You may want to concentrate on:
How to use your voice
Acting Through Song
Or any number of other areas of singing & performance.
Coaching for Actors
Do you want to change something about your speaking voice?
Pace, speed, inflection, intonation?
Do you want to prepare for an acting role, learn an accent, rehearse a self-tape?
Do you want to change your accent?
Many people come to work on their accent, whether that’s wanting to speak ‘BBC English’ or learn an accent for a part.”
