Breathe. Speak. Be heard.
Brianne Taylor - Voice/Speech/Acting Coach
Based in West Virginia (Pittsburgh & DC), I am a voice, speech and acting coach focusing on an individualized approach to each person's speaking needs.
My work with the voice and acting is rooted in the breath. From the observation and regulation of the breath, the work continues from the body, self-identity, presence and the need to communicate. This route of growth allows for an individualized focus and lends itself to be a paramount tool for actors, public speakers, teachers and all who rely on their voice for effective communication.
I am a certified Assistant Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, having completed the year long program in Barcelona in 2017. I have also completed certification as a teacher of Knight-Thompson Speechwork with folks globally through the online 2021 training.
I have traveled to Europe a couple times now, for pleasure & for work, and have studied the voice with practitioners from around the world. My greatest interests lie in the liberation of female voices and the power of humanity to communicate through cultural and language barriers.
I have been acting for 10+ years in Kansas and the DC area, including The Contemporary American Theatre Festival. The last 7 years of vocal coaching have lead me to work on theatrical productions, film sets, in professional actor training programs, and with individual clients. I am the Assistant Professor of Voice & Speech in the School of Theatre and Dance at West Virginia University.
I offer work that will focus on your individual needs to liberate the breath, voice and intentions.
If you do not see something offered that fits your specific needs, please contact me.
I am certain we can tailor a session to your needs.
