What is an Acting Track?
"Bob provided a safe environment where I felt free to be myself and take risks as an actor. Bob is the best!"
— Julia Udine Christine in Phantom of the Opera
"He's helped me gain confidence and skills in an audition that no other teacher has given me before or since."
"Bob pulls away the curtain of the elusive audition. He crafts clear and simple ways to attack each scene with efficiency and depth. Not only will you have tools to better understand the script in front of you, but will build through your own authenticity, the work that only you can create. It was a blessing to find a teacher so dedicated and simplified in their approach. He pushes an actor toward the utmost truth, and will enlighten the inner life that every actor brings to the table. His experience as an actor within the workforce is wisdom and knowledge, priceless to any actor. Any person looking to understand the craft will walk out of his class much richer in depth."
— Matthew Ballinger, The Deuce, Limitless, Girls.
