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.

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!”

When looking for a teacher...... It's so important to find someone who is really right for YOU. ...

Hunter has been an amazing teacher. I was completely new to the acting world, so not only did she have to teach me acting but she also had to teach me about the business. I started off learning a little bit of everything, from scene study to improv to voiceovers, and now I am focusing on commercials. She has been great at helping me set attainable goals, introducing me to acting resources, and coming up with creative ways to draw out the actress in me when I am struggling with a line. I also appreciate her honesty and how prepared she is for each lesson.

i am so thankful i found hunter! as a beginning actor, it has been hard to find the guidance and knowledge of the business aspect of the industry and how and where to best market yourself. hunter's mastery of this information has already answered so many of my questions that i've been desperately searching for. she is the sweetest and has already boosted my confidence and hopes of propelling my career forward.

A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!
Forena
When I began my Masters in Music, the university told me to find someone that I wanted to work with one on one. I decided to approach Fawn because of her specialty in improv, Jazz, her knowledge of a variety of styles and her experience as a vocalist. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She helped me to feel confident approaching Jazz and I will always be grateful. Fawn is brilliant! I enjoy every lesson and continue to improve and lean new skills from her! Highly recommend Fawn

Nicole helped me to understand and correct my mispronunciation. She is an amazing and dedicated teacher with an incredible amount of patience.
After the completion of our classes I received a promotion at work and I attribute it in part to the improvements I made on my speech.
Thanks to Nicole I'm not uneasy any more about conference calls :-)
I highly recommend her!"
