Accent Coach Jack.jpg


Who am I?

I'm Jack Wallace, and I'm dialect coach based in Los Angeles, originally from the UK.  I work with working actors and business professionals all over the world via web meetings and in person.

Why do I teach accents?

I was born and raised in Warwickshire, to a Northern Irish mother which piqued my interest in accents from an early age and led me to study them formally. I hold a BA in Drama and Ethnomusicology from Queen's University Belfast and an MA in Professional Voice Practice from Birmingham School of Acting.

What does being a "registered" coach mean?

As a registered dialect coach with, I have completed their extensive vetting process. This accolade gives you peace of mind that I have skills and qualifications to be a professional dialect coach.

What is a session like?

I coach the majority of my clients via web meetings. Sessions typically last one hour and we will likely use several different techniques.

From your own voice, I am able to pinpoint the exact sounds that need to be honed to achieve your target accent.

Although I like to focus on specifics to get an accurate version of an accent, I always encourage a sense of play in the sessions to help your accent sound more natural.

When should I hire a coach?

Most actors hire dialect coaches when they have an audition coming up, have booked a role or when they want to make themselves more marketable.
