RP Accent in 4 Easy Parts




In this small group session, Jessica works with actors to delve a bit deeper into the RP (Received Pronunciation) accent and help you apply it to a text. You’ll look at how to break down an accent and different methods for learning, including mimicry, phonetics, mouth shaping and placement.

Week 1 – nailing consonants
Week 2 – shaping vowels
Week 3 – putting together the pieces
Week 4 – applying your new accent to text

Format:

  • Group warm-up (muted, so enjoy yourself!)
  • Chat about tone with work on specific aspects of how to nail any accent
  • Q & A, plus one-to-one work with Jessica
