We provide private sessions in public speaking, communication skills, acting, voice and speech training (elocution) that are tailored to meet individual needs. Whether you're preparing for an upcoming event, looking for audition feedback or just interested in exploring the power of your voice, we'll design a one-to-one session or course packed full of professional tips and advice.
Public speaking/Presentation Skills
Máire has extensive experience in helping people prepare for wedding speeches, other social functions, corporate presentations and auditions.
She will help you work on your relaxation, breathing, body language and voice projection, and will give you tips to control your nerves. She will also help you structure and prepare your material and work on polishing your delivery to ensure you do a good job on a special occasion.
An interview can be a daunting process and it takes skill to communicate your abilities and experience in a clear and persuasive manner. Máire will coach you on how to best present yourself to make the most of your potential, and will take you through mock interviews to practice what you learn. Should you wish, she can also provide you with video feedback.
Auditions and acting lessons
Whether you're auditioning for a theatre role, a third level course or another competition, it's always useful to get professional feedback in advance. Máire or Yvonne can recommend audition pieces, or work on yours with you, as well as guide you on what to expect at audition. You will learn how to control nerves, develop breathing and vocal techniques so that you can reveal your true potential.
If you would like to become involved in drama and don't know where to start, we can provide private acting lessons to teach basic skills.
Voice and Speech Training (Elocution)
Developing the expressive power of your voice can have a powerful impact on your ability to communicate with others.
Máire will show you how to develop your vocal technique, speech, tone and projection to make the most of your natural voice and help protect against vocal strain. It will be helpful to professionals who depend on their voice, e.g. Teachers, Trainers, Managers, or anybody who would like to explore or improve their voice to deliver the spoken word.
