  • ABOUT

    Hi, I'm Christine, a voice and accent expert.

     

    I know that whether you are an actor or not, you need a voice that is truthful, authentic, and powerful. A voice that can be heard easily, is willing to stand up for itself, and that expresses your place in the world clearly and directly.

     

    It's my purpose to help people get more connected to their voices. Because I believe that there is power in vulnerability, I believe that a voice that reveals, rather than conceals your heart and mind is a voice of strength, and I believe that strength is compelling.

     

    Whether you are learning a new accent, prepping for a speech, or developing your acting chops, these are the principles I work by. Every session offers the opportunity to develop the clarity and authenticity of your voice, and to share that connection through the words you speak.

     

    I began working with voice and speech over 20 years ago - earning a BFA in Acting, an MA in Voice and Speech, and specialized certification as a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher. I spent 7 years training actors on faculty in the Theatre Performance Program at Humber College, alongside coaching privately through my business. Many of my students and clients continue to do great work on the screen and stage today. Past clients and students are currently acting across all of the major stages in Toronto, and appear on hit shows such as: Grey's Anatomy, Kevin at Work, Saving Hope, and Orphan Black.

  • PRAISE

    Jo-Anne Hill - Public Speaking Client

    I worked with Christine to take my upcoming speech at Cornell University up a notch or two. She worked with me to tap into my energy, my personal passion and even my heart, transforming a good speech into a highly impactful one!

    I highly recommend Christine and will definitely hire her again!"

     

    PRAISE

    Ravi Dhanwani - Accent Reduction Client

    Christine is the best accent modification expert I could have asked for. She's a personable, caring, and goal oriented tutor who has a deep understanding of facial and upper body muscles, and a wide variety of accents. Her keen insights and approaches helped me transform my accent by leaps and bounds. As an unexpected bonus, she helped me to access my more natural voice. Accessing my more natural voice has boosted my confidence (surprisingly so) and I've observed that my interactions with people feel more satisfying and complete. This journey had a profound impact on my voice, accent, and personality.

    PRAISE

    Anastasia Marinina - Actor

    "I love coming every class knowing that I'm going to progress and learn so much. I come out with a little bit more confidence in myself. Confidence in my speech and confidence in my performance. I don't just want to be known for my accent. Learning a general American accent gives me a great variety of roles I can play."

     

     

     

     

    PRAISE

    Nolan Molfetta - Actor

    "I started working with Christine during my theatre training at Humber College. There, she helped me to discover the potential for change and growth in a voice that was locked up from habitual tension and lacked support. Christine is a pleasant, understanding and patient instructor who truly cares about the progress and well-being of her students. She is very in-tune with who she is working with; she can tell what areas are more difficult and her in-depth knowledge of the material allows her to work around what is hassling the student. Every time I travel home from a session with Christine I feel proud about how much I had discovered that day."

    PRAISE

    Jenn Ferris - Actor

    "I've been working with Christine for over a year and have seen large improvements. She's helped me find a voice I never knew existed. Her sessions are very relaxed and a perfect environment to explore and develop your voice. I've also gained such an awareness in my speech that I'm able to speak with a sense of ease."

     

     

     

    PRAISE

    Kendall Nelson - Actor

    "Christine Berg has significantly aided my voice-over career. First and foremost, she worked with me to neutralize my regional accent when necessary, allowing me to compete for national jobs. Her direction was professional and constructive without advising me to completely lose my authentic, natural voice. in addition, she helped me to better prepare for auditions with valuable exercises, script reading tips, breathing techniques, and vocal health awareness, something that I previously took for granted. I encourage anyone who is serious about enhancing their voice potential to partner with SHINE CREATIVE COACHING.

    PRAISE

    Zoe Huber - Exchange Student

    Christine's class is not only a great class to reduce your accent, but you also learn a lot of tricks to get more confident with the language. I learned that our entire bodies can impact our voices.
