Voice Coaching for Actors
is one of the three key elements
of being a professional actor
Voice Coaching for Actors gives your voice back to YOU!
Do you want to change something about your speaking voice?
Do you have issues with:
– Connection – this can be in terms of voice, body, thought, imagination, text or character.
– Pace & Speed – are you speaking too slowly? Are you rushing?
– Inflection, Intonation & Prosody – Is there something about the tune of your voice that you want to work on?
– Do you need help with complex dramatic text like Shakespeare?
– Are you trying to record a self-tape but have no one to read with?
– Need to work on an accent for an audition or role?
– Struggling to be heard in the theatre?
– Always getting the same directorial notes?
“But I did voice at drama school…”
Just because you’ve done it once (perhaps some time ago!) it doesn’t mean you’re done. Learning about your voice & practising is just like going to the gym.
Voice is muscular…so if you’re exercising your body, you should really exercise your voice!
“I didn’t go to drama school, so I have too much to learn!”
It’s never too late to start learning. Some actors don’t even start training until they’re in their 40’s or 50’s!
Make some time for learning your craft and being able to do the things you need to be able to do in order to be a professional actor.
Voice is just accents, right?
Voice can include any of the following:
– Use of text
– Understanding language
– Diction and Articulation
– ‘Projection’ and ‘Being heard’
– Character Development
– Connection to Truth
– Radio Acting
– Microphone Technique
What happens in Voice Coaching for Actors?
The role of a voice coach in professional theatre varies according to the project.
It’s not about sounding a certain way, it’s about you developing YOUR own voice so that you don’t imitate someone else, but are authentically YOU.
