"Jim Bray cares about his students, knows what he’s talking about and continues to offer new insights to material."
"Jim is one of the best, if not the best, teacher in any course that I’ve ever had. His ability to make difficult concepts palatable, while challenging us beyond things we thought we were capable of producing, is insane."
"My classmates and I have crossed thresholds within our selves and our craft, that I don’t think we even knew were there. The things we learned
in this class will set us up for optimal success in many acting techniques, many of which
Jim is proficient in ."
"Since working with Jim, I have not only become a better actor, but a better person."
"He is constantly encouraging and pushing students to do their best. It's a brave space for you to step out of your comfort zone and know that you will be okay. I don't know if I would have continued my theatre career if it weren't for Jim's encouragement."
"Everything about this course changed my life and my knowledge about theatre. This acting approach is truly helpful and honest, my acting has improved greatly and I wish to continue with this training next year."
"Professor Bray did an amazing job at showing his skills and how passionate he is about this subject. Especially how loving and understanding he is with his students."
"Professor Bray’s teaching was kind and affirming, while also being disciplined. He kept the attention of the whole class while also providing individualized instruction to each student.
He was skilled in leading the physical work – guiding and prompting students to explore their characters further. He asked insightful questions and allowed space for student responses in the discussion after the physical work."
"In the short time we’ve had him, Jim Bray has turned my life in the right direction. I now have a clearer idea of what kind of artist I want to be, and what kind of life I want to lead. Words can’t describe the gratitude I have for this teacher."
