Voice work is a precarious endeavor. It’s absolutely essential in pursuing a career in acting, however, a common pitfall of voice training is creating an actor who is preoccupied with the technical aspects of perfect speech, clarity, projection – thus forgetting that we must sound like human beings at the end of the day. We must sound like people and not vocally trained actors. This is one of the many reasons Shane Ann is brilliant. Her method and approach never forgets that simple yet pivotal fact – delivering humanity in a clear audible way. While her work not only embraces that concept, the actual text and voice components of her training are top notch making her the go to source for voice and speech work in our industry. Without her guidance I would have spent many hours and dollars on training that I would later have to undo, and I credit Shane Ann with giving me some basic building blocks to pursue a successful career on the stage and film.
