Looking to start or enhance a career as a voice actor? Just trying to improve the overall quality of your speaking voice? 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. We will analyze your voice's current condition and gauge where you want to go with it, mapping out the best personalized plan for you. We will do warm ups that classical singers use (breathing techniques and vocalizations) to achieve your unique goals.

Some things to work on: breathing techniques, evening tone, enhancing quality, improving resonance, modifying pitch, strengthening sound, gaining confidence, and more.

The first session with Matthew, I can tell things are going to be okay. This makes me feel better; I could say right off the bat; he knows what he is teaching.

Currently taking lessons with Matthew after extensive search due to my intricate schedule and English level. Matthew's background, experience, presentation, and - during this time period - flexibility, make him an outstanding instructor. Highly recommended!

I have trained with dancers like Paulo Alcedo, Desi Babalu, and many others. I know that dancing can be a very scary vulnerable art, so I do everything I can to create a space that is encouraging and safe, one where your unique personality is embraced and encouraged.

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.

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.
Dmitry
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.

"Carissa is my go-to coach whenever I need to prep for auditions. She has an in-depth knowledge of text analysis, so she always helps me understand the most important moments in scenes/monologues and pushes me to make solid, stong choices so I can nail them in the audition room and walk out feeling confident. She is very patient, friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with/ learn from. Highly recommend her!"

"Carolyn was a tremendous teacher. I just wanted to understand the basics and she was able to provide an excellent foundation. I think that it's likely that I'm much (much) older than the usual student that's interested in tap, and Carolyn managed my own limitations with skill and good humor. Oh, and besides being a great teacher, she's an amazing tap dancer!"

"As a 70 year old professor/author I have always wanted to learn a magic trick to entertain because I've so enjoyed the wonderful illusions and slight-of-hand magic of performers like Daniel Chan. I never knew it would be so affordable to have someone with his level of professionalism actually teach me. I just had my first lesson and can honestly say I can't wait for the second one. His devotion to theory and is ability to make it practical are remarkable."
