I was born into the tradition of theatre, opera and performing and it remains a great passion. I have spent years training my own voice, and have enjoyed over 30 years as a professional actor, singer and recording artist. I have had the privilege of working with some of the biggest names in the business and have been lucky enough to have played at top venues regionally and in London’s West End theatres. During the nineties I retrained as a voice and accent coach on the UK’s foremost vocational course for professional voice teachers Central School of Speech and Drama. The ethos behind my work is drawn from a diverse background of teaching influences including Cicily Berry, Kristan Linklater, Michael Macallian, Jo Estille, The Alexander Technique and Roy Hart. Although my teaching keeps me incredibly busy I still find time to pursue my singing career, performing an extensive Jazz repertoire. I am also a member of these world renowned organisations:
People that Dee has worked with include Stockard Channing, Azure Skye, Matthew Goode, Sean Brosnan, Glenda Jackson, Oliver Reed, Timothy West, Prunella Scales, Jonathan Pryce, Elaine Paige, Trevor Nunn, Stephen Sondheim, Benny Andersson & Bjorn Ulvaeus, Cameron Mackintosh/The RSC, West Yorkshire Play House, Birmingham Rep, Babel Theatre Co and Jericho Productions to name but a few.
