“To study with a teacher with an integrity that matches Andrew’s talent is one of the most encouraging, humbling and exciting experiences an artist can have.”


“I  studied with Andrew Benne for more than a decade and I am not only a better actor because of his coaching and training techniques, but my writing and directing skills have also benefitted from years of study with Andrew Benne. He is the one who said that I should write and direct and so I did. His teaching gift is one of Hollywood’s best kept secrets.”

Andrew and I were both students in class together with Edward Kaye-Martin. After Ed passed away I followed Andrew to his studio. I spent some quality years in his class honing my skills, and he really helped me to get much more specific in my work. What followed was several contract roles on network soaps, and recurring series regular roles. Studying acting with a coach like Andrew is invaluable to have the discipline it takes to be a working actor.
