My daughter just got done with her first lesson with David and the excitement she has is off-the-charts! She was naturally extremely nervous before the lesson, but I was not as David took the time to have a lengthy call with me a few days prior. He provided so much information, answered all of my questions, and provided the calm I needed with starting a new online program for my 15 yo daughter. She’s already preparing for her next lesson.

He broke down each line of her scene and the motivation behind it and took the extra time with her to make sure she understood everything and was delivering it naturally and effectively. He even spent extra time with her and didn’t finish the lesson until she fully got everything down. Very professional, fun, friendly and genuine.

I started taking lessons with David a few months ago with zero experience in acting. He has been a great coach who is also very patient. David is really flexible and understanding, always willing to work around my schedule as best he can. His deep experience and insight in the industry really helps when he starts working with you on auditioning. All in all, I am really glad to have David as my acting coach.

I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)

David is a phenomenal teacher! He gets to know you as an individual, your goals, and your motivation, then guides you accordingly. If you put the work in, take his teachings and advice to heart, and go get experience, he can help launch you to your goals! David instills confidence and clarity, and teaches from a place of expertise yielded from 30+ years in the industry. His accolades as an Emmy-award-winning actor goes to show that he not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. Davis is such a personable guy, and you'll be missing out on great instruction if you don't hire him right now!

David is amazing! I came to him as a beginner in January, and within a few months he introduced me to methods of acting, taught me the business side, developed monologue & scene work, AND he helped me find, pick, and breakdown two monologues for my school auditions. (I got into all three schools and was given an audition based scholarship for one - so yeah, he’s pretty good)

He’s fun, flexible, and genuinely cares about his students’ success. Super happy with my decision :)

David has really helped my auditions. I have booked two jobs since coaching with him. He takes me back to the basics, forces me to let go of my ego, and doesn't allow me to use any of my actor "tricks." Consequently my auditions are resonating in a new and effective way. As of right now, he is absolutely essential when I have an appointment. I emphatically recommend him for coaching.

I've been working with David as a coach on both auditions and jobs for years. He has a great understanding, not only of the craft, but also how to work with actors of any level. Whether you're brand new or have been doing it for years, David is a fantastic resource when it comes to analyzing the script, finding the most honest choices, and arcing scenes. No tricks or gimmicks here. If you're looking for someone to help you be the real deal, look no further.

I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it.

David Tom is not only a fine young actor but a wonderful coach. He listens. And that's one of the most important things an actor/actress can do. To listen and to react. He's one of the best there is at being natural, a quality lost on a lot of people these days. Trust in him and know that you are being coached by one of the BEST.

David's shows professionalism while coaching. He is great with people of all levels of experience. He has patience and takes the time to get to know each of his clients to determine what coaching tactic will best suit them. I would highly recommend David for coaching

David Tom is a very professional and an awesome acting coach/teacher. He takes his time to really make you feel comfortable which makes the whole process feel natural and constructive. I would recommend his service and have to other actors I know regardless of their experience I think he has the resume and expertise to help any actor at any level. It is rare to find such a successful actor that is also teaching. His classes have helped me so much in my chosen field. Thanks so much David

I have been acting for over twenty five years. David has the innate ability to create unforgotten characters. He reminds you why you decided to be an actor in the first place. I have used his input while filming numerous television shows as well as the movies Waiting and Legally Blond 1 and 2. David helps you fall in love with acting all over again. He is my good luck charm and I trust his insight implicitly.
