Hey there, hero!
The Accents Class is open for registration (https://voheroes.com/accents - and if you join before Tuesday night (10/6/20), you'll save $300 in tuition.)
And to celebrate that awesome offer, and to watch Jim, my amazing accent coach, in action, we're all going live on Facebook later this morning at 11:45 AM (Pacific time).
And you're invited!
Here's the link for the event:
My guests will include, of course, Jim Johnson, along with Dan O'Day...and one other special guest.
See, this year, I'm not going to be the subject of Jim's coaching. This year, I've asked Ms. Karen-Eileen Gordon if she would volunteer to create a new accent from scratch, with Jim's help.
She said yes.
Then, I said, "Hey...I'm going to be using StreamYard for the event. Want to join me for a preview for my podcast of what's going to happen with you and Jim?"
She said yes. Again. She's so agreeable.
So...watch the video or listen to the audio, and give me your comments below if you have anything you'd like to say about whether you have issues with accents and dialects - if they stop you from auditioning - or if you have challenges you'd like to address.
And, again, the links are above for both registering for the class, and joining us for the live event.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
