Dudley Knight is one of the most respected voice and speech teachers in North America and highly regarded internationally. Janet Madelle Feindel - Associate Professor of Voice and Alexander, Carnegie Mellon University."Speaking with Skill" marks a fundamental change in the pedagogy of speech training for actors and speakers. It presents a skills-based approach to speech training and offers a wider range of techniques and a more integrated approach to speech actions and phonetic transcription than are found in other speech texts for theatre. "Speaking with Skill" reintegrates speech training with the allied fields of linguistics and voice science and represents the first serious reexamination of the archaic standards and pedagogy that have dominated speech training for actors and other professional speakers in America. The method employed in this book is already and increasingly being used by instructors on major actor training programs in the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and the UK.
