Professional, dependable and personal tutoring
Once booking is confirmed, you will receive:
A Monologue for your target accent/dialect
An Accent Guide, explaining the terms and phrases we use to assist with specific learning
An IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) Chart
Links and clips for additional study support
Once you have contacted me with your preferred session type and target accent, I will be in touch within 24 hours to confirm your booking.
Every one-to-one session will be facilitated through Skype (unless you live in Manchester), so do ensure you have this free app installed prior to the session.
A Resource Pack will be emailed to you once payment and booking details have been confirmed.
All resources are matched to your individual needs and learning plans we agree on.
Check through the confirmed email to ensure you have received every document, and then prepare accordingly for the session.
If you wish to use your own text or script to learn from, please ensure you email a version of this to me as soon as possible.
I'm aiming to be as flexible as you require me to be in terms of your preferred learning style, and it will help if you let me know your usual study process in advance of our workshop.
After every session, you will receive highlights to target, as well as feedback notes.
This will be sent by email to show how brilliantly you're doing, and what to practice on.
All advice and guidance will be based on suggestions offered during and after the sessions.
Many actors prefer sessions the old-fashioned way.
My base is from home in Chorlton, Manchester.
The living room is an ideal place to study and practice!
Transport links are excellent -- I live five minutes walk from the tram and there's plenty of parking in the street outside!
I'm also pleased to offer group sessions in central Manchester!
Group sessions have a maximum of ten actors per class, so make sure to make your interest known as soon as possible.
Also follow @accents4actors for updates on accents that will be studied.
Group sessions will be quarterly and rotated, so if it is oversubscribed, you will be prioritised for the next session's attendance.
Young Actor Accent Coaching:
In the past few years, I've been a guest practitioner with several Manchester-based agencies.
This has included group workshops, accent reduction, accent mastery, audition support, and now voicereel recording for an age range from 5 to 17!
Several of my child actor clients have been successful in booking a range of TV acting jobs, notably, Callum Booth-Ford (Peaky Blinders) and Tristan Ruggeri (The Witcher).
Contact me on to book sessions!
Voice-reel Production & Recording:
A fantastic new service offered to actors based in the North-West!
I've teamed up with Adam Lyon (Salford University Sound Engineer) to offer voice-reel production and recording at his home studio!
The total package includes:
Bespoke scripts for commercial, narration, character and/or PSA samples
Identifying your individual voice strengths and advising on selection
Accent coaching for specific pieces
Direction on the day to assist with your delivery choices
Recording and editing final pieces to a superior quality.
If you're looking for an outstanding, original voice-reel, check out the 'Book' page for brilliant offers!
In addition to the Skype One-to-One sessions, I also offer sound-file recordings, tailored for your own study requirements.
Recordings have a standard charge of £20.00 for up to two minutes- this covers the time spent reading the scene as well as producing the recorded lines to a high quality.
If the recording required is longer than two minutes, additional £10 per minute recording apply.
Recordings have NO CHARGE if we have worked on the scene during the one-to-one if the final recording is less than two minutes.
Additional charges may apply if it's longer than two minutes, at £10 per additional recorded minute.
So, if you book an audition support session, we work on your sides and the recording takes less than two minutes, you only pay £30 for the entire service!
If you require your lines recorded or you wish to book an audition support session, please email in the first instance:
Clients are expected to make notes and recordings (if necessary) in the lesson, though other resources may be emailed.
I'm pleased to offer these services at a fantastic rate.
As an actor myself, I know it's important to invest in skills that will broaden career prospects!
All these fantastic services are on the 'Book' tab overleaf at excellent prices!
