Fall 2019

Taught By: Susan Cameron

Section: A

CRN: 1128

Credits: 1

In the fall semester, the Neutral American Speech 1 class presents the overview of consonant and vowel sounds. The students are responsible for learning the entire IPA system. Specific work in the fall focuses on vowel shapes and on the elimination of all vowel dialects or regionalisms, as well as correct placement of “S” and alveolar consonants. Within the broader context of the New School for Drama course of study, first semester of Neutral American Speech 1 will establish the foundation by which the actor learns to eliminate regional dialect and maladaptive habits in his or speech and attain clear, comprehensible, and regionally neutral speech for use on stage and screen. The actor also establishes a neutral basis off of which to base the sound changes for dialect work in the second year.

Students who wish to enroll in a graduate theater course at The New School for Drama must be accepted into the graduate theater program as a full-time student.
