An Introduction to Knight-Thompson Speechwork for Performers

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.
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.
