« Perfect! I worked with Michelle for 10 sessions focusing on voice resonance and articulation. Trained in speech and drama and experienced in acquiring different dialect herself, Michelle very well understands how things work and how to help enrich voice and move pronunciations to the target sounds. I appreciated that she tailored every session to my needs. After working with her, I can notice that my consonants are sharper and vowel sounds are much more accurate. The best thing is that I now know how to work on them myself as these things take time and practice. I would strongly recommend her! »

Hi. I'm Michelle and I'm a Manchester based actor and voice coach. I can help you to improve your communication skills on stage or in everyday life. Sessions will be tailored to your needs to help you get the best out of your unique voice.

I am available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am-7pm.

No young children. Older children (age 12 minimum) and adults only - but there is no upper age limit.

I ALWAYS respond to inquiries within 48 hours. If you have not received an email after this time, please check your junk mail. If there is still no email, visit my website (concealed information) for contact details.

Background

I'm actor with experience of teaching voice in some of the country's top drama schools. I have also lead freelance drama workshops in primary schools across the UK. I have experience of working with teenagers and adults of all backgrounds - specialising in speakers of English as a second language.

I have also worked with non-actors. I taught English Conversation to Japanese artists on an exchange program at Birmingham City University. I have worked one-to-one on public speaking and pronunciation with people from lots of different countries including Taiwan, Rwanda, Poland, Korea and Spain.

I have a current enhanced DBS and I am a member of Equity.

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...

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.
