Dialect and Accent Workshops

13839964_sOverview of Online Workshops

An attractive, green alternative to in-person workshops, online dialect and accent workshops (through Skype or Zoom video conferencing) link multiple participants, at any place on the planet. Everyone hears everyone else; everyone sees and hears Paul; and file-sharing tools further enhance communication and learning. The conference is recorded as a video and instantly available on the group’s personal, password-protected, private page. Many prefer it to traditional, in-person workshops.

Or, instead of meeting via multiple computers, participants can gather in the same room and share a single webcam. Ideal for larger groups. Great for theatre and film companies, schools, and corporations. An hour, a day, a weekend, or longer.

If you are interested in a particular topic (specific dialects, accent reduction, Shakespeare performance, voice-over, etc.), share the cost with a group of friends. List some convenient dates when you e-mail Paul with your request. Also see Zoom coaching.

Technical Requirements

It couldn’t be simpler! All you need is a webcam. And with Zoom, there’s nothing to download or install.


E-mail Paul for a quote. Tell him the topics or the project, the number of participants, and some preferred dates.

In-Person Workshops

As always, Paul is still available for in-person, group workshops if you desire. Paul will design a workshop or masterclass just for your group. He offers dialects for actors, accent reduction, Shakespeare acting, or voice-over, single day or longer. If it’s acting with an accent you’re after, workshop participants receive a copy of Paul’s dialect textbook, Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen.

Many theatres schedule a workshop during rehearsal for a production for which they have leased Paul’s show-specific streaming-audio files. He works one-on-one with the show’s actors as well as with other participants.

Contact Paul for more information about workshops (online or in-person), master classes, or residencies.
