    Gregory is amazing! He really knows how to teach his students in the way they need to be taught! 10/10 would recommend his class.

    Had a great experience going to this class! Very insightful and focused instructor who will get straight to the point. I attended for a few months and in the process, I learned a lot about acting and myself. It helped a lot in my personal life since I learned a core message I still go by, which I lacked before going into this class. It is: Get out of your head and pay attention! Prepare to be embarrassed because the exercises will show you the realest you which you will learn to tame with time and honesty! This class is great for introverted people who are looking for a way to break out of their shell just like I was. Although I'm no longer attending, the lessons stuck with me and hope to return some day in the future!

    Gregory is an amazing teacher, I have studied acting from him for the last three years, and continue to be involved in his classes to keep my acting skills sharp. He is experienced, easy to work with and always gives attention and care to your individual progress. If you are serious about acting Gregory is the right teacher. I am now a professional actor with regular bookings thanks to Gregory
