I’m Anita Gilbert, the founder of Speakeasy Voice & Accent Coaching.
I trained at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts London (ALRA), on their 3year Professional Actor’s course and also hold an MA(Dist) from The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in Professional Voice Practice.
I acted professionally in TV, film radio and commercial before going on to work as an agent for PHPM, securing high profile work for my clients.
The main focus of my work today is helping clients to develop their voices for stage and screen; including approaching text, getting them audition ready, helping them explore character once in a role or nailing that tricky accent.
I am voice & accent coach at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire – Acting Dept and is also on the panel of examiners at LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art)
Recent credits include:
What Fatima Did, Abi at Derby Theatres, Directed by Sarah Brigham
Raving Pentacost, Sold, Don Juan in Chicago, Holy Day at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
