First off he has an exceptional eye. He sees his students and their work with unbelievable clarity. He sees their strengths, weakness, successes, failures, where and when they need to be pushed, and the challenges that suit the growth they need to achieve. His insights into the minutia of their work is inspiring. There have been endless times in working with John, in class, that he has given me a single, well phrased, note, between takes, that has allowed me to take a scene and my work to unexpected places.

I worked with John in my class a few years ago and he came at the work with a passion and openness that made working with him an absolute pleasure. Over the years, many of my students have worked with John in his classes and all have had nothing but praise for him as an acting coach. When actors in Toronto and in my class ask me if I have any recommendations for a scene study class, without hesitation I always send them John’s way.
