‘Achieving the correct accent is a top priority for me when preparing a role and finding someone whose attention to every detail of this process is meticulous and who is able to impart not only the sound but the understanding of the development of the sound is of enormous benefit. This was my experience with Carmen on the play Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks and our results were verified by the excellent feedback received.’

Nancy Hayes OAM, Actor

‘Carmen’s research is thorough; her knowledge of cultural mores and traditions is spot on and her inspirational teaching style makes her a joy to work with. She’s a knowledgeable and passionate teacher. Highly Recommended!’

Kate Gaul, Director

‘Carmen Lysiak has worked on a number of productions as dialect coach at Ensemble with excellent results. She is very thorough and very skilled and manages to get good results not only with actors who are good with dialects, but also those with a less natural ear.
