Fundamentals of the Accent (6 sessions over 6-Week course)
This course is dedicated to giving you a very strong foundation to build upon and create what becomes an invaluable part of your character.
Paige takes you through the main differences between the accents and how to locate the changes you need to make, in a fun and comprehensive way. She leads you through pure vowels, diphthongs, triphthongs, the dreaded r and the liquid u. You will receive problem-specific exercises to help create muscle memory around the new sounds and then apply that to cold reads and script work. The Fundamentals Course is six 55 minute sessions and can be done from 1-3 sessions per week.
Work individually with Paige on course work or audition preparation. Each session is 55 minutes and you will receive exercises to build muscle memory and learn how to score and break down a script for the accent.
Small Group Classes 5 weeks (15 hrs)
Work in a group of no more than 6 people through the Fundamentals of the Accent. Learn through practical work and listening to others in the group. Finish the course off by applying the work to scripts in performance. The classes are 2 ½ hours in duration and the course runs for 6 weeks.
Weekend Intensives (Two weekends)
Working within a group, over 2 weekends, learn the Fundamentals of the Accent, build muscle memory and gain specific insights into the accent, learn how to ‘score a script’ and apply the knowledge to cold reads. Find out how to slate and have a short chat to camera and how to get out of your head when you are in the room. You will be given a monologue and a scene to prepare for the second weekend, which is dedicated to acting with the accent. Each participant will be given an on-line training manual and an additional half hour Skype audition prep.
Break down and score your script and find your voice in the American accent for your scene. Paige will take you through different scenarios to allow you to learn to play in your scene work and be prepared for what may get thrown at you in the room and build your confidence around your accent work. Each session is 55 minutes in duration.
If for any reason you are unable to attend your classes in person Paige can do all classes and audition preparation via Skype. Paige works with clients all over Australia as well as in LA, New York, Hong Kong, Thailand, New Zealand and the UK. Each session is 55 minutes in duration.
Acting with the Accent (Masterclass Series)
