Testimonials

Lauren is my go-to speech and dialect coach! She has helped me get rid of my Dutch accent completely and from there on out helped me develop many different dialects for jobs and (sometimes last minute) auditions. With her detailed, smart and clear approach, she will make sure that your speech sounds and feels completely natural and authentic. She is also just really awesome in general so you'll have a great time!

I worked with Lauren to prepare for a role in Coming, A Rock Musical of Biblical Proportions where I had to speak (and sing!) in a Polish accent. I was COMPLETELY unfamiliar with the accent and, frankly, panicked. Lauren was so easy and prompt with scheduling and confirmed our meeting place and time. She showed up with a multi-page packet containing sound changes, practice sentences, and resources. This girl does her homework! Essentially a cheat sheet for an awesome Polish accent. She was so specific and patient and really made the learning experience fun. I felt totally at ease and picked up the accent really quickly using her method. I now have a kickass Polish accent on my resume! I would absolutely recommend Lauren and will use her for any dialect needs in the future! Thank you for all your help!

Lauren is my go-to dialect coach. First of all, I know I'm going to have a good time when I hire Lauren. We laugh while learning. Second of all, I know I'm going to leave our sessions totally confident that I have a solid way into the dialect. She breaks down the rules of the dialect with handouts and has you repeat her so you hear the sound changes and feel them in your own mouth. She tailors her coachings to the needs and abilities of her students. From the very beginner looking to dip her toe into dialects, to the Broadway vet who needs a brush up, Lauren gives her clients exactly what they individually need. She is rad and I highly recommend her.

I had to prepare two different accents for one audition, and not very much time to do it.  With just one session, Lauren had me fully prepped and ready. I’ve never felt so confident. We got more done in less time than I’ve ever experienced with a diction coaching- and at a better price than what you’ll find around town.  Plus, it was fun!
