I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!

Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.

Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed.

Great creative writing intro class if you're curious to character development and comedy! Great explanation/examples, encouraging, and includes practical exercises you can use immediately. Thanks Jeremy.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.

I've been in LA over 20 years. I graduated with a BA in Theater and Film from University of Southern California. I'm a member of SAG; having appeared across countless television series as co-star, guest-star, recurring, and series regular. I'm an award-winning actor and producer. I've had films at Sundance, Tribeca, Seattle Film Festival and many others. I starred in and produced CIRCLE, a film I sold to Netflix. Most recently, my series DARK/WEB premiered on Amazon Prime. We were also invited by San Diego Comic-Con to present an official panel to fans last summer. I have worked with most of the reputable acting coaches here in Los Angeles and have accumulated the styles and techniques I like best from each to synthesize my own approach. I am a graduate of the Groundlings School of Improv and Comedy.

As someone who has no experience in acting, Michael made learning the basics feel easy & intuitive. I learned so much in just a short amount of time thanks to Michael's guidance.
Abigail M.
Hi my name is Abby. I started taking classes because I want to make my own movie and star in it. I know for me to get to that goal I need to acquire the knowledge and skills of acting. Mr. Nardelli is teaching me the fundamentals of acting. To date, my range has thoroughly improved since day one. I can’t even believe my own progress. He pulls emotions from me and shows me how to use them through my acting which is amazing. Mr. Nardelli works with me for things that I need to improve and extracts things out of me that I didn’t even know I had. I truly enjoy the classes and wish I would have done them sooner.
Amy K.
I've always wanted to explore acting, but I honestly didn't know where to start! I wasn't looking to start a career as an actor, I just wanted to learn the basics. I had absolutely no experience whatsoever but I reached out to Michael and asked if he could teach me 'acting 101'. My experience working with Michael was absolutely amazing... he walked me through the beginner's steps and worked alongside me so I would be comfortable. He was very patient and used layman's terms to explain things for me to understand. I know Michael is an established actor and has been for a long time so, his meeting me at my level was so helpful and appreciated. I feel.... from working with him, I am ready to take my acting to the next level and for the first time in my life, I actually entertain the thought of it being a career choice for me.

"I absolutely love Kim's acting coaching!

I have been in financial business for many years. Recently, I took a project and need to adapt quickly to play a role in a film within very short time period. I am very lucky to find Kim:

(1) She is well prepared for each lesson. She understood clearly about my objectives;
(2) She gives me lots of valuable tips to improve my acting skills;
(3) She is very quick to grasp the film writer and director's intention for the role;
(4) She pays great attention to every detail of the script to help me to maximize my potential in the role;
(5) She goes above and beyond: she reviews my recording and gives me great feedback after the lesson; she went through multiple scripts within very short time period on her own time;
(6) She is extremely fun to work with;

I just finished my second lesson with Kim. She is not only a great acting coach, but a great actor! She is definitely a go to person in my future film venture!!!"
