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.)

You'll see voice over work is exciting!
  • It's fun: Work on interesting projects
  • It's creative: Add life to words
  • It's flexible: Part-time or full-time, work from home (pajamas optional)
  • And there are 21 genres 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.

It was a good experience and informative. It was nice to read copy with a professional and the feedback was succinct and helpful. The class size was a bit large, with 10 people being a bit crowded. We did go over time though to make sure everyone was given a chance. Instruction was clear and smooth, the informal nature helped to put everyone at ease and I was made to feel at home immediately upon entry.

The class was a really really good. David Goldberg was awesome, he gave us so much useful information about the industry of Voiceover and he was patient in answering all of our questions. If I had one suggestion it would be that we got to get on the mike and record a bit more, other than that the Investigate Voiceover class was a useful tool to see if we had what it takes to be a player in the VO industry. I also love how the evaluation email came promptly the next day and in my case it was a favorable one, also followed up with a phone call from Edge studios at the time that David said we'd be receiving a call. Very very prompt!! I look forward to beginning my VO career and look forward also to having great success in this field. Thank you so much!! JoAnna :)
