I offer a bespoke combined Voiceover Coaching Service in London, UK and Comprehensive Preparation Service for those about to record their first or updated voiceover reel. The vibe is friendly, informal and focused. You don't need to prepare or bring anything with you.


Having a suite of professional studio voice reels is essential if you’re serious about becoming a voice artist or transforming occasional voice work into a living. The voice reel is your primary means of showing prospective clients what you can do; and because the voiceover industry is so fiercely competitive, it’s critical to maximise that asset.

By working alongside you I will be able to assess where you can improve and where you are strong, and importantly identify scripts that you respond to. The aim is to give you a foundation in voiceover technique and the right scripts, so that you hit the ground running when you record your reels in a professional studio, making the most of your time there.


£300 + VAT for one session (4-5 hours approx).

By the end of one session, the intention is to have identified, worked on and recorded a selection of scripts in preparation for a studio voice reel recording session:

> Commercial

> Corporate

> Narrative/documentary

Sessions tend to work better in the mornings. All sessions take place at my home in north London.

“I called upon Richard’s expertise to embark on a voiceover career and learn the fundamental voice skills to create a strong voiceover reel. Richard’s care, passion and attention to detail, together with his incredible gift for drawing out an artist’s authentic voice makes his service as a voice-over tutor the best time and money spent. I have successfully secured a voice-over agent and I regard his input in this process truly integral to the end result. Thank you Richard!”


“The coaching Richard offered was just fantastic. He has a great way of meeting me where I am rather than where someone else might think I should be. Quite impressive that he has such a light touch but also assured. I loved the result.”


“So pleased with the work I did with Richard. It was relaxed and fun but we got lots done and I didn’t think I was capable of that level of work. Brilliant! I would recommend Richard as a voiceover coach to anyone wanting to work on their reel or get started. It was a huge benefit. So pleased with the result.”


“My coaching session with Richard transformed me from a green acting student with no audio experience to a confident and capable actor ready to enter the world of VO. His techniques and practices offered incredible insight into the craft of voiceover work and the industry. I feel lucky to have crossed paths with him.”


“Richard helped me record my voiceover reel and was so kind, patient and enthusiastic that I really enjoyed myself! He really knows his stuff, and helped me bring out my strengths. His advice was excellent. I recommend him whole-heartedly.”


“Richard is an incredibly talented, compassionate, and encouraging teacher – he has a manner that instantly makes you feel calm and at ease and he tunes into you to bring out your individual voice. Since working with him he has brought a confidence and eloquence to my performances and has helped me with accents, self-tapes and everything in between, I could not recommend his material more!”
