Tracy Pfau never ceases to create beautiful voice work, reaching far beyond my expectations as a producer. Even with difficult, challenging, or sometimes abstract scripts, Tracy is able to read and interpret material in a way that is moving and often quite touching for our audiences. She is dependable and easy to work with, and has incredible range. She’s my favorite voice performer, period.
– Jeff Hull, creative director, n o n c h a l a n c e
Tracy’s vocal magic has graced several of my productions. She performed multiple Japanese voices in my films MEMOIRS OF A TEENAGE AMNESIAC, and she voiced my teenage lead and multiple adult roles in pitch materials for a sci-fi feature film. Tracy even helped me to cast voices and quickly assembled actors as top-notch as herself. I’m looking forward to our next collaboration!
– Hans Canosa, Producer of Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, Replacements.

I have been trying to find someone who can be my coach for public speaking and body language issues. When I met Tracy Pfau and after our first session, I felt that she is the coach that I was looking for the following reasons:
- Understanding my situation
- Triggering my problems
- The welcoming and responding time
- Her passion about what she is doing which helps the client to do better
- Her style for documenting and delivering our meeting after we were done
- I used not to like listening to my voice, but after I met with Tracy and listened to my voice in her studio and the directions she gave me, I enjoyed talking and listening to my voice
- Making me practice in front of her after she gives me the directions which helps a lot
I am very glad that I met and took my sessions with Tracy Pfau, now I feel much better with my public speaking and I have the tools to practice and follow again and again.
Thank you very much Tracy

I have some fun news to share with you – We submitted an audition video for Brody a week ago Sunday. Odd Man Rush is an independent feature film being directed by Doug Dearth. He sent the submission in for the role of the 10 year old version of the lead character, Bobby Sanders. The casting director emailed and said Doug wanted a call back. He nailed it! He Loved Brody’s audition video and said he’s his first choice! We found out today that he got the part!! Thank you SO much for all your help! Brody took all the techniques he learned from you, and applied them in his video. I have no doubt that’s why the director was so taken with it! Thank you Tracy!
– Sara Scharr, mother of Brody (acting student)
To sum it up, I wish I had met Tracy Pfau 10 years ago!

I would highly recommend Tracy. She is a great acting coach. She is very honest in her feedback, which is extremely helpful. Due to her coaching, I have been booked for a commercial and I know more bookings will come. I can’t wait to continue taking coaching lessons by Tracy.
– Juana C.
After a brief flirtation with voice-over some years back, I decided to give it a serious try this year, and getting coaching from Tracy was instrumental in giving me the skills and confidence I needed to move forward. The homework she gave me was challenging and fun, and provided a great overview of the immense variety of voice-over work out there. And our sessions together were both productive and constructive (And just plain-old FUN). As a voice-over veteran, Tracy knows her stuff, to be sure, but what registered most with me was how encouraging and kind she is. She both made me feel good about the work I was doing, and (gently) pushed me to do better. She knows what’s required in the business, and is dedicated to helping you get there.
– Jim Hoffmaster
Tracy Pfau is an unbelievable acting coach, she has an amazingly friendly personality. She is very direct but also very respectful.

She knows the ins and outs of the business and uses that knowledges help prepare students for their own individual goals. She is a great person and an even better acting coach. Tracy is beyond what I expected and I’m so great full for that. It is an honor and a privilege to be working with Tracy Pfau.

Tracy, never cease to amaze. My development as an VO artist has become keen in detail. Tracy has guided me patiently through my frustrations and outbursts to get me to relax and pin point what’s necessary within myself to be natural conversationalist. Tracy has revealed the tricks of the trade. Most importantly how to procure VO jobs without an agent. I’ve had the MOST FUN EVER being coach by Tracy in the 25 years of acting. She listens! And works with you until your flowing and cognitive. Tracy has helped me grow into my signature voice. She knows what works best for you. Tracy is dependable, insightful and trustworthy. Tracy will give you her best as long as you give your best!
I can’t say enough about Tracy but I’ll try to keep it short and sweet. Her work quality is amazing records, edits, & coaches me through my speeches. Always quick to respond at the most for me it was a day later but typically with an hour. She’s always ready at the selected time I’ve never had to wait. Very professional but caring at the same time always makes you feel welcome with a warm positive energy. I recommend her to anyone looking to take the next step in your area of focus mine is public speaking.
I can’t say enough about Tracy. My son has worked with her for several months and we feel so blessed to have found her. She is a perfect combination of professional with a ton of value because she is a working actress, but also warm, compassionate, loving and positive. Tracy truly loves her students, treats them like family and has a sincere desire for them to all succeed. She not only teaches, but gives detailed information and instructions on photogs, demo reels, what acting sites to sign up with, agents to contact, etc. She is a wealth of information and i am forever grateful she is with us through this journey! WE LOVE TRACY!
My son has been working with Tracy for more than 6 months now, and we could not be more pleased. She is very warm, sweet but also firm when working with kids. She is able to convey complicated acting concepts in a straightforward and easy way for a child to understand. My son is auditioning 3 to 6 times per week and has booked many projects since they began together. She has a wealth of knowledge from a long career in entertainment and she will answer every last question you may have to help navigate the crazy life of the actors life. She can help with acting, agents, managers, auditioning, resumes and everything else you need to know! Give Tracy a try and you will not be disappointed.
I’ve worked Tracy over the last few months on public speaking not only is she professional and a wealth of knowledge but she is also very welcoming and willing to go the extra mile for her clients. Which can be a difficult combination to find. Tracy has a way of encouraging me in the areas I need help while reminding me of my strengths all at the same time. She’s always on time, doesn’t charge extra when I’m running behind and quick to respond when I reach out for a same day appointment or schedule one further out. I absolutely recommend Tracy if you’re looking to grow in any area of her expertise with guidance, professionalism, & continued encouragement.
Tracy Pfau was an excellent Coach! I found her through Thumbtack and couldn’t recommend her more highly. She helped me with a very specific dialect I needed for a role. The director thought I was from that country! Thanks Tracy Pfau!
I actually hired Tracy to work with my 17 year old daughter who finds it very hard to speak in class. They worked together for two hours and my daughter came away with some very clear and important insights into herself about why she gets so nervous. Tracy gave us a simple program to continue with. Highly recommend for this purpose.
I have the highest praise for Tracy! Having worked with many coaches in LA and else where I can truly say she has been the best and most thorough educator in the VO Biz I’ve ever worked with. Because she is a working voice actor herself she is on top of the trends, mainstays and understands what is needed to have a viable VO career. Tracy guided me through the in’s and outs of the biz and showed me the tools needed to succeed. Most importantly she has boosted my confidence in regard to my own talents and abilities. I am indebted to Tracy for helping me to realize dream.
– Jackie Brewer.
Tracy has been an invaluable asset for me in helping me get my voice over career off the ground. She provides detail oriented craft coaching and individually tailored career mentoring to an extent which well exceeded my expectations. She truly cares about her student’s success! With Tracy’s step by step guidance, I have set up a professional quality in home studio, secured agency representation, and started booking. Thanks to her my confidence as a voice actor is at an all time high, and I feel I’m becoming the caliber of professional you must be if you’re to succeed in this extremely competitive industry.
– Chuck Hendron.
As many times as I’ve worked with other coaches, and there have been many, no one has matched the thorough understanding of the voice over business. As a working voice over artist herself, Tracy stays on top of the current trends and mainstays while guiding you through the necessary work needed to get you on top of your VO game. Tracy is so easy to work with. Most importantly she has boosted my confidence in my abilities to realize my goals even beyond what I thought was possible. I can’t recommend Tracy enough. She’s a gem!
I was very fortunate to have worked with Tracy. Public speaking does not come natural to me yet my work does require me to do presentations and product demos. And working with Tracy helped me tremendously. First off, she is incredibly friendly, patient, and empathetic. Her methods are simple but really effective. I used to be really rigid in my previous presentations, but after working with her, I am much more relaxed and I allow the presentation to flow much more naturally. The result is I keep my audience’s attention much more. I would say that the improv exercises we did were the most effective. I think anyone, in particular those who are introverted like myself, and find it difficult to present will benefit from her insight and guidance. She is a great person to know and you should consider yourself lucky if you get the chance to work with her.

Tracy has helped me understand VO copy, clearly. Reinforces key points throughout coaching sessions before moving to next segment.Tracy is a confidence builder that’s helped me see and connect to the nuances of self and copy. Tracy is fun, insightful and introspective. An expert at the craft.

Tracy Pfau has helped my daughter with British Accent for Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins, the Disney’s Broadway Mary Poppins the Musical. In just four hours, she has taught my daughter a lot of skills to make her sound British. In addition, she coached my daughter the acting part of it as well. Tracy is very professional and my daughter enjoyed the lessons very much. We highly recommend Mrs. Tracy Pfau for dialect and acting coach.
Tracy Pfau was my first acting coach in Los Angeles. Since I’m first a singer, I needed to learn what young actors do at auditions.I learned how to cold read from her and how important it is to be “off book,” I really look forward to Tracy coming to coach me. I’m learning everything I need to be successful in TV, film and commercials.

Tracy is the consummate voice-over coach! When I was getting my VO career going, I didn’t initially realize how lucky I was to have found her but that quickly changed. The depth and breadth of Tracy’s talent and industry experience brought immeasurable value to our sessions, not only with developing my personal skills, but with giving me insight as to where I should focus my energy and resources. She made me feel comfortable when I was unsure of myself, provided excellent imagery in her instruction, was accessible and flexible in terms of scheduling, and was eminently generous with her knowledge and advice. She also helped me put together an awesome, professional commercial demo. And bonus! Tracy is an absolute delight as a person: kind, funny, smart. I highly recommend her!

I’m an Italian translator and conference interpreter. I moved to Los Angeles in April 2015 and I was hoping to find a valid voice coach to improve my spoken English and consequently my job opportunities.
Research was a bit hard at first. Many factors came into play. Then I was lucky enough to meet the delightful Tracy Pfau. I can honestly say working with Tracy was one of the best things that happened to me in my stay in LA.
Tracy is a consummate professional. She gives it all for her students. First she made sure I felt comfortable in my learning environment. Which made me understand immediately how much she cared about her profession.
She was always punctual. She went the extra mile to provide me with material to study and work on, even bringing extra work home herself sometimes. She was extremely patient, she would always grant me some extra minutes to make sure I had understood all the notions. She taught me things I will remember for life and I had been waiting for so long to learn.
Tracy Pfau is a passionate, competent and versatile professional. And she’s a pleasure to interact with as a person. If you are looking for an accent/dialect reduction trainer, I highly recommend that you call her. You won’t regret that 🙂
– Antonio Bacille, Interpreter & Translator of US Television episodics.
Tracy is an amazing accent reduction coach. She is very caring and hard working. Every week she has new material and she will send you recordings of your session and homework the very next day. Very helpful teacher. I can hear my improvement every week.
– Natalie Nastulczykova.
It was a true pleasure working with Tracy. She’s extremely talented and very dedicated to her clients. By showing me how I was pronouncing sentences differently from Americans and practicing with me, she really helped me reduce my (French/Belgian) accent. Now I realize when I am speaking with an accent, even in regular conversations, and it allows me to purposefully work on it. Thank you Tracy!
– Bruno DeNuit.
Tracy really understands dialects and can point out precisely what’s wrong with my accent and how to fix it. She’s also providing very valuable exercises to work at home, so I can work on improving my accent whenever I have time.

During the time of operation of Let The Kids Grow Los Angeles, California 2013-2014. I had the privilege of working with and managing Mrs. Tracy Pfau, she was our head Acting instructor. She had the tasks and duties of working with underprivileged children of the community to help them stay off the streets and into the classrooms. She was able to work with children that possessed some knowledge of acting to complete beginners. She was professional and always uplifting to the children and respected them in a professional and caring manner as if they were her own. She not only taught them the basics fundamentals of acting but she showed them the professionalism and seriousness of the business surrounding a acting career. The ages of the children ranged from 4-17. As this was a after school program she would always be ready with a lesson plan and would not mind helping after hours if needed. I have learned that to be a great instructor you need to first have a great heart and a seriousness to the profession, and Mrs. Pfau is the total package as she is a great instructor and a great mentor and even after the program finished she was still willing to work with the children on a personal basis to really help these children accomplish their goals in the acting profession. I would be more than happy to recommend Mrs. Pfau in any future projects as I do not recommend people unless I really believe in them.
– Gibran Escobar.
Tracy is very pleasant and efficient!
If it’s your voice or an acting class, Mrs. Tracy is an expert in the entertainment industry and she know what it takes to make it.
– Mother of tween actress, Ania.
Tracy Pfau is simply wonderful to work with. I came to her to record a VO demo reel and I could not have been more pleased with the results. I have a terrific reel now thanks to Tracy. She has a very unique ability to identify your strengths as a VO artist and to help you identify a specific voice signature, which is extremely important to know as a voice performer. She is a gifted VO artist in her own right, and you would do yourself a favor to listen to her work on voicebank. I’m certain you will be as impressed as I was.
