Accent Reduction and English Lessons from Masters Student Accent Specialist
I began my classical training in St. Louis , where I acquired my BFA. I completed my Master of Fine Arts degree at Cal State Fullerton where I recieved academic scholarships for my work in voice and speech. I received them for my involvement in conducting workshops on various dialects, substitute teaching for my voice professor, and for providing many hours of individual and group coaching with well over 100 students. I currently teach 1 on 1 accent reduction and dialect coaching with American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Strommen Tutoring. I work with actors trying to neutralize foreign accents and personal regionalisms as well as individuals and business professionals. In 3 years, I have coached over 25 shows, most of which called for a great deal of accent reduction. My personal intrests are related to voice coaching as i am also an actor; In college, I received awards for shows in which I performed, such as the OC Weekly Best College Production and the Best Ensemble award. I have performed on many stages throughout the country, from the renowned (ie, The Rep in St. Louis and The Cherry Lane in NY) to the completely obscure. While theatre remains my primary fixation, living in LA has brought me opportunities to work in television and in commercials. Most recently, I appeared in a McDonalds commercial, which showcased an array of vocal skills.
I Specialize in Accent reduction with people of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I will work with you to help you better communicate, both professionally and personally. While a perfect mid-atlantic accent is most people's goal there is nothing wrong with an accent that is indicative of your cultural roots but clear and communicative.
