A motivated and passionate coach, I strive to empower clients to take ownership of their unique voice. I aim to create a safe environment for students to explore and challenge themselves, and to gain the understanding and ability to safely access a free and flexible voice, so they can have confidence moving forward in any professional setting.
Voice & Dialect Coach
Along with a BA in Education and an MA in Acting, I also have an MFA in Voice Studies from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
Whether it be an actor working on an accent or a corporate client working on their voice and presentation skills, I would be thrilled to assist you in achieving your goals.
Accents are no longer an extra skill but a necessity to working within the industry. Mastering the General American dialect is crucial for those wanting to broaden their opportunities

"Acacia was everything I could have asked for in a teacher. She instantly put me at ease. Her approach is very thorough but had plenty of patience and kindness for me when my brain was struggling at times. I could not recommend anyone better for all your dialect needs, do yourself a favour and learn with the best!"
— Kiandra Baily, Actor
