Becoming a Voice Actor is a 14-week workshop offered in the fall and spring that covers the basics of voice acting and getting voice work.  By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  1. Develop your voice with breathing and relaxation exercises for warm-up
  2. Warm-up connecting the voice and the breath
  3. Understand sound and vocal production
  4. Use a microphone and headset correctly
  5. Understand the fundamentals of voice acting and characterization
  6. Understand studio etiquette and production values
  7. Understand the audition process
  8. Prepare for auditions
  9. Understand what a demo tape is and why you need one
  10. Understand the business side of voice work for marketing
  • Voice acting is a process that is different for everyone, depending on your experience. If you are a seasoned actor already, you may be further along in the process than someone just starting out in the business.
  • The course is designed to be as a close to reality in how the business works. As is done in the business, an audition is required. This voice file becomes a baseline for the rest of the course, for students to hear their progress from beginning to end. It is done at the beginning, repeated at the halfway mark, then again at the end.
  • Each week, other scripts are recorded and students receive a CD with the voice files from the 14 weeks.
  • Guest speakers, such as producers and talent agents are invited to discuss industry expectations and marketing with students.
  • Throughout the course, her feedback will help you understand how to find your own voice and market it.
