Randy was the most gracious voice coach I've ever met with! Not only was he encouraging, he truly cared about my success and enjoyment as a speaker. He even went over 10-15 minutes on a couple appointment times to make sure I was all squared away. Wonderful person and WONDERFUL at what he does. Great sound proof studio too with high tech equipment. Loved that he gave me his input and help me edit my speech/memorize it. Also gave me tips on my tone of voice, etc. thank you for everything Randy!

Started working with Marjorie on a whim. It turned out to be one of the best spur of the moment decisions I've ever made. To start off, I had absolutely no background in singing. I do a lot of public speaking so wanted to work on my enunciation. So I decided to go the extreme and learn to sing. If you can sing in front of people, you have no problem enunciating.

Marjorie has a wide range of students, from beginners to advanced. One thing you can be certain about her is that she has a passion for teaching and loves teaching beginners. The commitment to help you improve is there. In my opinion, that is what you want in a teacher. I have the utmost confidence in recommending Marjorie to someone who is looking for a teacher.

Marjorie is a delight. From the moment I walked in she had a smile on her face and I felt very welcome. From just one lesson she showed me techniques that extremely enhanced my voice with no pressure on the throat. I had not really sung for ten years and I felt like my voice is still there. It made me very happy. I am using the techniques daily until our next appointment. I highly recommend her!

David was very helpful and I learned more about my Roland keyboard. He is very friendly and likeable. He was very patient with me as I haven't played for a long timed. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

Wesley is just wonderful. I felt comfortable with him as soon as we met and I learned so much in just the first 30 minutes. And I already feel so much more confident that my speaking engagement will rock now that I have Wesley as my coach!

Carolyn is an amazing teacher! As a beginning singer, she knows how to tailor lessons exactly to my needs. She does a spectacular job at accommodating the rock music style of singing I use in my song writing, recording, and performances, and is always clear about what's working for me and what I can improve, and how.

Furthermore, she has a strong song-writing and production background and has acted as a producer of sorts in the best way possible, challenging me to work outside of my comfort zone in order to help me package the music I've written into the best songs they could ever be.

She really knows what she is doing, is extremely personable, and I highly recommend her for anything music-related!

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out
When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, itĀ’s animation.
