I use an embodied approach to accent coaching. Accents are physical behaviors, so we develop your awareness of how your speech muscles shape sound so that you can easily shift from one accent to another and feel your way into it, without relying on the sometimes faulty ear or constantly needing an accent coach to tell you that you are doing it right. My approach is heavily influenced by Knight-Thompson Speechwork® and the ‘How to Do Accents’ method by Edda Sharpe and Jan Haydn Rowles.
Who is Accent Coaching For?
Actors who need to take on other accents as part of their work or anyone who feels like they’d like to find more clarity or authenticity in their accent when speaking in a foreign language. While I enjoy coaching anyone in any accent, I have a specialty in working with British actors on their General American accents.
I offer virtual and in-person private sessions, group classes and workshops. Please be in touch if you’d like more information or to book a session.
