Here’s what former San Francisco Acting Academy students have to say about SFAA!

"Great class last night , Paul.  I enjoyed it and learned quite a bit.
I want to thank you for your very generous support, encouragement and advice."
A. Malberg/ Session Director's Guide To On Camera Auditioning with Paul Ghiringhelli

"I just finished up the On-Camera Comfort class with Deb Fink. The only complaint I would have...is that I never wanted it to end!! I could definitely tell that Deb knew what she was doing. She had loads of advice for the class, both in general and specifically for each student.
I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in acting on camera"
D. Campfield/ Comfort On Camera with Deb Fink

"Zoe is an inspiring instructor who demonstrates real passion for the work and interest in her students. She makes the learning enjoyable and helps her students achieve results based on each person's particular needs.<\em>"
John Scacco/ On Camera Improv Workout with Zoe Galvez

"My ears have definitely opened up after this class! Thank you and thanks Mary!"
C. Ku/ Finding Your Money Voice with Mary Windishar

"I just returned from LA and I wanted to thank you for such an informative and helpful class. It had been awhile since I had taken an on-camera class and I'm so grateful that it was with you. You reminded me to never be satisfied, to be a perfectionist, and that hard work will show in an audition if I put in the necessary time. I hope to take another class with you in the future!"
A. Papalexopoulos / Up On Your Feet with Stan Roth

"I am still in the early stages of my training, and I found Michael adapted his teaching style to match the level of experience for each actor in the class. His method of teaching and imparting information is very personable, precise, instinctive, and informative. I felt I was given great foundational tools to continue with this craft and I look forward to taking another class with him"
P.Deery / Acting In Films with Michael Navarra

"She inspires, creates, and helps students find their place in this industry. Excellent."
Andrew B /Intro To Voice Over with Laurie Burke

"It was a truly great class last night. I enjoyed it and learned many helpful tips out of it. Once again, thanks for your wonderful, fun and productive class!"
R.Shandize / Session Director's Guide To On Camera Auditioning with Paul Ghiringhelli

"One of the Best classes I have taken. I learned so much that I took the class again, and I learned even more. Michael is a fantastic teacher and has an easy going style that made everyone feel comfortable. This class will give you new tools, and sharpen the ones you already have. A Big thumbs up to SFAA and Michael Navarra!"
B.Johnson / Acting In Films with Michael Navarra

I just took Deb Fink's "Comfort on Camera" class and must say it was so valuable to me.  Just the energy she brings to the class is inspiring!  And the information is so helpful.  I intend to take more classes with her.  Thanks for a great experience!
J.Rades / Comfort On Camera with Deb Fink

"Thank you for offering Cold Reading & Scene Study class

I thoroughly enjoyed your class and will use the insights, experience, and lessons throughout my career

I will/would highly recommend your classes to fellow actors, and look forward to continue your class."
W. Lott / Up On Your Feet with Stan Roth

"Mary Windishar's class "Finding your Money Voice" was incredibly helpful and informative. I had never done voiceover work before, but Mary's instruction made the material attainable while still challenging. She created a classroom environment that was safe, which allowed her to provide constant constructive feedback to each student individually. My only regret is that the class wasn't longer".
C. Legge / Finding Your Money Voice with Mary Windishar

"Zoe's class teaches you essential skills that seriously improve your audition abilities. Improv helps you hone your abilities so you can give 100% of yourself to a moment and be open to changes."
S. Patel / On Camera Improv Workout with Zoe Galvez

It was a great pleasure and privilege to attend your class and I'm looking forward to the next installment"
