"Crystal is like a one-woman swat team for actors looking to get the edge on their competition. The movement, breathing, acting, and vocal techniques all come in handy when you’re trying to stand out from the crowd.  The Arthur Lessac technique comes to life with Crystal’s expert guidance. No actor should be without the tools Crystal conveys in her technique-rich class. Whether you’re learning to preserve and enhance your voice, to move more creatively, or to add energizing breath to bring spontaneity to the work, you’ll have valuable tools to draw on for years to come".--Janet Wilcox, voice-over artist, producer, author


“Crystal Robbins is one of the few Certified Lessac Trainers in the country and I have been privileged to receive expert training from her that improved my voice and my life. In addition, she has taught in such a way that grounded and improved my own skills as a theatre professor, thus giving me the basics to teach Lessac to the students at my university." Karen Berman, Past President of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education and Fellow of the College of Fellows of the American Theatre

“I hired Crystal Robbins to provide an introduction to the Lessac method, as a part of improving my work as dialect coach. I found Crystal to be that wonderful combination of expertise, imagination and compassion -- this is internal work that is both physiological and psychological, and she was able to speak to both comprehensively, and caringly. The result was I was able to take in this initial introduction to the process very quickly and very deeply. All the best instructors I've ever known have just these two skills: authority of topic, and heart for their students. I was so pleased to have met one more in Crystal Robbins. I recommend her highly.”  Mary McDonald-Lewis, dialect coach

“Crystal provided integrated voice and body work with a group of singers who were performing in the opera of Orpheus and Eurydice by Gluck. She transformed these student singers into physical actors and provided them with a set of enduring tools and techniques to carry them through the production and into the future of their craft. I plan to rehire her as often as possible." Michael A. Mufson, Palomar College Performing Arts Department www.palomarperforms.com

Further, as she is a kind and lovely woman, so did she facilitate a positive, joyful and creative class experience for all her students -- theater majors and mid-career professionals, like me.”  Arlene Hopkins, SMC student
