"Corey is everything I look for in a coach and teacher. He pushes you while being supportive. He can speak effortlessly to actors at different levels and communicate exactly what the person needs to access emotionally and then take them there. He really helps you bring nuanced choices to your role. I have trained all over the world and corey is one the best teachers I have worked with."
Ted welch (Grey's Anatomy, The Help, True Blood)
"I have worked with a number teachers. Some created an unsafe environment for vulnerable and honest creativity to ensue. Corey not only creates a safe space for artists to explore in--he carries deep insight and knowledge. He sees each actor individually and focuses in on each student uniquely; this allows time to excavate who they truly are as an artist. Corey fully meets you where you are in you craft, then he finds ways to motivate you forward and draw out who you are. He is honest and truthful but empathetic and kind. He carries a rich history of experience and tutelage from some of the greatest teachers of acting and theatre. He is a rare gem in today's acting industry."
"In a world where it's difficult to pick out the hacks from the legitimate teachers, Corey Parker is the real deal. His no-nonsense method will cut into the truth of who you are as an individual and help you express your character through the truest language of human behavior."
"Corey Parker's workshop provides a space to be vulnerable in the transformation while you learn. His individualized, intuitive notes are deliberately presented to help the actor and their unique filter. He provides advice for actors on technical, business, and instinctive levels, all of which are helpful to be more successful in your craft. From beginning to end, his knowledge and experience is evident in the thorough exercises he implements."
"I realized when observing Corey interact with other members of the class, at just how open and available he is as an artist. How right to the point and how very specific his responses were to questions and problems. I realized at what a high level he is working as an artist. It got me thinking about this aspect in my approach and where I need to up my game in my acting."

Diane Love, NYC
"Corey led a fantastic class this past week at HB studio. I enjoyed the classes and feel I’ve learned a lot. He is a very friendly and approachable teacher. His instruction techniques varied appropriately according to the needs of each specific actor. I felt his notes were insightful and beneficial. I also appreciated his first-hand experiences and insights."
Geoffrey Greene, NYC
“Corey certainly is a very good teacher. He’s very alert with just the right amount of intervention and patience and advice to get the student back on course.”
Ron Crawford, NYC
"Thanks for giving a wonderful On-Camera Audition Workshop at HB this month.
I learned so much, not only from working on my own sides, but also from observing
my fellow students and hearing the feedback you gave them. I also appreciate your
sharing with us your experience and wisdom regarding 'The Biz.'"
"Corey's workshop was much more than I expected or hoped for. Corey is a very generous teacher with a keen instinct for what each actor needs and a positive, personal and organic way of generating it. My biggest take away from the workshop was that I now feel a different connection with the camera. It's "there" in the same way that the walls are there and the furniture is there. It's no longer larger than life and an obstacle that stops my flow. I'm very grateful for that."
“Corey helped me and the class get in touch with our own humanity. And then translate that to our work. He talked about acting in a way I hadn’t heard before from other teachers. He really took the time to teach us individually and bring out our essence. Highly recommend him as a coach!”
