"Aden is one of those people who you meet once and you’ll always remember. Her energy and wit hit you like a bolt of lightning. I had Aden as an improv teacher for improvised singing. I have also seen her perform over a dozen times. She brings both immense patience and active listening to both her students and the people she performs with. It is such a treat to have her as a teacher after seeing her in Girls, Girls, Girls, an improvised rock opera, and other shows around town. She was born for the stage and the classroom." - Sam Schack - Austin, TX
"I’ve taken Aden’s Improv Singing workshops twice before, and have loved every second of both! Obviously, as I signed up for [a recent] round as well. Actually, I will attend any workshop of hers that I am able! (yeah… I’m an Aden Fan!!) Aden is amazingly skilled at helping people be comfortable singing no matter their singing ability. She explains & teaches how to craft an improvised song in such a manner that makes it very easy for anyone to follow, learn & SING! Her teaching style is whole-heartedly supportive and encouraging. If you’ve ever wanted to do improvised singing, but have been afraid to … fear no more! Aden’s class will show you that you CAN do it!! Oh … and its HELLA FUN!!" - Julie Harrison - Salem, OR
"Think of all the special magical moments in your life. Those moments where you smile so uncontrollably hard that your face was sore for 2 days! Well, if you take a singing improv class with Aden Kirschner then you’re going to need ice packs for your FACE! Because you will not be able to stop smiling! I took 16 weeks of singing improv with Aden! Every week i couldn't wait to come to class. I am not a good singer but I love singing and Aden made me feel like a rock star. She is addicted to the magic that happens when she puts a bunch of strangers together and gets them singing their hearts out in no time flat!" - Doug Pendergras Jr. - Austin, TX
