When I discovered the Meisner Technique I feel like I finally became an actor. And when I finished my training I felt like I had become an acting ninja.

Jim Jarrett is as rare a man as you will find in our profession and our art form. As a teacher he is pure authenticity. His fidelity and reverence to Sanford Meisner is unparalleled by anyone teaching Mr. Meisner's approach to acting. Period. Without exception.

Within two months of completing the business class, I've booked 3 speaking roles; 2 TV pilots (one for NBC) and an independent film. Lucky? Yes, partially. But I pursued this on my own for 5+ years when I was younger and more "marketable," and never booked this much.

Jim’s inspiration and creativity are endless. His passion for teaching is unmatched. He is sensitive and understanding of the fact that each student learns differently. As Sanford Meisner would say, each actor has their own unique “instrument.” And Jim would be able to cater his teachings uniquely to each student’s needs.
