lessons or you can bring a friend for work on acting scenes. The
acting lessons are great if you are just

Jeanette offers beginning piano lessons. Students will work with a lesson book to help guide them in learning proper music theory and technique. Once the student has grasped some of the basics, Jeanette will implement fun songs into the lessons to accompany the teachings of the music book. Students can play songs they like and still learn theory and musicianship along the way.
All private students have the
opportunity to perform at the Showcases and other performances throughout the year.
Alexander Technique can be helpful for voice and acting students. Through the Alexander Technique lessons, students learn to free their bodies of the tension, stress, and pain brought on by daily activities, habits, or injuries. The Alexander technique combines posture and movement patterns. Your body will be guided into new postures and ways to move while keeping your good posture, creating free and easy movements that are effortless and free from tension. Breathing patters will also coincide with your posture and movements. These techniques can be used to help with daily actives as well as with singing and acting.
