The Testimonials

"I had come to study with Matthew just at the right time to take my work and suc­cess to another level – and I am now THE LEAD ACTOR OF A SERIES due to Matthew’s coaching!

Hav­ing stud­ied at Amer­i­can Acad­emy of Dra­matic Arts in Man­hat­tan, and with Larry Moss and Ivana Chub­buck in Los Ange­les, I can say that Matthew Harrison’s teach­ing is def­i­nitely on par with them all and that he deserves to be placed in the same group with these great teach­ers. Matthew is eas­ily the best teacher that I have come across in Canada.

I can always draw on Matthew’s gifts which include a vast knowl­edge of script analy­sis and char­ac­ter devel­op­ment cou­pled with his com­pas­sion­ate insight into the human expe­ri­ence, and I am now con­fi­dent that I will be able to ATTAIN the goals that I have set for myself. So incred­i­bly grate­ful for your ded­i­ca­tion, Matthew. Thank you."
