About the Booklet and CD:

Paul Meier, a leading teacher of accents and dialects, and dialect coach for theatre and film, has helped actors the world over for more than 40 years with his booklets and CDs, to improve their "acting with an accent."

Accents and Dialects for the Younger Actor (approximately 32 pages and 30 minutes of recording on the accompanying CD) is a simplified version of Paul Meier's instructional material suitable for ages 8-15. May also be useful as a less demanding introduction to stage dialects for the mature student.

Dialects covered in Accents and Dialects for the Younger Actor are: Australian, Cockney, Deep South, French, New York, Northern Ireland, and Standard British English.

Using their clear demonstration and simple exercises, no matter what your level of training, you will quickly become proficient in the English dialects, foreign language accents, and character voices you need in films, theatre, TV, radio, voice-over, ventriloquism, and stand-up comedy. These proven materials demonstrate all the "signature sounds" of the dialects in simple word lists, then in practice sentences, and finally in more challenging practice material. Paul Meier also demonstrates rhythm, intonation, and tonal placement.

All practice sentences and monologues are expressed both in the International Phonetic Alphabet (I.P.A.) and in Paul Meier's successful "number keying" system for the non-I.P.A. user. He concludes by speaking two great audition monologues (one male and one female) from a play or film in the required dialect.
