Ongoing Sessions ~ For those who have the time and are willing to put in all the daily and weekly work that is required to learn an accent. Sessions can happen bi-weekly, weekly or every other week.
Accent Assessment ~ Do you want to know which sounds you have more challenges with? Book a 75-minute Accent Assessment and find out which sounds you need to work on the most, so you can practice them after your Assessment.
Short-term sessions ~ Need 1-4 sessions for a quick audition or speech? Schedule your session through our calendar below and send us an email to info@21Accents.com specifying your needs. Depending on Availability, our coaches can often take short-term students. (Recommended: average time for mastering an accent for a scene is 3 sessions)

Sanee is a brilliant accent coach. He has a great ear for the details and subtleties in an accent and uses easy, accessible approaches for me to improve. I now have some very quick, useful ways of getting the correct placement for sounds. I feel more confident and aware of fluctuations in an accent. I actually felt myself improve more in two sessions with Sanee than weeks with other accent coaches.”

Working with Sanee is an absolute pleasure. His technique is both fun and straightforward. He makes sounds make sense and everything becomes logical and easier! I highly recommend him!
Actress (Creds. Incl: Game of Thrones, I saved My Belly Dancer,…) – England
I had landed a role that required an upper class posh British accent. I was a bit insecure (because English isn’t my first language) but working with Sanee, it honestly came out naturally. Not only did he teach me the correct form to speak in this accent, but he also gave me advice on the delivery of my lines. Sanee is honest, motivating, and a delight to work with. I truly recommend him and would definitely contact him again for any of my future performances!”
