Online Dialect Coaching 

by Taylor Walter-Chapman (English coach) 

A comprehensive look at frequently sought after dialects, this coaching is an depth look at your own voice, giving you a wonderful baseline on how to achieve authentic dialects. Sessions will then move into IPA (international phonetic alphabet) and RP (received pronunciation) for the English sessions and  Neutral American Spanish for Spanish sessions, working into other dialects needed by the student. Whether you are training for voiceover work, focusing on a specific role, or looking to become more autonomous during an audition, this class’ one-on-one approach will give you the tools you need to build your individual artistry.
