How good is your General American Accent?

Having a truthful General American accent is one of the most important accents for any actor.

It is the accent that allows you to sound distinctly American, but not regionally specific, as well as being a great launch pad for learning other American accents.

By breaking down the sounds, mastering placement and intonation, you will learn to make the necessary adjustments to your voice. This course will provide you with a solid understanding of the essential changes you need to make and ensure you have the knowledge required to sound more convincing.
