I’m available for one-on-one, semi-private or group coaching in any accent or dialect, whether you’re learning it for a play, preparing for an audition, or just honing your skills. I offer in-person coaching in New York City, or coaching by Skype if you're in LA, Chicago, DC, Boston... or anywhere in the world.

I have coached privately for actors, singers, and voiceover artists; worked with theaters on large and small cast productions; and coached, taught and led workshops at universities, actor training programs, and comedy clubs. Here are just some of the dialects and accents I have helped performers to master:

  • General American English

  • Standard British or "Received Pronunciation"

  • "Transatlantic" English and Standard Stage English

  • London, Cockney, and Estuary dialects

  • New York

  • Boston and rural New England dialects

  • American Southern and Appalachian dialects

  • American Midwest dialects

  • English and French Canadian dialects

  • Irish, Scottish, and Welsh dialects

  • Yorkshire, Manchester, Norfolk, Shropshire, and West Country dialects

  • Australian, South African and Indian dialects

  • Chicano, "Nuyorican" and Miami Cuban English

  • Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Israeli, Arabic, Yiddish, Afrikaans, Swedish, Chinese, Japanese, Haitian, and Rwandan accents, and more.

I can also help performers with pronunciation of foreign languages. I have coached actors in the pronunciation of Spanish, French, Russian, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Serbo-Croatian, Yiddish, Welsh, and Kinyarwanda, among others, and even invented fictional dialects for sci-fi / fantasy.

Danny Bryck was a Godsend. He worked with us on a rather specific and challenging dialect, and the excellent results were due to his hard work and organization. He presented a breakdown of the dialect in a clear, well thought out manner... and was patient, encouraging and inspiring. I received several compliments on my dialect work, and I don’t think I could have gotten nearly as good without Danny’s help. I cannot recommend Danny enough, and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
