I have been Studying with John Pallotta now for 6 years and have seen him grow from a small studio with 10 or 15 students to well over a hundred and in 4 states. He has Hollywood clients and Broadway stars that call on him now. I am so happy that if I have an audition for a commercial or pilot that he is still that kind of coach that will show up just before going in. He always knows that right words to say on any situation. Where most teachers know acting, John Pallotta is a master of the human condition, which makes a difference - a huge difference.

I am honored and have the pleasure of studying with John Pallotta now entering my second year. He has taught me to be a phenomenal actor and more then that he has taught us life lessons not just in acting but about each and every one of us as people and as human beings.

John Pallotta is from the old school of acting where being an actor meant "Being an actor" Punctual and professional was a must. He expects the same of his students. Phones off and ready to work. Be prepared.

John Pallotta is a gentle soul when he needs to be and coaxes the most delicate and intricate of emotions out of each individual student. He knows how to get you to places that you didnít know you could go.

John Pallotta class has honestly opened my eyes up to so many things that extend beyond the world of acting. My relationships have improved because of my ability to read people and communicate more clearly and thoroughly. When walking into an audition, I have the utmost confidence in my ability to deliver because I know I have been taught by one of the best.

I honestly canít say enough great things about John He is a man of integrity and I and the rest of us stand by our teacher.

If John Pallotta were a boxer, heíd be Jake LaMotta. A singer? Johnny Cash. Coffee? Triple espresso. An award? Most definitely The Oscar.

John Pallotta is a gifted artist, teacher, and human being whose mission in life is sharing his authority and love of acting with each and every one of his students. His attention and perception are uncanny. He is also one of the most sought after acting coaches in the business today.

John Pallotta "Rocked The House" In Chicago last night to every seat sold out!!! What can I say: I Love this guy. John Pallotta is a Powerful NYC acting coach that comes here to Chi-Town once a mo, who is giving me the tools to take my acting to the next level.

John's ability to challenge us to do our best work every time he comes here, and in an environment where you feel safe to meet those challenges.

He is in sync with our strengths and weaknesses, and provides adjustments that create change. He has a deep love not only for what he does, but also for the people he reaches out to.

God Bless you John Pallotta

I feel John Pallotta has a thorough understanding of the art of acting and also the industry requirements. Further to this, he is an amazing teacher- patient and encouraging. I feel the difference with this school is that he actually cares about his students, and has an understanding of what each of us need to do to take our acting careers further

John Pallotta is the top rated acting coach around. He is professional and truly passionate about what he does. His understudying of acting and what his students need goes beyond anything I have ever experienced. He helps his students in every way. There is no one better than John Pallotta, if you are looking for training GO TO HIM. He will change your life.

I Search of The Greater Truth with John Pallotta

I have taken many classes both in LA and now home in NYC. As John Pallotta says their are all the methods, books, theories that you have to choose from, but to be honest you do what works for YOU. As he say's: What ever works in search of the "Greater Truth".

I admire Mr Pallotta because he has studied everything directly from Lee Strasberg, Uta Hagen, Robert Lewis and many others. He tells us it is ultimately bringing yourself to each role and he is very keen in finding each of that in us. We are always improving as actors so it is refreshing to find a coach that gives you new perspective and makes you continually take risks.

It is amazing how much happens in the time you have with him every week, a simply on camera scene can go from nothing to a fully developed short film. He is very patient and nurturing but truly believes in each of his students. He expects a lot from you and tells us, this is a journey and a test of ones soul. Be ready if lightening strikes but also be ready if it doesn't happen.

Thank you for the journey John Pallotta.

John is "Theatrical tough love". He's no nonsense, tells you like it is, and that's the best way to learn. If you want to be coddled and have your hand held, find another coach. If you want to be a working actor, then John is the coach to work with.

JOHN PALLOTTA IS #1!!!!

If you're looking for someone who is passionately assertive about the art of acting and of teaching its artistry JOHN PALLOTTA is definitely the right fit! I have been in Johns classes for a couple months and I have learned way more in a couple months than I have ever learned in my history of acting!!! His approach to act shows that it comes from the soul!!

If you go JOHN PALLOTTA you go ALL THE WAY!!!

John Pallotta has a mastery of the craft like no other teacher I have ever met. He is quiet and does not say much, he just does and works his magic like no one I have ever seen. Though he may seem like a small studio, he actually teaches all across the country. Besides here in NYC, he is in Washington DC, Virginia, Chicago on occasion.

I joined his class after sitting in on a few of his classes. He does not push or force you to sign but simply says: "If you need me, I am here when you are ready." I appreciate that in him.

I like the fact that other acting teachers actually sit in on his classes as well as industry (to learn from him). He actually knows the craft inside and out and can work wonders with actors.

I have seen John Pallotta do wonderful work, not only as an acting teacher (he like the term acting coach). But he is also a gifted award winning playwright and on set coach.

He is a great guy, sometimes rough, raw but always real. I really like when he brings his dog to class to, she is so very friendly and sweet.

Wow, John Pallotta blew my mind away when he decided to help me act and well I might add. I feel blessed to be under the wing of "The Godfather of Acting". He is an invaluable resource and loves his students.

It made me so mad to see that someone wrote that, the above comment. Saying if he's so good why ain't he starring in movies. Well first of all, I had the honor of sitting in one of John's televised classes. My daughter is 9 years old & acts & models. She learned so much from John. As a mother of a child actress, I too learned from John. He IS a great coach & I don't know what your problem is with John but just meeting him once & seeing what he brought out of those actors that night I stand by him. I will be honored to have my daughter learn from him. I seen the difference from when the actors performed & then after he talked to them they performed again & there was a HUGE difference. The one lady's performance gave me chills. You can tell he enjoys coaching. I bet his students will succeed in life & will have a much more successful career then anyone on here talking trash about him. John Pallotta is an awesome acting coach & an awesome person!

Took a class with John Pallotta after the need to develop more on camera personalization skills. A casting director suggested that I at least take one of his On camera Personalization classes - and glad I did.

John is a very quiet man, he isn't flashy or showy like that other teachers that travel around. He quietly sinks not your head the skills you need to get the audition and hopefully the job.

In his classes he has some name talent that you've seen on TV, Broadway and in the movies (Joe Donofrio, Frank Albanese, Hettie Barnhill, Even Miss America and others that are in his masters class.

I can honestly say: John Pallotta knows how to teach the craft of acting as well as the business.

He isn't for everyone and he will be the first to say that. But he is honest and will put you where you have to be when the moment counts

John Pallotta is an amazing acting coach. I have been in his class now for 6 months and have learned so much in the short time that I have been here. I Would encourage all actors to check out his class to see if he's right for you as he is right for me as many others that have been to his classes on the East Coast.
