Dancers and musicians all practice regularly, but there's less culture of that among actors. The Actors Guild's On Voice is changing that!

You can use the sessions for whatever you've got on at the time: keeping your voice and text-responsiveness limbered between jobs, working in theatre spaces after a period in film, extending your vocal range and expressiveness, finding the 'voice' of a character, finding reality with classic and modern text, sight reading, checking on the truthfulness of your voice when working on screen. Actors also find them very useful for audition preparation.

"I came out feeling relaxed and connected. I felt like there were some new exercises introduced to me that previously I was not familiar with. I got to work on a monologue I had not shown to anyone in a safe environment"

"I hope to come to more sessions. I find voice work extremely valuable and I'm surprised there are not more voice classes out there. So for me these classes are a great opportunity."

"I liked the fact that each person was treated with a different approach according to their needs. I would recommend these workshops very highly to everybody. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but have used everything we did since then."

"I just had to tell you how fantastic the On Voice workshop was... He really is a master."

"A fantastic affirming workshop! An absolute must for any actor eager to work on their craft!"

"The class really unlocked lots of things for me, and I had a complete lightbulb moment. It really felt like a step for me, and was incredibly satisfying, so thank you very much!"

"Another great workshop - this voice class comes hugely recommended"

"A big thank you for your help yesterday. Feeling a lot better about the audition now"

William Trotter works with the voice and its relation to language as a creative component both of actor development and of the rehearsal process.  He works one-to-one, on shows, and in workshops.  He has worked with actors of many levels of experience, established names and people at early stages in their careers. His one-to-one clients have worked at the National, Royal Court and West End and leads at Regent’s Park and Apollo Victoria. Theatre work, including at the Arcola, BAC, the Finborough, the Royal Court, Lyric Studio, Menier Chocolate Factory, New Diorama and Riverside Studios, has involved helping actors whose experience has been in films to find voice for stage, pre-rehearsal and pre-performance warm-ups for companies, as well as audibility and vocal strain.  He initiated and leads On Voice, the Actors Guild's regular voice-text limber sessions, and initiated and is developing the Actors Centre Shakespeare Speaking Laboratory.  Workshops led at the Actors Centre have included Finding the Character's Voice, Vocal Truth for Stage and Screen, Multi-Cultural Shakespeare, Working Words and Working Shakespeare's Words. He has led workshops for Escape Artists, Graeae, Mind the Gap, the Magic Circle, The Royal Scottish Conservatoire, and for Tamasha Theatre's actor-director laboratory. Non-theatre work has included work with presenters from China Radio International, ITN Factual, and LBC. Drama schools he has taught at include ArtsEd, Central, Drama Centre, East 15 and LAMDA.
