"Talking and eloquence are not the same: to speak; and to speak well are two things. There is all the difference when having something to say and HOW to say something the right way." The various courses devised (below) help you focus on: becoming a confident communicator; developing your vocal quality (Elocution); correcting speech impediments; (diction, stuttering, mumbling, cleft palates, nasality, tone faults etc.); and reducing your accent. Learn an Accent or you can delve deeper into being a Radio Presenter; a Voice-Over artist; and/or Public Speaker; all the while still understanding HOW to communicate on all levels (corporate, radio, film, TV, theatre and everyday). Why not learn the ancient art form of Singing?

WHAT MAKES OUR ACTING COURSES SO DIFFERENT?
My main reason for devising these two courses is that I wanted to refine and highlight what actors today are utilizing most when acting, both for film, television and theatre. From all my years of study and working in the field I have found that with careful observation a pattern emerge and these are the skills which I focus on. This process has been feasible, because my students are being featured in local/overseas films, television soaps, and commercials; presenting on television and radio. I also offer onset coaching.
