Accent Reduction for non-native English speakers (USA or UK English)

Welcome! I specialize in aiding non-native English speaking professionals with accent reduction. I can help you learn either the American or British English accent. I'm also able to aid a client in public speaking skills if desired.

I am a native American English speaker (born and raised in the USA), and I am a professional private voice instructor. I have several years experience teaching languages and specialize in English diction. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education and therefore have the ability to cater my lessons exactly to each individual student's needs. I specialize in developing a keen, discerning ear, and connecting that identification of sound to slight physical alterations that can make a big difference for you in your daily professional and social life.

I can help you communicate more articulately and efficiently. First I help you achieve the correct recognition and production of the speech sounds necessary for English. I will then help you use correct intonation patterns, stress, and rhythm in conversational speech. Accent Reduction will help you speak more clearly, freely, and directly.

Feel free to send me a quick message, and we can set up a lesson. I look forward to meeting you!

Great teacher that helped me a lot in a short amount of time!
She is very thorough and professional. No time wasted and a lot of work done in 45 minutes.
I hold a BM in Secondary Choral Music Education from Brigham Young University, wherein I was awarded the Barlow Music Endowment. I have been a private voice instructor, choral director, and professional opera and choral singer for over 12 years, and have taught throughout the United States and France both privately and at specialist schools such as the Children's Choir of Paris. I have performed with premier vocal ensembles on tour throughout Europe, as well as with the 8-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus. I have over twelve years of experience conducting adult and children's choirs in various community and ecclesiastical capacities. I offer singing lessons (classical and contemporary) to all levels and ages as well as musicality, language, sight-reading, dictation, and performance skills. I am patient and nurturing. I understand how daunting vocal lessons can be, and will work at building your self-confidence as well as a good technique. As your vocal instructor, I will help you to set goals that develop your unique instrument and bring out your own personality. I believe that singing is an important form of communication, and will use my experience to help you to deliver a performance with integrity and meaning. Above all, it must always be a joyful experience.

Italian is my mother tongue, I love its sound, its grammar structure, the culture it expresses.
