Voice, Articulation & Presence

including dialects & public speaking

``Your voice is the organ of the soul.``

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Your voice and the way you speak can reveal a lot about who you are and how you envision yourself in the world.

Whether you’re an actor preparing for a role, or a business professional who wants to have an impact when presenting, I can help.

From breathing and alignment to tone placement and tongue position, to personal history – yours, your character’s – when we work together, I consider all aspects and customize lessons just for you and your ultimate goal.

Your voice tells a story about you, and the way you deliver your message can sometimes resonate more than the message itself.

Your vocal presence or lack thereof can be the difference between reaching personal goals, and feeling the frustration of falling short.

Classes & Workshops

Where the gap between understanding something in your mind, and living truthfully and spontaneously in your skin is bridged.

The Art of Public Speaking

Workshops are designed for professionals who want to be more confident and engaging when speaking publicly. Whether you’re on a conference call, a board meeting, on a panel or giving a TedTalk, this workshop will help you feel more at-ease and more dynamic when you speak.

The next Art of Public Speaking workshop will be in Cuenca, Spain on October 26 – 28. Find out more at www.SpeakWellEurope.com

Embody the Character

This class focuses on the body of the actor and weaves together the technical and the emotional through breath, voice, presence, and behavior.  Based on the foundational practices of F.M. Alexander (The Alexander Technique), Patsy Rodenburg (Second Circle) and Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), this is the missing link for all actors between studying a character and embodying a life.

A Holistic Approach to Dialects & Character Work

As our regional and global communities become more interconnected, learning a particular dialect has evolved into a delightfully complex endeavor.

It’s 2018, and thankfully there are more and more TV/Film/Web and theater projects that include roles from all over the world.

The idea of a Standard American dialect or RP or “the correct” way to speak is giving way to the specificity of the who/what/where and the history of each character.

Join us for this class where we open up a new way of looking at dialects — with a concentration on the UK for this round — to give you the tools for getting more work in today’s projects.

The SpeechRing

a tool as unique as you

After coaching actors and business professionals for over 15 years, Lauren was curious about finding a way to help her clients practice refining their articulation between sessions.

She searched for a safe, non-toxic tool that would help people to feel what space inside the mouth and engaging facial muscles could provide in terms of clearer speech. When she didn’t find anything that made sense for her clients, she decided to invent something new and simple. After about a year of experimenting with various materials and shapes, the Speech Ring™ was born!

We can’t wait to share it with you!

For speech impediments, please consult a speech pathologist or speech therapist before using.

The Speech Ring is a practice tool only, it is not meant to replace a qualified professional.
