Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!

It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.
Steven
I initially started with Darren in Orlando in 1990. Being a talent manager I wanted to understand acting better to better help my clients needs. After a few lessons I had learned so much that I required my entire client stable of about 25 people to take his class. He had to add an additional night to handle my people. In a couple weeks I saw incredible growth. In a few months I had the best acting stable in Orlando. My people were working.

Darren is one of the most talented actors and teachers I’ve ever come across. But he’s not the coach for someone who takes it lightly. He’ll work your butt off.

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!
Steve
Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

"James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!"

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."
