Accent Workshop: Standard British
DATE: August 12 | 7:00 pm ET
DESCRIPTION: Standard British is one of the most frequently-requested accents for actors, yet one that many find intimidating. Step by step, we break it down, addressing its placement, signature sounds and intonation. We also cover tips for rehearsing and performing in it with confidence. Each participant will receive a packet of sample words and sentences, with audio accompaniment, for continued practice at home.
