About Me

I have been teaching voice and speech to actors, corporate workers and university students since 2012. I currently lecture/tutor at The University of Melbourne where I help international students achieve better accuracy and fluency in spoken English, build self-confidence and develop effective communication skills.

 

PHILOSOPHY
Speak to be understood.” Students and clients who study with me begin their journey by working on their craft – they will learn how to free their body, breath and voice from poor, unhealthy habits whilst cultivating habits that promote healthy vocal function and effective voice use. They will then learn how to connect voice with speech; to breathe life into the spoken word. The final and perhaps most crucial step focuses on communicating those words to the “other”; the audience, the listener, the spectator.

 

EDUCATION
I hold an MA (Master of Arts) in Voice Studies from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London as well as the Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA). Some of my voice mentors include Patsy Rodenburg, Barbara Houseman, Rowena Balos, Joan Melton, Meribeth Bunch Dayme, Anna McCrossin-Owen and Bill Pepper.

 

THEATRE
As a theatre voice and dialect coach, some of the shows that I have worked on include NEXT TO NORMAL (Pursued by Bear), CLOSER (Loose Canon Theatre Company), THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Ballarat Lyric Theatre Company), OUR HOUSE (University of Melbourne Music Theatre Association), TITANIC THE MUSICAL (StageArt), THE COLOR PURPLE (StageArt), and ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS (Heidelberg Theatre Company).

 

WORKSHOPS
I started running group workshops in Melbourne in 2016 after returning from the UK. Since then, I have run workshops in Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all workshops will be conducted virtually until further notice. I will be running a brand new workshop in 2022 called Free Your Authentic Voice. If you would like me to run a customized workshop for your students or employees, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
