Private Coaching in The Workroom

"I recommend Jeanie to actors because of her strong theater background & her own extensive experience in front of the camera. She is able to give them the best of both worlds: strong, interesting choices based on good script analysis & the experience to know how to make those choices work for the camera."
MATTHEW LESHER, Insight Entertainment

Welcome to the Olympics of acting. The super-competitive arena of the art & industry in NYC & LA means that the readiness really is all. Out of the gate: acting that is fearless, original, real, fueled by the white-hot energy of your intelligence, sexuality, humor, need, danger, warmth, confidence, aggression, vulnerability & charisma. This is YOU manifesting every bit of your potential. Great work. That's what we're going for.

I coach actors for lead / series regular / guest & co-star roles for film / tv / theater. Sessions focus on audition prep & technique / work on the role once you've landed the job &/or ongoing work on monologues & acting technique. On-set, I work in concert with the director to ensure that our work enhances what he / she is going for. 

We set a goal for every audition -- which always has to do with something you want to achieve for yourself in the work. We look at how you're handling the audition experience as well as collaborating to make strong, vibrant choices that reveal who you are & infuse your work with confidence. I always ask actors to check in with me after the audition to touch base, observe & share how it went. 

I enjoy long relationships with my clients, working with them through all the many phases of their artistic & career growth. Actors usually come to me directly through agents / managers, or through referral from other actors. I take on new clients as my schedule permits. Once I accept a new client I do everything in my power to be available when you need me. We work at my studio at my home in North Hollywood.

My coaching fee ranges between $110 & $250 per session. The amount I charge depends on whether we work at my home studio, or if I come to you, either at your home or on set. People who study with me get significant discounts on private coaching. I give discounts for purchasing 5 or 10 sessions in advance. I sometimes charge less, at my discretion, for theater auditions, non-paying work & work on an ongoing basis. Feel free to ask me how this works.

Each session is roughly an hour & 1/2. I take 15 minutes to prep your material on my own & 15 minutes for us to chat/catch up on where you are right now in your work, what you want next for yourself, what you're grappling with. And then the good stuff: we always spend at least one full hour working on your material.

Based on my availability, I do free 15 minute check-ins on the day of the audition. I will also schedule 1/2 hour sessions for actors whose work I know for shorter scenes.
