“In my two years of studying with Paul Parker I experienced tremendous growth as a performer.  Many of the techniques he taught me have become key parts of my acting process allowing me to bring each of my characters to true life.  Paul’s voice and breath work aided me in getting emotionally connected to both my innermost thoughts, feelings and my work.  That ability allows me to stand true in each moment of my performances.”

“It was a please studying with Paul Parker. Great technique. I learned a lot.”
 Elina Madison – Hollywood Walk of Fame  98 IMDB credits

I find Paul’s script analysis, camera and audition techniques very detailed and surgical. It allowed me to be more investigative, more curious and fearless. I thoroughly enjoyed audition techniques with Paul, because it has empowered me with confidence, walking into room, owning my read, focusing on the work and just being….I have garnered success through Paul’s teachings and that, I’m forever grateful… I still got my notes, and revised them on everything! Thank you, mate!”  Tarnau Massaquoi 47 IMDB credits

 “Ever since I joined AIDA about four months ago, my preparation for auditions has been so much more effective. I now have a routine I go through, and not just with script analysis, but with my preparation and relaxation before auditions. This routine has empowered me and left me with so much confidence with the entire process of auditioning. I also want to thank you for how much you care for the success of your students. It’s one of a kind, and you make all the actors feel safe to take risks and just go for it! I love how every time I show up to class, I get to work for pretty much the entire three hours, whereas in most classes, you might be able to put up a couple of scenes per month. Your private coaching sessions for my callbacks have been extremely helpful, especially with fine-tuning every moment in the scene, which really adds such an amazing dynamic to my work. The best thing is that I have already seen such amazing differences in my work and my choices as an actor, and I haven’t even made it through an eighth of the curriculum. So much to look forward to!!!!”  Preston Jones 44 IMDB credits

“I found Paul Parker’s script classes to be inspiring and simply awesome.  He has a very special ability to reach the diverse personalities in the room and bring out the best from the insecure beast within us. He has an anecdote for just about any issue an actor faces.”  Elisabeth Noone 29 IMDB credits

“I have studied with Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler and Paul is the best teacher I have ever had.” Rebecca Brooks 14 IMDB credits
