We will contact you two weeks prior to the start of the workshop to let you know if there is space for you and provide you with a discount code for 1/2 off the full price of the workshop (discounts cannot be combined).

There is also a PART ONE ONLY OPTION for $550 USD ($450 USD with union membership)!

This three-day session (Part One) focuses on:

Awareness and practice of precise articulation action

The physical actions that produce all the sounds of the world’s languages—”Omnish”

Vocal Tract Posture—the articulatory basis for the sounds in accents and languages

This session will also prepare the participant for Part Two, which includes detailed phonetic transcription and an exploration of the skills of adjusting linguistic detail in speech. (No phonetic transcription will be used in Part One of the workshop.) Email knightthompsonspeechwork@gmail.com if interested in a PART ONE ONLY OPTION.



In order to plan effectively for these workshops, it’s important to have a clear sense of the commitment of potential participants. For that reason we ask for a deposit of $200 USD to secure your place in the workshop. This is due six weeks prior to the start of the workshop, on October 30th, 2021. The full payment is due three weeks prior to the start of the workshop, on November 20th, 2021. If your plans change, and you are unable to attend, we will refund any payment less $75 USD if you inform us by November 27th, 2021. After that date, however, no refunds are possible. Please plan accordingly.
