ACCENT & DIALECT LESSONS FOR ACTORS
My approach to accents combines physical work with the physiological and linguistic components of an accent; it can be applied to any accent or dialect you may wish to perfect, including RP, General American, or an accent that is specific to your particular casting.

ACCENT REDUCTION (NON-NATIVe SPEAKERS)
In our first session, I will assess your accent and discuss your goals. I will then design a program that incorporates in-person sessions and 5-, 10-, or 15-minute exercises to complete daily, with the possibility of practice by telephone.
WORKSHOPS FOR: LANGUAGE TEACHERS and students, actors, and acting STUDENTS
Workshops are designed for participants to learn my approach and methodology for improving their pronunciation skills and putting the techniques to practical use. The methods I teach are routed in acting techniques that help actors accurately portray different characters, but no acting ability or interest is required.
I also do "acting in the accent" monologue workshops for actors to work on a text in their accent of choice.
