Claire Fleetneedle

Elocution, Voice and Acting Coach

Claire is a highly intuitive teacher with a strong focus on posture, breathing, delivery and diction she works on a one to one basis tailoring each class for the individual’s specific requirements. 

After training with one of Britain's finest elocution teachers for many years she gained a raft of qualifications from London College of Musics Speech and Drama Department. While studying she was also an active member of the Royal Exchange Theatre Youth Group in Manchester.

With a wide range of experience teaching acting/public speaking and strong foundation in received pronunciation/elocution Claire can soften accents and solve speech problems.  As well as RP she teaches a wide range of UK dialects and American accents.


Acting classes concentrate on all aspects of vocal performance and technique. Public speaking students will be tutored in engaging the audience and delivering the perfect speech or presentation. 

Claire also specialises in teaching students with additional educational needs. With an understanding that everyone learns in completely different ways, she delivers each class to suit the pupils exact needs whilst aiming to make learning easy and fun.

Added to this she has a strongly held conviction that the opportunity to take private voice classes should be available to all and therefore tries to keep the fees affordable.
