Looking to start or enhance a career as a voice actor? Just looking for a fun way to become more in tune with your voice and body? I can help guide you to achieve your personal goals.

Using my background in linguistics, singing and acting, I will show you how the human body can produce a wide range of sounds for diverse effects. Voice-over work traditionally centers on animation, but we will discuss different ways of approaching radio, commercial and both child and adult-oriented cartoons for a deeper knowledge and skill set. We will do warm ups that classical singers use as well as analyze other voice artists' work to see what is best for you.

About Matthew
I am a world traveler with over 13 years of tutoring experience. I also have weight trained for about 15 years. Currently working on my PhD in sociolinguistics at the University of Pittsburgh, I received my MA in Spanish from NYU and can help you with many different areas. My experience as an editor for a publishing company, combined with other professional experience in a variety of positions, allow me to offer students a unique perspective on diverse subjects.

I've had 4 lessons with Kelsey so far and feel like I've already learned SO MUCH. I have never had a lesson in my life before I started with her, which could be intimidating but she makes you feel very comfortable.
Kelsey is awesome and really good at explaining techniques and also making sure you understand them. She's patient and encouraging. I know I still have so much left to learn and I'm really looking forward to it! She's very knowledgeable and you can tell she has a true passion for acting.

I have only been taking lessons for a short amount of time, but I feel as though I have learned SO much. We started from the basics and Ingrid did an amazing job at gaging the level I was at and working accordingly. She is so sweet and patient and really helps you learn all the basics one needs to play piano proficiently. After only five lessons, I was already playing entire songs. I'm excited to continue our lessons!

You will be able to walk away with help and knowledge recording voiceovers/reel, accents/dialects, how to do ADR, projection work, Linklater and Alexander technique, and more.

The voice is a crucial element in acting and is connected to our body, emotions, and attention. Unlocking the voice and breath is the key to a long and successful acting career. I believe that my training and attitude can help you find your breath and voice, and begin to unlock the doors where you know you belong.

I want to foster, the lessons I've been taught and learned, and help the actor change their path and careers. I love meeting new artists, collaborating, and getting results.

I'm a producer/actor/director who combines that with my passion of being a life-coach. I attended the high ranking, UNCSA, Royal Shakespeare Company, UCB, and have private coached for 5+ years.
I know the juggling that happens with the life of an actor and have the experience and ability to help you navigate it. During my private coaching, I've had successes such as: Master of None, Hawaii 5-0, Off-Broadway Plays, Julliard, DePaul, and more. My private coaching has helped clients book roles, extend their network, find longevity and purpo
se in the acting pursuit and life.

I became a fan of Jacob's theatre work in NYC. It's always fresh and inventive, which is why I coach with him on my audition scenes. I primarily go in for tv/film work, but his classical training foundation and fresh perspective translate to the screen. If you're looking for affordable coaching with a cutting edge, up and coming artist- call Jake!

I had the pleasure of working with David and Emmanuelle in middle school when they helped out with our production of Le Bourgeois gentilhomme. They helped keep the class focused on the work while also having immense fun. They were clearly passionate about their work and their enthusiasm was infectious. Theatre has since become a big part of my life and I am very grateful to have had David and Emmanuelle's guidance in my early years.

About Braden H.

Houston, TX

My philosophy is that an actor must learn how to respond believably to imaginary circumstances as themselves before they can respond believably as someone else. I strip the actor of "acting" and make them just respond honestly. We do this with improvisation exercises first. Later we will add scripts and make them develop characters outside of themselves. Slowly, we will expand the range of the actor with movement and vocal techniques. As we get more advanced the more we delve into psychology.

Students often report that acting helps them identify and express their own feelings in everyday life. After all, acting out stories is nothing but rehearsing for life.

About Braden
I am a professional director and performer in the Houston theater scene. I graduated from University of Houston with a Bachelors in Acting and Directing. I trained my voice at Houston Music Institute, University of Houston, and at Rice University where I primarily focused on classical, Broadway, and jazz techniques.

Many acting students come to me with big broad characters and extravagant gestures. While there are some shows that might be stylized this way, this isn't grounded in truth. Many directors will see it as false. I teach students to listen and respond honestly without forcing emotion. I believe that audiences can feel when emotion is genuine and when it's not. By learning to respond honestly, allowing themselves to feel, and thinking critically about the motives of characters, students become better listeners, better communica
tors, and more empathetic in their daily lives. They also become more believable and dynamic performers onstage or on screen.

Every voice is unique, and I want students to discover the beauty of their truly personal instrument. Because of the personal nature of the voice, I strive to create a safe space to explore. My main priority is freeing the voice from unnecessary tension and supporting it with the breath so students' true sound can be discovered. I know many different exercises for each specific element of vocal technique. I transfer between exercises to actual music pieces until proper technique becomes muscle memory and replaces old habits.

I'm a firm believer in the joy of art. If we are not having fun, we should probably be doing something else. Right?

I've been acting for over 25 years professionally and teaching acting for about 12 years. I love working with aspiring actors of all ages to help them reach their own unique goals. I've trained with top acting coaches Bob Luke and the Weist Baron school in NY and with Eleese Lester in Houston in addition to having graduated with a B.A. in Theater and Dance from the University of Texas Austin.
Having appeared in film, television and commercials with Edward Norton, Susan Sarandon, Tim Blake Nelson, Natalie Portman, Mike Rowe and more, I've been blessed to learn from amazing actors and coaches myself. I love to combine what has been most effective for myself as an actor to help my students make progress each week both in front of the camera and in the business area of the industry. I teach with a strong focus on technique primarily using the Stanislavsky method but also bring in elements of Meisner, Uta Hagen, and my own coaches. Whatever works and serves the actor!
