Khadijah has been a master student of notable and prominent teachers of acting such as:

Khadijah has found, through all her studies, that the common denominator in all these techniques is, finding YOUR TRUTH and LIVING YOUR TRUTH, then and only then can you begin to become a great actor.

With this ideal and experience, she has become one of the most sought after acting coaches in her field. Inside the Industry Studios was created to help anyone with a passion, and who is seeking an honest approach to their craft; to grow.

I was fortunate to be able to work with Khadijah on two separate occasions while in the Texas area preparing some self-tape auditions. Her acting ability and understanding of the industry made our collaborative efforts easy and successful.

Khadijah has been one of “my” most cherished contemporaries. We braved the industry together in Los Angeles and her knowledge, coaching and creativity were crucial to my success in Hollywood.

I was an aspiring actress when Khadijah took me under her wing. She prepared me for what I needed to know about the industry and what I needed to succeed. She worked with me one on one with my resume, head shots, even my image. I was able to meet and audition for some of her colleagues in the industry. Not only am I blessed to have been mentored by her, but to have experienced her patience and compassion along with her knowledge was exactly what I needed. Khadijah’s help with preparation and attending her classes, I was able to succeed and have confidence in my auditions and land my first commercial.

My son has booked theatrical and industrial roles. He has also gotten callbacks and producer sessions for Disney thanks to Ms. Khadijah. I love her natural style of teaching and how she breaks the character down to my son.

I just had my first one-on-one coaching session with Khadijah and I would HIGHLY encourage others to take advantage of her knowledge and coaching! I will, without hesitation, refer actor associates to join and receive some valuable coaching from Khadijah Karriem!

Wow! What a great experience! I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have worked with and learned from Alpha Tyler. The things she shared and taught us will be beneficial to not just me, but to everyone who attended. After working on the audition techniques she taught, I am excited for my next audition, and I know that I will be able to use the things I learned from her.
