"Matthew’s classes have been instru­men­tal in my devel­op­ment as a pro­fes­sional actor. I look for­ward to his work­shops where I know that I’ll find the cre­ative and ener­gized envi­ron­ment Matthew facil­i­tates with his pos­i­tive approach to teach­ing. Matthew’s scene analy­sis makes coach­ing with him for an audi­tion or a role a joy as he is always able to sim­plify the scenes in order to find the true objec­tive and then he uses his acute sense of what makes peo­ple tick to find how that objec­tive relates specif­i­cally to my life. He has been one of the guid­ing forces in my career since I met him and I feel lucky to have found some­one like him to work with."
