Southern States - American Accent Training

Southern States - American Accent Training

Expand your accent repertoire, and increase your casting net, in our fun and practical ‘Speaking from the South’ American accent workshop.

The southern Tennessee accent is a very popular accent commonly used in American writing and heard in films and plays in Hollywood and Broadway, but frequently used in the West End and fringe plays in the UK.

Identify the key sound changes, practice with and without text, and hone your accent under the guidance and exercises of our vocal expert. All our workshops are lead by professional voice tutors with a wealth of experience and training from the leading institutions.

The ‘deep south’ accent is commonly mistaken for a generalised sound but plays and parts need specificity, these are the considerations a casting director will make when picking an actor for a role.

'Speaking from the South' - American accent training course content:

  • Learn the difference between a general american accent and mid-South accent
  • Explore the physical rhythm of the southern Tennessee accent
  • Understand the oral posture required to produce the correct sounds
  • Use exercises to help you translate your accent to a script
  • Feel more confident speaking with a southern Tennessee accent

Throughout the workshop you will receive friendly one-to-one support and feedback from your expert vocal tutor. All scripts and texts will be selected specifically for accent training and be provided by your tutor.
