“….there’s still not a day that goes by where I don’t think about this studio…”

 

Years later, there’s still not a day that goes by where I don’t think about this studio. Absolutely life-changing. I not only became a better actor, but I became a better person.

“I finally feel like I’m being equipped with what I need to pursue acting on a bigger level….”

 

I met Terry through a friend of mine and it has been the best decision I’ve ever made to attend his Two-Year Conservatory. Not only is this class opening up doors for me that I didn’t know were closed, but I’ve never experienced an acting class that provides the building blocks necessary to begin an extraordinary acting career. I finally feel like I’m being equipped with what I need to pursue acting on a bigger level, AND I’m only 4 months in. I feel freer, more honest, able to answer truthfully to my partner. This class also has helped me improve in my personal life as well. If you are the type of person that hides from the truth, this class is not for you. But if you are hungry for excellence and constant progress, then the Terry Knickerbocker Studio is definitely for you.

“I’ve never felt so connected to who I am, and who I am becoming….”

 

The growth and profound self-exploration experienced through taking this journey with Terry is unparalleled; I’ve never felt so connected to who I am, and who I am becoming. It has opened my eyes, mind, and heart to the deepest aspects of my persona, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have found TKS. Not only is the work challenging and highly rewarding, the space created is a safe haven, which allows an openness to experiences that are free of judgement. The keen awareness that Terry and the faculty have of each student’s essence allows you to flourish both as an artist and human. If you’re looking for a comprehensive training that explores all facets of who you are mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually, you’ve come to the right place. This studio is everything.

“He is a library of knowledge on all things acting….”

 

I recently took Terry’s LA Master Class. What an amazing teacher this guy is!! He is a library of knowledge on all things acting. His approach and feedback are honest but gentle, he doesn’t rip actors apart, nor does he pat you on the back just to get your money. Most teachers will tell actors what they want to hear in order to keep them coming back; Terry is not one of those teachers. If you’re looking for an awesome class to give you some great tools to add to your repertoire, then I would highly suggest this class!

“This is life-changing training….”

 

This is life-changing training — both as an artist and human being. Unlike some graduate programs, Terry is interested in an individual’s quirks and nurtures your uniqueness. You come out of the program with both his standard of acting excellence and your individuality better understood by yourself and your colleagues. That kind of confidence to be “you” in the real world while knowing how to arrange yourself to serve character and a story is invaluable.
