I am a college student who was overwhelmed with having to present in front of a large class. I sought out help from Carl hoping he would help me with my public speaking skills. After only two one hour sessions, not only did I improve my delivery, but my confidence increased as well. Carl is a very outgoing tutor who is extremely passionate about helping his students. If there is anybody out there who is stressed out about upcoming school presentations, I would seek out Carl's help. He will teach you how to organize and deliver your presentation, no matter the subject.

Carl went above and BEYOND my expectations. I went to him to improve my public speaking as an entrepreneur and what I got from it was not only informative but downright fun. He had me send make a video before the session of myself speaking, and pointed out step by step what I needed to do to improve. Then we went to an auditorium and had me speak out loud. Definitely a brilliant experience and I feel very lucky to have met someone like Carl.

Carl is very engaged, thorough in his approach, very helpful and extremely accommodating for the dates and times of the sessions. He puts all his efforts to support you and extract the best of you in the public speaking. He never misses a detail and work with you to the full achievement of all the pre-set goals. I will continue to work with him because I truly appreciate his help and advise in this process.

I have worked with Lois for the past three month, and she is just AMAZING. I have learned so much from her about public speaking, interview techniques and accent reduction. I am now much more confident about my English and presentation stills. She did an absolutely fantastic job on editing my resume and personal statements. Unlike online editing services (which just correct grammar and punctuation mistakes and typos), she spent time to know my vision and what I really wanted to express. The end results were impressive pieces that were personal and really made me stand out. Lois is intelligent, delightful and inspirational, and I truly enjoy her teaching. I especially love her homemade iced tea in this hot summer. I strongly recommend Lois for her lessons and will definitely continue working with her!

Lois is the most helpful teacher/mentor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. She is flexible about times and has helped me with many different writing and speaking projects. Lois has vast experience in many areas and knows how to make projects and learning enjoyable. She is willing to share her knowledge and insight. I am so glad that I hired her and will continue to go to her for all my speaking, writing, acting, film and academic needs. You will get custom help for a reasonable price- she is an amazing tutor.

I was very fortunate to have worked with Tracy. Public speaking does not come natural to me yet my work does require me to do presentations and product demos. And working with Tracy helped me tremendously. First off, she is incredibly friendly, patient, and empathetic. Her methods are simple but really effective. I used to be really rigid in my previous presentations, but after working with her, I am much more relaxed and I allow the presentation to flow much more naturally. The result is I keep my audience's attention much more. I would say that the improv exercises we did were the most effective. I think anyone, in particular those who are introverted like myself, and find it difficult to present will benefit from her insight and guidance. She is a great person to know and you should consider yourself lucky if you get the chance to work with her.

Tracy is the consummate voice-over coach! When I was getting my VO career going, I didn’t initially realize how lucky I was to have found her—but that quickly changed. The depth and breadth of Tracy's talent and industry experience brought immeasurable value to our sessions, not only with developing my personal skills but with giving me insight as to where I should focus my energy and resources. She made me feel comfortable when I was unsure of myself, provided excellent imagery in her instruction, was accessible and flexible in terms of scheduling, and was eminently generous with her knowledge and advice. She also helped me put together an awesome, professional commercial demo. And—bonus!—Tracy is an absolute delight as a person: kind, funny, smart. I highly recommend her!

I actually hire Tracy to work with my 17 year old daughter who finds it very hard to speak in class. They worked together for two hours and my daughter came away with some very clear and important insights into herself about why she gets so nervous. Tracy gave us a simple program to continue with. Highly recommend for this purpose.

I have been working with Creativity Muse since becoming a registered Marriage and Family Intern. I have attended 5 different workshops all of which have helped in the process of me getting licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist. The courses I have taken have been impactful in starting a healthy habit of self-care. I appreciate the lovely spaces, feeling of freedom, encouragement, and general sense of love and support that I have gotten from every class I have attended. I continue to utilize the skills learned daily. I am excited about taking the marketing course as I am working towards starting my own private practice.

I’ve had multiple five-star experiences with Vivian and CreativityMuse. First, as a creativity coach, she really helped bring me out of my head and opened my horizons. Later, I took her public speaking workshop, which prepared me for a big job interview. I can’t recomend her enough. She is worth every penny and then some.

Vivian was very good at giving me exercises that challenged me to break out of my shyness. Through her encouragement and reassurance, I was able to break out of my comfort zone. Although public speaking is still a challenge I've gained more confidence from taking the CreativityMuse workshops.

It’s been one of my all time dreams to learn how to sing. Once I came across Paul, I knew for a fact he was the man to teach me. He takes the time to get to know you first before anything and makes sure that your seeing results within the first session, even if it’s as small as learning how to control your breathing properly! He gets into the very last detail to make sure your satisfied with his lessons. Paul is a really amazing voice coach. He’s able to really help someone like me who has had no professional teaching and help me, on the first day, to learn how to control my breathing and opening up my voice. He really takes the time to make sure that you understand what he’s trying to teach you. He makes every accomadation possible as long as your serious to learn. Just like me I was very serious to learn and he made sure I was satisfied or saw something different in the way I first started out in singing. I highly suggest anyone whose willing to learn how to sing to learn from Paul.

Going into my lessons with Paul, I had no idea what to expect. I'd never had voice lessons before and my voice had been an area of insecurity for me my whole life. Thankfully, Paul coaches in a way that put me,a novice, at great ease. Even after just two lessons with Paul, my acting coach noticed a difference in my vocal quality. I was able to realize how I had developed a habit of incorrect breathing and posture and how it was effecting my every day life. He not only provided me with greater skill as a performer, but with better overall habits for speaking and carrying myself in day to day life.

I have been training with Paul over piano and voice, and I have improved significantly under his training. He has a vast amount of knowledge ranging from vocal placement to incredible knowledge about music and many other career guiding influences. He is very supportive and always wants you to succeed, and will help you figure out things in a fun respectful and professional way. I have learned so much from Paul, and I appreciate his love to teach and his love of music.

I had the great pleasure of having Michael as a speaker for Midweek Connection. He was a speaker I had heard at an different event aimed at folks looking to find work in a down economy. He is a very engaging speaker that shared easy to use strategies for creating ways that improve and enrich people's personal and professional lives. He talked about finding your true passion and doing what it is you were meant to do with your life. From starting your own business to getting hired at the company of your dreams Mike was right on point with his advice. He is very friendly and helpful, but most of all he is a true Professional. He takes the time to understand your needs and help you create strategies to take your life and business to the next level. I heartily endorse Michael and his awesome company Coach with Mike.

Brought most of my team to hear Mike speak and I am so glad I did! Mike delivered a presentation that was powerful, fun and full of great content. Our Company asked him to create a custom presentation for us and he took the time to talk to company leadership, learn about our company and the people who would be there. Mike created something that was so relevant, interesting and strong that we asked him if we could keep his outline and make it part of our regular team training! Loved every minute of dealing with him, a true professional! Steffan Alons, Akamai Innovations

I've had the pleasure of hearing Richard speak in two different venues. The first was a standing-room-only ballroom and the second was an intimate workshop for eight people. In both settings, Richard delivered a thought-provoking, actionable, and incredibly insightful experience. Richard is an amazing storyteller, whose heartwarming anecdotes and personal stories work together to convey an authentic and impactful message. He is adept at taking a participant's individual experience, no matter how narrowly focused, and connecting it to a larger insight that is transformative for everyone in the audience. I have had the opportunity to see numerous high profile speakers in my career, and Richard is truly a standout. I'd jump at the opportunity to hear him speak or participate in one of his workshops again.

Richard and Chiarra were absolutely amazing. Our audience was mostly college students but they were able to draw in the audience members very powerfully and spoke with true passion. Many people approached me after the event and was telling me that it was ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL for them to get their info NOW. Once again, our pre-health organization, Delta Epsilon Mu, really enjoyed it and we look forward to working with you and Chiarra in the future. Thank you.

Right from the first lesson, we knew that Nicolette was an amazing and very special instructor. She is a nurturing, experienced and enthusiastic teacher for our 12 year old daughter. Her breadth of knowledge about musical theater and performance is awe inspiring, as each lesson goes far beyond the mechanics of voice. She covers stage presence, acting tips, and every facet of what it means to be a performer on stage, which awakens the confidence in her student's abilities. She thoroughly prepared our daughter to be the lead in "Mary Poppins" at the Madrid Theater in Canoga Park. Our daughter could not have achieved th without Nicolette's outstanding guidance. Thank you so much, Nicolette!

I have always been interested in taking vocal lessons, and decided to try it out with Nicolette. I have been taking NIcolette's Vocal classes for the past 8 weeks, and it has tremendously improved my singing ability as well as my confidence in speaking in general. I have learned several different techniqes and new warm ups that have done wonders for the sound of my voice. Nicolette is an extremely talented vocalist and is very patient, making things fun and easy to learn. I am very happy that I am taking classes at Mesmerize Studio and have just enrolled for 4 more weeks. I highly recommend Nicolette and Mesmerize Studio

My daughter was in the Conejo Valley Youth's 'Midsummer Nights Dream'. I am in awe of the result: youth speaking Shakespeare's English as naturally as their own. Mary directs scenes from the play, and artfully casts the kids in several roles. After one scene is rehearsed, it is run again with a different cast. The youth build their character from the experience of seeing it performed as well as from their own interpretation. The masterful process is intuitive; all the kids know is that they are having fun with each other.

Mary is the consummate theater professional. I have worked with her on many productions, working with adults and with children. Her inclusive manner and thorough understanding of stagecraft is like magic as she works with any cast. She guides the cast to make the lines get up and walk! And the actors love it.

Chanti Niven and Desiree Luethy do not just teach how you can speak better, express yourself more effectively, use your voice correctly, affect people with your words, read and understand body language (just to name a few), but they teach you how to find your unique and individual voice in this world. Yes, you will definitely become a better speaker and be more comfortable in your own skin, but you will also discover an immense pool of inner strength that you might've not thought existed before. They will show you the way to discover your heart's purpose, that which is the most important and most fulfilling message you - as a human - can share with the world. I have personally NEVER seen people grow so fast as they do in these classes. When in the first class, a shy teenager mumbled her name in front of the group and moved her body in nervous ways, by the fourth class, that same teenager held a confident speech that not only inspired everyone in the room but held them completely captive with her presence and delivery. And that was not just a rare case. I have taken several classes already, and I always had the privilege to see this kind of growth in each and every one of the participants. Always. Chanti Niven and Desiree Luethy's classes are not just speaking classes, but growth classes. Personally, I am still in awe of what I was able to accomplish in just a few courses. I am indeed speaking and expressing myself on a higher level, but I have also come to fall in love with public speaking and it is now an active part of my life. And that my business improved since I have been taking their classes, is a welcome side effect, as well. If I would continue to list more wonderful things about Chanti Niven and Desiree Luethy, I would sit here all day, so, if you're still in doubt, I would like to tell you that if you have ever considered investing in yourself, these courses will bring you such a great return you can't even begin to imagine.

I am so glad I connected with Catherine for my public speaking concerns because she made all the difference in the world in helping me gain confidence, connect with the audience and the content of my speech. In fact, I originally needed help in speech content and my delivery in order to get a promotion I passed up awhile back, due to my lack of speaking skills. Because of Catherine’s insight to motivation, and her skill in determining a person's development of content suited to my specific topics, I made a huge impression on my colleagues and apparently my supervisor in the accounting office I work at. Many thanks, Catherine, to your patience and guidance to set me apart from all the others with my unique personality in speaking and presenting. And now, I have tremendous confidence! Kimberly W.

About

After receiving my masters from NYU Graduate Acting, I worked as an actor in television, film, and theater in NYC while also teaching scene study at the undergraduate and graduate level. Students of mine have gotten into the top acting programs (Yale School of Drama, Juilliard, NYU, etc.) as well as worked across the different mediums. Now in LA, I have turned my practice to private coaching. My main focus, whether working with an actor or someone who wants to get comfortable speaking in front of other people, is the breath. If you can breathe freely, you can speak freely. Then we can bring out you, the best you, the brightest you, and to tell your story. If we are working with you as an actor, we will bring your deeper breath to your work. And if we are working with you for public speaking, we bring your free breath to your voice and speech. Wherever you are in your process, we will bring you to the next level.
