...as a teacher
Rick, you have been an invaluable resource for me. Even after moving away, I continue to value your knowledge and experience and love to come back for lessons whenever I can. Your positivity and love for the work inspires me in every session. The passion and determination you have has greatly inspired the way I work. Thank you for all of your time whether it be hammering out notes or watching the same four lines of a monologue over and over. Your patience and knowledge has been integral to the actor and singer I am becoming. I look forward to working with you for years to come.

Over the past year I have had the pleasure of working with Rick Kish in many capacities. I have found in that time that Rick is deceivingly impressive. As well as being an extremely talented singer, he is equally as brilliant in acting, directing, and running a theatre company. It is difficult to find such an experienced performer offering lessons, and it was so nice to have a teacher with so much experience in the business. But the great thing about Rick is he genuinely cares about each individual student. When I first came to him, I was sure I wanted to go into theatre performance, but as I progressed I realized I really wanted to go into production. Rick not only supported me in that decision, he provided me with as many opportunities as possible in production. He helped me gain contacts, professional experience, and I currently attend The National Theatre School of Canada located in Montreal, Quebec for theatre production. Rick gives you personalized, practical training in a difficult field, which is rare to find and exceedingly valuable. I am incredibly glad I got to work with him
