Title: A Transformative Journey at Zak Barnett Studios Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Our family has been part of the Zak Barnett Studios (ZBS) family for approximately three months now, and the experience has been nothing short of amazing, particularly for our daughter. Under the expert guidance of coaches Kym Priess and JC Brandy during Saturday sessions, our daughter Reese has not only honed her acting skills but has also secured a significant role in Denver—a testament to the effectiveness of the training at ZBS. One of the standout aspects of the studio is the genuine care and commitment demonstrated by Kym and JC. Their coaching goes beyond mere instruction; they help students, including our daughter, tap into genuine emotions and develop a profound understanding of character portrayal. The growth we've witnessed in Reese's confidence and acting abilities is truly remarkable. Zak Barnett Studios doesn't just focus on the aspiring actors but extends its support to parents navigating the intricacies of the industry. The classes for parents have been invaluable, providing guidance and insight that has been beneficial for me as a parent with a child in the acting world. Choosing the right acting studio is crucial for anyone looking to pursue a career in the field, and ZBS came highly recommended by our daughter's manager. After just three months, we can confidently attest to the studio's reputation. The decision to enroll has proven to be one of the best choices we've made for Reese's budding career. Before committing, we had the opportunity to connect with Zak himself, who was not only welcoming but also took the time to address all our questions and concerns. This personal touch, combined with the positive and nurturing environment within the studio, creates an atmosphere conducive to growth for individuals of all ages. In conclusion, if you or your child is passionate about acting and looking for a studio that offers exceptional coaching, a supportive community, and a positive learning environment, Zak Barnett Studios is the place to be. Don't hesitate—sign up and embark on a transformative journey in the world of acting.

My son started taking classes with ZBS approximately 6 weeks ago. I have noticed great improvement in his acting ability even in this short period of time. He is engaged in class, even online. The hybrid option is great since we live in the San Diego area. Thank you ZBS!

ZBS is awesome! My daughter is new to acting but has always felt welcomed and encouraged at ZBS. The classes are fun, engaging, and effective. She always looks forward to her next class because she knows it’s a safe space where she can practice her craft in a positive environment. Her teacher is wonderful and the students treat each other with respect and encouragement. It is truly a wonderful program! I would highly recommend it for any actor at any stage of their career.

Zak Barnett Studios has allowed me to be able to experience acting in the best way. I learn something new everyday. I am surrounded by many talented teachers who help me achieve my goals everyday when it comes to acting and outside of that. The progress I’ve made within months is incredible. I encourage every student to put in the work in and out of class and be as dedicated to your craft as possible.

I cannot imagine stepping into the wild world of Hollywood without the buoying community and comprehensive education at Zak Barnett Studios. My skills, confidence, and sense of belonging have grown exponentially since joining ZBS and it is a joy to be constantly learning from such a gifted, supportive, and varied faculty. Try all they have to offer and be challenged in the best ways -- the genre-based Core class, deep dives and mock producer sessions in Immersive, hilarious explorations in Whole-Self Improv, honing audition technique in Actor's Process, and elevating technique in Advanced On-Camera. Give yourself (and your agent!) the gift of the ZBS experience!

First off I would like to say the community and environment here at ZBS is extremely welcoming, from the teachers to your fellow classmates, everyone has been so kind and supportive, truly a place where you are free to be vulnerable, and share your emotions and experiences at a deep level. I haven’t had personal experiences with every teacher but from the handful I’ve had the pleasure of conversing and working with they are substantial, professional, and they really give solid non biased criticism from a positive perspective. From my experience here no doubt do they pin point your strengths and weakness and inevitably guide you to hit your goals. I highly recommend for many different levels of actors/ artists!🤙🏽
