Here are some of the testimonials we gathered from his students:

" Every human beings are talented in their own way, its just a matter of discovering their own talent and make full use of it. Being an actor is not only about passion but is a skill that requires upgrading of acting skills regularly, never stop learning.... CKay (Actor/Drama Trainer)

I do always agree with Bob Fraser, my mentor on what he always say,

" The path to success in our business is not a "secret." There are real solutions to acting career problems. And, no, it's not about having the right agent, the right manager, the right acting teacher, or networking like an insurance salesman. What I discovered early in my own career is that the real key to eliminating your 'struggling actor' syndrome – and starting up the ladder of success – is simply this: Persistently taking effective action on good information. "

" One thing I enjoy learning the most about is the constant insights about the acting industry from CKay. How the present outlook of the general industry is like. The demands of a full-time professional actor and important things to avoid and pay attention to in the industry, like pointers during auditions, and the challenges actors face in the field. Having been involved in drama since secondary school, I've always felt that interpreting and understanding characters was one of my weaker points, and it is something that I've learnt more about in this course, trying to understand more about the character by studying the script. I also have a better appreciation of the interaction between actor and environment through the constant reminders of the presence of 'this' and 'that' during various activities."

---------------------------------------------------

" more aware of space and surroundings, learnt to use my voice and tone to convey a meaning instead of using words and actions, more confident in taking on different roles, dare to step out more of my comfort zone and not do stereotypical actions"

---------------------------------------------------

" I have learned the different techniques and skills involved in acting, how the industry works, before I was still quite reserved, am now slightly more confident and More than just a passion. I feel its something that is very much me - like I was made for acting and it allows me to release my true self"

---------------------------------------------------

" I have learned the ins and outs of local showbiz scene which is helpful when I become a working artist. As well as building different array of characters that are different and even far away from my own character.

Before, I felt my acting was too unnatural. I felt like my acting was more like imitating bits and pieces of other characters without something that connects them together as a full person that reacts to a situation that they are in. I felt like I was more like doing cheesy acting that actual acting."
