They say you must study to master your craft. My college professor suggested a few teachers and took John Pallotta's acting intensive and was hooked. He is a no fluff, tell you like it is kind of teacher. Sometimes tough (Tough Love) but he gets you were you have to be.

Check out one of his classes at www.johnpallotta.com

The only way for an actor to excel at their craft is by the honest and focused guidance from a teacher that knows the business and how tough it can be on the untrained and unskilled actor. Personally, I will take a dose of absolute reality and truth from my mentor John Pallotta any day of the week, for I know that his only concern is to help me become a professional that is prepared to meet the reality of the business and the challenges that all actors must face.

As many of the big stars frequent class (Danny Aiello, Joe DoNofrio and others) and say: " John is damn near the best coach in the business today. HE SURE IS!!!He has taken the stage with some of the greatest of our time and is so very humble about all of it. He wont talk about it like other teachers, you will find out as you go along.He teaches the craft and wont fill you with a load of bull just to attract students to fill classes. he is real and genuine and like that about him.

With John Pallotta, being an actor is much more than expensive headshots, more than just smiling for the camera or the way you walk into a room or a Q&A with a visiting Industry. It's about being a part of something greater than just yourself; it is your heart as an actor, the colors of your soul, the way you wake every morning and question the universe, your very being as an actor and a person, and this thing we all do and want to be successful at.Thank you John for making me see things a little bit differently now that I am in your class.

The BEST ON CAMERA Teacher Ever. That is all I have to say. You walk into his classroom you see people you have watched on TV, even Miss America goes to him. He is that freaking good.

If you are looking for a "by the book" approach to acting or for a teacher who sits and just talks and talks technique at you, this is NOT the place for you. John is a very "Hands On", "teach while doing" coach. He gets the students up and working from the minute they come through the door. I would say his approach is "don't talk about it, be about it". Which is what acting is all about, BEING. Of course as every coach should, he provides the necessary tools that every actor needs. He lays it out all on the table and gives the actor the freedom to choose what's best for them, and then he helps them apply it onto film. Take a class with John Pallotta and you won't be disappointed!

I go to casting directors to be seen, I go to John Pallotta to get the tools to get me where I have to be so I can be ready when I am in front of the casting director.John gets people on top of there game and gives you the tools to be in top performance. He is not a talker like some of the others that charge tons of money with big words and dreams. I came out of Breaking into Hollywood in nyc where they charged me 3000 dollars for my dreams. John was only 250 a month and even had casting directors as students in his classes learning from him.

Hear about John Pallotta from word of mouth and came to audit, glad I did. Little worried as he seems geared towards advanced and professional actors. But like that he throws you in the fire. Liking this month so far and believe this is a great match.

I've been attending John's classes for a month now in New York and D.C., and I think he's a wonderful coach. He knows the industry inside and out, and his coaching has really helped me improve as an actor. John's method is pretty hands-on, so there is no sitting around doing book-work; you're thrown right into the mix as soon as you walk-in. I love that! Also, John is a very kind and caring teacher who has a way of bringing out the best in his students, which I have witnessed first-hand during a taping of his "Actor Whisperer" television show. If you're looking for a great coach, look no further. John is the best, hands-down!

Amazing Chicago intensive with John Pallotta. We (on occasion) get quite a few NYC acting teachers. John is not a big talker or showman type that build up the hype. He is quiet soft spoken and approaches you through your heart and mind.He kept bringing up the "HUMAN Condition" as it applies to acting. It made me rethink the way I approach my work and my characters. Hope he comes back soon.

Never heard about Mr Pallotta before today when we were told our regular teacher had taken ill and stepped away for the rest of the course. I've studied in college and outside after graduation. I learned more from Mr Pallotta in one week then all my years of study. When I'm finished with my class here I will be registering for his regular classes.

My mother studied with Lee Strasberg some 35 years ago and was in class with (then a young) John Pallotta. She was happy to see that he was teaching in New York City and wanted to make sure I was in his class. John is not only a great teacher, he is a wonderful human being, who makes no promises. I like this man and will continue to study with him - i just really like him.

Mr Pallotta is truly a master teacher. came in from NJ for his intensive, not knowing what to expect. I wanted to register right after the intensive and he turned down my offer to register. he then told me to go home and think about it. In the morning if you are still interested, then you call. he is also very humble and honest. i admire that.
