After 25 years talking for a living – teaching prisoners, TV presenting, giving frequent after-dinner speeches – and bringing up two sons on his own, Matthew Collins did an MA in Voice Studies at The Central School of Speech & Drama.
He continues to teach prisoners but now also teaches voice skills to business people, performers and children. He uses Shakespeare for work ranging from articulation practice to emotional exploration of a free voice.
Matthew began his career in television, first presenting on BBC2’s The Travel Show, then on programmes such as Wogan and Richard and Judy. He’s performed one-man shows at the Edinburgh and Buxton Fringes, written four travel books and contributed to most British national newspapers.
