Famed UCLA Chair of Voice, Juliana Gondek says about Stormy Sacks that “He pours his knowledge and attention into the kids he teaches, who then routinely win top honors.  . .” and “He exemplifies the highest standards of professionalism and musical expertise, and even a cursory look at his resume attests to his work with dozens of the most prestigious performing organizations in North America.”


Fonna Bishop, Senior Administrator with the LAUSD said that in “over thirty-eight years as an educator, I have never observed an arts teacher as dedicated, professional and talented as Mr. Sacks.” She added that while at the Performing Arts Magnet at Hollywood High, “In a short period of time, Mr. Sacks has built a program that draws students from all part of the city. They come – they learn – and they sing.”
