Lindsay Carretero brings a wealth of knowledge of vocal connection to any rehearsal and or exercise. However, she also immediately brings positive energy to a room. She was an enormous benefit to my actors, through her voice and speech work on my production of Romeo and Juliet. With Mrs. Carretero’s assistance, my actors tackled the stage of 600 audience members on our stage at Dreyfoos, but also at Morsani Hall in front of 2600 Florida State Thespians. The production was selected to be a Main Stage representative to the 2016 Florida State Thespian Festival. My actors came in with a sense of fear of some of their voices, and the text. Lindsay was able to fuse both difficult concepts together and teach my actors how to recognize not only when they were improperly using their voices, but more importantly when their voices were fully connected and engaged with the words. She will benefit those young actors for the rest of their lives. I would be excited to work with Lindsay again on many other productions. I recommend her for any voice and speech exercises, supplemental trainings, and workshops, which just happened to be accompanied by excellent strong actor training. Mrs. Carretero is a professional who isn't afraid to accompany that discipline with energetic, fun and strongly positive reinforcement. - Brad Barfield, Acting Teacher at Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. High School of the Arts

Mrs. Lindsay Carretero has helped me develop and improve upon multiple skills that have had a direct effect on my business performance. I am a “Process and Function" Consultant, my world is extremely fact driven and requires a high set of communication skills. Mrs. Carretero has coached me through my personal goals of proper diction, correct tone, and physical presentation as needed to “actively” communicate in my field. I found the classes with her extremely informative and well balanced. She brings an extremely professional/scientific approach to her work and its outcome is always positive. Her schedule is extremely flexible and the coaching time is of high quality, she is very informative and makes the classes enjoyable. - Miguel Carretero, Professional Consultant

Speech lessons with Ms. Lindsay have improved my children's speech by leaps and bounds! I previously tried 2 different Speech Therapists without hearing improvements from either of my children, ages 4 & 6. About 2 months into lessons with Ms. Lindsay, I began hearing true results for the first time. Both of my children used to struggle with pronunciation and mouth muscle use. But under Ms. Lindsay's instruction, both conditions have improved dramatically. Ms. Lindsay's training and education are the perfect match for my children's needs. - Janet Benson, Mom

I've been onstage a lot, and worked with accent tapes to sound correct. However, nothing could top the help I got from Lindsay when I did 2 roles in 2 accents (the Bird Woman, Cockney, and Miss Andrew, Standard British) in Mary Poppins. She was wonderfully precise, exacting, AND patient in going over the sounds and the changes I'd have to make in my enunciation. Fun to work with and EXCELLENT - that's Lindsay! - Diana Loy, Actor

As a Financial Advisor and Director of a not-for-profit organization public speaking is an essential part of my job. Whenever I feel like I need a "tune up" before presentations I rely on the careful eyes and ears of Lindsay Carretero. Lindsay has been assisting me for the past few years and has had a great impact on the delivery of the good work that we do. Lindsay is a pleasure to work with and doesn't leave the job until you are ready for yours! - Rob Restino, Founder of Pinnacle Financial Advisors & Executive Director at Pinnacle Kids Inc.

I am an Image Consultant intent upon expanding my speaking engagements. Lindsay’s specific training in theater, dance (we danced together) and, most importantly, her masters work with speech and sound formation give her a unique platform from which to coach. I sought her help with my breathing, relaxing my speaking muscles in my face and throat and my phrasing. Lindsay was very attentive. She gave me very specific and individualized exercises and relaxation routines so that I could feel centered and mindful prior to a speaking engagement. The results of our sessions together gave me the confidence and comfort to attack and succeed in my career goals.  I wholeheartedly recommend Lindsay not just as a speech coach but as a bright light in my life. - Andrea Claster Greenspan, Personal Development

A notable testament to Lindsay Carretero's work is what incredibly became a recurring occurrence after performances at a regional production of Mary Poppins where I played Mr. Banks...throughout the run no less than three native speakers visiting the area from the United Kingdom made a point of approaching me after the performance (each on a separate occasion) to inform me that they had thought I too was from across the pond...they were genuinely surprised to find out that that was not the case! Needless to say, I was 'chuffed to bits! - Dominic Raffa, Actor

Mrs. Lindsay Carretero is an amazing teacher who has assisted my Pre-Business IT Academy and Future Business Leaders of America students prepare for Public Speaking competitive events. Due to the expert advise she provided them, they wowed the judges and one of them placed 3rd in the State! Thank you Lindsay! - Deena George, Teacher at Independence Middle School

I had the delight of working with Lindsay during a production of Mary Poppins. As Mrs. Brill, I had to acquire a well-developed accent that reflected my origin, social class, and the time period. Lindsay came prepared to each session with recordings, spreadsheets, and scripts to work with. She is an expert in her field and understands that many people need hands-on exercises to perfect a dialect. Her training in both the USA and London combined with her experience in teaching/coaching in the arts have made her one of the best in her field. I highly recommend her. - Whitney Grace, Actor

I can honestly say that Lindsay is the best acting coach I’ve ever had. Under her coaching, I got into Dreyfoos School of the Arts. Her classes prepared me well for the audition. Her monologue selections are terrific and her direction and guidance are so helpful. She is also calm and reassuring. Lindsay has a awesome way of letting me develop my character on my own and helping me when necessary. Her individual, personalized feedback she has given me in regards to my work is invaluable and, for me personally, incredibly inspiring. I’ve never known a teacher who takes so much time outside of class to continue providing insight and encouragement to her students the way she does. I’m so grateful to have found such an amazing mentor! - Emma Soto, Actor
