Words From Our Hosts
"I was most impressed by Jillian's connection with each student as she worked with them and by her command of the space. Everyone felt safe, confident, and ready to work. My colleague told me afterwards that Jillian's workshop was the best use of Meisner he'd ever seen for musical theatre."
"Jillian showed my musical theatre majors how to apply this technique in such a nurturing, challenging, and engaging workshop. She emphasized trusting your preparation while being present in the moment and she used her acute power of observation to address each individual. All this in the virtual medium, which was really remarkable."

"Meisner in Music is the missing puzzle piece to being successful in the room. It allows you to stand out of the vast crowd, showcasing the truth and honesty to the story you are telling through song. The moment you step into Jillian's workshop, you will know you are taking the right steps towards bettering your craft, brand, and overall career."
"Jillian is a profoundly compassionate & impassioned instructor. She empowered my students to access deep emotional authenticity within minutes. Any actor working at any level will find Jillian and her work an invaluable addition to their toolkit, as both a performer and educator."
Not just a class, but an experience
Participants of our workshops get to dive right in and play with the simplifying, magnetizing Meisner technique. We laugh, we often cry, and we get deep into the things that hold us back from being our authentic selves while singing.
Not just about singing, but being
There’s a reason that when we watch actors like Viola Davis, Olivia Colman, and Anthony Hopkins, we see them just being, leaving themselves alone and doing so little and yet so much: they’re Meisner-trained. Leaving ourselves alone to find freedom to sing is all we’re working toward in our workshops. We discuss psychological shifts when we sing and draw parallels between the Meisner technique and research-backed grounding tools that get us out of our heads so that we just get to be.
