Dialect Coaching

Are you an English-speaking actor, voice over artist, comedian, or performer who wants to add a new dialect to your skill set? You've come to the right place!

I'm Ilana Shydlo, an experienced accent and dialect coach who has worked one-to-one with many actors, comedians, and performers over the past decade. I also worked as an accent coach on the film The Otherworld.

As a lifelong theater kid who loves performing stand-up comedy, I have a special place in my heart for performers. I enjoy spending time in the world of entertainment and helping creative people achieve their goals.

I can help you learn:

    • a General (a.k.a. standard, neutral or non-regional) American Accent
    • a New York Accent
    • variations on either of the above (for example, a West-Coast-leaning General American Accent, a 1930's Brooklyn New York Accent, etc.)

I am also available as an accent / dialect coach for stage and film productions. Contact me for more information and rates.

My style of teaching is friendly, patient, and caring. You can expect engaging, effective lessons that are custom-tailored to fit your needs and will lead you to meeting your accent and dialect goals.
