Coaching

IMG_9210.jpg

As an artist myself, I know what it is like to want to find the “perfect” piece - be it song, monologue, scene etc. - that you enjoy doing, is unique to you, shows your essence… the list goes on and on. We often struggle and then settle. But I am here to tell you, you don’t have to, nor should you!

Whether it is finding material or honing in on material you already have, I am here to empower you — with material that becomes yours, spoken/sung in your natural voice, all felt in your most grounded self. The goal is to let your truest self shine through whatever work & words you are bringing to life and I have no doubt we will do just that together.

Now, let’s unleash the storyteller you are meant to be!


What People Say

Victoria Guerra

Jennifer has an intense love for acting and that is what makes her an AMAZING coach! Each time we met I felt safe to play and explore as she always provided a nurturing and supportive learning environment. Jennifer helped me to refine previously learned skills while also teaching me new ones, and I am extremely grateful for all of her support and guidance. With her guidance I now have 4 monologues that are not only audition ready, but are also material that I am excited about. Working with her is such a positive experience as she is extremely knowledgeable and passionate, genuinely cares about the actors that she coaches, and knows how to explain things so that they understandable and doable. Her guidance has really brought my acting skills to the next level and I HIGHLY recommend her!! www.VictoriaGuerra.net

Emily Turner Marsland

I loved coaching with Jennifer! She was incredibly insightful with what kind of piece I should be working on, while also letting me make my own choices. As we worked on the piece itself, she was direct and tough, but always with kindness and encouragement. I look forward to coaching all of my pieces with Jennifer going forward. www.emilyturnermarsland.com

Julia Wilde

I highly recommend Jennifer Apple. Her coaching helped me take my monologues to new fiercely authentic places. She’s kind but honest and pushes you to bravely face the direction you need to go. She made space for the process that allowed me to be the best version of myself when I stepped into the audition room.  I couldn’t recommend her enough for those looking to audition for a graduate program or brush up on their monologues. www.JuliaWildeActor.com

I’m a senior in high school and I’m planning to major in the performing arts.  Jennifer has been a huge help.  She is extremely professional, an amazing teacher and has really helped me figure out the material that speaks to me.  This is such a busy time for a senior, and Jennifer is super flexible and makes herself accessible whenever I need her.  Jennifer helped me find strategies that made my acting more specific and personal.  I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for audition prep or coaching.

Majoring in theater or musical theater is an arduous task. Just ask any parent who has tried to navigate this insane process without the help of a college audition coach. The trouble is, this cottage industry has become nearly as crazy as the audition process itself. Jennifer Apple is an amazing coach. She is a consummate professional who has an innate ability to motivate, teach, and organize mountains of information and deadlines. Although we are still going through the process, I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a coach who not only has impeccable credentials but is an outstanding teacher and exceptional mentor.

Jennifer Apple is a fantastic Acting Teacher. She is well versed in all styles in acting. She can teach you physical comedy to Strasberg and is willing to grow you in whatever style works best for you. She will bring a deep commitment to your growth and understands the relationship between student and teacher; constantly pushing you but rewarding you on your journey. Her vast knowledge of Acting allows her to recommend works to her students that are deeply impactful. Every actor or artist is in search of their tonal area. Jennifer will help you find what area you find most impactful and will teach you ways to create something you find deeply meaningful. Jennifer helped me piece it all together. Jennifer showed me how to self tape, how to understand the text on a deeper level, and she showed me how to throw it all away and let it rip. More than anything she pushed me to be curious in the text and in myself. No matter what form of Acting you’re interested in you can always count on Jennifer to be in full commitment to your growth.

Melanie Asofsky

Jennifer has been an essential part of Mia’s (my daughter) preparation for college auditions. She devotes her time, energy, resources, creativity and knowledge to the process as well as lots of positivity and confidence building. She is extremely reliable and communicative with scheduling and logistics while being patient and flexible with a high schooler's hectic schedule. Our experience with Jennifer has been fantastic and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for help through the complicated and sometimes stressful audition process.
