"Classes with Matt have been awesome for maintaining and improving my acting skills, focusing on auditioning.

Being a highly experienced actor and director, Matt gives feedback and attention to each scene and you can notice the improvement because he sends a downloadable link  for you to review.

Every week is heaps of fun and I'd recommend this class to any actor wanting to work on their character process and auditioning skills."

Matt’s been a part of my Acting journey since 2019 and has been an absolute gem of a human being, let alone amazing teacher and mentor.

 

His classes and expertise have been extremely valuable to my confidence in screen acting and audition technique. Matt creates an extremely safe, loving space for his actors to be vulnerable and allow themselves to submit to whatever scene they are acting in.

 

Matt's energy attracts a specific kind of hard working, humble actor which has created an amazing community to be a part of. Extremely grateful to know Matt and to work with a world class, award winning, actor, director and writer. Can't recommend his classes enough.

"I can't say enough great things about Matt's approach.

It's a privilege to to perform in front of one of Australia's top Actor/Director's every week and receive guidance to grow.

Matt's classes have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, but you know everyone is there to work and Matt will get the best performance out of you.  

I no longer need multiple takes to get the best out of an audition piece thanks to Matt."

"I can't recommend a better teacher. Matt is wonderfully patient, skilled and has a huge wealth of knowledge that he generously shares.

He's invested in every student, and provides a safe and supportive environment that allows each actor to explore the work and their creative abilities.

The studio is set up to a professional standard, providing polished footage perfect for self taping.  

 

If only 6 stars were an option!"

The best way to Describe Matt for me is that he has the character of Ted lasso and the precision, Charm and Charisma of David Beckham!

 

Before he’s a coach, he’s an amazing human, I respect him and I think this is so important because there are many acting coaches but not many humans that are respectable.

 

Secondly, I never feel like I’m in an acting class when I work with him, I feel safe and have so much fun letting my inner child just play!
