Being in Voice

I am a Liverpool-based, Australian-born theatre maker, classical actress, singer-songwriter, performance poet, clown (Fairy Bessie) and podcaster, who has trained and worked in the UK, USA, Russia and Australia.

Voice and speech training programs to suit all levels of experience, which can be designed individually to accommodate your busy schedule.

I have been working as an actor, director and voice and acting coach in Australia, UK and USA for many years. I will provide you with the tools to develop a strong, flexible, effective speaking voice. Once you understand how to use those tools, you own them, you have control over how you use them – your way.

Being in Voice is suitable for anyone who wishes to enhance their communication skills.
For actors, this means being alive and working in the moment, keeping the performance fresh and spontaneous every time. For public speakers, business people, educators this means expressing yourself with clarity and confidence, generously sharing the content of your topic with your audience.

Public speakersperformers, broadcasters and voice over artists need to prepare well in advance, giving yourself – and your muscles, time to be fit, flexible and truly responsive to the demands of the occasion. Whether you are making a 5 minute pitch or performing Hamlet, your voice connects you, physically, to your audience.

?️Flloyd Kennedy, an Australian-born, Liverpool based poet, performer, voice and acting coach in her late 70s, has created the comic-audio-drama Am I Old Yet?, a series of self-contained vignettes in which a character named Helen, who is also in her late 70s, adjusts to the reality of ageing with dignity, honesty and joy. Helen engages in conversation with members of her family and friends in a way that makes you feel along for the ride, invited to hear a perspective that is often overlooked in podcasting. What do I keep saying about poets being the best podcasters, you guys? These are beautiful pieces that deal with deep and intimate thoughts we’ll all be confronting sooner or later. Listen here.
