Dialect Coaching for Theatre & Film

I am a voice and dialect coach offering voice support, text support, dialect designer and/or, dialect coach on plays, musicals, operas, television, film and radio.

-my experience with language makes me a quick study,

-my training as a classical singer affords me an excellent ear,

-my love for creative teaching gives actors the opportunity to receive detailed, applicable feedback. 

After my education as a classical singer and my experience as an actor I trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London where I earned an MFA in Voice Studies. From there I served as a voice/text/dialect coach at RADA, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Univeristy of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, and now the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska Repertory Theatre.

If you are in need of voice/speech/dialect assistance at your theatre, company or for a specific production, please contact me at the number listed below.
