Designed for actors ages 8-15, this user-friendly book (with accompanying CD) is a simplified version of Paul Meier's industry-leading instructional materials on accents and dialects. It includes the following seven dialects: Australian, Cockney, Deep South, French, New York, Northern Ireland, and Standard British English. (It may also be useful as a less demanding introduction to stage dialects for the mature student.) Coaching many famous actors in films (Tobey Maguire, Tom Wilkinson, Kris Kristofferson, and Mark Ruffalo, for example), Meier has also served as voice, speech, dialects, and Shakespeare performance professor at leading drama schools in England and America. These include RADA, LAMDA, Webber-Douglas, Drama Studio, and the North Carolina School of the Arts. In addition to his easy-to-follow practice material, for each dialect Paul coaches you in two monologues (one male and one female) from a well-known play or film, and links you to the hundreds of online recordings of native dialect speakers on the International Dialects of English Archive (IDEA), for which he is founder and director. Further enhancing the value of the book are his interactive IPA phonetics charts and information on his unique show-specific dialect CDs for hundreds of plays and musicals, custom CD recording, and phone-coaching services. Easy enough for the beginner, yet rigorous enough for the more experienced actor.
