If you’re often accused of having multiple personalities, this is the online voice acting course you’ve been waiting for . . .

In this intensive three-week session, you’ll work with me to develop and flesh out vocal characterizations for animation, commercials, video games, and more.

You’ll learn all of my best tips, tricks, techniques & tactics for creating voices that stand out of the pack . . . and book you the job!

I’ll show you how to mine & prepare a script — how to make outstanding choices that give your characters substance and bring them to life.

This is not a course in how to “do” funny voices! It’s a power-packed acting class, in which you’ll kick your game up to new level, and have more fun doing voiceover than you ever thought possible.

You do not need any special equipment to participate in this course. You can connect via your computer (PC or Mac with a headset/earbuds & microphone), or your smartphone (iPhone or Android).

Class size is limited to just six people — this ensures that everyone will have many opportunities to perform & get personal feedback.

We’ll meet for three 90-minute sessions. Everything is online: I’ll send you materials to look at ahead of time, and afterward I’ll email you a link to download the full audio recording of that week’s session.

Space in the class is extremely limited. To reserve your spot via PayPal, visit this link:
