My partner and I just started work on our podcast a few months ago. As complete newbies, we thought we should go to a coach to get a competitive edge. A friend referred us to Melissa and given her experience as a radio and podcast host it was a no brainer. Our first session was mostly just picking her brain. In subsequent lessons, we went over everything from show topics and names to delivery and she even critiqued some of our podcasts. She is very knowledgeable, down to earth and approachable. Just do it you won’t regret it!

I started taking lessons from Melissa several years ago when I was first getting started at voiceover work. She not only helped me pick copy for my demo reel she coached me on how to do different reads. Since then I have been going back to her From time to time whether it’s for a refresher or help with an audition. I highly recommend her in addition to being a great teacher she is a lot of fun to work with!

I took a few sessions with Melissa to help with my diction. I do training videos for my company. I struggled with pacing and clarity in my voice. A few sessions s with Melissa and there was a noticeable difference. Thank you!

It was an introductory session that suggests a great working relationship with results.
Priscilla R.
Denise is a terrific teacher - after only three classes...very relaxed (!) and personable, too! We have done breathing exercises and articulation, which is very helpful. She is very attentive to breathing patterns and relaxation evidence... Actually, my goal is to do reading out loud well, so this course of work is very suited to me, and I think it's her design!

Great teacher I had a wonderful time I can't wait to take more lessons.

I've been a working actor for ten years. To me acting is one of the most visceral, healing and inspiring arts. It's an honor to invite people into that world and to help them succeed within it! My personalized training is for actors who are interested in or already have a career in TV, film and commercials. We will train in audition technique, self tapes, scene study and the business side of acting (casting, agencies, resume structure, demo reels, what to do on set, what to do in the audition room, website building and more).

Feel free to check out examples of my work on my site: jasonburkey.net or on IMDB.
