"Thanks for a really helpful class. Yours was the first one that I had ever taken (though I’ve been a radio personality for years), and from the sound of the students who had taken many other classes, I obviously hit quite a jackpot with you! I look forward to more."
– Harry Legg
"I want you to know that I learned SOOOO much from your class! I had my first commercial audition the other day, and was so glad that I was prepared because of the tools I learned from you. In fact, only six people got callbacks, and I was one of them!! Not bad for my first one!! Thank you so very much, Marc!!!"
– Aliki Theofilopoulos
