Testimonials

The advice and support I have received from Marilyn has significantly improved my speech, both professionally and socially. I now have a new found confidence when making professional presentations, and have dramatically improved the clarity of my everyday speech

Alexander BrownChartered Accountant

My lessons with Marilyn gave me the confidence and ability to refine my voice and generally improve my news reading and presentation.

Her sessions helped my resonance, breath and vocal health and her exercises and warm ups remain a crucial part of my daily routine before going on air.

Jessica SchachtABC News Reader Adelaide

The voice is one of the least understood aspects of being human. It conveys so much about who we are, what we do and how we feel.

Marilyn Bodycoat has great knowledge and a deep understanding of the human voice and how to use it effectively.

She can transform people, increase their confidence, their self esteem and improve their communication skills in a very short time.
