Amy Stoller teaches accents and dialects to performers, and American English speech and diction to non-performers.

If you’re a producer or director, she’ll guide your cast in creating a consistent vocal world in support of your production.

If you’re a performing artist, she’ll help you hone your ability to “suit the word to the action.”

welcome!

 

Thank you for visiting my web site. As sole proprietor of Stoller System, LLC, I’m the resident dialect designer/coach (and occasional dramaturge) at Off-Broadway’s Mint Theater Company (since 1996). I did the dialect design and coaching for TONY Award Winner Jessie Mueller (as Carole King) and Jake Epstein (as Gerry Goffin) for Beautiful: The Carole King Musical on Broadway. I also work regularly with National Humanities Medalist Anna Deavere Smith, including Let Me Down Easy (New York, National Tour, and PBS’s Great Performances), and various other projects—you can see me working with Anna on HBO’s MasterClass. I’ve done production design and coaching for many other productions in New York and regional theatre, plus television projects including animated children’s shows, documentaries, and commercials. I’ve even won an award for my work.

I’m proud to be an Officer of VASTA, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association, and Associate Editor for New York City at IDEA: the International Dialects of English Archive. I’m also on the Board of Advisors of The Shaw Project.

Congratulations to Jessie Mueller on her TONY AWARD for Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical (on top of her Drama Desk Award)! I coached Jessie as Carole King and her co-star Jake Epstein as Gerry Goffin in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, now breaking house records at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on Broadway.

Mueller has got King’s conversational vocal delivery and sonic mannerisms down pat.

Mueller doesn’t imitate our heroine, but reflects her in many ways. She captures voice inflection and phrasing.
