Elissa Weinzimmer is a vocal health educator, presence coach, and the founder of Voice Body Connection. Her work empowers performers, leaders, and speakers to share their authentic voices more fully.
Elissa's unique approach is to share techniques and exercises that help you “hack” your way to a stronger voice and presence. After all, when you understand the mechanics behind how something works, you can practice and habit-shift with deeper awareness. Elissa brings this practical, mindset-based way of teaching to each individual client, as well as to her online courses How Your Voice Works (for singers and voice teachers), How To Have Presence (for leaders and speakers), Vocal Health for VOs (for voiceover actors), Voice Body Kirtan (for those who wish to chant to free their voice), and Vibrant Voice Technique (for those who want to reduce muscle tension and enhance the quality of their voice using vibration).
Elissa’s clients include Broadway stars, major television personalities, politicians, and CEOs. She has led workshops for Equinox, Microsoft, eBay, Instacart, Hillary for America, the Skirball Cultural Center, the Columbia School of Public Health, The Voice Foundation, and the Body-Mind Centering Association.
Elissa holds an MFA in Theatre Voice Pedagogy from the University of Alberta and a BA from the University of Southern California. She is certified in Fitzmaurice Voicework® and Hatha yoga. In 2014, Elissa was the recipient of the Clyde Vinson Award for Excellence from the Voice and Speech Trainers Association.
