"What can I say that I have not said about Alan Gordon Studio. When I first spoke to Alan about taking his class, the first thing I said was, "I need you to be honest with me and not blow smoke up my ass. I want to be a better actor." His response, "I never resort to false praise. You will always get truthful feedback from me." He never let me down. Alan is an actor's encyclopedia. I mean I'm a guy who grew up in the Projects of NYC, and I didn't know the difference between emoting and living truthfully, and thanks to Alan I know the difference and I rely on the instincts I developed while studying with him. Thanks to Alan I can feel when I push and when I'm being false. I tell Alan all the time and I will say it here, Alan has made me a better actor because of his knowledge and love for our craft."

"Dear NYC actors, If you are looking for exceptional training with a knowledgeable, experienced, personable teacher I highly recommend Alan Gordon, the owner of Alan Gordon Studio. Alan specializes in the Meisner Technique, scene study and audition technique. He also provides private coaching that is invaluable for auditions. In the several years I have been working with him he has helped me to develop my skills tremendously. He always provides corrective criticism that is straight forward and respectful. He does not offer false praise as he has told us so many times that it "is destructive and compromises our growth as artists.” He creates a safe environment that allows students to take risks and make mistakes and learn from their mistakes. Alan has developed a clear and effective way of teaching the Meisner Technique that has a lasting impact on the development of your instincts. This method has helped me enormously in all aspects of my work. I am happy to have Alan Gordon in my life. I am very grateful that the hard work with Alan helped me to get the many acting jobs that have been coming my way. I wish you all the best of luck in your careers."

"Alan Gordon has the unique gift of helping students at all levels of their artistic development find truth in their work and in their lives. As all great teachers do, he inspires growth by creating a safe environment where students feel free to take risks without fear of being stifled. By no means does Alan coddle his students. His feedback is clear, precise, and always with his students' best interests at heart. He never humiliates or embarrasses anyone. He respects his students and treats them like adults. With his expert guidance students feel empowered and develop the ability to find and expose the truth that lives inside of them. Students learn to free themselves in the classroom so that they can work believably and spontaneously onstage or in front of the camera. His approach to teaching Meisner is direct, stressing at all times the importance of listening. When necessary he provides clear cut examples that illuminate the point of the exercises. His candid ability to distill the meaning of Sanford Meisner's work preserves the lineage and the process of achieving truthful behavior and fullness through this technique. What is real for the actor will be real for the audience and through that exchange we may reach enlightenment."

"Alan has been the one person that I have continually stuck with after all these years. I met Alan 10 years ago and not only have I found that he provides me with what I need as a foundation to grow, I find that I am constantly learning in his class and always have his support and guidance all along the way, which to me is an invaluable gift. Alan has me itching to work every time which I haven't found anywhere else. It's a ride through personal freedom and specificity in acting that I recommend to everyone."

"Alan Gordon is absolutely the finest teacher and coach I have ever worked with in all my years in the business. He is sincere, dedicated, has a passion for his work, and teaches you how to bring the truth out in yourself and how to connect that to the character. He is meticulous in his care of the material and just as important his respect for the individual. Always positive and encouraging he motivates you to get the very best out of yourself. His ability to break down a scene is nothing short of remarkable. Whether you are a seasoned professional, a beginner or somewhere in between I highly recommend that you study with him.
