January Voice Technique Class for Actors
Start the year off right and ready for the pilot season.
The very thing that can and will set you apart from other actors is your voice.
Your voice is the instrument that tells me the subtleties of the character,
Makes me feel something,
Creates connection and reveals vulnerability.
In this next level voice technique course, you will learn:
Exactly how to reveal more of the character through the use of the voice,
How to play all five shades of vocal variety to create a more dynamic performance,
How to step into maximum vulnerability and reveal more levels and layers of the character,
Get rid of patterns and small voice choices that are keeping you from reaching your max potential.
This is a small group course, no more than 6 participants. You will work a lot in this class held in Valley Village on the cusp of Studio City.
Sunday evenings 5:00pm -8:00pm
Starts January 6th and runs for 4 weeks

His clients include: Robert Patrick (Terminator, X Files and Scorpion), Benicio Del Toro (21 Grams, Traffic, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges, Heath Ledger, Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarachy).

Bridgewater also serves as a casting consultant to various A-List directors, network executives, directs and produces as well.Fellow actors: I want to encourage you to take advantage of the upcoming time you can spend with Tracy Goodwin. I have seen Tracy be a key ingredient to actor presence, uniqueness and seen her perform miracles with talent I don’t have the patience for.
I consider her to be the very best in vocal instruction. Vocals, are one of the 3 key ingredients to having a real shot at success in film and television.
She has a unique skill in helping one with good vocals.
I have over 30 years of good fortune and the experience of working with some of the biggest names in film and television.
Over those 30 years, I have come to notice the recurring themes that A-List actors have in common.
The easiest way to strategic advantage in your on-camera craft, is to develop your voice. The voice is something my clients continuously treat as an essential tool and never stop improving or perfecting, as one would a musical instrument.
Tracy will connect you to your “singing” voice. Tracy: calls it finding your “real” voice. Proper vocals show up on camera and the states of relaxation are created as a by-product will help you play with your choices.
All my clients work on their voice. Tracy is my number one choice for showing you how to improve the voice.

“If you are looking for improving your voice just contact Tracy Goodwin now! Trust me, you will appreciate this advice before even your first session ending! Tracy’s work outperforms any voice or public speaking class that I have tried!” ~ Mehrdad
“Tracy’s personal style of teaching and expertise has opened me to exploring my voice and it’s evolution in a whole new way. One of the most intuitive vocal and acting coaches, Tracy has taught me how to expand both my vocal and acting ranges and get rid of limits that so often inhibit an actor. With her expansive knowledge and experience with voice, she not only taught me the techniques, but further helped build my confidence in attaching any script and project with vigor and success. An all-around wonderful teacher and woman.”
Egle Petrailyte, Actress, NYC
“Working with Tracy was an extraordinary experience for me. Not only was she able to work me in on short notice but once we started my session I immediately felt comfortable with her and her teaching style. The fact is, I landed my first lead role in a feature film after working exclusively with her on the project. She brings out the best in me!”
Kyle Grey, Actor
“My voice over career wasn’t progressing as I had hoped. Then I found Tracy, The Red Sweater Lady, and things really started to turn around for me. Tracy is one of those coaches who can inspire you to stretch your performance muscles. She teaches solid techniques that energize vocal ability, which a voice over talent needs for a stellar delivery. Tracy really stands out amongst coaches. Her fresh approach to breaking down copy and vocal technique is truly unique and has helped me tremendously in my voice over performance. I highly recommend working with her one on one, so that she can identify any areas of your performance that need improvement. You will love working with her!”
Lisa Speaks, Voice Over Artist
“Ms. Goodwin is the epitome of a professional educator. Her expertise and passion for helping others is evident in her work.”
Liz Lugo, Educator
“Tracy was a bright spot in a dark tunnel for me when I took her class. I looked forward to it every day, the excitement of what I would learn next to implement in my classroom. And, the best part is, because she had us actually doing the activities I still remember them all and it’s been 7 years. I cannot thank her enough for not only teaching us these things but just being the amazing person she is.”
Heather Hosey, Educator
“I have been taking private accent reduction and voice lessons with Tracy Goodwin for a few months now, and already noticed a big difference not only in the way I speak, but also how other people perceive me. Before starting working with Tracy, I tried two other accent reduction coaches, but got frustrated with the lack of results and complicated methodology. Originally from Russia, I have been living in the USA for about 11 years now, but still have my Russian accent. After starting acting about a year and a half ago I realized that in order to qualify for a variety of roles I needed to learn to speak with Standard American Accent. I met Tracy through an acting coach in a class setting. I instantly liked her gentle and personalized approach, so I decided to try her private lessons. Tracy’s style of coaching is a combination of different techniques focused on a client’s specific needs. She tackles the most obvious problems in one’s speech or accent pattern first, helping to build the correct way into the client’s vocal muscle memory. She does this with a lot of encouragement and support at a pace that is most suitable for each person. I highly recommend Tracy for anyone who wants to improve their voice, accent or presentation skills.”

“Tracy has done an amazing job preparing my daughter for auditions. But, more than that, she has raised her communication skills and confidence which are lifetime skills.”
Dalila Rangel, Mother of Gabi Rangel, American Crime
“I enrolled in Tracy’s class unsure of what I hoped to learn but knowing I wasn’t coming to life in auditions and feeling too-often out of sync with my authentic self. I see now that the voice is a manifestation of both our conscious and sub-conscious minds. Tracy noticed breathing and tension problems that no one had ever called me on before; I can tell that working these things through will mean everything in terms of being able to bring myself to life for the camera. As I work on Tracy’s exercises, I uncover parts of my sub-conscious that have been holding me back, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work on myself at such a deep level.”
Akasha Villobos, Actress
“I had such a fantastic time in Tracy’s class and got a lot out of it. The biggest – yet simplest – issue for me begun to be resolved in only the first class, and I finally started finding my resonance, which was my #1 goal going into the class. Thank you so much!”
Wes Evans, Film Maker, Actor
“ Tracy – It’s time to name a few new Masters, but more importantly currently relevant-Masters, like yourself.
You have a great gift. You glow when you use it and it’s wonderful to see someone our age who connects so well with the young ones like you and has more energy than most everyone in the room. “
Mark Roach, Actor
“Some folks make you feel good just by being around them and Tracy is one of them. Even if I never do anything with acting/voice over, I see how her tools can help me to feel/be more empowered as a human. Not only will you learn lots, you’ll be entertained! And I’m extremely A.D.D. in classroom settings so that’s saying something!”
Suzette Grey, Actress
“I was referred to Tracy by my agent. He felt that my vocal style was limiting my opportunities and a vocal coach could really help. I had always resented the classroom aspect of acting and I know that type of thinking held me back. Tracy understood me and my learning style and shaped a curriculum around what I needed. Right away Tracy began teaching me technical tricks in a way that I could understand and grasp then apply to my audition preparation. I am so luck to have Tracy as part of my team. I feel her support 100%. I know any questions I ask will be answered with an example that I can understand and I have confidence that the whole room can feel when I walk in! Thank you Tracy!”
Andrew Moher, Actor
“My training with Tracy was as informative as it was trans-formative. Her knowledge of how to utilize your voice is so in depth that after only
sessions I could feel a powerful shift in my monologue that came directly
from Tracy’s ability to get me to focus on the choices that I make with my
voice. The notes she gives are extremely personalized and applicable which
allowed me to grow and create in my own space. And her transparency and
keen observations as it relates to pace and audible sounds allowed me to
pinpoint exactly where the vocal adjustments needed to made and still allow
for an authentically connected piece. I can honestly say, that I am a
battle tested and ever ready Tracy Goodwin student for Life!”
Jason C. Louder, Actor
“Tracy Goodwin – thank you for helping me discover my true voice, the power it holds, and the range it can encompass; as well as for helping me realize all I’ve lived is with me at every moment, and anything new can be laid in with practice; and for opening my eyes (or, rather, body) to a whole new realm to explore and of which to be mindful.”
Shelby Graham, Actress
“Tracy has changed everything, it’s amazing!”
