Accent Workshop at Acting Coach Scotland in Glasgow


A huge portion of the world's film, television, and media comes out of the United States. So much so that the accent seems to be a prerequisite for the toolbox of any actor looking to take that extra step towards expanding their repertoire. 

This four week course, led by Michael-Alan Read (ACS’ head of voice, and a native of the USA), running in person at our studios in Glasgow, will give you the foundation you need to begin to tackle the General American Accent.

Each class will run for one hour and thirty minutes, and introduce you to the fundamentals of breath control, vocal anatomy, tension placement, and the shifts in articulation needed to have you beginning to sound like a star-spangled savant. 

£99 Total for 4 x 90 minute sessions.

Acting Coach Scotland is excited to offer its first in-depth part-time course in American Realism.

Each week we will learn a bit of history behind the mid-century boom in American Playwriting and building upon work with the General American accent, we will explore applying it to a scene from one of the American Masters (Williams, Miller, Albee).

This four-week course will run in-person at our Studio in Glasgow on Tuesdays from 21st September, 5:30-7pm. 

£90 Total for 4 x 1.5 hour sessions
