I had so much fun working with Alex. She has excellent teaching skills and a delightful personality. I am already excited for my next lesson.
Elena
I had a fantastic experience with Alexandra. I noticed a tremendous improvement in the way how I speak, pronounce the sounds (I'm not a native speaker), and express myself. What's even more important, I have now a toolbox of exercises and techniques that I can use anytime I need to rehearse my speech before a future presentation or a speaking engagement!
Aizhan
This is my first time ever taking accent reduction class. I’ve completed three lessons so far and it has been very interesting. It has been useful to learn about the sounds of the language. My tutor Alex explains it well, provides me with exercises that I can do on my own, as well as practices with me during the class. It is nice to hear other people already noticing my better articulation, unbelievable. Thank you Alex, looking forward to completing the course with you!

Focusing on diverse techniques, including types of characters, staging, blocking of scenes, costuming, creating characters, improv and games for each concept.

We are constantly play games to reinforce the techniques presented each week and the students always have fun. They walk away confident and wanting to learn more.

Spend time on costuming and set design, by creating with the materials we find at Goodwill, thrift stores and other retail businesses. We look over the characters descriptions and utilize our creative to flow with costuming and scenery.

In the past years we've done excerpts from The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and George and the Marvelous Medicine.

This summer of 2014, we're doing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where we are discussing staging, blocking, creating costumes and props.

I have been in the acting profession for 35 years - primarily Classical Stage and Voice-Over acting. I have taught on many levels and for different ages including workshops for high school students and university level conservatory programs. I have also taught adults in both Shakespeare and group Voice-over classes (at a Professional Studio). I love what I do and love teaching it to others.

At present, I create, preformed and produced my own audio work and have found that it is incredibly beneficial to learn something new or invest time in a subject or skill that you are interested in.

About Corliss

I am an actress that has performed and taught for over 35 years. I love it! I can help you prepare for auditions, study structure, develop skills, get over fears of speaking in public or simply reach a deeper understanding of your favorite texts. As for teaching voice-acting for voice-overs, I

Cathy
I initially had Corliss as a voice over teacher in a class, then decided to further my work with her as a coach and producer to create my voiceover demos. We covered all aspects of voiceover, including the physical: posture, microphone placement, etc., which I believe really enhanced my understanding of how physicality comes across via the voice. With her classical acting background, she was able to help me improve my overall speaking technique and provided me with vocal exercises to help minimize my regionalisms.

She was diligent in reviewing competitive demos to guide me to a variety of written copy and voice/energy levels that will help my demos stand up to those with more experience. She provided valuable advice regarding selection and use of materials for the demo and beyond as well as insights on the voiceover business.

I’m very pleased with the results of the two demos and expect to continue to take advantage of her coaching services as I grow in my new career.
Jenny
Corliss is a master at her craft! She makes you feel comfortable from the moment you meet her and has a genuine interest in your goals. Corliss tailored lessons to my learning style which was very encouraging for someone with my level of experience. She has a lovely personality and her enthusiasm is infectious. I would highly recommend taking lessons from Corliss!
Steve
I took a five-session Beginning Voice Acting class with Corliss in a professional recording studio. The critiques she gave me after every recording I made helped me to speak more clearly, and to increase the energy I was able to put into my recorded presentations. Without the critiques of my recordings, I would not have been able to improve my speaking ability. During the class, she made sure everyone in the class was made to feel welcome, and important. When I take the next level of the Voice Acting class series, I will be looking forward her critiques of my recorded presentations.

"For all my life I have been extremely soft-spoken and have been constantly reminded to speak up in social situations. This has negatively impacted my self confidence and fed into a cycle that made me even quieter and more reserved. I tried to self-treat by browsing through countless YouTube videos and hundreds of Reddit pages but found that my practice at home did not translate into me being a louder speaker in public. Finally I decided I had nothing to lose and everything to gain from seeing a trained professional. That's when I met Fawn. She immediately dissected my problem into aspects I could tackle individually. She dispelled some previously crippling fears and notions that held me back but I could never manage to express with anyone. She gave me breathing and projection exercises and the immediate feedback that I definitely needed. She even diagnosed a specific lisp that I would never have thought possible to change. We eventually got rid of it and the confidence I have gained in my speech is overwhelming. I came in quiet and seeking answers. I left confident, with a sense of direction, and a new mentor and friend. Fawn is effective, charming, and hilarious. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking answers and needs a coach for improvement, no matter the area."
