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 am experienced in Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Salsa, West African, Jazz, and Ballet. I began my dance training in the church and then expanded to clubs and stages across the United States.

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.
