You can learn a lot about accents from working with recordings on your own, but sitting down with a coach will get you to a higher level and save you a lot of time.
Amanda specializes in identifying exactly which sounds need work, breaks them down for you, and finds a way to help you get there.
Every actor learns differently, so she meets you right where you’re at. Can’t stand the phonetic alphabet? Not a problem. Don’t learn well by ear? That’s okay too. She'll find the right path for you.
