About the Author

The Haydn/Sharpe Method: working with an accent can be a dream or a nightmare. The pressures to get it right to sound authentic, honest and connected grow as audiences become more demanding and the world gets smaller. Speaking with an accent is a skill just like any other: it can be learned and developed, and it is our aim to provide you with the tools to do just that. Our books and workshop provide a simple, reassuring method for both learning and teaching accents: a method that allows people to use their natural intuition in tandem with their ability to retain structure; a method that liberates the nervous while developing the skills of the keen; and above all a method that teaches not just one accent, but the underlying structure inherent in all accents.
