All who plan on taking the course should watch the introductory class. It is essentially the first class of the course.

The introductory class lays the foundation for the work that follows, and is an opportunity to see if the course fits your needs.

Each course consists of one 2-hour class per week.

3 levels
• level I - beginning - 6 months
• level II - intermediate - 6 months, after completing the beginning class
• advanced - ongoing, by invitation or upon completing levels I & II

When you sign up for the beginning or intermediate course, we ask you to make a six-month commitment.

The course includes, but is not limited to:

  • American vowel and consonant sounds
  • American inflection and stressing
  • American vocal patterns
  • American vocal placement
All you have to do:
  • Email Jon to inquire if there are spaces available.
  • Download the Zoom App on your phone, tablet or laptop. (It’s free and easy to use!)
  • Purchase one or more months of classes using the PayPal button below, or pay for them using your own PayPal, Venmo or Zelle account, by the day before the class to reserve your spot. (For PayPal & Zelle, make payment to For Venmo use jonjsperry.)
