Why work with us?

100% of the people we work with would recommend us to their colleagues. We feel that it is vital that you have a great time working with us, and that the work that we do is easily applicable to your work.


What can I hope to achieve?

Firstly, and most importantly we aim for you to achieve a better awareness and understanding of how your voice works, both anatomically and viscerally (through sensation). This allows you to progress more swiftly towards what you hope to achieve.


How long does it take?

This depends on your final goal. All voice work takes practice and dedication. There are many ‘quick-fix’ exercises that one can use for short-term effect, but this will not achieve anything substantial in the long-run. Even our shortest courses will provide you with plenty of tools to improve your vocal skills.

What is RP (Received Pronunciation)?

RP is Received Pronunciation. This is considered to be the ‘accent neutral’ yardstick of British English used by actors and vocal coaches. Although it is considered to be ‘neutral’ it can be most closely identified with a southern English sound.

We use RP as a ‘yardstick’ by working out how to achieve a regional accent relative to changes necessary to RP.


What is Phonetics?

Phonetics is the study of linguistic sound. A phoneme is a particle of speech, like a consonant or single vowel sound. Click here for a breakdown on English Phonemes


Does TemperVox provide 1-2-1 coaching?

How many people are on each course?

Numbers vary from course to course, but we restrict the numbers on each course in order to ensure a good facilitator/participant ratio. This means that you receive more 1-2-1 contact time & help from your course facilitator.
