"Aaron is a deeply intuitive teacher. In addition to being well-versed in the traditional schools of thought on the craft of acting, he is also skilled at tailoring his technique to the individual, encouraging strengths, navigating shortcomings, and creating space for you to find your own way. It's never generic or generalized teaching. His long career as a professional actor is evident in his understanding of the actor's experience, and his teaching is practical and applicable at any level. His classes are also genuinely engaging and fun–he encourages you to take the craft seriously, and yourself less seriously, and creates an environment where you can really try things, fail, learn, and grow. I left his class feeling like I was falling back in love with acting again, and with the practical tools to move forward confidently and continue working and growing as an actor."
