Patsy Rodenburg wants to free your voice so that you can express yourself fully and honestly in public. Her revelation in The Right to Speak is that sound, like sense, can respond to the heart of the our inner selves. -- Sir Ian McKellen
Patsy is one of the handful of people in the world who understand that the use of the voice by actors and public speakers engages the heart, the mind and the body. There is no teacher, in my experience, who brings all of these together with such wisdom and patience. -- Sir Richard Eyre
Patsy Rodenburg is one the best teachers I've known: she is a constant source of strength and inspiration. -- Sir Anthony Sher
Whenever I read one of Patsy Rodenburg's books, it's as if she is speaking directly to me. Not only is it comforting to be reassured that I am on the right track with my teaching, but she says many of the things I say to my students - only she says them better. Her passionate, practical approach makes her books readable and accessible ... The Right to Speak: Working with the Voice continues that tradition ... The Right to Speak is a practical, accessible, inspiring guide for the experienced voice practitioner, the beginner, and anyone and everyone in between. * Methods: A Journal of Acting Pedagogy *
