« My work with James was thoroughly successful in achieving my primary goal of improving on dexterity in speech. We worked through several parts of speech in detail, including breath support, jaw release and tongue dexterity. Isolating these aspects really helped me to understand how the voice works and can be adjusted, and gave me the tools to make improvements alone. I use the tools we worked on regularly in my work. I would highly recommend working with James if you have the opportunity. »

Oxford and LAMDA graduate with 13 years tutoring experience. Online accent and voice coach helping you to find clarity and confidence in your voice, leaving your listeners content.

Methodology

My experience in actor training encouraged exploration. Working with voice can require a similar explorative effort, although specific methodology is catered for with the client's specific needs in mind.

Some clients will wish to modify just a few key sounds in the build up to the delivery of a particular speech in order to ensure intelligibility. Others prefer a wider study of potential phonetic adjustments that might increase clarity for any purpose, whether for their job, or for the building of confidence in communication with others.

Whatever the reason, I will always encourage the client to consider carefully what they are hoping achieve from our sessions so as to ensure that the 'uniqueness' of their voice is maintained alongside adjustments made during our sessions.

You will be shown relevant phonetic symbols as a marker for your reference, and will be given exercises to practise specific sounds outside of our sessions. These will be applied to appropriate texts, and, if you are comfortable in doing so, may be further applied to short, unrehearsed conversations in order to encourage natural flow in your delivery.

Experience

I am a professional actor and accent coach who has a passion for helping people find a way to express themselves with confidence.

Having left Magdalen College, Oxford in 2008, I trained at the London Academy of Dramatic Art (LAMDA), graduating in 2013. Alongside voice and accent coaching, I have continued to build my acting career in film and television.

My tutoring experience began in academia, developing into acting and voice tuition for actors and corporate clients alike. I run a company specialising in the sharing of creative skills, in which I lead vocal sessions with attendees to who have often had little to no experience. My latest project saw the development and production of a series of short films for a growing independent estate agents in London.

My work with James was thoroughly successful in achieving my primary goal of improving on dexterity in speech. We worked through several parts of speech in detail, including breath support, jaw release and tongue dexterity. Isolating these aspects really helped me to understand how the voice works and can be adjusted, and gave me the tools to make improvements alone. I use the tools we worked on regularly in my work.

James led myself and a number of others in vocal work in group sessions over a two year period. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and the variety of exercises he called upon to help develop our skills. James designed the nature of his workshops with the general needs of the group in mind, but ensured that each individual received notes specific to their needs. I particularly enjoyed the application of the work to text, which revealed how effective the exercises were when put into practice. I have no hesitation in recommending James.

I recently used James’ service to produce some promotional videos for my company and found his training and tips on presentation to be invaluable in terms of engaging an audience. I am now in a position to put these new skills into practice on a regular basis and have no doubt that my business will expand as a result. His fees are fantastic value for money and I do not hesitate to recommend his services.

James is a highly dedicated teacher. We built a rapport quickly, which made sessions enjoyable and engaging. In our sessions, he was attentive to detail, and took into account my past experience (or lack of) in his field in order to generate a bespoke approach towards my needs. James helped me to feel confident in communicating my thoughts intelligibly with my clients. He intuitively knew how to resolve challenges I faced when dealing with technical aspects of phonetics. I would highly recommend him and have indeed recommended him to others.
