I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

I think Jeanne will be an excellent tutor for my accent reduction based upon our first session. I very much enjoyed her instruction and I look forward to working with her in the future.

Jeanne is AMAZING. I have been taking accent reduction lessons from her for a year now and I have really improved. Sometimes people tell me that I have no accent when I told them it’s not my first language!
Lan
I really enjoy taking Accent Reduction with Ms. Jeanne. She has a unique technique to teach English as a second language. I had my first class today and look forward to many more.

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 has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

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.

Very thorough and knowledgeable!
Jake
This is my first time taking online classes, and Bill has made it a fantastic experience. He is clear and concise in his lessons and provides homework to practice on one's own, in addition to practice during class time. In the short time I've been taking lessons, I've become much more comfortable and confident with my voice, have been able to learn about the voice acting industry as a whole, and take steps working towards my desired career. Bill is a great instructor, and I look forward to continuing my classes with him.
Sam
I found my lessons with Bill to be very helpful. Bill recognized my needs and formulated lessons accordingly. I highly recommend him to anyone who wishes to improvise on their vocal skills especially those who are multilingual. Thank you Bill for all that you do. Much appreciated.

I don’t teach accent reduction—I teach North American Dialect Acquisition. It’s not the same thing.

“Accent Reduction” feels demeaning to students I’ve worked with. Accents are simply speaking someone else’s language by the rules of your own (Trevor Noah). I don’t want to rob you of your own language; I want to help you master the rules of mine.

I share tools and techniques for speaking with the grammar, tone, and character of a locally-born US citizen with an emphasis on midwest and northwest dialects (typically regarded a "clean" or "flat" North American sound, like a news broadcaster). We approach it analytically, physically, and emotionally. Language is a full-body experience and I seek to honor your culture while adding a new skill to your collection.

I developed and applied this novel approach with two different cohorts of adult students at Tacoma Community College’s Internationally Educated Nurses program. It helped them pass their TOEFL exams and earn jobs in the United ...

"I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable."

I am French and my accent was so strong that sometimes I was not being understood correctly. We discussed first by email and she was so nice with a big teaching experience that I was sure to make the right choice.
We can tell she is a real teacher, she has great skills and she is really good at explaining !
I highly recommend her."

"Before starting working with Nicole I felt that my English pronunciation needed some polish to sound more clear. The private sessions gave me all the tools I needed to build confidence to improve my public speaking skills.

If you recently move to the US, I recommend taking some time to work on your pronunciation skills with Nicole, especially if you are job hunting. She helped me prep for my interviews and it made a positive impact on my performance.

Thank you so much, Nicole!"
