My Methodology

The initial assessment is customised to your indiviual needs . Margaret will identify the main areas that require attention based on your specific areas of voice and speech development. An individual programme will be developed to meet these needs.

Tuition will be given in effective communication, to help in voice production and accent modification. Business and academic presentations are Margaret's speciality.

I use the following techniques:

  • Improvisation
  • Role Play
  • Reading from prepared texts
  • Guided vocal exercises
  • Impromtu speeches
  • Taping the voice and evaluation of audio playback
  • Voice and Speech Training for Actors
  • Communication Skills
  • Speaking assertively with confidence
  • Court appearances - dealing with authority
  • Interpersonal / Family relationships

From the vast amount of course material available I find the following books and DVDs helpful:

All lessons involve reading of prepared material that I provide. Homework sheets are given for ongoing vocal development between lessons.
