NEW- Sing in English:

Accent training for French and non-anglophone singers and songwriters

An accent in a foreign language isn’t necessarily undesirable. It can provide cultural context and be an integral part of a singer’s identity.  However, if you’ve adopted to sing in an anglophone style, (blues, soul, americana etc ) your listeners may well have more demanding expectations of your English. You spend many hours perfecting your singing technique and style, but do you pay attention to the impact your accent may have? Glaring pronunciation mistakes and incorrect stress patterns make your performance sound less than convincing, and if you’re aiming to reach an English speaking market why leave your accent to chance? English accent training for French singers and songwriters aims to overcome this limitation. It is also adaptable to non-anglophone singers of any other first language on demand.
