For many performers, their voice is the tool of their trade, yet they may have received little or no training in not only how to use their voice safely but how to maintain a healthy voice that stands them in good stead throughout their career.
For those of you who are performers of some kind, I can help with breath support, projection and resonance, combining vocal stamina and flexibility, and pace of delivery. For actors, I can assist with preparing for auditions, learning or improving an accent, developing character voices and managing your voice for a longer run eg. stage work. If you are a voice actor I can also advise on vocal care for more extreme character work such as that required for animation and gaming. The work we can do together is entirely tailored to your requirements.
Individual coaching sessions by necessity always include a refresher on the anatomy involved in voice and speech production and on how to care for your voice. As an actor it is imperative to monitor your own daily vocal qualities, not just those of your character voices.
If you are a singer, I can work with you to ensure that your speaking voice provides the best foundation for your singing voice (please note, I’m not a singing coach and don’t provide singing lessons).
Sessions are held at The Albany Centre; however, if you have access to a venue more relevant to where you are performing, we can discuss meeting there (with the permission of the venue).
