What Some Students are Saying

Jeff’s class was a revelation. I fell in love with auditioning and learned how to own my uniqueness. He built on what a knew and honed in on my weaknesses. He gave me the steps to solve the equation. Now I have had multiple callbacks and avails – and booked a national spot. Thank you.

I cannot recommend Jeff’s commercial class highly enough. It’s the most informative class I have taken in a long time. From improv exercises to extensive commercial copy, he really gives you the confidence to know exactly what to do in the room.

Lauren Reeder 9/4/16

This is a ‘great’ on-camera commercial acting class and one I highly recommend to all actors wanting to excel at booking commercials. Taught by a working casting director who knows what works and what doesn’t to get a callback and book a job, Jeff graciously and caringly shares invaluable industry tips and insights, with humor and straight forward honesty. This is one acting class definitely worth taking.
