“Steve is an outstanding actor and an even better teacher; he has taught me volumes about my craft and about myself! Steve is a mentor and a friend, and it is an honor to work with him.” – April Schiavoni

“Steve is an artist – someone whose intellect, commitment to collaboration, and sensitivity to the text defines his work. Steve’s warmth and perceptive humor make him not only a mesmerizing performer and an ideal director, but a friend. Whatever the material is, I bring it to Steve – it is his opinion I value most.” – Genevieve Adams

“Working with Steve Hamilton as a private coach and teacher is a rewarding experience for me at many levels. It is not every teacher who can work with confidence intimately, one on one with a student, encourage them, be very present to that student while having them search for the truth in their expression without pressure. I have greatly appreciated my time with this skilled teacher.” – Ellen Myers

“Steve Hamilton is the best acting teacher I have had – he opened me up to finding my own pace and being able to completely transform myself to live in a role.” – Joe Brondo

“I have been doing skype coaching with Stephen Hamilton since November of 2010, and it has been a wonderful and illuminating experience. He has helped me to approach texts with spontaneity, trust, honesty, and confidence, and provided me with invaluable tools for combating audition anxiety. Working with him, I have never felt a sense of distance due to skype, but have experienced him making a personal connection with me, much the way he would in person. The audition process is no longer as scary and mysterious as it once seemed for me, and I am approaching my latest set of auditions with a sense of clarity and grounded confidence that I attribute almost entirely to my work with him. I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone in search of one-on-one acting coaching, and assure them that yes, if you can’t access Steve in person, it really is possible to have a productive acting session on skype.” – Adriana Jones, Seattle, WA.
