So, you want to take your career to the next level and start working in the American Film/TV Industry. Only thing is you’ve tried to work on your accent but it’s not quite right… Maybe you read a book about the American accent, saw some tutorial videos online or even worked with a Dialect Coach but you’re still confused! You don’t feel confident and you’re not sure how what to do next…
Introducing, American Accent Freeway
The Actor’s Guide To Performing Freely & Confidently With An American Accent
“Katherine Beck has been an incredible help to my American accent and helping me to find my voice in the American dialect. I feel more confident and comfortable when talking and working in the accent than I have ever felt.”
“I now understand the American accent, feel confident speaking the accent and have been taught effective strategies to break down scripts in a pushed time frame and can therefore deliver the best possible performance.”
“I can’t recommend Katherine highly enough to anyone trying to perfect an authentic American accent. Her instincts, guidance and practical steps are spot on to really helping you grow and achieve exactly what you want and need. She coached me a lot recently when I was doing a lead role in a US TV movie. The detail and gems she gave me helped not only my accent to sound completely authentic but also helped my performance. It really helped me meld the character as a part of me; that is to say speaking in my own voice but sounding American. The accent has a rhythm and an authenticity that should sound like its coming from a real human being and she knows how to get you there.”
“Katherine was the missing piece of the puzzle for my career. Like many actors; I always thought I was on track with my American accent but it wasn’t until I started working with Katherine that I really started to understand it and realised how much I was generalising and neglecting the authentic sounds of the accent. Katherine’s attention to detail and specificity helped make my American accent feel like my own. ”
Performing with another accent does have its challenges. It’s not enough to understand the sounds of the accent. You need to be able to embody the American character as well as the accent. That’s exactly why I created American Accent Freeway to help bridge the gap between process and performance.
