- Colin Hanks, Golden Globe, and Emmy Nominee

“After working with Tony I have been asked several times where my American speech patterns came from. The ultimate testament of Tony’s dialect coaching was recently when I was voting here in elections officer mistook me (I am Canadian) for an American by my accent alone, reminding me that Americans cannot vote in provincial elections!!!"

- Dylan Playfair, Leo Winner


“I had such a fantastic time working with you. Honestly, it was such a pleasure. I really appreciate your approach to (dialect) work and never once did you put pressure on me. I have had experience with other dialect coaches in the past and it has most definitely felt like that, so thank you very much for making it fun!

– Scarlett Byrne, actress FALLING SKIES (seasons 4 & 5)

“Your work is great!"

- Shawn Doyle, Gemini Winner

- Morgan David Jones, Australian actor working in Vancouver

“I had the good fortune of working with Tony to prepare for an important audition. This was my first time working with a dialect coach and he set me completely at ease. He was knowledgeable, kind, and dramatically improved my audition. He is a master at dialect training but also has the unique insight of being able to break down the scene and give phenomenal acting notes to enhance your work. I can say with complete assurance that anytime I have any dialect needs, I will be calling Tony!”

"I approached Tony Alcantar for help with learning an American accent for Mr. Young as I feel comfortable with him and feel he supports my efforts as a young actor. (To date I have completed 81 episodes of this show) Tony's knowledge with comedic timing has also helped me with my always challenging job on Mr. Young. Tony gives very clear messages and breaks down what he is teaching so that it is easy to understand. I would recommend Tony as an on-set dialect coach.”

- Gig Morton, Leo Nominee

“..I saw your ability to take twelve individuals, all with different needs and at different skill levels, and make it possible for each individual to learn significantly more...You simplify every situation. Then build on that simple foundation. Results are immediate and often amazing. Your years of improv and voice coaching bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to each class.”
— Norm Leavoy, actor
Thank you for an amazing first class, today! You were able to calm my fears immediately, putting me at such ease, that I was able to focus and learn what you were teaching. My only regret about taking your course, why the hell didn’t I call you sooner!?!?!
— Warren Tkachuk, actor
