William is a fine teacher.
All of my students have loved their time in this class with William, chasing a grasp of their best sound, voice.Cultivating Your Actor's Voice
'How to become a vocal athlete'

Our method for this course will travel in one direction using two paths. The first path requires an introduction to the sounds made when speaking English. The second path highlights the actor’s skill sets in making text their own.

Ed gets accused of being problematic in the industry..i believe it is because he is smart, curious, relentless; he has spent thousands and thousands of hours working out how to "play the scene"..and he Really has educated himself-very well read.

He understands intensely the power of story, and he cares.. I think this is one of the best interviews by an actor floating around out there.

"be a pluralist" -ed norton, quoting an act teacher..

The Mulholland Academy.. a great opportunity for acting. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a professional. I've learnt so much. I recommend this opportunity to everybody

The Mulholland Academy has absolutely changed my life. My experience here, has taught me not just how to be a better actor, but how better to be a human BEING. Which is, in the end, what acting is. It has taught me that acting is not just for the "talented" but, rather, for anyone who can breathe, feel, move...LIVE. And that's simply: everybody! The experience of discovering together the authenticity of ourselves - has produced a community of people from all walks of life and cultures who are deeply bound together as a family. The selfless, unsung heroes of the faculty and staff never ceasing to be teachers, remain our guides throughout our creative lives. MADA is truly a very unique place in the heart of the city. This is a place to discover the true art of Acting, and therefore, of LIFE itself​

I've seen many performances by students of Mulholland Academy and Department of Acting and I was always impressed with the results. The program's students and graduates really seemed like actors with years of experience under their belts, and not like people that had been studying acting for only a few months. I thus think it's a wonderful program in terms of what it can help people achieve.

An amazing academy with very skilled teachers. I couldn’t recommend Mulholland Academy more highly for emerging and professional actors alike. A great place to connect with other international and local performers!

I feel fortunate for having performed and studied at the Mulholland Academy. An excellent place for acting & learning., it combines many creative and inner elements. Laughing, enjoying, connecting, focusing, expanding, are just some I've experienced fully! The classes are structured in such a way that they really reduce the stress of being seen by others and an audience. I would fully recommend this school and all of its programs, without any hesitation!
