Just booked a Guest-Star recurring role on the Comedy Central hit TV show, The Jim Gaffigan Show. The Buffalo, NY based 14-year-old has also recently had several callbacks on Broadway Musicals in NYC. The Doran family says this of Frank.

"My son Aidan has grown tremendously as an actor under the tutelage of Frank Rossi.  Frank's advanced acting class has a wide range of ages/abilities, and the environment fosters being supportive of one another while giving honest feedback.  Frank is an amazing mentor, he knows his stuff, he is extremely supportive and wants the best for each and every one of his students.  Frank's self taping of auditions have been a game changer for my son.  My son started with Frank by landing auditions, now he lands the roles.  We are very fortunate to have one of the best acting coaches here in our own backyard."

"In less than two years, Frank Rossi has not only taught me the necessary skills to become an actor, he has also given me the opportunity to see myself in a whole new light. Frank is an inspiring teacher who settles for nothing less than your best. He has pushed me not only to be a better actor, but a better teacher to my own students, as well as a better person.

The classroom environment that Frank creates is a warm and nurturing one in which every student is welcome. I have met some lifelong friends there. I consider Frank a tremendous teacher and a great friend. Thanks to Frank, I've been exposed to several acting opportunities I never dreamed were possible. Thank you, Frank."

"If you really want to become a successful actor or actress, you need to study with Frank Rossi. He is amazing at what he does. I have always wanted to get into this industry, but never took the time to really try it. Instead, I focused my energy on a career as a dentist, a business entrepreneur and a taking care of my wife & 3 girls. Then, about 2 years ago, I told myself I am finally going to be an actor in my spare time, so I called Frank and got started the next day in his basic class.

After the basics class, I started attending the advanced class regularly. With Frank's training, I booked roles on, General Hospital, the TV MOW, Battledogs, and a New Era Hats short film which was unveiled at the 2014 NFL Draft. Then in June of 2016, I booked my first principal role in the Hollywood feature film, Marshall - starring; Chad Boseman, Kate Hudson & Josh Gad. I worked a week on the project and had the time of my life. Frank coached and auditioned me. Thank you, Frank!"

Recently co-starred in the 20th Century Fox feature film, Vampires Suck and is currently a series regular in Alan Ball's (American Beauty) new HBO series All Signs Of Death: Congratulations to Kelsey. Ms. Ford offers the following regarding, Mr. Rossi and his studio.

"Frank is beyond a passionate person, and his intensity for acting is contagious. I leave each class feeling inspired to work even harder on my own. He forces event the best actors to face their weaknesses head on - giving them the tools to deliver their strongest performance possible. Taking Frank's class and studying with him privately has given me a great deal of confidence, especially on auditions, and when working on a film set.

Frank is always on top of his game. He knows the ins and outs of Hollywood, can negotiate with the best of them, and in less than six months has helped me secure my first role in the studio film, Adventureland and a co-starring role in an independent feature, while simultaneously making sure I read for everything I'm right for. His DVD series is also a wonderful tool that helps me in my process.

My parents have both been to Frank's class and consider him a wonderful role model for young people. I consider him even more than that. To me, he is a great acting coach, friend and mentor."

"I have taught grades 7-12 and coached sports for ten years. And I believe that, 'people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.' Frank Rossi is the epitome of this statement. I recently booked a recurring national hosting job with Kmart, dozens of commercials and industrials, along with three feature films over the past five years while working with Frank. The man knows what to teach and how to teach it. His DVD series is a very god indicator of that. I regularly refer to it before a big audition, whether it be; stage, film or television."

Frank's classes and private coaching skills have taught my daughter a great deal about herself. Her communication and listening skills have been heightened - her grades are at the top of her class. And most importantly, her confidence - real confidence in herself is beginning to blossom. I would highly recommend Frank Rossi as an acting coach."
