    John guided me perfectly into perfecting the American Accent. Such a wonderful session filled with technique and tips. John is also an acting coach so I felt totally looked after and have booked him again to read in on my audition tape 🙂

    Thank you John, feel lucky to have access to you via Twang!

    As someone who has struggled with accents (especially getting over the insecurity of sounding silly), John was not only accommodating but is incredibly professional.

    John has made me feel like I can nail the Chicago accent, thank you for that! So I’ll be booking him again and again.

    I’d highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn the American or Chicago accent.
