Instructor: Tony Alcantar

Whether you're Canadian, Aussie, Kiwi or British, the Vancouver film/TV/VO market demands a solid Standard American accent.  In this 6-week class you'll learn and practice this valuable skill by learning the sounds, words and vocal mannerisms which out you as a non-American (and equally as important) how to fix it!  No more will you be perplexed when you get a script, you'll be ahead of the curve.  This will be the difference between booking a role and looking for another day-job shift.  

"After working with Tony I have been asked several times where my American speech patterns came from. The ultimate testament of Tony’s dialect coaching was recently when I was voting here in BC...an elections officer mistook me (I am Canadian) for an American by my accent alone, reminding me that Americans cannot vote in provincial elections!!!"

“..I saw your ability to take twelve individuals, all with different needs and at different skill levels, and make it possible for each individual to learn significantly more...You simplify every situation. Then build on that simple foundation. Results are immediate and often amazing. Your years of improv and voice coaching bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each class.”  Norm Leavoy, actor
"It took me 4 years to find a teacher like Tony.  If you're a hard worker, investing in his classes are an investment in your career."
