  • Chris LaBarbera

    Matthew is an excellent coach and motivator for people serious about their craft. With his background as a school teacher and professional actor, he brings the best of both worlds of being able to motivate adult and child actors. Matthew's coaching of my daughter led to her being signed by a national agency and booking major brand name commercials. Matthew is passionate about the craft and has more energy and creative ideas than anyone we have yet to cross paths with. Take a lesson and see for yourself.

    Matthew is very professional and knows the business well. He’s patient with my daughter and works scenes in different ways which helps her grow as an actress. Every time they have a lesson together to prepare for an audition, I’m amazed by the results that Matthew provides. I highly recommend!
