“Elissa is a master at demystifying this “scary” thing called, the voice. Because she is incredibly knowledgable about her craft, her teachings are practical and direct. On top of that, she is innately kind, supporting, and encouraging. Elissa is the real deal!”

“Before I worked with Elissa, I wasn't a good public speaker. I used to shake and I got really nervous. Watching myself on video I noticed a lack of inflection, strange eye movements and trying to remember "my lines" so hard that it came out awkward and forced. With Elissa I learned how to have confidence, so when I did a panel 7 months later, I did it without so much as a stutter. She taught me to stand there, in that moment where I would have historically-speaking been uncomfortable, and melt into it, letting fear and anxiety wash away and settle into the pose, the present moment, instead. Simply put, today is not the time to be silent, and I credit Elissa with helping me find my voice when I didn't even know I had one. ”
“How Your Voice Works is the best vocal training I have ever experienced! Elissa is extremely knowledgable and articulate, able to distill huge amounts of wisdom into really clear and useable teachings. I purchased How You Voice Works hoping to gain more insight from her unique focus on vocal anatomy. Elissa definitely delivered in that respect; but what I am most excited about is what she helped me un-learn. I now have more trust in my connection to the natural engineering of the human voice and I'm way less conscious about my technique as I perform. I find myself letting go more and more and experiencing a new level of freedom, range, and power. Singing has never been more fun or freeing!”
