4-Week 'General American' Accent Course

  • The Umbrella Rooms 239-241 Shaftesbury Avenue London, England, WC2H 8ES United Kingdom (map)


This 4-week course will explore the ‘General American’ Accent and how actors can learn to speak and act in the accent without self-consciousness or exaggeration. The course will be a combination of group work and individual instruction, with special focus on the physical actions needed to speak comfortably and accurately. Key exercises and activities will be focused on the sound, rhythm, and oral-posture shifts found in the accent and show how these shifts can help your acting work, rather than hinder it.

This course is limited to 12 actors only. 

Sessions are on Tuesdays - 6.30pm-9.30pm (Mar. 6th, 13th, 27th, April 3rd) 

Recording session - Saturday April 7th
