INTRODUCING
the voice over queens

Naomi McDonald is an Anglo-American-Irish award winning voice-artist, actor, comedy-impressionist and singer, from London. 

Naomi’s passion for accents and voices started at the tender age of 9 when she recorded her first professional voice-over for Nickelodeon. She has since worked consistently in the 
voice-over field and now has over
22 years of experience under her belt, represented by her brilliant agent Calypso Voices. Naomi is also a professional impressionist and singer, and last year she took her hugely successful celebrity impressions show ‘Copycat’ to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the second year in a row.

Eliza Butterworth is a British/American television, theatre and radio actress who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.

After graduating from RADA in 2014, Eliza went on to star as Lady Aelswith in the epic Netflix drama 'The Last Kingdom‘. Eliza has performed extensively on stage and is a regular artist for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. An experienced voice actor, Eliza has been a voice artist on various BBC Radio 4 plays and video games. Eliza’s American heritage gives her an excellent ear for all US accents and her classical training has enabled her to master the sounds and vocal work for RP and many other accents. 

Note from Naomi
‘I absolutely love sharing my advice and tips on nailing an accent in a relaxed, supportive and fun environment. It is a genuine pleasure to see someone leave our session feeling much more confident, and sometimes hearing they booked a job because of it, which is just wonderful!’

ACCENT & DIALECT COACHING

Accent and dialect coaching will involve an exploration of the ways in which we can differentiate one accent from another by focussing on tone, speech patterns and use of language - with feedback focusing on credibility, consistency and clarity.

Do you need to have a flawless accent for an audition or role? Maybe you want to develop and add a new accent to your tool kit? Let us help you climb into the accent and really claim it as your own.

Don't let vocal limitations ruin your chance of booking your dream job - or ruin a job you booked by an inexcusable accent. There is no excuse for a lack of preparation! You will leave your session with confidence and knowledge, able to put the techniques you learn into practice. Our coaches are friendly and encouraging… but their ears are unforgiving!

' I had the most amazing opportunity to work with Eliza, on both one-to-one and group classes doing RP and the American accent and she is simply THE BEST!

VOCAL TRAINING

You could be the most talented actor in the World but without knowing how to use your voice properly and safely, you are treading on very thin ice.

Technique is a MUST as an actor.If you are filming a five page screaming argument for a TV show, then chances are you will have to do it multiple times. If your voice starts croaking on the third take, you might just ruin a whole day of filming. Your voice could even stop you filming the rest of the week. At this point, you've not only let yourself down but the entire set crew and actors you are working with. 

That is a lot of pressure on your shoulders - one of the many reasons not everyone makes it as an actor. You have to be consistent and reliable. If you're not, the harsh truth is you're not employable.

Our coaches are seasoned professionals and can unlock the power in your voice. Exploring vocal flexibility, breath control and body element, you are gaining essential skills to make you a strong, reliable actor.

Note from Eliza
'I am so enthusiastic about accents and vocal work and I really believe a character can truly lie in an actor’s voice. It is very important for an actor to expand their range in accents and hone down their skills to embody other people and feel confident about interpreting new voices and roles'
