SINGING

When we are singing with freedom and connection to our artistic expression it seems to come directly from our soul.  I’ve certainly experienced that feeling in my body, my instrument. I’ve experienced my body expressing resonance, tones, vocal textures, even phrasing that I never consciously thought of.  And my students have experienced that same feeling.  It’s what athletes call “being in the zone.”

The cool thing is that your body is an instrument capable of creating and expressing your most interesting and unique voice.  When most people sing, they are trying to control their singing.  But what I usually observe in many singers is that they are over-controlling their instrument. They are using muscles in their jaw, tongue, throat, upper chest and stomach to try and hit high notes, sing with volume, or develop a style. This will create excess tension in the body and it will shut the natural voice down.

We do need to be able to control our instrument, but this is done best with what I call “Breath Management.”  Our voice is a wind instrument. So we have to be aware of how to have that air pressure work for us and not against us. Not only do we need to manage our air pressure, we also need to direct the airflow (and sound) that happens above the vocal folds.

When we efficiently place this airflow and sound in our resonating chambers, our mouth and in our head, it will have a direct positive result in the color or tone of our singing.

I teach many singers of all styles. This is in addition to my work as a private acting coach. And it doesn’t matter if you want to have a beautiful and crystal clear tone or have that wonderful soulful rasp in your voice.  It’s all possible, when you free up your instrument.

DIALECT COACHING AND ACCENTS

Learning a dialect requires more than just mimicking someone’s speech. In order to develop a believable accent that you can recall and use at will, the accent or dialect needs to be broken down into sound changes, vocal patterns and inflections, tone focus, body language of the culture, and individual character choices.

To maximize your success, you’ll be coached and guided through the process of learning and integrating these changes into your own body and speech.

Faith has worked with actors all over the world in acquiring believable accents for film and television; including Marion Cotillard, David Wenham, Jason Clarke, and film stars from Egypt, Pakistan, Thailand, England, Spain, Italy, France, Africa and Eastern Europe.

Accents and dialects taught here include a standard American accent, AND any other type of accent needed for your role. Skype sessions are available.

VOICE FOR ACTORS

Casting Directors, Managers, Agents & Directors react to you by what they see AND what they hear. Our great actors maximize their performances because they have free, powerful, emotional and connected voices.

Much of the work is about getting out of your head and into your body. As a private acting coach, I feel acting is now visceral and spontaneous, surprising and exciting.  In my private acting coach sessions you’ll learn to incorporate simple, but extraordinarily effective exercises I’ve designed for my voice class.  The results are often instantly life changing for the actor. The great news is, this method gets very fast results, and so it is very effective when preparing for an audition or even on set.

In our voice class you will work on vocal exercises that will give you a natural but powerful sound.  You’ll also maximize your impact by effectively aligning your body and releasing excess tension. And you’ll be given simple but powerful techniques to consistently access your emotions through your body and voice. In addition to my work as a private acting coach, I offer private voice coaching for corporate execs and group lessons for sales teams.

ACTING COACH

I’ve had the great joy of being a private acting coach to some of the best actors in the entertainment business. I’ve discovered that greatness comes from finding and fully accepting your own unique voice as an actor. When that happens something frees up in you – it’s what I’ve discovered as a private acting coach to world-class stars.

Then, acting will become exciting, challenging and fun.  You gain more and more confidence, and you will stop being afraid to take risks. Again and again you will find the depth in your work as you bring your characters to life. Your acting is now believable and truthful. This is my philosophy as a private acting coach.

You have become an artist. You have become the storyteller that the audience will want to watch again and again. Let me become your private acting coach and  you’ll be empowered to succeed personally and professionally.
