As the president of a dialect coach referral service, I recommend Knight-Thompson Speechwork to all fledgling dialect coaches seeking a firm foundation in their craft, and to veteran coaches desiring to deepen their knowledge and partake in intelligent discourse regarding coaching techniques for the professional actor.
Knight-Thompson Speechwork has given me the tools to listen to accents on a much deeper level than ever before. The concept of “oral posture” has changed the way I teach and do accents.
The instructors respect their students’ vocal history and the emotional connection that can come from how those students have shaped sounds their whole lives.
My students and I have a blast gurning sounds, physicalizing accents, and debating in Omnish. The speechwork is concise and inclusive. I am grateful every day that I encountered this work.
