the real deal 5/10/2007

Desiderio sensei is an amazing coach. He has a way of guiding you to discover what acting is all about. Through his Meisner training and scene studies, you will discover how to ground yourself through activities, how to develop emotional depth, create imaginary circumstances, etc. He is a wonderful teacher, but his class is not for the weak. You have to really want to learn the craft and be dedicated to it., because he will not let you off the hook. If you're willing, he is willing. He does not give up on anyone. more

The ONLY way to work! 5/9/2007

I have never came across a teacher who puts so much of his own passion and care into his work then John Desiderio. You can not measure the amount of faith and love he was for his work and his students. He puts everything he has into it. He trains thoroughbreds. It is easy to work hard for John because he shows you the rewards that come from dedication, trust, and believing in yourself. Truly the best. A great person equally as a teacher. I have never learned so much. more

John is an exceptional teacher. 5/9/2007

John Desiderio is by far one of the greatest teachers I have been taught by. He has the ability to figure out who you are as a person and then uses it to guide you as an actor. His classes are a place to play and take risks with the guidance of a brilliant teacher. Since taking his class I have booked three lead roles in different theatre productions and my first pilot! Pros: John's teaching more

A true Master 5/3/2007

If you've come to Los Angeles because you want to become an Actor or you are an actor who wants to improve/strengthen your craft than you will find no better teacher. He demands that his students come prepared and commit fully to the task at hand; if you meet these two simple requirements John will bend over backwards in order to help you meet your potential. John is like a master blacksmith; given the time and commitment he creates raw, sharp and powerful actors that move audiences. After one of his intensives you will see the world from a completely different perspective and love every moment of it. Pros: You are pushed to be your best Cons: Parking more

After having John as a teacher, I thought Meisner had to be abusive 2/10/2007

I had John Desiderio as a teacher last year, and while I haven't seen his new digs, I know him as a teacher. I saw his advertisement pop-up on CitySearch, and I simply had to give a review. \r \r After having John as a teacher, I thought Meisner had to be abusive (because I know that Sandy Meisner was abusive to his students, and John was to me). I?ve now had other Meisner classes with other teachers, and you don't have to be abusive to teach Meisner! I learned so much more without being persecuted and embarrassed in front of class. I know I wasn't the best in class, far from it, but I was doing my best. \r \r And this new program he has includes having him five days a week, the guy got on my nerved when I had him twice a week.\r Pros: Meisner is helpful Cons: John's attitude toward me more
