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've been teaching singing, drama and dance for 26 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of music and theater, sing and act professionally and and become music and theater teachers! Within the first few lessons, you'll start singing/speaking/moving with more confidence and as time goes by, you'll be performing like a pro! I specialize in Broadway, classical, pop and jazz, can play your songs for you and have the following tools available for your lessons: YouTube, piano and an extensive music book library.

"Our son (12 yrs old) has been receiving weekly lessons from Daniel since June. Daniel is a phenomenal and knowledgeable magician, is enthusiastic, works well with children, and was flexible when we rescheduled a lesson due to summer vacation plans. Our son leaves every class with a new skill or trick and we like that Daniel asks our son to practice or review skills/tricks/videos before his next class. Our son has improved his magic skills as well as widened his magic trick repertoire."

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
