About the lesson

SIMON GFELLER (Accent Reduction - Elocution)

Welcome to my profile! For further questions or to start tuition, send me a message or check out my website: (concealed information)!

Based in Cambridge (U.K), I help corporate clients and members of the student and academic community improve on their clarity and intelligibility in English.

Unlike other teachers who focus on endless theory, I get straight to the point sand help you reduce your accent by:

Evaluating your accent through the creation of your unique "Sound Map"

Packaging your "tricky sounds" into digestible patterns

Addressing those patterns strategically

STUDENT DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE!!!!

I currently work as an accent reduction teacher for an established language school in Cambridge U.K. where I help non-native English speakers improve on elocution, intelligibility and vocal confidence.

I have also taught spoken voice placement, accent reduction, diction and presentation techniques at University du Quebec a Montreal, whilst based in Canada.

I work on improving your vocal projection, vocal reliability and overall confidence for public presentations. Other vocal health issues may also be addressed...Be in touch!

I am also a very active performer singing both in the UK and abroad. Recent soloist engagements include Royal Opera House (Covent Garden), Royal Festival Hall, St-Martin in the Fields, Opera de Montreal, English Touring Opera and others.

I teach voice institutionally as well as privately from my studio at home.

Please see my performing CV under the "experience" section of this Interview for more info.

I truly enjoy teaching and helping my students discover the possibilities their voices have to offer!
