Private and Production Coaching

Terri has been teaching accents and dialects in many different capacities over the past 10 years. She has worked with academic students (Cornish College of the Arts, Holy Names Academy, University of Puget Sound), individual actors, and entire productions (theatre, film and radio). Lessons and coaching sessions are catered to suit the needs of the student/productions. 

Aquiring an accent or dialect for the stage can be a very daunting task, but Terri aims to break it down and make it fun. You will learn a definitive process to create a believable character. She will teach you mouth posture, rhythm and musicality, resonance and vowel/consonant substitutions. Students/performers will be supplied with many supplemental materials: worksheets, audio recordings of native speakers, video samples and vocal exercises.
