The Actors Centre

Accent Clinic

WHAT IS IT? Private, half-hour accent clinics. Please advise the Bookings Office which particular accent HOW WILL IT WORK? Terry will take you through the main points of the accent using: phonetic notes on the accent being studied; exercises to retrain the muscles of articulation and the breathing, rhythm and flow of that accent. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? With work and application, you will gain the ability to use and sustain an accent you were not born with, as if a native, through a rehearsal period and into performance. Price: £25.
