About our voice & speech training services

All our voice and speech lessons are highly practical and reflective, meaning lots of vocal warm ups, speaking exercises and articulation practice supported with regular feedback as well as recording and playback so you can measure your own progress. This is done with the aim of equipping you with the right skills to independently set your own goals and keep yourself in good vocal shape. Our lessons are held in a non-challenging environment and take on a fun and playful atmosphere, frequently using drama, voice or language games depending on the goals of the class.
