At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.  Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens.

Most regional speakers do not realize how different the non-regional pattern actually is from their regional dialects.  I’ve often heard actors say, ” I think I sound the same as you. Why does my agent think I need to work on my accent?” Perhaps as little as twenty percent of adult speakers have the ” good ear” that leads to skillful imitation of speech patterns. Others must use a systematic approach in order to create authentic-sounding accents and dialects.  We assist with PRONUNCIATION. PITCH CHARACTERISTICS and  RESONANCE or MUSCULAR IMPULSE.

Private or group lessons available on request for accent reduction or dialect instruction.  Contact me via the contact page.
