    “Matthias is a phenomenal acting coach. I always come back to his teachings, whether it be preparing for theatre or film. Matthias has an engaging, attentive and intuitive teaching style that nurtures each student’s journey. He identifies potential blocks and offers the tools to work through them in order to understand where you need to go to reach a level of higher awareness and understanding as an actor. He breaks down the multifaceted process through a vast variety of exercises which makes the task at hand tangible and approachable, no matter where you are in your acting journey.

    Matthias’ workshops make up both individual and group exercises that shape and form each student and attune to each individual level. Matthias has guided me from a fundamental level to individual scene- and character work or auditions for schools and jobs.

    There is a wisdom and deep sense of humanity in the way he approaches each character or scene, teaching us to challenge our understanding of the human experience, be conscious and present in our acting choices, never judge our experience or understanding of the character, but be curious, free and creative.” – Nina Mariko Sandquist

    I took Matthias workshop as a beginner. It was one of my first acting experiences. Although I had a hard time opening up in the beginning, his sensitive individual care helped me overcome my fears and blockages. By the end of the week, not only did I perform like I had never imagined I could but also learned a lot about myself and my abilities and strengths. I would recommend Matthias‘ workshops to anyone who wants to improve their acting by taking a deep look into their soul and grow out of self-reflection. I will definitely continue to take part in Matthias‘ courses. He is a very inspiring and wonderful human being.” – Rebecca Veil

    Acting Summer Intensive

    „Matthias Schott is a gifted and spirited artist, and an effective curator / organizer of events, serving actors and directors all over the world. He has fused his talent for creating workshops, intensives and „happenings“ of all kinds, with his own experience as an instructor, and his cultivated, keen judgement and good taste. His endless curiosity and love of his art form, his city of Berlin and his fellow actors, seem to fuel his ability to selflessly give a great deal, year in and year out. – I wholeheartedly recommend working through his studio.“ – Seamus McNally–Director/Acting Coach, New York
    “The foundation acting course with Matthias is fantastic. It was engaging and exciting. Every exercise opened something new up and allowed us to step beyond ourselves and our habits and into a more honest place from which we could perform. – Facebook Recommendation
    “The Schott Acting Studio offers very good quality workshops, with teachers coming from different countries and with varied acting techniques. I have taken part in a few of these workshops and it has helped me a lot in my understanding of acting and gave me the opportunity to learn many techniques, to practice with motivated partners and to receive tips from outstanding teachers. I highly recommend this Studio to any actors and actresses, whether they are professionals or amateurs and would add to that, that it is a great chance to have the possibility to act in English, something that is difficult to find elsewhere in Berlin.” – Nagisa Morimoto
