Highly Recommended 

Working with Sarah gave me the confidence to move beyond merely getting the accent right into fully integrating the voice into the character.

It was so easy to share scripts and receive recordings and have them accessible on my phone.

Perfect for people looking for a mid-1990’s middle-aged male accent 32 miles Northwest of Liverpool!

I was very daunted when I was told two weeks before shooting that my character on Underbelly was no longer a Kiwi and now had a strong Lancashire accent.

In fact daunted would probably be the understatement of the century!

However, Sarah soon came to the rescue and with her help the whole process was far easier than I had anticipated. She broke down every line with me and her support filled me with the confidence I needed.

I would definitely call on her again should the situation arise.

10 Day British RP Accent Challenge
This course was super helpful as an actor.
I highly recommend it for young actors who feel insecure in their voice. It helped give me the confidence to use my voice and different ways and it definitely helped me with my diction! Sarah is amazing and super helpful.

Couldn’t recommend this course more highly!

Emma Haye - 21 Day American Accent Challenge
Emma Hayes

I did the 10 day Standard US accent and I loved how specific and tangible the information, instruction and practice was.  Sarah isolates and clarifies particular sounds and explains how to make them.  The work is incremental; starting with single sounds, then words, then sentences and then a whole text.  The feedback is clear and redirects the student to particular sounds and intonation that need work.  I loved that the US accent suddenly became “learnable” .  I am definitely going to do more courses with Sarah.

Not only does this course help you form the sounds needed for the accent it also trains your ear to hear the accent and the daily practice really helps cement the accent into your body and mind!

Euan Shedden
The 5 day accent practice was a great way to learn a technique with which to practice any accent and it especially helped with the American accent! I still have a long way to go, but it gave me the right tools and I know what to work on! I would definitely recommend it!
Nicola Ditter

Working with Sarah is fantastic as she has a fun, friendly and professional approach, providing a helpful technique that breaks down learning an accent into steps that are easy to understand and practice, and her honest feedback is invaluable.

As a beginner in learning a new accent, this course was a perfect way to lay those foundations that I will definitely continue to use in the future. It was so easy to get into and Sarah is very informative about the what’s, why’s and how’s of the accent (if that makes sense).

Having already taken the 10 day Standard American Course with Sarah I jumped straight into British RP. As a Brit with a noticeable regional accent I wanted to prove to myself I could sound authentic without being over the top. Sarah’s unique style and delivery made learning easy and fun and helped me gain confidence in the process.

I ‘ve never done a proper accent, and taking this course was a really fantastic beginning into learning what it takes to learn RP and apply the methods used to learn any accent. The methods used to learn the words and phrases were simple and effective and the encouraging feedback does make you want to learn properly and continue on the journey of accent learning. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 Day American Accent Challenge

It has been an awesome and exhilarating 10 days. I am so happy I did this course. Now I can clearly hear when I make the wrong sound and am able to correct myself. I was never able to do that before. Thank you so much, Sarah!

Sarah is patient, methodical and within an hour she was able to pinpoint my trouble spots and help to make my American accent flawless. She is an incredibly talented lady being able to pull out so many accents and do them perfectly. I will most definitely work with her again.

I contacted Sarah when faced with the daunting task of auditioning in a Scottish accent, something I’d not done before, nor ever really prepared for. Spending an hour’s coaching with her assuaged many of the fears and anxiety I had around the accent, and filled me with the confidence I needed to actually go in the room and put forward something worthwhile to the casting director.

I was quite nervous to meet Sarah for my accent session but she soon put me at ease and gave me confidence to learn an American accent. I look forward to further sessions with Sarah as I trust her expertise to perfect my accent.

Arlene Meder

I have never taken accent coaching before and it was my first time. It was so easy to understand what Sarah taught me as she was helping me not only just learn but live the accent too. I was late to the class so she spent extra time with me without charging me extra. It was a great experience sitting and learning from her.

Mani Singh Saini

Sarah made me feel at ease and was very professional. Your one-hour session has really helped me break though with my accent struggle. I will definitely come back for more, I highly recommend Sarah.

I had never learnt an accent before and was worried I would not be able to master it in time. In the few hours we spent together Sarah was able to teach me the tools necessary to learn an accent and also help prepare me for my audition.
