This is one of my absolute passions! Did you know that “regionally specific dialects” change approximately every 20 miles? Part of my vocal training included a deep dive into dialects or accents, how to master them and how to lose them. This is so much easier than you may think! It’s all about small modifications, mostly in the mouth and jaw that can completely change the way you sound.

How many sessions you need really depends on how much work you’re willing to put in between sessions. I can give you the keys, but this is really a case of practice makes perfect. If you find you’re not booking because of your accent, let me help you master “LA speak” otherwise known as the “non-regionally specific U.S. dialect”.

Hint: I’ve lived in 8 different countries so far and in the last month I’ve had 2 of my long time acting coaches say “Wow… I would have never known you weren’t from LA!”

"I have been taking accent reduction training with Erol since Feb. this year. Although I'm not exactly a fast learner, he has been very patient with me the whole time. Recently, because of my interest in voice acting, he's started to use a PC game (Tomb Raider) to help me to improve my accent. I believe he has taken our training to the next level, and I always look forward to attend his lessons."
