Jeff taught me how to ask the right questions when approaching the work; he teaches not only what to do, but how to do it. Whether you want to act in film, television, theatre (including Shakespeare), or even voice work, Jeff is a fantastic resource. Jeff is a kind and genuine human being who will keep your best interests at heart. He wants to push you to your full potential as an actor. Will you become vulnerable? Yes. Will you become authentic? Definitely. Both elements are required for true, real, believable acting, and Jeff will bring them out in you.” – Caleb Kneip

Jeff’s knowledge and wealth of experience is enlightening and the process gets results! I will feel so much more confident with my choices at my next audition knowing I have ‘done my homework’. I look forward to learning as much as I can from Jeff.” – Jodi Haigh

“As an acting coach/teacher Jeffrey has a wealth of knowledge from his vast experience and education in film, television, and theater. He generously shares this information with his students helping them improve as actors and become empowered as individuals. He is fully invested in the growth and development of his students. He demonstrates this by acclimating to each student’s specific needs with a sensitivity that allows students to be comfortable to explore their talents. Most impressively, Jeffrey has an ability to connect with all his students, regardless of what level of experience they have, where they come from, or who they are culturally/ethnically, he is able to provide the same valuable guidance to all that follow his teachings. Jeffrey’s is also incredibly passionate about the art of acting and is able to inspire his students to discover their most authentic selves. Through his teaching he has been able to obtain a loyal and committed group of students that is growing in each location that he teaches in.” – Beth Shepard

“At the tender age of 59, I finally said to myself….you’re an actor. Signed up for a class with Jeff with no real ideas of what to expect. And oh….I had no idea of the treasure I would find. Yes, my passion has been opened! Yes my soul can never again be contained….for it now soars! I’ve been under Jeff’s tutelage for approx 9 months, meeting once a week. I am continuously amazed by Jeff’s level of knowledge and mastery of his craft. And something totally unexpected….. The sense of comradery…all of my fellow acting students so support one another, from day one; we have become a family. Thank you, my friend.” – Scott Puckett

 “Joining Jeffrey Meek’s acting class was truly one of the best decisions I could have made in regards to coaching. There are so many acting coaches out there that offer different teaching styles and information regarding how to take on the industry. So it can be really tough to find someone who you fit with. Jeffrey really knows how to help make you feel relaxed while getting you out of your comfort zone. That is already a very tough task to do, especially in front of a class. But, the friendly environment Jeffrey creates for his students makes the daunting task of being vulnerable on stage, a much more pleasant learning experience that makes you feel more empowered to take on any scene/monologue. He has taught me that it is ok to fail in a class setting, for those failures will ultimately lead to great realizations. I have been working with Jeffrey for over a year now, and he ultimately has become much more than just an acting teacher. I have created a great friendship. The personal bond he creates with you really helps in assisting with whatever struggles or difficulties you are having with your craft. We are all different, and we all have our own styles of telling stories. Jeffrey understands that, and will direct you in whichever way necessary in order to lead you to your most authentic self. If you truly feel acting is your passion and really want to push yourself to that next level, I would definitely recommend Mr. Jeffrey Meek. You will not regret your time.” – Manny Unzueta
