There is no better On-Camera coach/teacher than Matt Newton. I spent YEARS going to different teachers, trying this and that, hoping to find an approach that would help me feel more grounded and honest in my work, and always felt like something was missing. Matt has transformed how I approach my auditions and my work in a very short amount of time. He cuts through the b.s. and works with every actor as an individual. I have never had more confidence than I do now in my work.

I'm now taking my second workshop with Matt. Out of all the acting classes I've taken (both in NY and in LA), Matt's was the one I found the most helpful, applicable, and practical. Matt really pays attention to each individual student and acknowledges strengths and weaknesses. With that, he knows exactly how to challenge you in a way that brings tremendous improvement week to week. He creates a very comfortable judgement-free environment, while he is tough and honest... Exactly what a great acting coach should be! I look forward to taking more classes with him. Highly recommended.

Matt preaches and breathes honesty. When acting you feel the need to do justice to the script. A lot of the time this leads to an actor portraying a character and "showing" the camera how s/he feels. Matt has conditioned me into believing that less is more when acting for the camera. It's a very simple and well known theory, but it's hard to conceptualize until you actually see yourself on the screen. He truly cares for his students and it's evident by his thorough critiques which are emailed to you the following day.

I took the on-camera class with mathew blumm and it was amazing. I had no on-camera training prior and he really helped put me at ease so i could concentrate on developing and improving my skills. The class is so nurturing. I haven't been in many healthy, supportive acting environments so it was a much needed change.

I really got a lot out of this On Camera Technique class. Matt Newton is very good at getting you to where you need to get to nail the scene. He is very calm and straight forward. He tells it like it is in a very nice way.

I have been taking Matt Newtons Acting classes for about a year now and everytime I'm there I'm amazed of how laid back, and chill it is there,It's a non judgmental zone, and Matt N and Matty B are awesome coaches!!! They really know how to push you, and take you to your highest peak of acting!! And everytime I attend a class I feel my peak getting higher and higher!! They also give some great knowledge on the business side of acting, (headshots,agents etc) and you learn so much from the other actors as well, abd its always noce to watch them, and myself grow as an actor. These guys are the best in the world at what they do, and i highly recommend them!!

I recently took Matt Newton's On-Camera Audition Bootcamp in July and it was truly an amazing experience! With such an intimate class, Matt was able to focus on each student individually, and you have the advantage of learning from others in a class setting. His knowledge of the business, as well as, his personal experiences with being an accomplished actor relates to everyone, whether you are just starting out or more advanced. If you are interested in acting, Matt's the guy! I highly recommend MN Acting Studio!

I recently took Matt Blumm's On Camera Audition Bootcamp, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, judgment-free space to learn (which is everyone, right?!). From the very first class, Matt was encouraging and approachable. As time progressed, it was incredible to watch each student in class become more and more comfortable in front of a camera, and I feel that we all left each class as better, more honest actors. Matt Blumm gives truthful, insightful notes, and always posted our videos from class in a very timely manner. I look forward to furthering my acting studies with MN Acting Studio!

Matt Blumm is a very realistic and outgoing person. He is a type of teacher that is very patient and tells you exactly what your weakness are strengths are. i am very lucky to come across someone like this in my life and very happy that he is one of my leaders. IF YOU NEED ANY TIPS ON ACTING PLEASE CONSIDER MATT NEWTON AND MATT BLUMM.. they both are super.

Matt Blumm is amazing! I had a fantastic time on his on-camera audition bootcamp. The feedback was extremely helpful and I most definitely grew as an actor. Because of the experience, I feel more confident i my own auditions and cultivated more faith in my talent. Thank you, Matt!

I have taken other acting lessons at other facilities but it wasn't until I started training with Matt Newton that my confidence and skills have significantly grown. He genuinely values his time with his students. His dedication and patience are beyond excellent. His associate Matt Blumm is also a great teacher. Matt Newton definitely chose the right instructor. Matt B. is currently teaching the audition boot camp. He pushes the actors into being confident and feeling comfortable with the cameras. I recommend both Matt Newton and Matt Blumm as instructors if an actor wants to master his/her craft. I will stick with both of them for a very long. Thank you both Matts!!!

I just finished up the On Camera Audition Bootcamp taught by Matt Blumm. I can't express how much I've grown over the past 4 weeks with Matt's training. There was a lot of time dedicated to each student, and by week four, everyone had huge improvements in their on-camera comfort level and ability to be natural in front of the camera. Matt has a knack for bringing out your best, and I look forward to taking more classes with him.

Matt is an amazing coach! I've taken his Basic acting class and since I liked it so much I enrolled in his On-camera audition bootcamp. These were my first acting classes that I've ever taken and I could not feel luckier that they were with Matt. I've learned and advanced so much in every single class. If you take the group classes it's a wonderful chance to meet some great and talented actors as well! Matt is very focused, insightful, patient, knows how to get the best out of you with challenging you, gives every student personal attention (since his classes are small) and will answer you any question you have about acting and the business. At the end of each class I felt more confident and inspired to do and learn more and more. Furthermore, he is a very friendly and nice person which makes taking his classes even more enjoyable and fun! I'm definitely looking forward to keeping working with you Matt. Thank you so much!

A great teacher should inspire students to dream, work and achieve their goals. They should plant the seed of motivation encouraging students to grow and succeed.I want to thank Matt for providing me with the knowledge and confidence to pursue a career in acting. Each class was fun, yet challenging. He understands each student helping us to fulfill our potential as performers.

Finding the right acting coach is always a difficult task. I honestly did not know what to expect from Matt’s 4-week On-Camera Audition Bootcamp class when I signed up. However, it was so good that I signed up for more sessions of that class afterwards. Matt is such a nice guy and creates a very comfortable atmosphere. He gets to know each of his students individually and really understands what’s good for them. His classes are fun yet challenging which is the perfect combination. It’s an amazing feeling when you actually see yourself progressing every week. Matt makes me more passionate and confident about acting every time. Best coach ever! Thanks for everything Matt! ?

Matt proves himself over and over again to be an upstanding and wonderful teacher. Though young he knows his stuff and can go deep in you to bring out the best in you. He is a true master of the craft. His fees are affordable with excellent results

Just Finished Matt's four session audition class and it was awesome. As an older adult tring a new career I was immediately comfortable. Within two sessions I was able to take Matt's honest and direct feedback, and completely relax and learn some great techniques. I've already see a big improvement in my auditions and have landed two parts in films. I am now taking private coaching with Matt and I urge you, if you are considering the many options out there, you should go with Matt.

Attend my first Skype session with Matt, during that time he helped me focus on the business side of acting, how to 'appeal' to agents and what I need to do in the mean time. often I hit the nail on the head, other times has been time wasted. he helped me to unload some unnesessary tasks as to focus and have better control over career moves...I will be booking again! thanks Matt!

Matt is an exceptional actor himself and an even better teacher. He says it as it is and his honesty and integrity as a person and a coach make him someone I felt very comfortable trusting with my work. He coached me on some very important auditions and I have learnt a lot from his knowledge of how to approach auditions and the business in general. Overall, you will surely learn something from Matt everytime you see him and you will be in safe hands. Keep it up Matt!

Matt has an excellent on film audition class. As a beginning Actor in this field I've learned many new skills from working with Matt in this class. He has given very on point critiques of your work that definitely sends you in the right direction. In a field that is highly competitive & cutt-throat you can't beat the price, and working with other great Actors gives you a better perspective for bringing great work to the audition. Will continue to work with Matt, and if you haven't yet given his class a try, please do you won't be disappointed!!!

I just finished my first four-week film audition class with Matt and have already signed up for the next one. I am a seasoned stage actor but am new to film work, and Matt's class has been a wonderful introduction to the world of film acting! With the small number of students, I feel like I am given a good amount of attention, and he asks students for their feedback periodically. He is firm but fair in his critiques, and it's great to get the video later in the week to review with personalized comments from him in his e-mail. Though I was the oldest person in the class, I felt completely at ease and felt I fit in with the others. . .I recommend this class for actors of all ages and experience levels. While he is a working actor, Matt obviously has a special love for his work as a teacher and coach and he is delightful to work with.

Matt, You are a very talented and knowledgeable teacher. I learned so much in your class that I didn't from other acting coaches. Your approach to auditioning gave me the knowledge and confidence to go into an audition and come out feeling I did my best. I definitely will recommend anybody from the beginning actor to the stage actor trying to get into film and tv to study with you.

Coming into this class i didn't know what to expect, this was my first class with someone with any real experience in acting. Best decision I've made thus far. working with him is easy, he gives great advice, and I've grown as an actor since beginning his class. and i am going to continue to take his class. I recommend for anyone rookie or veteran in this industry to take his class. you will benefit from it greatly. i know i have.

Matt Newton in my opinion is by far, the best acting coach I came across in along time. His On Camera Audition Workshop is affordable, (especially living in NYC) and beneficial for ANY actor at ANY level.He makes you realize, acting doesn't get you the job...but just being in the moment does! He can pinpoint your nuances, and a make them shine. He can also point out the ones you didn't even know you had! You realize that when he sends you a copy of your work along with his comments of what you did that week. I mean really, who does that? Matt Newton does! That's committment! That's a GREAT Coach!!
