Acting & Accents with Howard Fine and David Coury
In this one-of-a-kind class, students will have the opportunity to work with both celebrity acting coach Howard Fine and world-renowned vocal coach David Coury. Actors will work on a monologue of their choosing with the help and guidance of both coaches through the specifics of acting technique & then adding an accent.
First, actors will work with Howard for two classes to focus on improving the acting side of their monologue. This will include attention to interpretation, analysis, connection, personalization and more.
Building off our popular Monologue Lab format, for the final two sessions, actors will then add in an accent and work with David Coury. This provides the actor with a safe place to work on an accent they have never tried before or perfect an accent they are looking to excel in. Actors, you will learn how to add the accent without losing the acting, and how to find the voice of the character in you.
For maximum learning potential, the accents focused on in this section will be limited to the following:
1) Standard American
2) New York
3) American Southern
4) British (RP)
5) Transatlantic or Mid-Atlantic
Upon registration, actors will receive further instruction regarding monologue selection, homework for the first day, and information for joining the online class.
