Put your voice, acting, and interpretive ability to work with personalized coaching from one of the industry’s most skilled and experienced coaches.
Becoming a successful voice-over artist requires significant dedication and hard work. It is not enough to simply have a nice voice; you must also be committed to constantly improving your skills and taking feedback from industry professionals.
While there are beginner workshops and online training programs available, it is important to note that they may not be the most effective way for beginners to develop their skills. These programs may be more helpful for refining techniques that you already possess, rather than building a foundation of voice-over skills from scratch.
Market research is also an essential aspect of the voice-over industry. Without a thorough understanding of the market and the competition, it is difficult to stand out and secure well-paying jobs. Additionally, mastering acting, timing, pacing, breathing, inflection, and reading comprehension are all crucial elements of successful voice-over work.
It is important to acknowledge that becoming a top voice-over artist takes time and patience. There are no shortcuts in this industry, and frustration is a common experience for beginners. However, with dedication and perseverance, it is possible to make a good living as a voice-over artist.

My unique approach to voice-over instruction involves a two-hour evaluation, during which I provide an honest and thorough assessment of your current abilities and potential. From there, I will create a personalized course of one-on-one instruction with extensive voice-over lessons. This investment in your career is essential for your growth and success as a voice-over artist.
Rather than offering all-inclusive packages, I believe that one-on-one or small group instruction is the most effective way to ensure individual progress. As a result, I only offer one-on-one instruction, where we can focus on your specific needs and goals. Once you have made significant progress, we can then determine the best time to create your demo.
