Private Accent Reduction Teacher

My practice is based in a firm understanding of the laryngeal anatomy and a background in pedagogy the emphasizes a learning module. Clients learn to form new neural pathways to create sounds and shapes more consistent with their preferred spoken language. I also work with cases of jaw tension, and muscle tension dysphonia--both of which can make speaking and accent reduction difficult.

Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)

My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

***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 a strong Eastern European accent and sought Gabriel’s help to reduce it. He is an amazing teacher - explains well and he is really very patient and persistent with you. He tries to make the lessons funny and easy. Accent reduction takes time but with Gabriel’s method I started realizing the mistakes I make when pronouncing words just after a few lessons."

"I'm seeing Adam for accent reduction and for deepening the pitch of my voice (I sound too girly in business meetings). My colleagues really noticed a difference! It took about 8 weeks to get to the point where it was noticeable enough. I will continue with the lessons to make the it stick. Plus, it is fun! Adam makes me laugh every time!"

"Hunter has really helped me a lot! In only a few months I have almost no accent left. I came to the US for work about 5 years ago but English was not my first language. I am very educated and read and write it well, but people did not always understand me easily when I spoke due to my accent. I was also not as confident in making business presentations to my colleagues who are native English speakers. Now, I have almost no accent at all when speaking English! Finally, no more of people asking me "where are you from?" I'm really happy for Hunter's help. She is so friendly and easy to talk to and makes the lessons fun to do! I would highly recommend her coaching if you want to lose your accent and speak perfect American English."
