  We build CONFIDENCE!  Our Actors seek representation (Agents) and they are getting it!

    I really enjoyed working with here, I did not want the project we were working on to end. I respected her vision and how she went above and beyond to bring that vision to life. Her writing is excellent, and her coaching is exceptional. I have not been in acting in years and was so nervous about getting back into acting. She made the process easy and always gracefully reminded me that I could do this.

    Jeanette truly knows how to pull talent from any actor. She challenges each of her students to reach for something they never knew was in them. To observe her in her element is amazing. She’s extremely engaging and knowledgeable. .

    Jeanette will bring the best out of any actor/actress she works with. She teaches the PROFESSIONAL way to do things and will have an actor/actress prepared for anything! I have learned so many new things such as lingo, acting techniques, stage directions, how to audition, and so much more! Jeanette has helped grow my knowledge of the industry and now I’m able to showcase my talent with confidence! Thank you Jeanette!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Because we all learn differently, I assess the needs of each of my student to ensure the information I provide will be effective in their learning process.  I want to make sure it registers.  I teach on a level that a 12-year old would understand and I make it fun enough that at 99 year old would enjoy.  I make new students comfortable not with me only, but they first must be comfortable with themselves.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Masters Degree in Adult Education & Training and I've studied over 20 years in Performing arts.  I performed as an adolescent into adulthood with various performing arts entitites with hands-on training by several well known voice, vocal and performing arts coaches. 

I've written and directed plays for 20 years and publicly produced over 10 productions where I've worked as casting directing, producer and director.

2015 I was voted "Playwright of the Year"

2016 I won a Telly Award for casting director for PSA "Alliance For Children" nonprofit

How did you get started teaching?

Since I was 18 years old I worked as an instructor,  I am now 50...so that haven't been that long as you've noticed. I started out as a Daycare Teacher then later went back to school to get a degree in teaching.  I started teaching acting in 2009, when I wrote my first public stage play.  I grabbed some untrained actors to put on a show and coached them throughout the process.  The show was a sell-out and a HIT! I knew then that my gift was to train.  I've been training every since.  


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with beginners and professionals of all ages and ethnicities.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We were on NBC Dallas News 4/18/19 talking about film "Den of Artists" a film I wrote about Peer Pressure.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I suggest you talk to them one on one for any questions you may have then ask if you can sit in on a class before you commit to hiring them.  Make sure you have chemistry that works together, because it requires work on both parts.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. What are your acting goals?

2. How soon do you want to meet these goals?

3. How much work do the STUDENT plan to put in?

4. How much work will the TEACHER contribute.
