How to speak with confidence, comfort and command! Oration/Voice and Speech/Accent reduction training - Stella Adler Studio of Acting Graduate

Methodology

I use freeing voice and speech techniques to unlock any hang ups you have with speech and can also give extremely specific feedback with regards to accent reduction or personal difficulties with speech. I am a warm character and it's very important to me that we work in a safe space where you are able to realize what you're capable of.

I like to run the same 10 hour full course with each student. We can carry on further but I believe after 10 hours you'll notice massive differences in both yourself and how others react to what you say.

For those looking to gain an RP (received pronunciation) accent I will teach you how to break down language into speech units with proper pronunciation. Learning an accent is more of a physical practice than intellectual for the student, with repetition being key. So, you will be left with exercises to do between classes in order to strengthen learning.

Atticus's CV

We will be using training techniques from a plethora of practitioners, mainly Cicely Berry. I've had 4 years of voice and speech training from renowned voice coaches such as Rebecca Cuthbertson, Andrew Wade and Alithea Phillips, a lot of what I teach comes directly from them.

I am a professional, working actor with agency representation and I am the founder and director of 55 Kings, a contemporary theatre company that has been operating for 4 years.

Atticus is responsible, trustworthy and highly professional. I have known him this summer while working as Senior Teacher on a residential summer schools for secondary age students.

He would be an asset to any team, and us particularly gifted as a teacher to children and adolescents.

Damien

I've known Atticus for years now, and I'm always blown away by the extensive knowledge and intelligence he possess. He's very well read, and has the inclination to delve deeper into the subjects he's studied to formulate ideas that show in his teaching. He's also a great guy and one in whom people look up to. I highly recommend him!

Interview with Atticus

QUESTION 01 | 08
Do you speak this language fluently because of your origins or because a teacher inspired you to learn?
Atticus — I am a native English speaker with over 4 years of professional training in voice and speech.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Can you name a living, historical or fictional character that you think is the emblematic representative of the RP accent's culture?
Atticus — RP is an accent that is used by people who want to be better understood, it is not so much a regional accent but a travelling one. Therefore it's the accent for any person who has the bravery to base themselves somewhere new or to leave their comfort zone.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Is there a typical word, phrase, tradition or behaviour in the RP accent that you particularly like?
Atticus — The fact that specificity in sound and clarity are two key features of the accent make it a particularly generous way of talking.
QUESTION 04 | 08
Why does speaking in this accent matter to you?
Atticus — Being understandable and confident when you talk are absolutely key to you feeling capable and avoiding becoming frustrated. Every accent is equal but it's important to be generous enough when we talk that our message and simply our words can be taken in. The RP accent is worth learning as it helps people focus on what you're saying rather than how you're saying.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What is the main difficulty in learning this accent and what can help the process of learning?
Atticus — Learning an accent or any speech training is a physical process, you have to understand that there is a detachment between your brain and the articulator muscles so we have to repeat exercises and always be applying the training during a regular day. The training works you just have to do it!
QUESTION 06 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to your learning or your days at school.
Atticus — During my first ever voice and speech lesson I was told to not raise my shoulders when I breathed in. I thought this was impossible. It's not. It's always surprising how concrete we believe our physical habits to be, to learn a new way to do something you have to learn to be flexible with the old way.
QUESTION 07 | 08
How has travel or a specific trip helped you to increase your skill and knowledge of what you teach?
Atticus — I lived in New York for three years and it was necessary to standardise my accent to RP in order to be better understood so I can empathise greatly with those who seek out lessons with myself. It's frustrating trying to fit in and not even being able to be understood but the solutions are readily available.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What makes you a Superprof in voice training?
Atticus — Besides my extensive professional training and teaching experience I am a calm and honest character who is very flexible in my teaching approach. I like to suit each lesson and way of teaching on an individual basis. Also I've been through what my students go through!
