Speaking well all starts with proper breath coordination. As a voice major I understand the inner workings of how the voice works, and the proper way in which to speak without strain. Often people speak on a "vocal fry" this is the gargly sound that is very low in the speaking register, not only is this bad for your voice it also doesn't make a good impression to employers or during an interview process or public speaking event. I encourage even my voice students to recognize that habit and break it in order for their singing voices to grow.

If you are interested in improving your public speaking skills, or feel strain when you speak for extended periods of time, it is worth considering taking vocal lessons because without this proper technique severe damage can occur to your voice.

About Jordan

Lesson Details/Services: Singing/Audition and Resume Coach: Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repert

Jordan is very experienced and knowledgeable, I watched as she worked with me. She has an amazing ear. she hears nuances of differences in the slightest tone difference and can tell just what to do to help you sound wonderful. Looking forward to going back.
Thanks Jordan

My daughter had a fantastic first lesson and is looking forward to the next!
Evelyn H.
My name is Evelyn and I'm 33 yo. I'm also transgender MTF and have always wanted to sing with my new voice. Jordan is incredibly patient and shows a lot of care for what I have tried to accomplish. Without her I would have been too afraid the let my singing voice be heard. I'm so lucky to have found a professional like her to help me find my singing voice during the journey of my transition. I highly recommend her to anyone who is new to singing or wants to improve their existing voice. She's worth every minute.

I look forward to helping you discover your stronger, clearer, more expressive speaking voice. We'll create an individualized plan based on your goals and needs. Do you need to build confidence and beat stress? Would you like to speak with greater resonance, volume, clarity, pronunciation, stamina, and/or technique? In my studio, students learn with an emphasis on action and experimentation, rather than imitation. This is especially helpful for people who have tried repetition or ear training and want to do something different. It's also especially useful for those who rely on a strong and healthy voice for their profession. In addition to speaking technique, we work on breathing, movement, and posture as essential companions to a rich vocal life. I'm here to help you discover and embody your own special, powerful voice!

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.

Singing is an extension of speech, and actors, broadcasters and voice over artists can all benefit and improve the sound of their speaking voices by learning correct vocal technique. I start with the basics of breathing and support with some vocalizations/basic singing. Then we work by applying the techniques to a variety of texts.

About Roberta

Do you want to improve your voice? Do you want to sing for fun? Do you want coaching to sing in a band or record? Do you want to audition for plays and musicals, Regionals, or music school? Have you always wanted to learn to play the piano? Do you want to build confidence and improve your well

I love Roberta. She is so knowledgeable, professional and friendly...a wonderful combination to have in a teacher. She is patient and thorough. I would highly recommend her.
Beverly
Roberta is everything you would want in a teacher. She is exceptionally talented herself and knows how to share her knowledge with others. She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time.

Great teacher!! Extremely patient and makes learning the piano fun!!

"To be honest I've never acted a day in my life before. Tamika was absolutely wonderful in helping me calm my (obvuously) nervous self, and worked with what I naturally brought to the stage and highlighted my own attributes. By the time I had opening night, I felt more comfortable than presenting to a bunch of investors (which is my day job). Thank you again Tamika, for really helping me develop skills and traits for the acting stage even I didn't know I had in me! I loom forward to working with you again soon!"

5 Acting Warm Ups & Games to do Before an Audition

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft. Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen. Just as we see athletes spending time stretching and warming up before a performance, it’s mandatory that actors warm up before …
