She taught the first live class I ever attended. She’s super upbeat and encouraging. I was super nervous with it being my first class, but her positive attitude instantly helped me to feel relaxed. Will definitely work with her again in the future!

She Helps you With singing and acting, She has great presentations prepared for every class and is my favorite teacher for acting and singing!
Hunter
Please disregard my earlier review. I was in Mama Bear mode and after having discussed the matter with Aubrey, I retract my statements. The only suggestion I might make is that she check in with the students about how they felt about their class today? I know time is limited and this would be easy to do in a perfect world. I truly appreciate the way she reached out to me and my child to explain the misunderstanding after the fact.

I'm new here! If you're looking to work in TV and film, I teach all about the acting industry! I having decades of experience, having earned my SAG/AFTRA card in 1984! I've worked on over 1,000 TV/ film projects and over 300 commercials!

I give students the correct inside information about the industry, how to get booked, necessary tools, and include insider tips and leads to fast track their careers!

As an Adjunct University Professor for six years, and 15 years teaching at entertainment schools in both CA. and NYC, I enjoyed guiding students to successful careers in television, film, and TV commercials!

I offer classes in proven techniques for TV/film acting, (Screen Acting) as well as courses that are specific for TV commercial acting (Acting in TV Commercials). There IS a big difference between stage, screen, and TV commercial acting, so each course teaches a separate and proven technique!

I also offer classes in cold reading and auditioning skills (Cold Reading Course) ...

I have known Gina for almost 30 years. She has worked in the industry for as long as I've known her, and has always been a person of integrity, grace, and professionalism. While I haven't been her student, I would highly recommend her for anyone who is considering working in this very demanding and competitive industry. You will find her vast experience and ethics to be invaluable.
Paula P.
I took several of Gina’s classes in 2018 and 2019 and I’m happy I did! She taught me excellent acting techniques as well as important information about the industry which I don’t think I’d get somewhere else. I was 100% more confident and skilled in my ability as an actor after her classes and highly recommend her!
Dr. James Monaghan
Gina is an outstanding instructor. She brings her extensive experience in Hollywood to the classroom in a manner that is accessible, informative and rigorous. She demonstrated in a wide variety of acting courses an approachability, a genuineness and a care for our university students that was truly remarkable.

Our acting program was new, and her duties included developing new curriculum, curricular materials and assessment tools for several classes. She did this splendidly well, taking her vast experience and creating courses that were described as among the best that students had ever taken.

Indeed, her student course evaluations were consistently very high, among the best at our university. She was the epitome of a professional, who brought her deep experience to students with a real-world sensibility as well as a commitment to the highest ethical standards.

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
