ACTOR’S ACCENT TOOLKIT:
An Introduction to Knight-Thompson Speechwork for Performers

Online via Zoom

$90 for repeat registration
Master Teacher Tyler Seiple leads an introduction to Knight-Thompson Speechwork for performers and public speakers. This eight-hour workshop focuses on understanding what accents are and the skills needed to develop them. With a tailored blend of discussion, exercises, and context-building, students walk away with an understanding of the muscles that shape speech, the patterns that make up accents, and the tools they need to adopt any accent. It also introduces a more helpful, KTS-based approach to the idea of “Accent Reduction,” getting to the same result without shame or guilt.
Space is limited. Register now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting here for more information.
After the Actor’s Accent Toolkit, students are invited to take shorter classes with Tyler in a wide and expanding variety of accents. Using the foundation of the Toolkit, students are able to integrate target accents in less time and with a clear process. Upcoming accent classes can be found here.
