The "Eloise" charm free formed swirling shapes accented with a dark background SquareColored 5 out of 5 stars Many of us do it so naturally and if like me you can speak a few languages then the prospect of figuring out how that happens was intriguing. We were soon putting our mouths, mirrors and brains to good use. We started by reading a short story that would become ingrained onto our psyches — Arthur the rat.
Yvonne took us up and out of ourselves with this active workshop which saw us punch, press and wring among other Laban actions. A real eye opener for anyone interested in deciphering the magical code of accents — a physicality as well as a vocal skill!
My favourite was pressing, kneading out dough, to impress the importance, focus, direction and power of the voice. All very important for day 3 as it turns out! Now I know my velum and epiglottis from my uvula and alveolar ridge! An accent is a whole structure, comprised of so many elements that Yvonne really took us on a journey. What fascinated me most is how accents move, get on ship, sail into the unknown, land and then again transform. With a list of vowels, consonants and the all-important ZONES we were coming close to working out how an accent is structured. If like many of us VOs in the UK you work in RP you will find your tongue, not firmly in cheek but rather in Zone 2 — or the alveolar range.
Combine all this together and we found that, just as you bake a cake with different ingredients and measures you can even get quite a few versions of our beloved RP. I loved being a Wartime Wendy in day 2, clipping away at the RP with an abrupt infinite manner. With elegance and flourish we waltzed through RP texts, dabbing at words hither and tither.
Boarding the merry ship with my fellow ship mates on day 3 we sailed across the pond we landed on the shores of the Standard American accent. A rhotic language where the expressiveness focuses on the vowels. To realise where that energy comes from immediately turned us from quiet church mice into loud, excitable puppies.
Thank you for signing up!
The best moment was when Yvonne described us as being like a group of American tourists getting off the tube! Praise indeed! Yvonne succeeded in opening my eyes and vocal cords, muscles and tongue with a set of exercises to unlock the mysteries of accents. An amazing approach to accent development, one which, with a little bit of patience, plenty of practice and full mental submersion of the culture, history and attitude will get you to where you want to be!

Voice artist Mary Cha found it just as useful - 'Yvonne really taught us "how to fish". She showed us the methods and tools to RP and American accent. We just need practise to perfect it. The workshop was really fun, informative and lots of interactions. Three days of perfecting and fine tuning our standard RP accents.
Yvonne is a true vocal Pro who discussed the many articulators and their uses, whilst we also learned about vocal health.

A vital workshop for any Voice Over Artist. Narration voiceover Ana Clements found her Eureka moment - 'I thought accents were about the voice but they are about the attitude and body language that you bring to the character. I am watching people and listening so differently - and seeing so much more. Get on the accent ship and set sail for new vocal territories, you might be surprised what you find when you get there!
