Would you like to discover a stronger, clearer, more expressive speaking voice and build your professional communication skills? It's a rapidly changing world out there and many of us are working from home. We're Zooming, Teams-ing, and sometimes wondering how we can truly make a strong connection with one another. The challenge is to embrace this new world, one where we rely on a webcam and a microphone for meaningful communication. If you want to use this time to work on your speaking voice, I can help. We'll create an individualized plan based on your goals and needs. Improving your voice helps you build confidence and beat stress. You can speak with greater resonance, volume, clarity, pronunciation, stamina, and/or technique. In addition to public speaking skills, we work on breathing, movement, and posture as essential companions to a rich vocal life and a warm online presence.

About Jennifer

If conventional approaches to improving your speaking voice aren't working for you, I can help. A teacher since 1999, I draw on a wide range of experiences and techniques. I can work with you to create an easy, enjoyable plan.I've worked with children, high school/college students, professional act

Jennifer has identified several ways that I use my voice inefficiently (my description - she is much kinder in her choice of words). My homework is concrete and substantive enough so that I can experience a different way of speaking. One example is what to do with my tongue when I say specific words. I think this could make a real difference for me.

I enjoyed my conversation with Jennifer. She taught me some useful exercises that help to cope with my stress. Look forward to the next lessons with Jennifer. Thank you!

Jen is great! Knowledgable and kind.

I help speakers develop powerful, authentic voices by combining knowledge of their instrument, vocal health practices and helping them develop the technique to easily sustain their sound. Together, we'll create your personalized 'toolkit' of exercises designed to promote proper posture, ease of breath support and help your voice attain the best speaking resonance.

We will learn how to add musicality to the voice, how to control dynamics and best practices for using intonation to tell the story, or give a presentation.

For 20 years I've assisted in developing singers, public speakers and voice over artists to access their authentic voice with more ease, accompanied by a personal resume spanning a lifetime of performing. My training includes 12 years of one-on-one training in apprenticeship for the field.

[Letters of recommendation from my professors & voice teachers available upon request.]

About Arlys

Are you a singer or speaker who would like a more powerful, authentic voice? My focus is to assist you in finding an easier way to sustain your best posture, breath support, resonance and pitch control by bringing awareness to existing vocal habits while providing a hands-on experience adjusting th

Arlys is great. She's obviously very experienced and a good instructor. I've never taken singing lessons before, so I don't know what to expect, but I felt relaxed and comfortable with her.

Being a public speaker, for many years, I have honed the skills of presentation, speech writing, and love helping others feel more confident in front of camera or large numbers of people. If you need longer lessons just book them consequently. (For example: 30+30)

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.
Hui F.
Stephanie helped my younger one prepare for competition. She was highly skillful, supportive yet strict. Initially, my girl was a bit nervous to work with Stephanie because of her high reputation. Stephanie was very kind and fun, using metaphors to help my 10-year old understand the music. She not only helped my child overcome barriers to master the music piece but also shared much practical advice for competition. We did not expect this but my 10-year old won the first prize and was invited to perform in Carnegie Hall New York. Highly recommend Stephanie!!!

"I always had a problem with public speaking. I don't articulate words well and don't have any volume. I'm shy and uncomfortable in front of people. Nicholas worked on vocal lessons and how to enunciate and project. We also did breathing exercises and where to place the tongue with words. I improved my diction and with that, got more confidence in speaking in front of people, which is important in my job. Highly Recommend."
