DIALECTS

Private and Group Coaching on

Dialects and Accents for Stage and Screen

With Becca, you will learn the nuances of sound changes, the physiological differences between dialects, and a system for self-coaching going forward. 

 

Her experience as an actor and singer gives her an unparalleled perspective on how to balance a dialect for clarity, ease of production, and accuracy. She is especially qualified for working with singers to balance the physiological needs of pitch with the sounds of a dialect.

She has 15+ dialects on file, and can learn the basics of almost any dialect in a few weeks.

AUDITION

PREP

You got the callback, but now they need to hear your best Cockney Accent. You've never been to London and you've got 24 hours to prepare. That's where we come in.

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

We've all been there: you've got the part, you're in rehearsals, and you realize that no one is there to help you learn a German Accent. Now you have a secret weapon.

PRODUCTION COACHING

Are you directing a production that requires a Dialect or Diction Coach? With six shows under her belt, coaching a cast of 30 people is a breeze. Even if they're children.

CLASSES &

WORKSHOPS

Are you interested in Dialects and IPA? Want to learn more about them before your next project? Or have you always wanted to sound like Harry Potter? We've got you covered.
