Amy Walker: CEO, Founder
An actress/singer/songwriter since the highchair, learning authentic accents has always been part of Amy’s craft.
Since high school, directors would ask her to coach her fellow actors on set, and after the viral success of her 21 Accents video in 2008, she began offering free video tips on YouTube and coaching students around the globe through private sessions and workshops, with exceptional results.
Over the years, Amy has developed a method that is unique in the world, with multi-sensory, fun techniques that are adaptable to all learning styles. Since 2012, she has been passing on these techniques to her protégé, Chief Training Officer Alex Brown, and now to a new team of teachers who can offer this work to an ever-wider audience. With over 40 million views online, the success of her work and videos landed her on the TODAY Show, NPR, Inside Edition, and more. Learn more about Amy: http://www.AmyWalkerOnline.com
