Authentic Voice Academy

Sale ends December 4th at 10pm Eastern Time!

Our best deal right now is the bundle of our two signature courses. More info here.

This legacy version of Authentic Voice Academy that we’re taking off the shelves was taught live in 2021. We're offering it now as an independent study option. When you purchase the course you’ll have access to over 18 hours of course recordings to work through on your own time.

This most recent iteration of the course contain more hours of material than anything we have offered or will offer again. On December 4th, at 10pm Eastern Time, we will stop selling this previous version of the course. The new version of Authentic Voice Academy will not be available again until late 2024 or early 2025.

All students who purchase this independent study legacy version of the course will be invited to repeat the upcoming online version of Authentic Voice Academy for no additional course fee.

If you’re interested in and/or have been waiting to engage with this material, we highly recommend that you purchase now. Not only will you be getting a significant discount, but you’ll have access to archival footage that future students will never get to see.

For an overview, refer to the full class curriculum on the course page. Each class session or Q&A call is 90 mins long, and they are all pre-recorded. So you'll have 18+ hours of content at your fingertips the moment you enroll.

By the time you are finished working through the course, you'll have at least one video you feel proud of (if not 20!!), and an understanding of how to make more content featuring you that you love.

For more information, including the class by class curriculum, please consult the course page. When you're ready to enroll, select your payment option to the right, and I'll see you in class soon!

I'd love to have you in class!

Have questions about the course? I've got answers!... 

How is this different than any other public speaking class I could take?

We're gonna study your nervous system. Like, in a dorky neuro-science way. I believe that when you understand how the machine that is you really works, you can use it better. So this class is going to go way beyond "Be sure to talk slow, stand tall, and smile." You are not going to be given a list of do's and don'ts. Instead, you'll create an intimate personal map of your own nervous system and the habits you want to change, so that you can shine as your most confident, authentic self. 


Are there discounts available? 


If you are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or a Person of Color) please use the coupon code BIPOC to receive 30% off your tuition.

If you are an artist and need financial support to make this program accessible, we offer a 25% discount for creatives. To qualify, please email [email protected] with the following information: Your name, where you reside, and a short (1-2 paragraph) statement about your creative practice and how you believe that this course will benefit you and your artistic development.

If you live in a so-called developing country and would like to join the course, we offer economic scale discounts that bring tuition to 6 payments of $19/month. To qualify, please email [email protected] with the following information: Your name, the country in which you reside, and a short (1-2 paragraph) statement about why you'd like to take this course and how you believe it will benefit you.


I'd prefer to work with Elissa privately. How can I do that?

In order to work with Elissa one on one, you need to be enrolled in one of her courses or programs. After purchasing either or both of these courses, you’ll be given the option to buy additional Office Hours. If you have questions about these Office Hours or working with Elissa privately, please email [email protected].


I already own Authentic Voice Academy; do I need to purchase this one?

Nope! If you already own Authentic Voice Academy, you have access to it for the rest of time (or anyway, as long as we can promise time and the internet will last!), as well as to future online versions of Authentic Voice Academy.

However, if you own a different Voice Body Connection course that is not Authentic Voice Academy, then we recommend purchasing it now!


What does “Independent Study” mean?

Independent Study means you'll be working through the course recordings (live-taught and recorded on Zoom in 2021) on your own. You can submit home-play in the course portal, as you go along, This home-play will be reviewed by Elissa or another Voice Body Connection Instructor.


When will Authentic Voice Academy happen live again?

The honest answer is, we don't have it scheduled yet. However, we imagine it will happen again in late 2024 or early 2025. If you are eager and standing by to take or repeat Authentic Voice Academy live, we'd love to know. Email [email protected]. When you purchase this course now, you will be invited to take that class for no additional cost.

We are also working on a future long-term version of Authentic Voice Academy, and when that is available, you will have access to that, as well. Again, for no additional cost.
