Customer Reviews

"I'd just like to say that while I've had the good fortune to work with numerous wonderful dialect coaches over the years, I've not encountered one who has done such an exemplary job of breaking down both placement and substitutions in such a clear manner. Many thanks for your wonderful work!" (September 2021)

Kevin Isola actor

"I love your research and attention to detail, and recommend your accent and dialect materials to all my students. I teach at the Guthrie Theater, and was a vocal coach for many years." (August 2021)

Mira Kehoe dialect coach

"I want to give a big shout-out to JimJohnson from @AccentHelp. English is not my first language. His #Generican materials proved to be incredibly helpful for the recording (and my everyday speech)." (August 2021 via Twitter)

Beck Millan @beckbeat

"I just wanted to send you an email thanking you for your continued great service in providing details for accents! I just finished production of “After the Rain King” and I could not have made the characters work without your accent resources." (August 2021)

Doug Causey actor

"I have to say, I am THRILLED with your dialect package. It's so thorough yet so user-friendly. The breakdown of consonants, vowels, then diphthongs made it so much less daunting to tackle a whole new way of speaking. I truly want to commend you on this work that I'm sure took you many hours to compile and package together. I will happily recommend this to all my fellow actors and my students as well." (July 2021)

Eunice Wong actress

"I ordered five accent packages in January and promptly downloaded all the materials and have been absolutely thrilled with them. I have too many nice things to say to fit them all in one email so I'll just say thank you for all you do! You've made a massive difference in this actor's life!" (May 2021)

Robby Keown actor

"I had a night to put together a Swedish dialect and I was having a very difficult time nailing the placement. I downloaded your resources and inside of ten minutes everything clicked. The downloads on your site offer far and away the most clarity in terms of dialect breakdown that I've ever encountered. I'll be replacing all of my previous resources with yours. Many thanks!" (November 2020)

Kevin Isola actor

"Your courses are excellent and so helpful. For someone like me who has known for years I was lousy at (incapable of) dialects, you’ve changed me. It feels great." (February 2020)

Robert Adrian Keesecker audiobook narrator

"I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your client follow-up - thank you for the update! And, as always, very impressed and grateful for the excellent accent tapes themselves, the best. I never worry about being able to master an accent for theater/film if it's available on your site!" (October 2020)

Karen V Lawrence actress

"As a dialect coach in the UK I use your resource quite often as I find the quality and range of the samples to be excellent." (November 2018)

William Conacher dialect coach

"I’m the artistic director of JDY Theatre, a Jewish theatre collective in Toronto, Canada. We are currently in rehearsals (over Zoom) for our upcoming production of ‘Lebensraum’ by Israel Horovitz. It is our first time working on a play that is so dependent on accents – every actor plays 4-5 characters, constantly alternating between different accents. For the past month or so, we’ve been relying on your resources – specifically for the German, Boston, Israeli, and Slavic accents. Your materials have proven to be effective, professional, affordable, and the results are absolutely incredible! Thank you for such high-quality resources!" (June 2020)

Dan Patrenko artistic director

"Thank you for creating such a great resource for learning dialects and accents. Your materials feel very accessible for performers of a variety of levels, and I am constantly impressed with the all around quality of the materials." (November 2020)

Richard Buchanan actor & professor

"Excellent! I’m really impressed. I have been doing German accents for years, but it is so important to always go back to the basics. I grew up using Blunt and Stern for guidance—but I have to say, this is incredibly thorough. Plus, you don’t rush us in your ‘call and response’—which always has been annoying in the past." (July 2019)
