Jessi believes in helping actors find freedom in their work by first and foremost being themselves in their acting. Jessi guides students through activating the imagination, trusting yourself in your work, and finding fun and play. Jessi works closely with Sarah Baskin (Anthony Meindl’s Acting Studio) to further develop solid, foundational acting technique for young actors.
Jessi believes that technique is the “foundation of vocal health, stability, and growth and should be first and foremost in our development.” Jessi currently works closely with NYC’s top vocal teacher, Michael Jacobs, to further develop her advanced technical approach consisting of breathing, stretches, tension release, and placement. The ultimate goal for us as singers is to stop thinking about every step while singing because the foundation is completely reliable. If we trust the process, amazing transformations can happen!
