An incredible human who can teach you to be your own wonderful beautiful self in acting/auditions/callbacks/[insert Room here]. I've learned so much about acting and about myself by being in his classes. Just do it! Claudette Santiago, Professional Actor, San Diego
Jeffrey Ingman is a profound, kind, generous and heartful human being who breaks down the craft, and auditioning in particular, to a freeing and emotionally released process. This allows the actor to create and dance text from a place of presence. He is rigorous and also invigorating, freeing, and inspiring. He cares deeply about the artform and the actor's spirit; I do not doubt that learning how to deal with high pressure situations like cold reads will feel empowering and simpler with Jeffrey's expertise. Tri Le, MFA Candidate at Columbia University.
Words cannot describe the level of mastery Jeffrey Ingman displays as a teacher, actor, and coach. He meets you where ever you are and pushes you to grow and act organically and freely in whatever material you are given. He works with you to find yourself in the material. I have grown so much as an actor working with him and I am so grateful. Cody Ingram, MCIT Graduate and Professional Actor.
Jeffrey is amazing. His coaching has transformed my auditions. I learned techniques that can be immediately applied, whether given a scene the night before or in the audition room. I never have felt more confident in my work or connected to my scene partner. Christine Hewitt Professional Actor, San Diego
"Going into an audition was one of the hardest things for me as an actor. I felt out of my comfort zone and lacked confidence. So I just didn't audition. Meeting Jeffrey and getting the extreme privilege of working with him, opened so many doors for me this year. It is because of his belief and passion and his Revolutionary process that I was so successful at the 2017 URTAS. I went from a girl who never auditioned to a woman who flew across the country twice to share myself with prospective schools by myself. I am now a part of the Class of 2020 at the New School in New York. His process is challenging but simple in all the best ways. You will walk away with a new found confidence and understanding of yourself. It's therapeutic in a way. I could wax on for hours but you will absolutely not regret meeting Jeffrey Ingman and working with him. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT." Olivia Battle, MFA Graduate, New School
Jeffrey changed my life. He made me look at acting and the audition process in a whole new way, in a way I would have never thought of on my own. In just our first session he revealed insights to me that were total game changers and shattered my world view. Thanks Jeff! Cory Hibbs, Professional Actor NYC & LA
If you want to get better at your craft, be a pro in auditions from the moment your walk in... you need to work with Jeffery. Simply put he gets it and can get it in to you. He knows how to transfer his wisdom. That is priceless! Plus he is just about the nicest most professional person you will meet out there. Bridgette Young, Parent of Client
Jeffrey's passion is infectious and inspiring. His relentless attention to each moment is a testament to his drive for truth and authenticity in the work. His standards are high and he expects the same of every student. He is warm, compassionate, and it's as if sees through the soul of each actor he works with.
More than any of this, he has taught me authenticity: the importance of working simply, truthfully, and with intention. I don't have words to express how important this has been. He's a remarkable and life- changing teacher. Jeffrey's approach to auditioning is fresh, innovative, clear, and, above all, puts the actor back in control of the room. Amazing! Dre Sleman, MFA Professional Actress Portland, Oregon
"Jeffrey is an amazing coach. He is really passionate and knows what he is doing. My oldest daughter went with him, and took the audition package, and she learned so much. Before, she was very insecure and judgemental about herself when she was doing auditions, and after she took the classes with Jeffrey, she became very confident and possitive, understading the audition process much better, and she learned to control her stress and anxiety really well before and during the auditions. She always says that Jeffrey is the best!!! I also took my youngest daughter to be prepare for an agent panel audition, and with really short notice, Jeffrey prepared her the best he could, due to the little time she had before the audition, and she did really good. We highly recommend Jeffrey!" Dinee Cadet, Mother
Jeffrey is truly an amazing teacher! He is not only a talented coach, but he is personally invested in your success and growth. His careful and passionate guidance completely changed my view of auditioning. I used to be extremely uncomfortable in an audition the process. This made it extremely difficult for me to connect with the auditioners as human beings and equally difficult to live truthfully in my audition material. Jeffrey helped me to completely rethink the whole process and to enter a room with confidence and, most importantly, an open heart. Simply put, I would not have been accepted into the school I am currently attending without him. I cannot recommend him enough! Johnny Rice, Graduate of the American Conservatory Theatre, Professional Actor Training Program.
Jeffrey has a passion and skill that is markedly different from what you will find in most class room situations. The tenacity he has, combined with a humane sense of honesty about the work, makes him a great mentor. His audition technique takes away the mysticism involved when you're in the room, and it turns it into something more in line with how we act with others. Jeff does what a good acting coach should do--he reminds you of your own power." Bruce McGlumphy, Teacher, Professional Actor
I am a high school Theatre Director in Tucson, AZ. When I had the opportunity to bring in a guest artist to work with my students, there was no question that it would be Jeffrey Ingman. He and I go back many years, and as an actor, I have never had a better teacher. He knows how to immediately help the actor get to the heart of the work and find their truth within it. I also want to stress that his methods are never abusive or about humiliation, as you sometimes find in this business; rather, he helps the actor feel strong enough to trust themselves, find their truth within the text and bring it out in the most immediate, truthful, and human way possible. Finally, his Packaged Audition concept is revolutionary and amazing to watch take shape with actors. He's been to visit my students twice in the last six months, and we will absolutely be bringing him back again. Thank you, Jeffrey Art Almquist, Tuscon High School
"I run the theatre program at CSU San Marcos and we are so thankful that Jeffrey works with our students to help them prepare for graduate school auditions! Jeffrey's approach to audition technique is thoughtfully designed and incredibly effective! We have really talented and hard working students in our program, but they need an outside eye to direct them to the next level of preparation. Jeffrey's passion, practical mentorship and comprehensive system (from how to chose a monologue, to the details of how you enter the audition room) help them put an audition package together that gets results." Chair and Professor Judy Bauerlein, CSU San Marcos
"Audition Coach founder Jeff Ingman is the most honest, passionate, and qualified acting teacher you'll find. A proven actor / writer / director, he truly understands the work of an artist. He provides an environment nurturing enough to make you feel completely safe to explore, but challenging enough to push for improvement. He's never afraid to hold you to the highest standard - the standard of a pro. If you're ready to book work in this industry, you need to get in touch with Audition Coach."
Eric Stoneking, Teacher
"Jeffrey Ingman is the definition of a passionate, dedicated, understanding, and hardworking mentor. He always works to find the truth in an actor and always brings the best out of you. I have been blessed with having him as a coach/mentor. He helped me go through a tough time of not having theatre in my life, to getting accepted to more than 4 theatre schools for their B.F.A and B.A programs. If you are willing to work as hard as he is for you, you will go far with his coaching ways, my friend! I definitely recommend him if you want grow tremendously as an actor, storyteller and human being!" Caliope Marin, Actor UCLA
Auditioning has been one of my biggest challenges as an actor. I struggled with really being authentic and specific and went into an "automatic robot" mode when auditioning which made it impossible to see who I really am and made me an "actor" instead of human. Jeffrey is absolutely extraordinary in showing me how to connect the words with my body which helps me find those moments of truth. He is hands down the best audition coach in town. He is supportive, insightful and encouraging and is helping me to get out of my head when auditioning so I can truly shine. Thank you Jeffrey, it is a pleasure to work with you always!!!!

"Just work with Jeffrey. I book more than ever now that I have Jeffrey's techniques in my back pocket. I am the self-proclaimed "worst commercial actor", but I'm booking in the commercial industry WAY more than I used to because of his techniques. What you learn is nearly universal across all audition rooms. He teaches you HOW to use your anxiety and fear that infiltrates you the moment before you walk into the room - TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. I've never been more confident walking into the room."
Eric Casalini, Professional Actor
I am from a small town in Iowa, but I traveled to Missoula, Montana for the summer to participate in a performing arts camp. Jeffrey came on the last week of the camp, and I couldn't imagine ending it any better. There were so many things in the auditioning world I would have never expected. I will definitely take what I learned and put it into practice next time I audition - specifically remembering to "just be a human". Thank you for teaching me!" Mariah Elser, Actor Next Step, MCT
I went to Next Step Prep and Mr. Ingman came in to teach a big group of us and I learned so much. I leaned about a package audition and how to actually go into an audition room. I feel so happy to have been able to learn about my mistakes early on instead of going into a real audition, clueless. I also love how knowledgeable he is and how he can help us with finding the colleges for us. He was absolutely amazing and I wish I could have more time with him. Shannon Hughey-McNair High School Theatre Student
One of the most honest and emotionally connected people I know. Not only a coach for acting, but for life. Highly recommended. Ryan Mitchell, Graduate University of the Pacific
