Voiceover instruction is the first and most important step in starting your voiceover career. This specialized form of acting is unlike on-camera commercial, stage, television and film and requires a specialized education. In order to create a voice-over demo, find an agent, and book jobs, this step is vital in your voiceover journey.

Private Coaching (in person, Skype, phone): This focused session is a great way to get the maximum amount of instruction in a relatively short amount of time. During these 1-hour sessions, you will be given a packet of scripts to study and perform. Direction and acting adjustments will be given in order to introduce and reinforce good acting habits. During our time together, you will be encouraged to ask questions and discuss any acting blocks which might be discovered during our time together.

Group Coaching: Groups sessions are valuable because you get the benefit of listening to other performers and observing how these actors are directed. Basically you can learn from their successes and avoid making their mistakes. Although it isn’t as individualized as private instruction, the ability to work and interact with other actors may prove to be invaluable in your voiceover acting journey.
