I am very comfortable with Donna. She is very knowledgeable of her talents to teach her students. The 10 lessons I paid for will be all the lessons I need. I wanted to do this to get the basics I need. I will not be signing up for more lessons so please do not charge my credit card for future lessons. I will need conformation from you and a guarantee that my card will not be charged. ASAP
Thank you so much. Nancy Richard

Acting is all about experiencing what life has to offer. With decades of experience acting in professional and informal roles, I have so much experience to draw upon to help you find what works for you and your dreams of acting. Each of us has different talents, strengths and weaknesses, and all of our qualities can be utilized to explore the multifaceted art of acting. I can help you see and better understand what you bring to the table so that we can hone your skills, focus your attention and intention, and even figure out how to turn any weaknesses into powerful crafting tools.

My background in Psychology gives me excellent insight into the rich playground of character development and the ability to help you find the characters within you, even the ones you never would have imagined you could be. I have the gift for making the path of learning to act a seriously playful journey that can help you reach your goal, whether they are to entertain, inform, enrich, or just

Darren is an incredible acting Coach. I couldn’t recommend him higher. He goes so above and beyond with his time, his care and investment in you as an actor, his amazing guidance and how to truly delve deep into a character and a scene. Before I started taking with him, I was ok as an actor. Once I started working with him, I started getting callbacks and booking jobs and really started to grow and reach my full potential as an actor and I began to feel very confident about my abilities. If you take lessons with him, you will be so happy you did!!
jb
It was such a pleasure to have my daughter working with Darren. He instilled confidence in her, taught her how to prepare herself to be an actor, and provided her with opportunities to show off her craft. THANK YOU! Darren for your time, help and support of our budding angel!! You are The Best.
Steven
I initially started with Darren in Orlando in 1990. Being a talent manager I wanted to understand acting better to better help my clients needs. After a few lessons I had learned so much that I required my entire client stable of about 25 people to take his class. He had to add an additional night to handle my people. In a couple weeks I saw incredible growth. In a few months I had the best acting stable in Orlando. My people were working.

Darren is one of the most talented actors and teachers I’ve ever come across. But he’s not the coach for someone who takes it lightly. He’ll work your butt off.

Lynzi is amazing! She's patient and tailors each lesson to your individual need. She is very professional, but welcoming at the same time. We would highly recommend Lynzi.
Rafael C.
Lynzi is very knowledgable with vocal training and an excellent singer as well. I explained issues with my voice and she gave great tips to help strengthen my singing. The main thing is that she listened to my needs and heard what was going on with me vocally. I already hear a difference with my singing after one lesson and doing what she told me to do. That’s what makes Lynzi a great instructor.
