Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Private Method Acting Teacher

My professional background and experience includes acting (stage & screen), directing, and playwriting. As a result, I often include aspects of each discipline in my work with Actors (including teacher development training sessions).
I present students of all ages with creative challenges within the scope of select (Spolin/Stanislavski-based) theater exercises and games, later providing them with more advanced opportunities to incorporate the related skills into their scene-study work.

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.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

We were a perfect match. I felt comfortable and she got the best out of me. Very relaxed and honest.
Tivia Lynnell
I for sure found Coach Alicia to be a knowledgeable actor, skilled as a teacher and more precisely as a voice-over coach. What takes Coach Alicia to another level is her personality, she’s engaging and warm even when telling you nope, that wasn’t it, your delivery wasn’t authentic or true to the character or the script. I became comfortable with her fairly quickly. She made our voice-over sessions feel like we were physically in the same space and not having class online. I so loved our improv time during our sessions and it’s so vital in voiceover work. I had a great time coach, thanks for helping me grow even further and for helping me discover where my weakness are so I can improve upon them and eventually eliminate them altogether.
Zahraa
Alicia is a wonderful person beside she is very professional in her work. She puts all of her heart in her work. I find her the best in acting coaching, voice acting, accent coach and great therapist. She helped me with managing my time. She is a very supportive person and basically mangling my mind. And I am looking forward to work with her in a long period.

"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!"
