Learn an accent like you learn a language — speak!
American Accent Bootcamp is my monthly practice session for professional actors. Participants speak in the General American accent for the duration of the 2 hours & I give coaching notes throughout our group conversation. Think of it as language learning through immersion.
Once a month small group drop-in Zoom session
The Bootcamp is aimed at native speakers of English & numbers are kept low to ensure individual attention.
Each Bootcamp touches on the 3 main areas of accent work:
Developing your oral posture in the accent.
Ear training to master the rhythm, melody, stress & intonation patterns.
Mastering the major sound changes of the General American accent.
Meet Your Coach
I’m a dialect coach for actors in TV, film & theatre. When I’m not on set or in a rehearsal room, I work privately with clients to help them integrate good acting with good dialect work, which is both a technical & emotional process.
I’ve coached British, American & international actors including Zawe Ashton, Orlando Bloom, Ismael Cruz, Johnny Flynn, Kit Harington, Ruthie Henshall, Noomi Rapace, Noah Schnapp, Ed Skrein. I've worked on projects for Paramount Pictures, BBC, Apple, Amazon, ITV, Disney and Netflix.
