Actor's Accent Toolkit

The Actor's Accent Toolkit is an 8-hour workshop of the foundations of accents with Knight-Thompson Speechwork. This workshop gives you the skills you need to understand accents and how to develop them. Through a tailored blend of discussion, exercises, and context-building, you’ll walk away with the tools you’ll need to adopt any accent. 

Yes, any accent! This introductory workshop builds the strength and flexibility of your muscles of speech while outlining the universal themes that unite all accents. This workshop increases your ability to be clearly understood and develop physical skills to capture any accent with nuance and specificity. And we introduce a more helpful way to approach “Accent Reduction,” getting to the same result without shame or guilt.

This workshop was developed by Tyler Seiple, Master Teacher of Knight-Thompson Speechwork, and is alternately taught by Tyler or Siobhan.
