Doriane Elliott ROCKS. As a Teacher the techniques, skills and discipline Dor passes on are invaluable. They are great tools for beginners in the VO field as well as for those of us who have been doing it a long time but are in need of a tune up in order to keep audition & booking reads fresh. Dor just produced and directed the updates to all three of my VO reels and I couldn't be happier or prouder of them. I feel totally armed with my new reels in my pocket. Working with Doriane is hands down the best thing I have done for myself (& my booking rate!) in years.

I used to poo-poo commercial and vo auditions. I thought they were a crapshoot--either you were right or you weren't. I assumed that there was NO technique involved. Dorianne brilliantly proves otherwise. Her clear and inspired technique has not only made my commercial work more successful, it has helped me in all of my other acting work.
Not only does Doriane know how to link your work together to make an amazing, effective reel with a competitive edge; she is a truly amazing person and a delight to be around. I feel lucky to know and work with Doriane. Everyone should be so lucky! xo

Doriane, you are a rock star of the VO world. Ms. Elliott has a brilliant was of making such a delicate craft so easy to understand. Not only is she an amazing musician, she incorporates her slue of skills to guide you through a step by step process of how to bring Copy to life. I booked my first VO gig thanks to her and use many of her teaching in other facets such as on camera and on stage. One lesson and your hooked.
Where to begin about Dor? Flawless and clear technique, impeccable eye and ear for copy, masterful demo-creator, unbelievable commitment to her students in and beyond the classroom, and a remarkable human being to boot. She is one of those amazing women who, whatever she does, she does well. If you are looking for a Commercial and Voice Over coach with the perfect balance of encouragement, technique, and honesty, you've found her. Want proof? Watch TV, listen to the radio- yup, they're probably her students. Under her guidance, I have a terrific demo and a solid, dependable technique that brings me joy and gets me work. What more could you ask for?
Thanks so much for helping me get my reel made! I'm very excited about it! It has been such a terrific experience studying with you. I really appreciate your dedication and attention to all your students, and your boundless enthusiasm for supporting their work. So thankful that our paths have crossed :)
Doriane is simply amazing. She's one of the best no-nonsense, butt-kicking, loving, and supportive teachers out there. She put together an awesome reel for me and has helped me start to take my career in voiceover to the next level. I cannot thank her enough!
Doriane has placed dozens upon dozens upon DOZENS of her students with agents of the smaller boutique size to the top EIGHT union commercial agencies in NYC.
She also has gotten both commercial and legit management for over 100 of her clients, and the numbers keep on growing by week. She not only teaches her students her technique, but she takes on their careers as well. And if she feels she cannot place them, she simply will not take them on.
She has become a fierce career facilitator for everyone who walks through her doors, and makes sure that her clients are completely prepared to be viable, working actors; she makes them literally be "no-brainers" when it comes to agents WANTING to represent them.
