Voice & Speech
An effective voice is so intimately associated with what a speaker is saying that it attracts no attention to itself
— Jon Eisenson
One learns what a sensation is, not what it looks like. And sensation is at the heart of acting.
— Simon Callow, Being An Actor
Gail teaches actors how to reduce their accents so that they are clearly understood and can work in film, television or on the stage. She shows actors how to connect their breath to their speech so that their voice sounds authentic and not forced. Gail believes when an actor understands intimately how their vocal instrument works, they are better equipped to produce a performance that is deeper and more impactful.
Actors learn how to handle longer pieces of text on one breath. They work on vocal exercises to develop and improve their resonance, melody and range in their speech.
