    Jordan Fetter is a phenomenal and dedicated coach. He encouarges you to always be proud of the work you put your name on, and likewise he only produces magnificent work. Fetter emphasizes thorough background character work and intentional choices during performance. He'll help you perfect an accent and natural gestures. Fetter's not afraid to make you dig deeper into your own life experiences to add an extra layer of depth to your characters. He is eager to help and work with you. Fetter continues to be a helpful mentor in my life and I would definitely work with him again in any theatrical capacity. I highly recommend working with The Academy of Acting and Musical Theatre, your efforts will be magnified by these dedicated professionals.

    Jenny is a wonderful teacher and coach. She coached me on my song & monologue selections for college auditions. She really helped me to understand the context of each piece, and allowed me to connect myself to it ~ she works with you to make sure it really resonates with you. And she knows when you’re faking it and not actually in it! She’s got a great sense of humor and took a lot of the pressure out of it, actually made me relax a bit and enjoy the process. After my big audition I was called back to numerous schools and received an acting scholarship to the school I’ll be attending in the fall 😊. Thank you Jenny! I am sooo grateful to you and your team for helping me make it all happen! ❤️

    Ever since those teachers laid eyes on me, I had been totally invested into, intellectually and emotionally. They’ve reminded me of my reason to perform, go live, to breathe. I love the training, teachers, and the overall experience, and I swear you all will too!

    Working with someone like Jordan Fetter, who really believes in your potential and abilities, has been absolutely crucial to developing my confidence as a performer. The safe and open environment that he allows for is conducive to growth as a theatre artist. Any boldness or originality in my work as a performer is a direct effect of my training with Fetter. I was always encouraged and pushed to find my own voice and have complete confidence in it! I would absolutely recommend any actor to work with such a phenomenal director!!
