It also includes mindfulness exercises, stretching, yoga and Pilates based movements, vocal warm ups and exercises ( breathing, resonance, projection, articulation) and text work (text analysis, speech, communication skills ).
Ideal for people and professionals who have an extensive use of their voice on their daily activities such as teachers, business professionals, podcasters, youtubers, directors and anyone with and interest in their voice.

Perfect! Veronica is an excellent tutor, knowledgeable, patient and knows how to guide you. She is structured in her lessons. I recommend her without any doubt
Keira is an amazing student. Very focused, willing to learn and discover new things. Her commitment to self-discovery and self-development is wonderful. Very friendly and easygoing too! It was a pleasure working her.
Veronica is an amazing teacher that guides an actor preparation for a role in a very holistic way: by facilitating breath and voice technique, working on script analyses, and the delivery of those lines.
I am very wary of acting teachers and their methods but I was pleased to find Veronica to be very thorough, specific and knowledgeable in all aspects of acting methods. Apart from the fact that she has trained in teaching acting, she is also very patient, a great listener and communicator. I recommend her classes, online and in person. She takes into consideration your ideas, opinions and views. She has a vast knowledge and love of theatre. Her exercises are exciting and I always look forward to the next class. Great for before attending drama school, after drama school or if you are curious about acting or theatre in general.
Verônica is an amazing acting teacher! I have worked with her for over two years now, and she is incredibly dedicated to all her students. Verônica has helped me understand the importance of breaking down a scene and script, as well as creating detailed character work. The Scene Study classes are very well though out and I love how they're mix between the much needed analyzing and practical work of breaking down scenes and monologues. Besides the scene work, Verônica has also helped me find and work on my tools as an actor in such a comfortable environment, where it's easy to let yourself be vulnerable and to open your mind. She is great at seeing what each student needs help with and is always there if you need support or have any questions!
Go for it! She explains it in a crystal clear way, making you gain a valuable body, voice and breath awareness, which you can apply on your daily life. It's also important to highlight Veronica's engagement on making you understand each detail of what is explained. I highly recommend.
Veronica is amazing!
I did 10 classes with her, to help me with my breathing problem.
Not only she works with breathing exercises, but as well she goes to the roots of the issue.
Vocal exercises, phonoaudiology exercises with some yoga poses twist, helped me to improve my breathing, and with a better breathing, it improved my lifestyle immensely.
Thank you Veronica!
Veronica is one of the GOAT's in london acting teaching!! I started going to her in person scene study classes which helped me maintain my craft whilst also working on pieces I had for auditions which thanks to Veronica I was able to book. Recently I have been attending her weekly online group class which has been absolutely invaluable to keep my skills sharp over the quarantine.
