Nail that audition, find your character's authentic voice, expand your range.
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
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.
