Also known as voice-over. Any time you hear the voice, but do not see the face connected to it. The unseen announcer, animations, supplying the voice for another actor.

So much of communication on stage, or in TV or film is done with body language, facial expressions, movements, actions, and voice to tell the story. A voice-over artist has to do it all with just her voice.

I have had the best time learning how to sing with Susan! She is so patient and kind, and has such a great way of helping me actually visualize how I can make corrections in my singing. It has been such a pleasure and is a real highlight of my week. And--bonus--I have really progressed!

I understand that sometimes people have a hard time speaking in front of others, but really want to improve. Whether it be, because you aren't speaking clearly enough, aren't projecting enough or need to get over your jitters, let's see what we can do. We can work on monologues or look at what event you're preparing for. Even if it is a speech for school or for an event at work. Both Acting and Singing have helped me with these issues. Working in front of someone that knows what to listen for and can help you to tweak what you've been doing might be the best solution.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach, I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me, singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something en

Learning about blend, confidence in harmony singing, working on adding harmonies, this lab also open to small groups of singers/choirs in my studio, or larger groups also virtually. Those lessons/seminars are structured on a group rate based on how many weeks, time allotment and size of group. I have taken choirs to tour and have performed in Europe. This type of study also good for confidence building, especially for a choir singer who may venture into singing some solos!

After the first lesson I can truthfully say that I'm looking forward to working with Bill. He's very approachable and down-to-earth, and he gives great feedback from the very start. It's easy to tell he's an excellent teacher!
Amber
I highly recommend Bill. I was looking for a voice coach to help me strengthen my voice for work presentations and found Bill on take lessons. I was happy to learn the Bill also frequently presents. Not only has he helped improve my speaking voice, he's also helped me improve my presentation style and calm the pre-jitters. Bill is prepared, on time, and a very professional. He's been so helpful, that I just recently signed up for even more lessons! Don't hesitate. If you want to get better, Bill's will help make it happen.
R
Like Adrian said, the basic package is pretty good and have solid information on how to be more efficient at using the vocal instrument better.

But Bill has a hard time being specific, if I didn't ask him specific question that he just resort into generic statement,

From time to time, he even has this passive aggressive attitude. I signed up to improve my speech and accent because I know I need to work on it. I don't know why he sometimes need to emphasis on that almost to the point of gaslighting but hey maybe he just had a couple of bad days.

There are four type of knowledge:
the knowledge that you know you know,
the knowledge that you know that you don't know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you don't know.
If I know what I don't know then I wouldn't need to sign up for a class, I would just work on it.
People sign up for classes to move the fourth and third category into the first and second, so here is the lesson every instructor in every subjects should probably know.

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out

When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen.

The key component of voice acting, even more than secrecy and seclusion, is versatility.
