5 Star Coach!

In summary: Fun and useful classes!Marc is a wonderful acting coach. He is personable, caring and insightful, and at the same time honest and forthright with his feedback, providing useful suggestions that help you grow as an actor. He has a knack for making his students feel at ease in his classes and bringing out the best in them, and it's evident that he truly delights in helping them improve.I really enjoyed working with Marc and highly recommend him to all other actors who want to take their acting to the next level. As a side note, weekday classes seem to be smaller than weekend classes and will give you more screen time.

Actorvan - Fundamentals Class

I first attended Marc's class in August just wanting to check it out as I had never taken any acting classes prior. I liked the fact that you could just drop-in and that it was taking place on Saturdays. I was very nervous coming in the first time, but I started feeling comfortable a few minutes in. I totally fell in love with the whole experience. Marc is fun to be with, he does great exercises in the class including the scene study and improv, but most importantly, he truly cares about each and every student. I am hooked - I have been coming regularly since August and I would highly recommend this class to anyone!

Marc has a way of seeing the richness and depth in a script . He sees veryquickly what elements are missing in a performance and conveys this easilyand with kindness. After coaching me through a rather lengthy and dauntingaudition piece, I got to the level I needed and ended up presentingsomething real, instead of something rushed and superficial.

Taking classes with Marc is a lot of fun as well as being instructive. Hehas good insights into how to improve creating the right character. I wouldhighly recommend checking out his course. No matter how new you are toacting, Marc can help!

I love Marc's honest, straightforward approach. I was nervous aboutgetting up on stage but he made it real easy to try. I felt verycomfortable to take some risks. I am now an actor!

I really enjoyed the way you approached the class, everything we did at the beginning really helped me to let go of any barriers I had up, and I was so very excited at hearing how you, and your students, communicate. Very open, very honest, and backed up with experience to boot!
