What you'll learn in this voice over class:

This is a 3-part program: 
1. Workshop.   2. Personal voice analysis.   3. Consultation. 

This program is for newcomers who are unsure how they fit in, who need to learn about all opportunities, and determine if they have potential.

It’s a practical and comfortable way to determine if voice over is for you. The instructors of this voice over class will tell you for real. (We are polite, but candid.)
  • It's fun: This industry is full of friendly people, fun projects, and you get paid to do what you really enjoy.
  • It's interesting: The voice over field encompasses many types of projects, spanning virtually all subjects. You’re always learning something new!
  • It's creative: You take words on a sheet of paper and paint a picture with your voice.
  • It's flexible: Part-time or full-time, even work from home (pajamas optional).
  • And there are 21 types (genres) of voice over work to choose from!
However, it’s critical to:
  • Pursue the genres most marketable for your voice, delivery, interests, and goals. Doing so makes it significantly easier to get work, and the kind of work you prefer.
  • And it’s critical to learn common mistakes which prevent many aspiring voice actors from reaching their potential. 
  • Lastly, it’s critical to determine if voice over is for you. Even though this voice over class is full of people who have unique voices, we “greenlight” only 50% of the people who participate. 
The 3-Part Process:

1. The Investigate Voice Over Class starts with a fun, exciting 3-hour session.

Your coach will outline the entire industry and sample your voice-over performance, as you take a quick turn at the microphone. The class helps pinpoints your most marketable genres (audiobook, animation, commercial, documentary, etc.), and provides an in-depth understanding of what skills are required to be successful in voice over.

Specifically, you will be assessed on 3 attributes:
  • Your voice (do casting agents hire your type voice?)
  • Your delivery (do casting agents hire your delivery style?)
  • Your marketability (comfort, desire, passion, ability, excitement… is this for you?)
Each class is small, with just enough participants to give you a sense of how you stand among others, and to show your coach how you perform in front of others. In the class, the coach will be constructive, supportive and non-judgmental. The point is to guide and evaluate you, not to embarrass anyone.

2. After the voice over class, your coach prepares a detailed and candid written evaluation.

This report will cover:
  • Voice type – Is your voice distinctive? Neutral? In need of training?
  • Delivery – How well do you read aloud? Can you vary your delivery?
  • Innate ability – Some people come by performance naturally, others need more training.
  • Training – How much training will you need to become successful? How much related training do you already have?
  • How quickly did you pick things up in the voice over class?
  • Marketability – What genres (audiobook, animation, commercial, documentary, etc.) are you best suited for in voice over? (In this voice over class, you'll learn that there are more than two dozen VO genres.)
  • Potential – Are you likely to find enough work to pursue VO full-time? Or should you consider it part-time? Or maybe you and voice performing aren't a good match.
  • What kind of demo(s) would you need to become successful?
3. Then, speak openly with one of our Voice Over Advisors.

Review your performance with them. Discuss opportunities.

Using this evaluation report, we will phone you, at a pre-arranged time. You will receive our honest assessment of what path you should (or should not) take. In this conversation, the Advisor will candidly review your coach’s evaluation report with you, and discuss the sensible next step: Move forward or not. If moving forward makes sense, the Advisor will help you map out a plan of action, based on your budget, your schedule, and your goals.

Question from Peter B.
As a follow-up, assuming all goes well, do you 1: Offer to coach on creating a narrative/commercial demo and 2: Do you offer marketing feedback on how to use social media to promote your business? Thanks.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Peter! The school offers specialized training on many voice over genres, two of which being commercial and narration. They would match the student with a coach who specializes in that particular genre. As for marketing information, they offer both a foundational Marketing 101 class and more specific Marketing 201 classes. Hope this helps!

Waste of time and money. Better information in free podcasts. I’ve never had an instructor who was less enthused about their craft.

The class was great and interactive. Noel was a knowledgeable and encouraging instructor. She gave great direction and made me feel very comfortable even though I was way out of my comfort zone, I did not leave feeling terrible about. I actually left feeling like I had fun doing something new.

I really appreciated the honest feedback from the instructor. He wasn’t there trying to sell us anything. He genuinely just wanted to inform us of what the industry is like, and how it’s changed recently, to prepare us for when we moved forward with our careers.
