Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Career guidance, acting technique, audition prep... After a decade in Hollywood, I know a thing or two about the CRAFT and BUSINESS of acting! I've booked over a DOZEN speaking roles on TV and Film including How to Get Away with Murder, The Young & the Restless, and Jane the Virgin, I appear on national commercials yearly, and I've played voices in award-winning audiobooks. I am also a former NBA dancer & collegiate cheerleader!

A decade ago, I wish I had had someone to help me fill in the missing pieces.

What more can I do? What should I do differently?

Donnabella is a great teacher to have. I started off shy and unsure of what I was doing but I have been slowly gaining confidence because of her positive personality. She educated me a lot from the start and gives good advices to improve on. She's chill and focused on helping me grow. I am able to understand acting more now through her experiences. She knows her stuff!

Donnabella is a great instructor and teacher! She gives practical advice that you can use immediately for an audition. She works with you to refine your skills and work toward your goals.

James Jr.
Kent has the ability to do or teach drama, comedy and improvisation. He has wisdom, talent, intelligence and integrity. I know of his abilities to teach, direct and to create a performance of the highest level. He's one of the best, as I know from having been taught by him. Try him out and judge for yourself. You'll be better for it in more ways than one.

I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career.

Even if you're a natural performer who can cry on command and memorize lines, you'll need to learn the following fundamental drama techniques to really master the art of acting. 1.
