Susan White - Voice and Creative Impulse


Read Susan's Biography

Subject taught at LSDA: Voice, Creative Impulse, Telling Stories

Coaching at LSDA since 2005, my experiential tuition enables students to balance their desire, passion and imagination with developing ability, accuracy and confidence.

Throughout the training year we encounter how it feels to ‘allow’ the narrative to run through us to the audience.  We learn to listen with ears, attuned to breath and heartbeat.  We develop core stability, resilience and the reassurance of authenticity.  We come to understand our own Creative Impulse.  Student development is both individual and group defined, as, through myth and world poetry, together, we explore ‘how to’ vivify the story.

Practical learning is devised from a mix of personal practices: AT, guided meditation, energy states, psychology, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy; my diverse life experience and professional trainings in Restorative Yoga (Lasater), MA Voice Studies Distinction (Central), Licentiate Teaching Diploma (LGSM Guildhall), Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL RSA Cambridge) and classic BA Hons English Language & Literature.   In addition to the drama-theatre realm, I train and coach people from all walks of life, from Lords and diplomats to remarkable everyday people.  Professional Development:   Personal Development:
