Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her.

Private Voice Acting Lessons Near You

Perhaps the most famous voice actor was Mel Blanc. He got his start in radio, comedy, and eventually became famously known as "The Man of 1000 Voices" because he voiced multiple characters including Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and several other Looney Tunes characters, as well as nearly all the characters of Warner Bros. cartoons and several characters from Hanna-Barbera cartoons. 

You don't, however, have to have the deep, rich, booming, solid-gold voice of a classic radio personality to become a voice actor or voice artist; the truth is there's plenty of demand in the industry for all types of voices. Many actors, actresses, and broadcasters transition into voice acting careers, but others get their start with the intent of becoming voice artists. 

Becoming a voic

...

e actor really takes drive, talent, lots of practice, and creativity. With the right training and direction from a professional voice acting tutor, you could be well on your way to making a real living by voicing characters or providing other voice-over services in a variety of industries. 

Becoming a Voice Actor: Why It's Worth the Effort

Becoming a voice actor takes work, time, and effort, but it's also a fun and rewarding pursuit. Voice actors have professional opportunities in a variety of industries from narrating documentaries, providing professional readings of commercials, marketing, and how-to videos, voicing animated characters, and providing voice-overs for video games to pursuing careers in stand up comedy, radio, broadcasting, or motivational speaking, the opportunities for voice actors are nearly limitless. 

When becoming a voice actor, you'll have the opportunity to use your creativity and your talent to captivate audiences. You can entertain the masses by either finding a voice acting job or using your talent to start your own podcast or Youtube channel. This ability will also translate to your everyday life, as you become a skilled storyteller. You'll also be the life of the party, when you entertain your friends with perfectly delivered impersonations. 

The Best Way to Learn Voice Acting and What You'll Study in Voice Acting Lessons

You can find plenty of free voice acting classes online, but the best way to develop your skills and learn voice acting is by studying with a private teacher. Every private lesson is unique! For example, voice acting lessons for kids are very different from voice acting classes for adults, regarding teaching methods and course content. Plus, your voice acting teacher will customize each class to keep you interested and motivated, while you learn new techniques at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Voice Acting

If you have a knack for creating fun voices, but have little or no previous voice acting experience, then beginner classes are for you. In these lessons, you'll be introduced to the basics of voice acting and begin to improve your raw talent with practice. Your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Learn how to take care of your voice
  • Extend your range with voiced impersonations
  • Exercise your voice for increased strength
  • Improve voice clarity
  • Think about tone, inflection, and diction

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Voice Acting

If you're familiar with the basics of voice acting, but want to improve your skills and expand your list of character voices, then intermediate lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to new techniques and challenge yourself to create increasingly complex character voices. In intermediate lessons, your voice acting teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Working with accents
  • Invent characters from scratch
  • Expand emotional expression in character
  • Exercise and speak from your diaphragm
  • Thinking about text, body, and voice to improve your sound

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Voice Acting

Subjects covered in advanced lessons depend greatly on the student's individual interests, personal goals, and professional ambitions, but your voice acting tutor might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Advanced character development
  • Delivering characters with your own personal style
  • Developing a professional audition tape
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance and recording preparation
