Accents for Improv: Masterclass
About the class
Students will approach accents in a whole new way! Peel back the curtain on how to break down an accent, sharpen your natural accent instincts beyond stereotypes, and create impactful, next-level characters.
You’ll recognize the accents all around us, unlock the accent skills you already have, and become a better improviser by relying on subtlety and range. Never hear an accent the same way again! Students can each pick one accent to hone for the duration of the class, while learning with each other.
Hi, I’m Jordan Yanco, a dialect coach who can teach you to sound believable in any accent you wish. Whether you’ve mastered dozens of accents or are learning this skill for the first time, I will meet you where you are and help you find the shortest route to success.
I believe accents should be accessible to everyone, no matter your background or experience. I am an active member of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA), Linguistics Society of America (LSA), and the American Dialect Society (ADS).
My guilty pleasures include stand-up comedy and improv, 90′s grunge karaoke, BBQ, and New Jersey Devils hockey. I swear I watch MTV’s Teen Mom and TLC’s 90-Day Fiancee solely for the accent research.
