People so often mask themselves, that what is real becomes difficult to discern;
Truth swirls and seeks its own port of entry.

Demo Production and Recording
To really show off your talents, you've gotta have a demo! For acting, it's film; for singing and voice-over, it's a good audio presentation. We combine digital and analog technologies to provide you with that necessary edge, from an original song to a commercial voice clip, we make it fast and easy.
Check out a handful of demos from our talented students!
And now, a few words from our students!
"Before my climb as an actress, Doug was my vocal coach. He has been a close friend of the family since my first acting jobs in my teens. He is a friend, and a professional."
~ Tamala Jones, Actress [Castle, The Tracy Morgan Show, and For Your Love]
"Your positive influence, motivation and teaching have given me the vocal skill I've been looking for. What you've taught me about pitch, intonation and vocal articulation has given me a greater understanding on how to approach vocalizing with style and confidence."
~ Warner Young, Creation Entertainment
"I cannot say enough in speaking to the expertise of Mr. Anthony. When I first began going to him for vocal and public elocution training, I lacked the necessary skills and confidence to address audiences; I would shrink away from public speaking."
~ Stephen J. Scanlan, Partner, Domino’s Pizza/Tri-John Pizza Inc.
"Doug teaches to not only strengthen yourself vocally, but mentally and spiritually as well. His holistic approach to vocalizing is a metaphysical marriage of mind and matter incorporating fundamentals of the vocal ABC's"
~ Barbara J. Laufer, Lead Vocalist of "Lesser Gods"
"Your thoughtful suggestions and exercises have resulted in improvements to my vocal articulation that has exceeded my expectations!"
~ Jim Carr, Manager, Software Engineering, Kaiser Permanente
"It is obvious to me that you are doing something right!!"
~ Felix J. Washington, CEO, Chereese Records and Productions
"I sought instruction during a period when time was of the essence. I had the talent, but I lacked the confidence and focus needed to be the front person."
~ Holly C. Imler, Administrative Specialist, City of Carson
"Thank you so much for your patience and understanding for a fellow actor who is trying to make his way in the world in two completely different careers!"
~ Wright Sublette, Director of Technical Support, Earthlink
"Some of the skills you have taught me, such as ‘conviction’ and ‘vocal pattern variation’ have enabled me to have the confidence and ability to communicate with others in a more professional manner. My social life has also been affected by the wisdom you shared with me as your student. My ablility to ‘strike up a conversation’ has improved, as well as my overall level of self-esteem!""
~ Carmen M. Cross, Senior Pricing Analyst, Parsons Engineering
"My original intent was to hone my skills in voice-over. Did I enjoy the lessons? Yes! I looked forward to each session knowing that I would learn something new that would enable me to accomplish what I set out to do. As a result, I became an accomplished public speaker."
~ John Hoffman, President, Hoffman and Associates
Spectrum Vocal Dynamics™
Our portfolio features a variety of projects and services
Spectrum Vocal Dynamics™ is a methodology based on the age-old Chakra system.
It incorporates the seven colors [red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and white]
in the visual light spectrum, hence the method's name.
Relative to vocal usage and dynamics, the colors present as follows:
Red = Fortissimo
Orange = Forte
Yellow = Mezzo-Forte
Green = Mezzo-Piano
Blue = Piano
Purple = Pianissimo
White = Triple Pianissimo
Bearing in mind that vocal dynamics are not limited to singing, this system can
be used theraputically to either "strengthen" or "finesse" vocal delivery--be
it to enhance singing ability, oration [public speaking], voice over or theatrical
presentation. There is no limit [or ceiling, as it were] to how a student may enhance their vocal ability by utilitizing these methods.
Looking for a Producer? Vocal Coaching? A new voice demo? We've got you covered!
