The voice is one of the most important tools an actor has at their disposal. The voice is what lifts a script up from its pages to the stage. It has the power to bring communities together, to inspire, emote, relate, alienate, storytell… the list is endless. Character work can often start with the voice, this offers an instrinsic look into what a character thinks and how they process and communicate their thoughts. Established voice coach, Richard Ryder has worked in a variety of settings, whether it be for West End shows, Drama Schools or Corporate environments. Richard explains more about what his role entails.
