These are the EXACT steps I teach actors (from all over the world) how to perform freely & confidently with a General American accent.
If you’re agent is telling you your accent isn’t quite there then you need to ask yourself, ‘Am I missing something in my process that’s keeping me from fully inhabiting the American accent and the American character?’ Because It’s not enough to just understand the sounds of the accent.
That’s exactly why I created my 7 Practical Steps to Performing With An American Accent so you can start booking work with an American accent.
In these 7 steps I walk you through a process that will take you from preparation (preparing your body & voice) all the way to step #7: performing freely & confidently with an American accent.

Hi, I’m Katherine Beck (American Accent Coach/Actress/Voice-over Artist)
14 years ago I left Hollywood, moved halfway around the world to Australia and thought how can I continue to work in my industry unless I can perform with an Australian accent? I decided to learn the Australian accent but hit a lot of road blocks along the way. My accent wasn’t authentic, I couldn’t sustain it in performance, I didn’t know what to do to fix it AND I couldn’t find anyone who could help me with my specific problems. So I set out on a journey to perfect my Australian accent….and I did just that 😉
In that process I developed a step-by-step system that I teach to Non-US Actors who want to learn how to perform with an American accent and because I live overseas I get where you’re coming from and I know how to get you past your accent roadblocks so you can sound more American and start booking more work!
