***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

Favorably and extensively reviewed and proven to be effective by students, the accent-reduction and/or speech synthesis program developed from dissertation research using multi-media methods. I have taught this subject for over eight years to public and private causes, as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis is an ecological approximation of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates.
The goal is to develop a comprehensive, systematic voice/accent profile based on lesson/MP3 recordings using digital audio monitoring software. Students obtain a repository of audio files during each lesson to be used for actively evaluating individual expression while waiting in line, traffic, and during breaks. Also, a crash course option exists based more on broad familiarization than intensive ...

I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Errol G. is very patient and accommodating when working with younger students.

Erol calmly and clearly answered all my Publisher questions. He also was kind enough to give me "extra" information about my computer system and how I might upgrade it. Erol is a valuable resource (and person :) ) and I will be using him again in the future.

Private Accent Reduction Teacher

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!”

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Very precise attention to detail. Goal-oriented and motivated. Positive and encouraging. What else can I say? Everything you hope for in a teacher. Couldn’t be happier with my lesson!
Kaito
Hunter is an incredible teacher! She is so fun and down-to-earth and encouraging. It really makes the learning process easier and I always look forward to our sessions because I know I'm going to learn a lot and it’s going to be enjoyable. She has a lot of knowledge about accents and dialects and different cultures and can pick out what your specific issues are fast! So glad I chose her as my coach!
Nina
Hunter is a great teacher! It's difficult to break out of your pronunciation habits, but she is tailoring my program to the specific sounds and words I'm having most trouble with.

The key to reducing your accent is a sensitive, objective hearing. We hear what we project from our minds. Very often it is not the same as what comes out of our mouths. The listener is also a judge that effects our speaking and thinking as well as our emotional state. That as you may know, effects the way we speak and also the way we perceive what we hear. The accent actually changes every day.

There is your first lesson and its free! There is much more to learn and to explore in accent reduction. I speak multiple languages and I am a professional musician with an unusually refined hearing. I possess perfect pitch, being able to identify frequency to within a range of a tuning instrument. As a conductor, I am able to hear which section and which instrument in that section is sharp or flat on a given note in the middle of playing a symphonic work.

Why is this important? It is vital to being able to identify what and where is needed to be moved as you speak to reduce

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Ron
Joseph shared his composition at the bedside of a dying man. Everyone listened and stopped crying for a moment. We were transported from the terrible tragedy into his world of beautiful music. His compassion and sensitivity of spirit touched us. When he teaches this gift to others, the world becomes a better place.

Fawn is a gifted teacher who is very considerate and cares about you as an artist and as a person. Whenever I have had to cancel last minute, she has been diligent about adding on extra time to my other lessons, to make up for it and so I don't lose out. I've never had a teacher do that for me before, I've always in the past just lost the lesson! I truly appreciate her for being so thoughtful and giving. Plus, I have been improving after every single lesson, which I can not say has ever happened before with other vocal, songwriting or piano teachers. Thanks Fawn! Look forward to more incredible growth under your direction!
Charleen
Because of Fawn's expert and original methods, I have learned how to control my voice and pitch. Fawn is a great original and innovative teacher who teaches her students how to sing correctly, quickly, efficiently and best of all, how to sing for the rest of their life! She teaches the correct way to pull out your tones and pitches and really sing those high notes without hurting or damaging your instrument, and has helped me get deeper tones in my chest voice. My voice is richer, warmer and fuller than I could have ever imagined, even in my head voice. She has given me exercises no one else has, because she tailor makes them to each individual's needs. Some of her techniques literally work like magic! I look forward to many more lessons with Fawn because I know she will help me become the very best me that I can be!
Thank you Fawn :)
Danita
Fawn is amazing and what I love most is she helps you to get clarity and focus.

I have a desire to do voice over, commercial and to enhance my public speaking. She is teaching me how to breathe, how to project and how to deepen my voice. I look forward to class every time and can't believe how quickly our time ends! I highly recommend her! She is also extremely flexible! I have the busiest schedule as a multi-business owner and she always adjusts when needed!

"I recommend Hunter to all who want to get rid of their foreign accents and sound more american. When I started this process, I thought I was a lost cause. Now, with Hunter's coaching, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I had been in the US for two decades without much improvement in my accent, and in just 6 sessions with her I started seeing a positive difference. If you tried and failed to improve your accent in the past, try a few sessions with Hunter. She has the knowledge, the experience, and the compassion to succeed where other coaches have failed. Changing how you speak can be very daunting and frustrating but, if you trust her system, you can do it. Give yourself 10 lesson/hour with Hunter and you'll most definitely see a big change. Cheers."

"After 5 hours working on accent reduction with Erol, I decided to purchase another 15-hour package and planning to study with him in the long run. Erol develops his own syllabus, analyzing my pronunciation with software, which helps a lot in visualizing what needs to improve. All lessons are recorded and can be downloaded for later review. He is quite flexible when I requested late night sessions. He is punctual and caring."

"Steve has helped our son improve his speech in record time. It took us about a year to find a person who could help us with the very specific task of guiding a teenager toward using a more formal speech in general, in terms of both vocabulary and pronunciation. English is our second language, and Steve has been incredibly creative in finding ways to show our child how to improve his management of the English language. My child's self-confidence is growing, as is his academic commitment in general."
