« I won a free, one-hour tuition with Michelle. As I'm a novice, I was a little apprehensive but Michelle soon put me at my ease. After a chat, she took me through some exercises and gave me some, I'm sure basic, pointers on how best to use my voice, and deliver my lines. I really enjoyed the hour with her. Following the lesson, I was keen to pass on her details to the drama group I attend, and I was happy to recommend her to them... I came away with a few very helpful pointers to take me forward, probably to another lesson in the future... DG Jones. »

Michelle has helped with several aspects of my vocal performance, including accents, accurate diagnostics, patient assistance and professional approach. Thoroughly recommended.

Michelle helped me with several aspects of my voice. I had acquired some bad habits as an actor and teacher. Michelle identified mannerisms that affect my voice quality and gave me exercises to correct them. Michelle assisted me with script analysis for auditions, including Shakespeare and specific accents. As a result I have won parts in plays and I have fulfilled an ambition to go to drama school.

I highly recommend Michelle for audition preparation, accent learning and voice maintenance.
