Areas of Expertise: Voice, Accent

I have been a professional dialect coach and voice teacher for 10 years. In that time I have worked extensively in Repertory theatre throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as teaching Dialect at a number of drama schools, including RADA where I am at present. I have always been interested in and delighted by voices and an incurable mimic.

It was a desire to develop my own vocal delivery when working as a teacher that really got me started on my current profession. I took several short courses in voice and realised not only how much my own speech had improved, but also that this was what I wanted to do for a living. I then applied for and was accepted onto the Postgraduate Diploma in Voice Studies at the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Having undertaken a vocal journey of your own really helps you to understand the frustrations and concerns of actors who want to change their voices or acquire new dialects. Each situation and personality is different and has to be approached anew. Some people have a very good ear for identifying and modifying sounds, others work well with images or characters, some people are interested in the psychology behind an accent and some people prefer a very physical approach and like to know which muscles are moving and how.

Understanding how people work best is a crucial part of the process for me and helps greatly in achieving and sustaining changes. I also think that the idea of working with a dialect can be daunting to some, so I am always keen to promote positive and supportive working relationship and a sense of play. We don't know what something is like until we try it and this is very truce of accents.

People are often surprised by the changes they achieve by trying out an accent. The way they feel and sound when speaking in this different way releasing a new perspective on text and character.
