I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed being part of the acting studio this term and working with the group, who are all fantastic and I'm indebted to you for the time, experience, wisdom and knowledge you've imparted which has been both an invaluable refresher and, more importantly, an opportunity to learn many new things.
Thank you for being there, guiding and teaching us. I absolutely love everything about the course and what we do in class. I believe we all get better every time.
Adam is the best teacher I've ever had for acting. I have learnt so much in two terms.
Adam has been the best acting coach! He's open and attentive and really pushes you out of your comfort zone. He mentored me through my first live showcase and helped me set the foundation I use to approach character development. I'm 2 months from my first lead role and am using the principles he taught me. I would recommend him to everyone!
