“He makes the work feel accessible and helps us take ourselves a little less seriously when we get in our heads….”
I’ve had an amazing experience in Voice with Matthew Dudley. Matthew’s demeanor in class is gentle but direct, often tailored to what each particular student needs. He’s patient but strongly motivating and clear. His sense of humor is also really awesome because I think the concept of voice and speech as an actor can be intimidating at first. He makes the work feel accessible and helps us take ourselves a little less seriously when we get in our heads.
The sound and movement exercise has also been really useful for me to find clarity in my instrument and connection between my body and my voice. It’s something I think I would have been too timid or embarrassed to participate in a year ago. But the energy of the class has always been incredibly encouraging. An overall amazing experience and I think useful, not only for the technical aspect but the emotional aspect as well!
