The K Method Creator
Andy Krieger is from San Francisco, CA. Graduated from Stanford University. He spent 2 years with the US Peace Corps in Ethiopia, Africa. He was a school teacher in Vancouver, B.C. Canada, for 7 yrs, teaching grades 7 and 10. For 14 years he worked for Warner Bros and Central Casting in Los Angeles.
Every day, he was on a movie set, hiring extras for such shows as "Pretty Woman, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Rocky IV, and 1000's of other TV shows, movies, and commercials. Andy noticed and loved the way actors talked. That way of talking will help you speak without your accent!!
In 1997 Andy returned to Vancouver Canada, working for the local actor's union, and was asked by an American movie producer, to teach Canadian actors, how to speak American, so they could work on American shows filmed in Canada. That led directly to Andy 'discovering' his K Method of ACCENT REDUCTION. As of Jan, 2020 Andy has taught over 24,000 students. Including students speaking EVERY major world language: Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Nigerian, etc.
Andy worked on the Jackie Chan movie, "The Forbidden Kingdom" as a dialogue coach. He had the pleasure of working with Jackie, Li Bing Bing, and Crystal Yifei Liu. The actor who played the Emperor in the film, could not speak a word of English, but Andy was able to get him to speak his lines with NO accent.
