Preparation & Practice
After years of training, a dancer spends hours fine tuning her body, an opera singer keeps his voices in tip top condition, musicians practice for hours on end and actors spend weeks in rehearsal. Almost all performing artists take regular classes or coaching. Why should a voice actor be different?
As my esteemed voice teacher at Guildhall, John Holgate used to say, 'Proper preparation and plenty of practice prevents a piss poor performance!'
I've never forgotten that advice.

I've gleaned quite a lot of knowledge over the years, knowledge that might be of interest to others, especially authors, actors and voice actors. Because I read so much, for pleasure and professionally, I also occasionally write reviews of what I read - so they're here too.
My opinions are mine and my views are my own!
