Liz Eckert is a performer and a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher. She grew up in an English-speaking household but found greater freedom and confidence as a speaker in her early French classes and school plays. This led her to earn her BA in Theater and French from Connecticut College, culminating in a prize-winning bilingual honors thesis performance. At Columbia University’s MFA Acting Program, she studied with world-renowned voice instructor Kristin Linklater and Andrea Haring, Associate Director of the Linklater Center for Voice and Language. She has been teaching voice and speech in New York for ten years, and is happy to return to HB Studio.
