Ransford obviously cares about the craft and is dedicated to his students. He has helped me more in one lesson than any other acting class I have ever had. 10/10 Will be booking again!

Mr. Ransford was truly a great find! I've been getting professional acting training for the past year and was constantly struggling with trying to understand how to become more "natural" and "believable" with my acting. I felt like I made no progress after taking private coaching + 2 acting group classes and questioned if I reached my peak. However, after taking a 1 on 1 lesson with Mr. Ransford, I finally understand now how to accomplish this and he made it so simple to understand! I feel more confident now moving forward with my acting to keep making progress and do not feel stuck anymore! Take a session with him, you will not regret it, especially if you're new to acting!Also, as someone who suffers from anxiety and possibly other stuff, Mr. Ransford definitely provides a safe space for you to succeed! Can't wait to take more lessons and update again at a later time When I'm accomplishing even more greatness in my career! =)

I have a better insight into acting now and would highly recommend to take this class, especially if you want to pursue a serious career in this field.

I felt very comfortable with Mr. Doherty. He was very uplifting and fun. Very encouraging, and at time he would test me a bit to see if I was paying attention, to make sure I was understanding. If he gets to read this, thank you so much Mr. Doherty. And continuing blessings to you in your success in the business!
