I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

I began acting at the age of 4 where I worked on high-level projects such as Dark Water, Alien vs. Predator – Requiem, and ABC’s Invasion. While working on these projects, I was able to participate in the film production process and work with distinguished creative professionals. I developed my skills in the performing arts through years of training in audition practices, cold readings, improvisation, and voice-over. I also took acting classes at UCSD renowned Theater & Dance Department where I developed my skills for working in a theatrical setting.

I think she is a great teacher. I have learned a lot in her class. She delivers the information well and is understanding of student needs. I think she makes acting an enjoyable process. There will be decent amount of work in her class but work that makes sense to shape your future in the field. I highly recommend her.
Johenfy
Professor Duarte is amazing at her craft. She has years of experience and will help you find and develop your own craft. Her courses are a must for both beginners and advanced users.
Jesse
I had Cristina for a fifteen-week-long Auditions Technique class and I learned so much from her. I'm a fairly confident actor but for most of my life I've been terrible at auditions and after taking this class I've improved tenfold. We are going through unprecedented times right now and Cristina made our class's transition from in person to online completely seamless, which I appreciate and commend her for.

Boleslavsky and Strasburg techniques combined with British Classical School. -as the result of my own training. We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.

Great first lesson with Gina!

I love how she works with me and I feel like I can relax into learning because of her personality. I don’t feel pressured or anxious which is really helpful.

After 3 years of a extremely bad brake up with musical theatre. It was really nice to be back at it and Carolyn made me feel comfortable enough to actually take my first dance lesson in 4 years.
Paul H.
i have been working with Carolyn for the past couple of years and she is excellent. Clearly very skilled and a very experienced teacher. Very patient as well, especially when I have not had much time to practice. She totally understands I have work commitments that take priority.
I enjoy every lesson and I am so pleased that I can pick up music scores and play with confidence. I thoroughly enjoy each class.

"I always try and surround myself with people who give me confidence and make me better. Kathryn does both of those. She doesn't view you as a dollar sign but as an artist. She's the coach that sends you "Happy Birthday" and "Get Well Soon" texts because she genuinely cares.

I've been with her for over a year already and have no plans of stopping. Thank you so much, Kathryn. :)"

"David has really helped my auditions. I have booked two jobs since coaching with him. He takes me back to the basics, forces me to let go of my ego, and doesn't allow me to use any of my actor "tricks." Consequently my auditions are resonating in a new and effective way. As of right now, he is absolutely essential when I have an appointment. I emphatically recommend him for coaching."
