The Accent Reduction class for actors in NYC is now available online for actors and non-actors* anywhere in the world. Accent Reduction Online is great for non-native English speakers or those who want to minimize a regional American accent. This personalized online training helps the speaker become a more understandable, accessible, and versatile actor who can confidently communicate on stage, on set, and in real life. Maximize your communication skills in this fun, engaging online class taught by award-winning instructor Page Clements.

In this class, you will explore patterns of stress and intonation that will help you transition from your natural dialect to a neutral American sound. You will be encouraged to record your individual work in class to playback and practice the work outside of class. This class utilizes the book, Speak With Distinction, By Edith Skinner and introduces students to The International Phonetic Alphabet, a system created to communicate sounds in writing. Under the guidance of the instructor, participants will use this system to correctly place the sounds of American English pronunciation in their voices.

Accent Reduction is for you if...

You are a non-native English speaker who wants to communicate more effectively
You think you've got an American accent down but people are telling you otherwise.
Your thick regional accent is stopping you from booking the roles you want


After this course, you will…

Start to sound like a native English speaker
Have a better understanding of your personal articulation weaknesses and a strategy for handling them
Feel more comfortable when a Casting Director asks you to perform in an American accent

"For anyone in NYC area looking for a great voice class, Page Clements at T. Schreiber Studio is AMAZING. Took her Vocal Production class years ago & the gems still live with me to this day."
— Lamar R.
“Page taught me how to find my real, true voice, which I possessed in childhood but lost somewhere along the way. And her coaching isn’t just technical. The voice work has helped me become more emotionally available than I have ever been in my life.”
— Jon Orsini, published in Backstage
