Working with Louisa at the RSC was an absolute pleasure. Her understanding of how the voice works was refreshing and her attention to detail was impeccable. Any initial nerves I had at tackling the four accents I had to do in the play were dispersed once I began working with Louisa - I quickly found I was in very safe hands.
Having your input during the rehearsals made a tangible difference for all the cast members. Your instructions were clear, concise, productive and very actor friendly. Diolch!
Our casts always look forward to Louisa spending time with them working on their voices in preparation for our national tours. Her knowledge and skill is immense and she helps our actors achieve their aims very quickly which is vital when our rehearsal periods are short and intense. What makes Louisa stand out from any other vocal coach we have worked with is her ability to adapt to an individual actor’s needs. She listens very closely and understands how each actor’s way of thinking differs and her ability to work with each person in a different way to bring out the best in the individual is, I think, unique. Add to that her obvious passion and love for what she does combined with a sharp wit and no nonsense approach to getting work done in the short time we have with her makes her the one vocal coach I would chose above any other.
I’ve worked with Louisa for two and a half years now and what a dream she is! She’s always so friendly and prepared in our sessions, whether it be for singing or voice/dialect coaching. She’s been brilliant throughout and always pushes me to work hard and be at my very best. Louisa is organised and thorough, always giving me really useful resources for accent coaching, and different exercises for singing. I wouldn’t be able to work with anyone else and would recommend her to anyone in the industry who wanted extra coaching.
Louisa’s singing lessons are truly bespoke; she skilfully tailors the content to match the student’s expertise. Her broad knowledge allows her to draw upon a wealth of exercises in order to achieve the objective, based on both the desires of the student and on her excellent diagnostic skills. I have always felt in safe hands with Louisa - she has a friendly, collaborative approach to lessons along with a solid grounding in the Estill model, which promotes safe, healthy singing. I leave each lesson feeling like I’ve learnt a great deal; I would highly recommend her for voice users of any ability.
