Themed Workout; Scottish Accent Workshop

Eliza Simpson is a dialect coach and certified teacher of Knight-Thompson Speechwork. She specializes in audition coaching, production coaching, and accent design. She is a private coach for actors, voice over artists, international spokesmodels, and corporate executives. She is also a faculty member at HB Studios and the American Academy of Dramatics Arts.

Eliza’s accent workouts have two major differences compared to our usual Coach-Led Workouts:
1) Eliza will lead with a short lecture on the Scottish “vocal tract posture,” noting the key differences between how sounds are produced in this accent vs. our own “idiolect,” (an individual’s way of speaking.)
2) Rather than performing copy from commercials or other projects, Eliza recommends you find an “accent model,” (footage of a NATIVE Scottish speaker of the same gender/age/vocal type as yourself, or the character you are trying to portray.)
 Transcribe a passage of their speech, and do your best to replicate it!
