'Classes of this kind are heavily reliant on the personality of the tutor and it's here that this course wins its stars.

I have known Remy for six years and during that
time I have experienced his extraordinary
expertise as a coach and his truly professional
approach. He has the patience that is required to be a great teacher.
Polly Hootkins CDG, Casting Director
Remy has contributed to both years of the Two Year Postgraduate Acting Course at Dramas Studio London. His work is inspiring, detailed and collaborative. He works hard at integrating his work within the syllabus of the course as a whole and, at the same time he contributes, in a very positive way to the developement and broadening of the syllabus. He is not afraid to air his views, and he is not afraid to change his approach depending on the demands of the individual individuals/students. A teacher and trainer of great integrity and vision, and (which is unusual), great flexibility. I look forward to a continued relationship with him in the future.
Chris Pickles, Principle, Drama Studio London
