Lisa Picotte  



"Lisa is an amazing teacher and person. I've taken a bunch of her classes and I always learn something new from her! She knows so much about the business, and is always there to push you forward and help in any way she can."

"Lisa and David have helped me tremendously with my work as an actor! They have definitely made me more confident in my work. Their privates not only prepare you 100 % for your auditions but they also let you experiment and do what YOU want and you don't find that in coaches these days."

"David and Lisa have been coaching me since I started acting about five years ago. It doesn't matter if I live in Atlanta, because they coach me using Skype or when I am in town. They are really good at what they do. They have taught me to trust my feelings about how to do a scene and be myself when I am doing an improv. I feel comfortable when I work with them. After a coaching session, I feel like I have a really great chance at booking my audition. They are a really big part of why I love acting."

"Lisa and David are exceptional coaches. They have helped me develop confidence in my abilities. Most coaches in LA are about making money. NOT LISA AND DAVID! They truly want the best for every student. Their classes help students develop honest characters. No matter what age or class, they create a safe environment for the actors to find and be themselves. I absolutely LOVE them."

"Lisa's class helped me form my career. She helped me identify my own strengths so that I could excel at auditions. She didn't try to mold me. Instead, she brought my own talent out. Her classes are full of serious talent. When i go to auditions, I often see her other students because casting directors hire her students and know how talented her students are. I have made life-long friends and am very happy she has become part of my journey."
