Founder of Vocabilities, Darren McStay originally trained as an actor and musician. With over twenty years of experience recording in studios and performing on stage, he has amassed a wealth of expertise in his field.
He began voice coaching in 2008 and has since helped hundreds of people find their confidence and realise their potential as voice-over artists and speakers alike.
Darren originally gained a certificate of distinction in Speech and Articulation from LAMDA before studying for an MA in Acting at East 15 Acting School. He also has the equivalent MA in Radio from the same school and is currently studying to complete his Grade 6 TEFL course through the London Teachers Training College.
As a musician, Darren has played for crowds of up to three thousand and appeared on the same billing as Scissor Sisters, The Cuban Brothers and The Blockheads. He has also performed at some of the UK’s most exciting festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, and Boomtown - to name only a few.
As a stage actor, Darren has worked at The National Theatre, The Royal Opera House, ENO (English National Opera), and has also performed in Warhorse in London's West End. As a film actor, he has appeared in over twenty-five films and he continues to work in both fields.
All of this experience gives Darren a diverse and unique set of tools to draw upon when working with his clients.
Every single one of the exercises in this programme has been tried and tested by myself and my clients. What sets this course apart from any other, is its approach to creating actual physical changes in our bodies, which will keep serving us as long as we wish to utilise them. It is the ESSENTIAL voice toolkit and will always be available for you as and when you need it.
