“Ellie Devers is a wonderful v-o coach, equipped with a wealth of experience and a deep knowledge of voice acting and the v-o industry. She can diagnose what’s not working for you and offer the right adjustment with a highly effective mix of tell-it-straight clarity and a contagious sense of hope. A few months after I prepared my commercial demo under Ellie’s tutelage, I booked my first job. I recommend Resonate for voice actors of any level of experience or training. Ellie is a pleasure to work with, always professional and funny as hell.”

“At the age of 65 and somewhat retired, I decided to explore an encore career and made an appointment with Ellie Devers. In our first session, Ellie (who sensed my initial nervousness) suggested we just sit quietly for a while and be present. I followed my breath and found my way home. We talked a bit about my background and my as yet unformed intentions. She presented me with a bit of narration to read. I stood up to the microphone and read the copy, listening to my own voice as I spoke the words. When I finished, Ellie smiled and said, ‘You have a good voice, but don’t fall in love with it. Voice-over acting is not about the voice, it’s about the truth.’ Having now worked with Ellie for the past couple of years, I often think about that first encounter, which revealed so much about the way she works with people. She is deeply respectful and attentive to the individuality of her students and steadfastly committed to their growth. She creates a safe space in which she invites the truth to arise from within, a delicate inside-out rather than outside-in process. Honest and direct, she is devoted to the paramount role of any actor: service—to their fellow actors and to their audience. Ellie is a skillful and genuine professional. And, I am happy to say, she is my teacher.”

“I used to be overwhelmed when it came to recording voice-overs. That’s why it is quite literally a miracle that I discovered Resonate. Ellie Devers turned my insecurities into excitement. Ellie’s experience, ease, and encouragement immediately set me straight, and by the end of our first session my confidence was up and I felt ready to conquer the voice-over world. She picked just the right material for me to get noticed and get the edge I wanted in my voice-over reel.”

“Ellie Devers has an innate ability to see the spark of genius in her students. She shares qualities of great directors like Mike Nichols that I have been fortunate to work with: lack of ego, commitment to bringing out the best in others, respect, and a sense of humor. Being a stellar actress and writer herself, she knows the courage it takes to self-express and creates an atmosphere where taking creative risks is easy and fun.”

“Ellie Devers is a terrific voice coach. She taught me how to break down a script, taught me invaluable things about pacing and delivery, taught me how to bring something to my read even before I start recording the first line, and was a huge help when producing my demo. I use the things I’ve learned from my coaching sessions at Resonate on a regular basis. Highly recommended. “

“I am a huge fan of Ellie Devers. Her teaching skills, knowledge, genuine engagement, and expert guidance with helping me find my voice have been invaluable. Working with Ellie was one of the most terrific student/teacher experiences I’ve ever had. Her enthusiasm, acute attention to my particular strengths and weaknesses, her gentleness in steering me toward my best performances, and her terrific sense of humor not only put me at ease but gave me the confidence to record a solid demo tape and begin auditioning for paid work. She also gave me insider’s advice about breaking into the voice-over field. I would highly recommend lessons at Resonate for anyone interested in exploring a voice-over career or improving on skills he or she may already have.”

“Finding the right coach to help me break into the competitive world of voice-overs was an important first step in the process. I am fortunate to have discovered Ellie Devers. Among the many skills I learned from Ellie during our memorable first sessions was the capacity to listen to my own voice with objective discernment, and to apply it effectively to each individual script. With Ellie’s sensitive, insightful guidance, my self-confidence grew and my belief that I might actually be able to do this work did not seem out of reach. Ellie is one of those rare teachers who can impart intelligent, clear direction and helpful criticism without deflating her students’ efforts. She is perceptive, warm, and immensely engaging. I highly recommend Resonate to anyone interested in pursuing artistic voice work of any kind. Ellie provides a safe, relaxed environment for students of diversified backgrounds to cultivate their personal, innate abilities.”
