Many of my students have gone on to careers in prominent professional regional theaters, major films, broadway plays, and prominent Television shows.

  • Edward Claudio

    I want you to know that today your former student (Brie Larson) was photographed by Annie Leibovitz, for the cover of Vainity Fair Magazine. When asked by the editor who was the most influential person in her acting career she said: 'Ed Claudio - he taught me how to tell the story' - any awards she receives, you played a big part in it" - Heather Larson ( the year before her daughter won the Academy Award for Best Actor in the motion picture "Room"). "He gave me so many opportunities". - Greta Gerwig Academy Award Nominated and Golden Globe Winner - the Sacramento Bee. "Ed Claudio's knowledge and experience of the actor's process has made him Sacramento's master teacher for more than two decades. If you want to learn the process from amateur to professional actor, go to Ed Claudio". -Tim Busfield, Emmy Award Winning Actor/Director/Producer/Screenwriter and Playwright".
