This was my son's first lesson and he was enthralled. David worked with my son on material for an audition (improv and character analysis) he had immediately after the lesson. My son made it for the callbacks which I think was largely due to the work he did with David Tom.

My 11yr old son had his first lesson with David last night. David was wonderful! My son was extremely nervous but said David did a great job of making him feel comfortable and explaining things to him so he could understand. My son was so so excited after his lesson and wanted to know when his next lesson would be! We are very happy with our decision to take lessons with David!

I am as beginner as they come, and right away David made me feel comfortable. He's very good at bringing you into this world where things seem to be a reality because we base them on reality. He's outstanding and we've seen progress already!

It was a very good first session. We had enough time to get to know one another and begin a program for advancing my skills.
