“My experience taking Terry’s commercial class was life changing for my acting career. The way I broke down copy and delivered it to camera will be forever changed thanks for the training I received from Terry. I learned commercial pace, what works for me on camera and what doesn’t work for me, and also learned how to add my own unique style to all commercial copy. I am tremendously grateful for Terry because of her guidance and teachings.”
