    Barry is like an Actor’s genie, only I didn’t have to vocalize my wishes. He instinctively knew what I needed. He took a nontraditional approach and really mixed things up for me and that was what I needed to get out of my head. I appreciate his open and relaxed atmosphere — it allows for the actor to be open and relaxed (which is crucial). It’s obvious Barry knows his stuff, but he does not do things from the obvious vantage point... Barry can see beyond the obvious and help connect you with the character’s simplest human motivation. I’m grateful. He brought the fun back for me. Magical!!!

    Barry is an excellent teacher. I've had previous coaches that were very intimidating which in the world of acting makes things VERY difficult. Luckily, Barry is a very kind and down to earth man. However, he isn't so kind that he just praises you no matter what. Barry is very honest in his critiques and gives clear instructions when needed. His prices for lessons are also fantastic! I've only taken a few lessons with Barry so far, but I have learned so much already and am always eagerly looking forward to our next lesson together!
