Private Voice Acting Teacher

I pioneered a private Arts Academy drama school for 4 years, and am now teaching acting and directing at a middle and high school. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Sound waves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

Greetings! I am super excited to be building a private and small group lesson platform at our home studio and to meet your personal acting and performing needs! I recently stepped down from 2 years of full-time drama and visual art at Lumos Arts Academy- a private school I played a role in pione

Rebecca was very nice, inviting and patient with my almost 13 year old daughter. This is our first experience with anyone regarding acting and we were so happy with Rebecca.
Ainsley A.
Rebecca is amazing. I was skeptical that we could do improv work online but she not only made it happen, she made it succeed! She shows up prepared and offers great structure. Her insight and advice are thoughtful and spot on which has helped me improve faster than I would with another instructor. On top of that the lessons are extremely fun! Seriously would recommend her for anything.

"I tried several other voice acting teachers on this site before I came across David. And I can say with absolute confidence that he is the best teacher on here. David is kind, helpful, and an incredibly down to earth guy. Most teachers throw you in expecting you to understand their methods like I'm some kind of savant. David however, gives you material but also tells you why he gave you the material. He breaks down the process. Also, certain teachers will coddle you and give you fake praise so you continue to buy their program. And i'm not saying David doesn't give praise. But he gives meaningful praise. He is honest about when I lack in a certain aspect and tells me how to improve, while also giving my positive feedback on the things I am doing well. If you are on the fence about this teacher stop. He is worth every penny. If I got to do it over again I would have chosen him first in a heart beat for twice the money. He has rekindled my passion for voice acting and is actually giving my real hope that I can achieve my goals of becoming a real voice acting soon. I can not stress enough how wonderful he is as a teacher and that anyone and everyone who has a drive to learn acting should take his classes. I am continuing classes with him, but even when I'm finished (eventually) I will never forget what he taught me. Thanks David :)"

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 voice 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

Find a Voice Acting Teacher Near You

If you're ready to learn how to use your voice to develop fun and exciting new characters, then a private teacher can help you along the way. Luckily, finding a private voice acting tutor on TakeLessons is easy! A quick search will direct you to a long list of experience, qualified teachers who offer lessons online and in-person. Before choosing the teacher who's right for you, we recommend checking out several profiles and reading reviews left by other voice acting students. 

The cost of voice acting classes varies, but most teachers base rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, you'll have no trouble finding someone who fits your budget and your schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays of quickly, as you pick up new techniques fast and improve your skills after the very first lesson!

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.
