I don’t teach accent reduction—I teach North American Dialect Acquisition. It’s not the same thing.

“Accent Reduction” feels demeaning to students I’ve worked with. Accents are simply speaking someone else’s language by the rules of your own (Trevor Noah). I don’t want to rob you of your own language; I want to help you master the rules of mine.

I share tools and techniques for speaking with the grammar, tone, and character of a locally-born US citizen with an emphasis on midwest and northwest dialects (typically regarded a "clean" or "flat" North American sound, like a news broadcaster). We approach it analytically, physically, and emotionally. Language is a full-body experience and I seek to honor your culture while adding a new skill to your collection.

I developed and applied this novel approach with two different cohorts of adult students at Tacoma Community College’s Internationally Educated Nurses program. It helped them pass their TOEFL exams and earn jobs in the United ...

Isaac helped to distinguish the difference between creating art and copying which tapped a different side of drawing for me. Had a good session on training on seeing the tones of shades.

Isaac was great and very patiently explained everything I needed to do to get started on my guitar.

The key to reducing your accent is a sensitive, objective hearing. We hear what we project from our minds. Very often it is not the same as what comes out of our mouths. The listener is also a judge that effects our speaking and thinking as well as our emotional state. That as you may know, effects the way we speak and also the way we perceive what we hear. The accent actually changes every day.

There is your first lesson and its free! There is much more to learn and to explore in accent reduction. I speak multiple languages and I am a professional musician with an unusually refined hearing. I possess perfect pitch, being able to identify frequency to within a range of a tuning instrument. As a conductor, I am able to hear which section and which instrument in that section is sharp or flat on a given note in the middle of playing a symphonic work.

Why is this important? It is vital to being able to identify what and where is needed to be moved as you speak to reduce

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Bill has been fantastic to work with. He is a wealth of knowledge in the area of voice acting and voice control in general. He has always been well prepared, exceptionally organized and on-time, and very helpful and thoughtful in his feedback and responses. I’m heading into my 4th class and am very glad I chose Bill to work with; I have already seen improvements in both my tone and voice quality, but perhaps most importantly, I’m gaining in confidence too. Looking forward to more classes! :)

After taking lessons online with Mark, I finally started making progress with the accordion I have had for 2 years and tried to learn by myself. He does a great job teaching music theory in small pieces that I can immediately use and apply to other songs and even other instruments as I go about practicing outside of lessons. I'm so glad I started taking lessons!

Also the TakeLessons website and video chat function work well; I haven't had any problems logging on or with connection so the lessons have all gone smoothly from a technical standpoint.

First lesson and can't wait for the next and beyond. I really appreciated Mark's insights and suggestions to a song I brought to him for feedback. He was very supportive and provided actionable ideas I can use to improve it immediately.

"Since our 11 year old daughter, Ella has had lessons with Dr. D., she no longer gets anxious or stressed about Common Core Math. Ella says Dr. D. is kind and sweet, and she doesn't ever feel bad about not knowing the answers to questions. Dr. D. personalizes her lessons to our school district's Common Core curriculum and sends us emails on how Ella is doing after every lesson. Ella looks forward to her lessons with Dr. D. and she has really gained confidence in approaching math. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. D. and we give her our highest recommendation:)"
