Sidebar – Certification



I feel confident referring Knight-Thompson Speechwork certified coaches to my very best clients.

Participating in the Certification not only encouraged a comprehensive and deep understanding of the skills required to teach and coach speech, it also provided a variety of ways to engage with this material; which consistently allows me to work with actors and students from diverse learning styles and to tailor the work quickly to suit the individual.  This is extremely beneficial when production coaching.

This work has a great sense of humor about its serious commitment to real speech skills. You will build an ear to assess how you and people around the world are actually making the sounds of speech. And then you’ll build the skills to make all those sounds yourself. It is a critical foundation for character study, development, and performance. There is no substitute for real speech of real people from which to mold a character.

I use the Knight-Thompson Speechwork approach with all my clients–from professional actors who need to speak in a dialect or foreign accent to international scholars and business leaders who want to “sound more American.” Whenever one of my clients says, “I just don’t have a good ear” I say, “You haven’t tried the KTS approach yet.” Using a physical approach to the mechanics of speech, Knight-Thompson is the fastest, most practical, thorough, and fun way to gain an accent or “lose” an accent.

Knight-Thompson Speechwork catapulted my career. The theoretical, practical, and anatomical foundation in voice and speech that I received allowed me to grow as an artist and as a teacher.
