Certified Teacher Tyler Seiple leads a series of Knight-Thompson Speechwork workshops for performers and public speakers (in association with Stuart Rogers’ Studios in Los Angeles). 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 Building the Accent Skill, students are invited to take shorter classes in a wide and expanding variety of accents. Using the foundation of Building the Accent Skill, students are able to integrate target accents in less time and with a clear process. Upcoming accent classes can be found here.
