***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 have taken two lessons so far and I can notice the difference already. Erol's method of using playback software and systemic approach is great. He is very knowledgeable and a keen ear.

I took away a whole array of new strategies and techniques to help preserve my voice and to increase my range. What a surprise- I had no idea I could sing so high!! Kathleen is a wonderful teacher and a really super lady. I'll be back for more lessons in the fall.

Excellent Voice Teacher

Mrs. B is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who focuses diligently during class sessions. She thoroughly explains terms and technique and is friendly and sociable. Her extensive knowledge of languages comes extremely useful in Italian arias and other folk songs as to explain the meanings of words and to convey motion. Her classes are enjoyable and fun, while still being comprehensively academic.

Maryann was helping me prep for my High School’s production audition. After one lesson I was already a better singer and I could reach notes I couldn’t hit before. After three or four lessons I found myself becoming more and more confident and skilled and I ended up getting a lead role. Maryann’s techniques work incredibly well and I’m so grateful to her.
Sarah
Maryann worked with my adolescent son, both in-person (pre-pandemic) and on-line, to prepare him for auditions for roles in musical theater. She is a gifted instructor -- patient, creative, encouraging and keenly skilled at helping her students develop, improve and showcase their abilities in singing and acting. My son landed major roles as a direct result of Maryann's coaching. She is a treasure.
Wendy
I highly recommend working with Maryann. She is a highly skilled professional who will help you learn to read your audience and put together a great presentation. She's a great listener and will make you feel comfortable, confident and prepared.

"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."
