What if you could do literally ANY accent or dialect for a role? What is the secret of the great animation “utility voice” professionals who embody hundreds of different character voices during a single season of great shows like South Park or The Simpsons? Chameleons like you are attracted to animation as a career, but what specific skill set separates those talented folks who don’t work regularly from the working character actors casting directors love to hire? In this intimate workshop, dialect coach and voice star Eliza Jane Schneider (South Park, Curious George, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will walk you through her scientific 3-prong method for learning or losing ANY dialect or accent quickly.

If your own accent is holding you back, she will teach you how to treat Neutral American as just another dialect to be mastered. Her unique “looping method” has been proven to reduce dialect acquisition time by 90%, and she has been hired to guide the creme de la creme of character actors into perfecting their dialects and accents for roles in everything from Animation to Interactive to on-camera!


  • Understand how to nail ANY dialect or accent from just a recording of a native speaker.
  • Learn the biggest mistakes American actors make in trying to nail foreign accents, and the biggest mistakes foreigners make in trying to nail Neutral American.
  • Learn to identify the VOCAL POSTURE of any given dialect, accent, or character voice, and use it to “Springboard” into applying it to your audition copy, as well as how to use physicality to jump back and forth between character voices seamlessly.
