I strive to always be a student of the craft and he always takes me to a new level of specificity. He has been instrumental in my preparation for character work and for script analysis. Corey always helps me find the truth. His coaching has been a blessing to me."

- Annaleigh Ashford, MASTERS OF SEX

"In this class I found the power to not back down. Corey has helped me realize why my choices are not as specific as they can be. I can see now how I can get out of my head and into the action of the story, fighting for myself and the audience! Thanks, Corey."

- Mara Davi, SMASH

"Corey Parker's understanding of humanity and the craft of acting is astounding. He's masterful at serving the needs of the actor regardless of their skill set. He is incredibly intuitive, sensitive and nurturing. I believe these to be essential traits for an effective teacher and coach. Studying with Corey has always inspired me to start from a place of joy and love of acting, to dig deeper, to explore the boundless possibilities and to risk it all for my artistry. I'm proud to call him teacher, mentor, brother, and friend. He's the real deal."

- Shaun Baker, V.I.P

"Corey Parker is one of the best teachers in town. He has helped in every way as an acting coach. It is a delicate job working with actors. It is part therapy, part technician, and part preparing for flight. I believe one of the reasons Corey is so great is because for so many years of his life he was acting himself, with integrity, truth and depth."

- Sherilyn Flynn, TWIN PEAKS

"Corey is an exceptional teacher. I not only grew tremendously in his class, but also really found the joy in my work again. I have my MFA and have been to several studios in Los Angeles, but I have never before had a more intuitive and specific teacher than Corey. He possesses a magical ability of taking care of actors while helping them find their voice and what they uniquely bring to a set of sides. I loved my time with Corey!"
