I transform non U.s. actors into all american actors.

Let’s get started.

Free 'Performing with an American Accent' Guide

Welcome to Katherine Beck Training.

Your All American accent and character training starts now.

“Katherine Beck has been an incredible help to my American accent and helping me to find my voice in the American dialect. I feel more confident and comfortable when talking and working in the accent than I have ever felt.”

— William Moseley (The Royals, Chronicles of Narnia)

“I now understand the American accent, feel confident speaking the accent and have been taught effective strategies to break down scripts in a pushed time frame and can therefore deliver the best possible performance.”

— Alexandra Park

 

You are in the right place if…

  • You’re confused about the American accent and don’t know where to begin.
  • You feel like your voice doesn’t fell authentic when you speak in the American accent.
  • Your American accent sounds forced and it doesn’t feel natural.
  • You drop out of your American accent when you’re performing.
  • You lose your American accent when you’re in an emotionally high stakes moment.

Performing with another accent does have its challenges.  It’s not enough to understand the sounds of the accent. You need to be able to embody the American character as well as the accent.

That’s exactly why I created American Accent Freeway to help bridge the gap between process and performance.

American Accent Freeway is the only online program that’s designed to help guide you every step of the way as you learn the All American accent & learn how to confidently perform with the accent.

Or, if you’ve already learned the American accent and just need to practice and challenge yourself each month then join me in my monthly workout group, Ultimate Screen Actor.

Ultimate Screen Actor is your next level of practice where you can work on your self taping skills, performing with an American accent and creating authentic American characters. Best of all you get personalised feedback, accountability and mentoring each month!

“I can’t recommend Katherine highly enough to anyone trying to perfect an authentic American accent. Her instincts, guidance and practical steps are spot on to really helping you grow and achieve exactly what you want and need. She coached me a lot recently when I was doing a lead role in a US TV movie. The detail and gems she gave me helped not only my accent to sound completely authentic but also helped my performance. It really helped me meld the character as a part of me; that is to say speaking in my own voice but sounding American. The accent has a rhythm and an authenticity that should sound like its coming from a real human being and she knows how to get you there.”

— Rick Cosnett (The Flash, Quantico, The Vampire Diaries, Castle, Skybound, Happily Never After)

“Katherine was the missing piece of the puzzle for my career. Like many actors; I always thought I was on track with my American accent but it wasn’t until I started working with Katherine that I really started to understand it and realised how much I was generalising and neglecting the authentic sounds of the accent. Katherine’s attention to detail and specificity helped make my American accent feel like my own. ”
