"Through the breath work I have learned to trust my intuition. I have never felt more alive.”
Actor (Fringe series regular; Salem series regular)
“I experienced significant improvement upon learning about the breath and breathing. The warm-up exercises/explorations focus me in such a way that I find I am very ready to work. Contrary to popular belief, you can teach an old dog new tricks.”
Actor, Singer (Tony nomination for Ain't Misbehavin')
"I thought I was coming to Saul only to fix vocal problems – but with him, the voice is simply the gateway to a deep, pure connection with the source of creativity. It’s about more than being a better actor - that's barely touching the surface. This work is about uncovering the mystery of being, connection with the self, and the world around you."
Actor (Instinct series regular; Rake series regular)
“If you're willing to go there, Saul can help you access parts of yourself buried or forgotten. Hard Work. Big reward.”
Actor (Dharma & Greg series regular; LA Law series regular)
“I always had breath and vocal problems as an actor, and I never understood how it was deeply inhibiting my work. I could do exercises all day and produce sound, but until I met Saul, I could never produce richness or nuance unless I bumped into it by accident or by luck. It's now become a core part of my work and I only wish I had discovered it sooner.”
Actor (One World series regular)
"There is one word that describes the effect of Saul’s work on the artistic life – revelatory. The way he teaches reaches inside your artistic self and illuminates something that you didn’t even know you had to share."
Actor (Call Me Fitz series regular; Breakout Kings series regular)
“My voice feels bottomless!”

"I was losing my voice consistently for two years and found out I had 2 nodules on my vocal cords. I was terrified I would never speak normally again. Working with Saul changed my life. I haven't lost my voice since and the lessons he teaches go way beyond voice work. I am forever grateful."
Pilates Instructor and Health Educator
“After years of enjoying public speaking, I suddenly developed a paralyzing and inexplicable fear of talking to groups. This was particularly distressing because my job requires daily public interactions and presentations to groups. Fortunately a fellow academic introduced me to Saul Kotzubei. Working with Saul was truly a transformative experience and one of the best personal and professional decisions I have ever made. He gave me my voice and my life back, but most importantly he helped me recover my soul. That’s quite a skill set and I will be forever indebted to this amazing, caring, intelligent, and talented individual.”

I highly recommend Saul for anyone who makes their living speaking in front of others.”
