Meet Lucy

Vocal & Singing Coach

BAHons PGDip MSc MCertRCSLT 

I’m Lucy! Welcome to Dexter Vocals. 

 

I work with elite & professional voice users who are finding some difficulty or looking to improve within their singing or speaking voice. This includes a range of professions including; professional singers and actors, amateur performers, teachers, public speakers, lawyers, anyone who relies on their voice on a regular basis. 

This runs alongside my other role within the NHS as a Voice Speech and Language Therapist. 

I hold space for my clients to focus on, and explore their vocal system to inform healthy, positive and efficient voice use.

 

In your sessions with me we will take a holistic approach to your coaching, considering your whole person, the voice, the body, the mind, and your environments.

Your voice is precious and unique to you, so your sessions are completely centred around your particular vocal presentation, any ENT endoscopy results/ SLT intervention, as well as your personal needs and goals.

Building awareness of your whole vocal system with mindfulness, and respect for your body will all be essential.

I am always working toward empowering you with the knowledge to take charge of your own voice and feel confident doing so. 

I work with clients of all ages, voice types and genres of performance.

My 
Background

I began my journey into coaching when performing professionally as an Actor and Singer in London, touring the UK and Europe from the age of 17.

Throughout my own training and professional career, I have (and continue to) shadow/ed and work/ed alongside some of this country’s finest practitioners in Voice, Singing, Speech Therapy, Movement, Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais and Acting Techniques. These practitioners, and my own vocal and performance journey inspired me to move further into coaching rather than performing, and dedicate myself to learning more about our fascinating vocal system and what affects its performance potential.

I have now been coaching privately for 11 years with 8 of those years purely as a vocal coach. I have seen clients privately as well as in institutions and performing arts schools, coaching singing, voice, acting through song, technical acting and audition technique.

I am also a qualified Voice Speech and Language Therapist working for the NHS.
