About the 2 CD set:

Dialects and Accents for Actors, Storytellers and more....

American Accent for Canadian Actors is a self-instructional program in the Acting With An Accent series prepared by a speech teacher and dialect coach to the stars, Dr. David Alan Stern. He doesn't use "tricks." Instead he teaches the basics of convincing dialects – resonance, lilt, sound substitutions and pace. He explains pronunciations, word choice and touches on idioms.

American Accent for Canadian Actors is not just samples for imitation, but contains step-by-step, systematic lessons for Canadian Anglophones playing or auditioning for American roles; teaches American speech inflections, vocal resonance, and pronunciation changes. Each packet contains a manual on CD and an 80-minute-long instructional CD that teaches you Lilt, Stress, Resonance and Pronunciation.

Dr. David Stern is a master dialectician and teacher of film and TV actors. He has taught at several universities and at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. His Acting With An Accent compact discs are used in over 1000 university theatre programs and by professional actors around the world.
