Emily Colour Headshot

Emily Mawer

Emily is originally from Leicestershire in the UK. She trained as an actress at the London College of Music graduating with a BA (Hons) degree in Acting for Stage and Media. She has performed in various theatres and festivals across the UK, including the International Youth Arts Festival and co-writing and co-directing her own show for the Brighton Fringe Festival. Throughout her actor training, she always knew her passion was in coaching and teaching and she has recently completed her MA degree in Voice Studies at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. There she studied in-depth the spoken voice, with an emphasis on training the voice for performance, working with text, accents and dialects and accent softening. She has facilitated many drama and voice workshops for young people as well as coaching actors of all ages one-to-one in voice, accent and script work. Most recently she was the voice coach for a touring Theatre In Education show, and for ‘A Glass of Nothing’, a play that was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
