Mimi directed the voice recordings for one of my films and it was a joy to watch her. She's brilliant at it!
~ Ainne Burke, film maker, Dublin (RTE)
J’ai étudié avec Mimi Seton pendant trois ans et de tous les professeur(e)s que j’ai pu rencontrer sur mon parcours, c’est la seule qui a su lier au professionnalisme de son enseignement une profonde humanité, un humour inégalable, la distance nécessaire, l’inspiration, un respect sans faille ainsi qu’une ouverture d’esprit sans pareille. Peu d’entre nous savent transmettre avec autant de ferveur et de bienveillance.»

Watching Mimi’s students lay it on the line in their shows is far better than American Idol. I haven't been so moved in Theatre for years. This is 'the Real Thing!'
~Bill Ratner, Voice Actor, ABC TV
Mimi is an amazing person who teaches from her heart and soul. She encourages
risk-taking in the most comfortable environment. She is a true healer!

Mimi's great kindness and superior intelligence make her a thoughtful and patient facilitator. She helped me prepare an important speech I was doing at an event with a number of the world's best-known New Thought leaders and authors, all great communicators, so I wanted to make sure my work was excellent.
~Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of the NY Times best-seller,
Mimi Seton embodies the best of all worlds: a talented composer, producer and performer whose work and creative journey continues to proliferate but she still finds time to nurture other talent as well. You literally amaze me with your generosity, joy and spirit!

Mimi really helped me learn how to ACT a song. She taught me subtext and performance ~ skills that are invaluable and make each song personal and unique to the performer
~ Ann LeSchander – Singer
I really enjoyed the class. You taught me so much about performing, it has completely changed me! Thank you!
~ Christina Davis, UCLA Extension Dept of Entertainment
"I didn't know if I had any talent or if someone could teach me to act when I called Mimi. She was so encouraging and clear about what I needed to learn that I felt maybe acting was something I really could do. She coached my audition for the GAITY SCHOOL OF ACTING in Dublin. I was accepted ~ so I figure she knows what she's doing! It was a lot of fun working with her."
~ Maura D., student in NYC
I first met Mimi in Ireland at the time she worked for Trinity College Dublin (late '90s). I needed a really versatile voice actor to play the lead character and several smaller roles in an animated series for TV. Mimi was truly dynamic. The producers loved her so much that they hired her to be the voice director for the series! "Norman Normal".
I found Mimi herself to be inspiring--both dedicated and efficient in getting the job done. Hiring her sped up the project and delivered higher quality overall. She was able to suggest edits on the scripts that vastly improved them.
Personally, I loved working with her and learned so much from her. She is a divine muse ~
and has a wealth of insights, experiences, and skills to bring finesse to any creative project.
Mimi is not only musical but poetic, not only a leader but a team player.

I met Mimi Seton in Los Angeles some years ago when I was cast in her musical, Blue Corridor. Her show was an amazing, eclectic, challenging, and soul-soothing journey. The music was divine and the words inspiring - - one of my favorite shows ever.
We reconnected a few months ago in New York. Not only is she still writing and composing beautiful work, but I also found out she is a skilled painter and photographer as well. She's AWESOME!
