Bill has been fantastic to work with. He is a wealth of knowledge in the area of voice acting and voice control in general. He has always been well prepared, exceptionally organized and on-time, and very helpful and thoughtful in his feedback and responses. I’m heading into my 4th class and am very glad I chose Bill to work with; I have already seen improvements in both my tone and voice quality, but perhaps most importantly, I’m gaining in confidence too. Looking forward to more classes! :)

This was my very first Public Speaking Lesson with Bill. He was patient, supportive, empathic, and optimistic about my potential for success while at the same time being very honest and direct in giving feedback and extremely informative and instructive based on his extensive knowledge and experience as well as gifts in teaching.

This is my first time taking online classes, and Bill has made it a fantastic experience. He is clear and concise in his lessons and provides homework to practice on one's own, in addition to practice during class time. In the short time I've been taking lessons, I've become much more comfortable and confident with my voice, have been able to learn about the voice acting industry as a whole, and take steps working towards my desired career. Bill is a great instructor, and I look forward to continuing my classes with him.

Not only has he helped improve my speaking voice, he's also helped me improve my presentation style and calm the pre-jitters. Bill is prepared, on time, and a very professional. He's been so helpful, that I just recently signed up for even more lessons! Don't hesitate. If you want to get better, Bill's will help make it happen.

Like Adrian said, the basic package is pretty good and have solid information on how to be more efficient at using the vocal instrument better.

But Bill has a hard time being specific, if I didn't ask him specific question that he just resort into generic statement,

From time to time, he even has this passive aggressive attitude. I signed up to improve my speech and accent because I know I need to work on it. I don't know why he sometimes need to emphasis on that almost to the point of gaslighting but hey maybe he just had a couple of bad days.

There are four type of knowledge:
the knowledge that you know you know,
the knowledge that you know that you don't know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you don't know.
If I know what I don't know then I wouldn't need to sign up for a class, I would just work on it.
People sign up for classes to move the fourth and third category into the first and second, so here is the lesson every instructor in every subjects should probably know.

Taking lessons with Bill has improved my speaking voice tremendously. I have been taking six sessions in a row now, 1 lesson each week (30 or 45 min sometimes) and the lessons taught me control over my voice, finding the right pitch naturally (so that I have even no effort speaking in a busy loud restaurant) and just really starting to love my voice and what kind of voice I really have without these habitual restrictions I had. I was nervous sometimes as part of the exercises were to make sounds you usually don't do, but he teaches in such a loving professional way, just show a bit of your hidden "actor talent" :) and I believe you will soon see the progress. Thank you so much, Bill!

Today I finished 50 lessons with Bill -one year-.

He taught me how to use my mouth, how to pronounce the letters, how to pronounce the words and many other things.

Before starting the lessons, I wasn't aware that people didn't understand what I said. People are polite, they rarely asked me to repeat. I found out that they hardly understood what I was saying.

After taking the lessons from Bill, I am confident that my counterparts are understanding what I say. I have proof :)

I am very happy that I invested the time for 50 Lessons with Bill and improved my accent.

Thank you Bill.

We discussed many tips (some of them very easy to implement but useful), and in future lessons will focus further on improvements.

I'm very glad for this, because I'd imagine there are a hundred ways to use your voice improperly, so having someone with Bill's experience hear your voice and offer recommendations is immensely valuable.

Bill knows the basics of accent reduction, and has great course material. He can get you from being a beginner to an intermediate capably.

However, I would not recommend Bill if you want to go from intermediate to advanced. After you master the basics of accent reduction, he repeats the same criticisms of you "you don't show any personality", "you're too stiff", "you don't speak naturally enough" again and again. When you prompt him to specify in what circumstances that happens, he just gets frustrated with you and goes back to generic talking points that don't help address my needs.

Only 10 lessons in - and already I have seen a significant difference in my 'on air' voice - thanks to the direction, tutelage, tools and ultimate care Bill has offered.
Every session has a great flow, offers new ideas and most importantly there's a great level of comfort as venturing into new areas with your voice is not always easy. It is also incredibly useful that Bill sends out the weeks lesson plan/agenda a few days before our lesson so that I can wrap my head around what we will cover. Further on, I have the lesson plan so that I can always revert back to the tools that are taught as a reminder.
Before Bill I had worked with a voice coach that was 4 times the cost, and very generic in the teachings, rather then with Bill who caters the sessions to my needs, and is obviously affordable.
I fully recommend Bill, as you can tell. Very little cost for you to try an introductory 5 lessons - and from there you will certainly learn new ways to increase/sharpen your skill level.

Bill is really pretty terrific. After going over the basics of first being understood in the public domain (voice and enunciation practices) we are now beginning, at my request, more commercial uses of speech. I have been in theater and done a few voice overs but just did the work with no training, and with the knowledge I could do better. Now I really feel like I am learning much from Bill about a subject area I always wanted more information about. I feel confident with Bill's specific and professional advice, practice and teaching materials (in this case, ad copy and homework).
Bill is also friendly and his teaching is not intimidating or stern. I enjoy his classes and remember his situations. I would highly recommend Bill as a teacher! Try taking one of his classes!
