Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

I really enjoyed my lesson with Dr. Jefferson today! She gave me valuable information to help me get started and apply for upcoming lessons. I selected my monologue 🤩 and I'm ABSOLUTELY excited for our next session!
Linda
It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I've had the pleasure of working along side Marie as a colleague. I was able to witness first hand her compassionate nature and her dedication towards her students and towards teaching. She sets the bar high for her students but helps them along in a caring and patient manner so that they can achieve all their goals. She is knowledgeable and experienced in her subject matter and I have no doubt that she can help your child reach success.
Guerschom D.
I had Ms. Marie for French and she was one of my favourite teachers. The amount of patience that she had with some of my very troublesome classmates was very inspiring because I always wondered how was she able to keep her composure so well. Her teaching methods worked and she always taught in a manner in which you would have no choice but to learn

Erin is an excellent instructor. She is very knowledgeable, very generous with that knowledge, very attentive, and encouraging. She is not only good at what she does but she is also very good at teaching. If you're unsure when picking an instructor here, you couldn't go wrong with Erin.
Genevieve
She is great, just great. 1st course yet she immediately helped me understand what were the real issues and how to tackle them. Now I feel confident to pass in front of an audience, because I know I will be heard and I will be understood!
Tyler
I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!

Not only that, but he even teaches his classmates the techniques he has learned with Colin. Very impressed with our son’s progress. Thank you Colin!"
