Testimonialsfrom former students...
“As new and inexperienced as I was, Shelley never made me feel as such. She always encouraged me even when I was hard on myself and even though I felt at times I was in over my head, she kept telling me that I CAN succeed as long as I put in hard work and never give up!”
“Great sessions, Shelley! Every week was filled with nuggets of useable information and insight. I really feel like I learned a lot and will continue to incorporate and integrate your teachings over the coming months! Thanks again!”
“From the moment I saw your photo on your website, I knew I wanted you to be my teacher. I have been giving this much thought. I don’t know how you could improve the course… there should be an association for Canadian voice over artists. Thank you, Shelley!”
“I think the course is very good as it is. It’s challenging without being agonizing, (for the most part!). The subject matter is very interesting and the applied knowledge brings noticeable results, which is very encouraging. You are fair and critical without criticizing and that is important for students. I really enjoyed the course and I don’t think you need to change anything.”
Not only was it easy to get along with Shelley, but she is easy to listen to as well! I appreciate that she doesn’t sugar-coat anything and challenged me when I needed it. This course opened my eyes to the business and marketing aspects to which I was completely clueless to prior. Thanks to Shelley, I now have the confidence to pursue voice acting as the career I’ve always wanted. Thank you!
Thank you Shelley, I really enjoyed your course. I feel like I have a much greater understanding of the industry and what I need to do to be successful. Great and constructive feedback, excellent guest speakers, solid content.
While I would, personally, have enjoyed having more time to explore character work and development, I found the course to be informative and practical (with both studio time and practical marketing experience that is most helpful for trying to get started.) The variety of script types, however, was quite useful and allowed for some exploration as to what types of narration you are most suited for or comfortable with.
Shelley provided me with top-notch training as a voice actor. Her years in the business have given her a deep grounding in the methods and principles required to become a success in this competitive field, and she can pass this knowledge on in an engaging way.
Timothy studied with Shelley at Algonquin College and became a coaching client afterward.
