Voice & Dialect Coaching

Any actor wanting to create an authentic voice or accent significantly widens the possibility of landing a role.


In the competitive world of presenting, the voice needs to be used in the most engaging way. Learn to present with passion, influence, variety and enthusiasm.


While many journalists are accomplished in the areas of writing and reporting, broadcast journalists benefit from voice training to deliver a story with authority and authenticity.

“Jenny Kent was integral in shaping my performance in Lion. She lives for her craft and is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. Her support, patience and kindness meant the world to me during this life changing experience”.

Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire, Lion, Hotel Mumbai

Jenny Kent is the queen of dialects. Whether it’s on Skype or in person she makes the sometimes quite daunting task of learning a new accent seem easy. I was lucky enough to have her on set with me too and I made a friend for life into the bargain.

Kelly Macdonald, Trainspotting, Boardwalk Empire, No Country for Old Men, Dirt Music

“Jenny is the only voice coach I ever need to work with. She is meticulous and methodical, a wealth of knowledge, but her true talent lies in her ability to kindly instill confidence where there wasn’t any before. She was instrumental in landing my first US job.”

Lincoln Younes, Home and Away, Love Child, Grand Hotel

“What I love about the way Jen works, is her skill in respecting an actors creative process combined with her efficient and targeted coaching. Jen understands how an actor creates a role and flexes with the actor to adapt character choices into the creation of a voice, whilst simultaneously being very precise about exactly how to create the nuts and bolts of a dialect. This means the process is fast and has depth and gives you the actor confidence in your ability to imbed and often unlock a character.”

Annie Maynard, Upper Middle Bogan, Puberty Blues, Playing for Keeps

“I’ve been lucky enough to work with Jen on several projects. Her approach is gentle, thorough and completely workable. She always instills me with absolute confidence in my vocal and accent work.”. Nicole Da Silva

Nicole Da Silva, Wentworth, Rush, Carla Cametti PD

Jenny inherently understands the needs of actors. With innate sensitivity and discipline, she works with actors to create a dialect to enhance any scene. Further to this, her understanding of voice means she is an invaluable resource for any actor. From a director’s point of view, Jenny is always respectful and insightful, she has an ability to understand direction so the accent always enhances rather than conflicts the performance.”

Justin Martin , Resident director : Billy Elliot – The Musical, Associate Director : The Audience, West End

“In my role addressing large groups of people on a regular basis, nerves often get in the way of delivering my message clearly and confidently. Jenny showed me how to approach presentations with clarity, confidence and persuasiveness”.

Ian Jenkins, Barrister
