Kent Jackman is a very good teacher, I was definitely able to see improvements in myself just after the first few lessons! If you need acting lessons he’s definitely the way to go, I’ve never had lessons before but he was able get more in depth with what I know while also adding on to it. Definitely recommend.

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.

I was honored to have been guided by Kent J. during a historic presentation in honor of Malcolm X in Las Vegas. His patient and motivating spirit makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and look forward to the opportunity to be under his leadership once again. Because of Mr. J, I have decided to seek additional acting training for my own career.
