An actor friend recommended John’s workshops to me and, after completing Procedural Drama and The Audition Reimagined, I cannot sing his praises loudly enough. John is quite possibly one of the finest teachers I have ever encountered. His knowledge, passion for the craft, and tireless effort to make you a better actor is invaluable, not to mention, highly effective. As a first-time actor, to suddenly be studying amongst extremely talented people was a bit daunting, but John quickly puts you at ease and made the process instructional and fun at the same time. I loved practicing the scenes outside of class with my partners via FaceTime. Learning to navigate the audition process via Zoom is imperative with today’s industry standard. Acting with a partner via Zoom allows you to get creative within a limited space (which is something that will make you stand out to Casting Directors later on!) I cannot wait to sign up for my next workshop. I think I just may be a John D’Aquino acting student for life!
