I am a New York based producer however I am back home in Sydney working on a few projects. I had the absolute privilege of attending the 2012 Brent Street Full Time Graduation performance, and I was completely blown away by the level of talent that your school produces. I have been to my fair share of senior and final recitals, and I have to say that Brent Street, by far, is in the lead. The professionalism, dedication, hard work and joy was clearly evident on Tuesday night. You are all apart of a fantastic institution and I am so proud to know that Australia has a world-class school, especially in Sydney. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brent Street to anyone who wished to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, as I know that they will be receiving the best level of education in the field. I just wanted to write and congratulate each and every person at Brent Street, because on Tuesday night I was inspired, moved and reassured that the future of our industry in Australia is as strong as ever.Congratulations and thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart. With much gratitude, George Youakim
I want to take this opportunity to thank Brent Street for nurturing Tanika’s talent as a Performer over the last few years. I truly believe sending Tanika to Brent Street to train was the best decision we ever made. The performing opportunities she’s received in particular during her full time performing arts course has been fantastic and not to mention the friendship she’s made with both teachers and students. All the staff at Brent Street has been wonderful.
Just a quick update on Tanika – she’s now officially performing live shows as Mel’s Dinettes with Universal Studio Singapore and is enjoying her stint there. She also met ex Brent Streeters who are also performing at USS which is great. - Jen
"Brent Street helped and prepared me for every audition. They gave me the confidence to perform in audition situations and also gave me ways to interpret and present the audition material in ways that helped me get noticed!”
