“Brooke is an incredible teacher, coach, role model, mentor and friend. She helps my daughter to develop her character for auditions and encourages her to find her own voice. Even under time pressure for deadlines, Brooke is always there to support and encourage. She is truly a shining star who helps her students to develop their shining stars.”
“Brooke worked with my eight year old son who was new to acting. She was always so patient and nurturing during each session. Brooke connected with my son using humor and helped him perform at his best. I was always amazed by how Brooke was able to help him look at a scene in a new way and open his eyes to all the possibilities as an actor.”
“So you are looking for an acting coach for your child. Look no further than Brooke Turner at the Professional Performance Prep. She is outstanding! She is knowledgeable about the business and film/tv. She is not only a bright light of energy but she is so wise. She helps strengthen the work a student is being prepared for. When she first started teaching my granddaughter Kenley we did not know what to expect. Well let me tell you, it was so pleasant. Brooke takes the time to not only teach but to know the student. She finds out their interests, likes, dislikes, etc. Then we go from there. Brooke is an acting coach that loves acting and because of that she shows great enthusiasm which is infectious. She does not consider this a job because she truly loves all her students. She makes them better. She lets them express how they think a character should be played, and then goes from there. More importantly she is honest with the student, passionate about the work and most importantly she is rooting for that student to succeed. All in all you could not ask for a better acting coach than Brooke.”
“Going into The Prep I had no idea what to expect or much idea of what I should be doing. But because they have some of the most incredible coaches, like Brooke, I have been able to thrive and feel confident with my acting. Brooke helps you through the uncomfortable so you can bring your natural lovely self to a scene. She is so kind and makes you feel like you’ve known each other for years. You’ll feel right at home with The Prep and Brooke as your coach.”

“My 12-year old son started working with Brooke in late 2021 and it has been such a great fit for him! She pushes him outside his comfort zone and explains things to him in a way he can understand. She helps him with his self-tapes and he continues to learn and grow! What we especially love about Brooke is she is very organized and focused so our lessons are super productive and efficient. She also makes herself available at night which is helpful for us being in an earlier time zone”
