  • Access Accents: Received Pronunciation (RP) - An Accent Training Resource for Actors

    Access Accents bring the highly sought-after voice techniques of top voice coach Penny Dyer to the actor's audio device. They offer a unique opportunity to prepare for auditions at short notice.

    Story

    This audio recording forces you to listen to a "lesson" in Received Pronunciation where the "student" is an actress with a strong native Irish accent. The "student" and "teacher" spend most of the time in a meandering chat that is NOT in Received Pronunciation. We then hear the actress improve her RP accent very slightly so that by the end of the recording she merely has a bad RP accent, as opposed to an outrageously bad RP accent. There are precisely give minutes of practice words, phrases, and sentences in good RP at the very end of the recording. This is an absolutely worthless recording and one that will not teach you anything useful.

    Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) was recognized in his lifetime as the greatest living artist, creator of a succession of masterpieces in sculpture, fresco painting, and architecture. In all his work, Michelangelo impressed his contemporaries as a forceful personality, a divine genius endowed with terribilita, or intense emotional power.

    Story

    This is an excellent biography for readers who already have some knowledge about the Italy and Europe of Michelangelo's time. The author is thorough and fair. He makes good use of letters and other documents. The book is long but that is because Michelangelo lived a very long life and worked on many projects. The text moves at a good pace. If you are not reasonably familiar with the period--for instance, if you do not already know who Charles V and Francis I are--you should probably start with a more basic book. Otherwise, you might find it confusing when the author refers to Michelangelo's contemporaries with only slight background information.
