I have just completed my MA in Contemporary Acting at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and I can honestly say that without Rory Feeney’s help and assistance through the audition process I would not be where I am now.Rory was very good at helping me to work on some of my problem area’s and instil in me the importance of just going for it. He is highly knowledgeable in his field and was happy to share inside info on all aspects of the audition process having served on panels himself.I found Rory really easy to work with and not in any way intimidating, important for me as at the start of this process I really lacked confidence. He’s also a really lovely bloke too. I would highly recommend Rory as a coach.

Choosing Rory for one to one drama coaching was one of the best decisions I have ever made regarding my drama school auditions.I've seen several coaches but the first class with Rory really impressed me and made me want to work with him more. He isn't one of those teachers who work with you just for the money. He gets involved so much with your monologues and helps you become better and better every time. His style is so much different from the other coaches and the way he make you understand your character and the situations is amazing.I am a foreign student, but I have never felt that language was an obstacle to be accepted into a drama school since I started to prepare for the auditions with him. He worked so hard with me on my diction and dialect and the difference from when I started working with him and now, are huge! If you want a coach who will push you then you should prepare with Rory Feeney.I owe all my progress and improvements to him. Our sessions weren't just about the auditions, they were a start to the training to become a professional actress too.

Rory's training at Central was invaluable to me. In our first term I was lucky enough to have him as a director for scene study. He gave me confidence in my ability as an actor, but also showed me how transitive verbs can be used effectively, which was something I had been struggling with. My abiding memory is how he taught me to believe in myself.

Stumbled across Rory when I was searching for one to one drama lessons for my upcoming masters’ auditions, and I cannot believe how lucky I have been to find such a fantastic teacher. In just six hours I feel that my acting has been transformed from simply trying to convey someone else’s story to embodying the character myself and giving an honest and true account of my own journey. Although we focused on a small selection of monologues for my upcoming auditions, I feel that I have acquired skills which I can now apply to any monologue or role which I come across in the future. Furthermore, because he has sat on audition panels himself many times before, I was given invaluable advice on what to expect and now feel prepared for anything they may throw at me. However, the most important change which I have found in myself since attending sessions with Rory is in my belief in myself and my abilities in acting. This is partly due to a better understanding of monologue techniques, but even more because of the constant support and encouragement which Rory has given me throughout my journey.
