Certified Teacher Tyler Seiple leads a new series of Knight-Thompson Speechwork workshops for performers and public speakers in the Los Angeles area (in association with Stuart Rogers’ Studios). 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 will 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 will also introduce a more helpful, KTS-based approach to the idea of “Accent Reduction,” getting to the same result without shame or guilt.
Upon completion of Building the Accent Skill, students will be invited to take short, half-day classes in a wide and expanding variety of accents. Using the foundation of Building the Accent Skill, students will be able to break down and integrate target accents in less time and with a clear process. Upcoming accent classes can be found here.
