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 first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.

"My 16 year old daughter has been taking online lessons with Kelsey for 2 months now and it is all she talks about!!! She adores and respects Kelsey as a person, a teacher and a career coach. Her confidence level is increasing and this in itself makes me thrilled to have made this inverstment in her. Therapy sessions are great, however, when you are able to find a coach and instructor that helps your child find their inner confidence and heart song through something they love, well, there is nothing better than that! Thank you, Kelsey! As we all know, it is not just knowing how to do it or even doing it - execution style is everything and you have sincerely won my daughter’s heart!"

"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 :)"

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.

  • Learn how to take care of your voice
  • Extend your range with voiced impersonations

  • Improve voice clarity
  • Think about tone, inflection, and diction

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

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

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.
