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).

My daughter raves about her lessons with Rebecca. She gets in the car and is always so excited to tell me what she did or learned, and when she practices I can see things click and improve. It’s so refreshing to see her passion and satisfaction in the learning process. Clearly she has a gift for teaching and inspiring teenagers, because I never see Anna work this hard. Thank you for all you do!

David is so knowledgeable and has great insight into his students. He immediately put my son at ease but also challenged him to try harder.
Raina D.
David is very knowledgeable and gave my daughter such great advice and direction to work with. He broke down each line of her scene and the motivation behind it and took the extra time with her to make sure she understood everything and was delivering it naturally and effectively. He even spent extra time with her and didn’t finish the lesson until she fully got everything down. Very professional, fun, friendly and genuine. We’re so grateful we found him and she and I both look forward to her next lesson with him! We very highly recommend him!!

Fawn works at the perfect pace, not to slow and not too fast. She keeps you motivated and helps you through challenges and hurdles. Brilliant teacher.
ST, on broadway
I remember being blown away after my very first lesson with Fawn. I learned more in that one lesson than I ever did in 6 months with my other vocal teacher here in NY. ONE LESSON! I thought it would slow down from there, but it hasn't! Every lesson I leave a bit better, a bit stronger, more knowledgable and it is exciting now to be a vocalist! I realize before all those years with other teachers I was a novelist. NOW I AM A BONAFIDE VOCALIST! I was also skeptical of online vs in person lessons, but Fawn doesn't skip a beat! I can't wait to continue growing on this journey with Fawn.

Private Voice Acting Teacher

Voice Acting is a very specialized part of the industry, because your voice is all you have to rely on, and every little sound, breath and thought counts! In these sessions we’ll go over how voice acting differs from on-camera acting, creating and sustaining characters and voices for animation or video games, the nuances of narration and audio books and general voice and microphone techniques. I’ll also give you tips on how to improve your vocal control and take care of your voice for optimal performance.

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Daniel
I’m so happy to have discovered Hunter. I was struggling so much when I first reached out to her, but very hesitant about talking to someone about my problems because I am so private and felt a little embarrassed that I couldn’t figure this out by myself, but she made it so easy. Hunter is really positive and intuitive and knows just the right questions to ask but without asking too much. She helped me get to the core of the issue and got to what I needed without ever feeling uncomfortable. Now, we’ve talked so much, it’s almost like talking to a close friend, but with no judgement and actually getting useful answers.

I started out just doing a few sessions because I was so nervous and wasn’t sure if this was going to work, but seriously, I’d say book 10 - you won’t regret it! We kept finding new levels and I almost can’t believe how much better I feel and how much my life has changed. I definitely recommend Hunter. She will help you change your life!
DeShawn
Hunter is such a fun, knowledgeable and supportive, coach! I read some other reviews before hiring her, saying that she really cares about you getting the part, and it’s so true! She has lots of valuable insights for uncovering your character and great technical advice for shooting. I book all of my self-tapes with her - we coach first and then she reads with me and is my scene partner while we record. I have booked 2 guest stars in the last 3 months since I started working with her. Highly recommend!
Mohan
Very good and detail oriented teacher. She can pick up the slightest little mistakes in the way you pronounce things and the way you speak and tell you how to correct them on the spot. Now I know how to move my mouth differently to make different sounds for the same word. Have been doing session twice a week for 4 months and my accent is completely gone! I thought it was going to take years. So happy and glad I met Hunter! Easy to work with and very encouraging.

A long-time actor, I have had the pleasure of working with Bren on a variety of projects. Not only is she both an enthusiastic leader and team player, watching her with students, Bren has proven to be a knowledgeble and capable teacher, encouraging students, and bringing out more vocally than most expected of themselves.

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!

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. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, it’s animation.
