Modern RP 101—The Basics

June 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Modern RP is one of the most called for accents in film and probably the single most called for accent in theater.

What is it? The RP stands for Received Pronunciation. Traditional RP is the accent you hear from older classically trained English actors, like Ben Kingsley, Helen Mirren,
or Jeremy Irons. Modern RP is what you’ll hear from many educated British English speakers today (especially those under the age of fifty or so).
Traditional RP is still a useful accent to be sure—often what’s called for in period films or plays by writers like Wilde, Shaw, and Stoppard. But if you’re an actor under fifty and you’re playing an English character in the 21st century, Modern RP is what you need.

The webinar will take place on Saturday, June 10th from 12pm to 2:30pm EST. In it, you will learn specific tools for mastering some the basics of Modern RP accents, as well as clear and practical guidance for how to move forward and continue to practice on your own.

The webinar will be recorded and available after-the-fact as well, so you can view or review the recording anytime, even if you’re not able to attend live.

The webinar will designed to as to be useful to non-live participants as well as live ones. (After-the-fact purchases will include the full set of resources provided to live participants.)

Note that the webinar is not interactive. Due to the time limitations, most of the webinar will be focused on practical instruction in the accent, rather than coaching individual participants. There will be short Q&A at the end.
