Whether you're an actor wanting instruction and coaching in accents, voice-over, or Shakespeare; an ESL student or a regional-dialect speaker needing "accent reduction"; a person requiring coaching in public speaking; a linguist seeking a greater understanding of phonetics; or someone who wants to learn an accent just for fun, Paul Meier is your guy! Paul has been teaching British and American dialects, and foreign-language accents, for more than 45 years in the United States and his native England, coaching the biggest names in movies — Tobey Maguire and Mark Ruffalo, for example — and hundreds of plays, films, and musicals. With his long experience as a voice-over artist (the voice of Walmart's Smiley), as an actor in audio books (Ayn Rand's Anthem), and the founder of IDEA, he's uniquely qualified to help others in these fields. And his top-selling book, Accents & Dialects for Stage and Screen, has become the industry standard.
