Brendan is an excellent instructor who has the experience and knowledge to teach fellow actors unique and personal characters. He knows exactly how to breakdown scenes and monologues to create grounded and real work. I highly recommend him!

I am a senior manager at massive Workforce Management software company and I have been searching for ways to climb the corporate ladder. Taking acting lessons with Brendan has dramatically improved my confidence and public speaking abilities. Well worth the $. Investing in myself has truly been worth it.

I was looking for a teacher & a friend of mine recommended Brendan's classes so I decided to contact him. Great decision! He really knows his stuff. He's helped me to understand the characters & scripts better. I'm much more confident since I started with him.

Brendan really knows his stuff. He made me feel comfortable and confident. From the first class to where I am now - I could not have done it without him.

As somewhat of a beginner (and older student) I certainly needed a lot of work! Finding someone who was knowledgeable, experienced & patient was key for me. Brendan is all of that & more in every aspect of acting! He's very patient with me and presents his lessons in a fun yet thorough & easy to understand way. Taking professional acting classes is something I've wanted to do for a long time so I'm glad I made the right choice & connected with Brendan.

Brendan was the best teacher I have ever had! He is super knowledgeable and so nice. I was new to acting and with his 10+ years of experience and his degree from the New York Film Academy I learned so much from him. He also made me feel very comfortable and not nervous at all! I highly recommend Brendan! best teacher I have ever worked with!
