In the words of Robin Williams from Mrs Doubtfire "I... do... voices" and have plenty of them! I've been integrating a number of them into my standup and have finally starting producing original tracks for my VU playlist. Some of the voices loaded are: Christopher Walken, Marvin the Martian, Mickey Mouse, Yoda and more! Any council or advice would be most helpful and appreciated!

I coach on Skype and webcam. Able to take private consults again about Aug 19. Right now teaching at university in New Orleans. Keep in touch. It's my strongpoint, corp narration and I have major clients.

Hi, I am looking for some help on improving my VO skills for corporate narrations and other skills.
Please take a listen to my samples, and let me know if you are able to help me, through Skype, as well as how you charge, thank you!

Deconstructing Barney Fife


Here's a brief video on how to break a character voice down to its 6 elements - a skill that helps to create rapid characters and gain versatility and control. How much fun can teaching and learning get?

What is a good voice coach for you? A person who knows you and your abilities and takes the time to sort out your strengths and needs. Don't settle for mass cookie cutter classes or schools that run students thru like mice. No contact, no personal care? Run, don't walk away. Who do they teach? The world? Be careful.

Anyone know of a good voice coach in the Washington DC area?  Specifically, I am looking to reduce my regional accent, which seems to be very apparent in my voice delivery. Thanks folks!

Two enrolless get free demo evals!  Two enrollees in our Animation Webinar May 4 Bob Bergen voice of Porky Pig and me, Bettye Zoller, get free demo evals afterwards. And if you can't be online with us night of May 4 for the webinar, no prob, cause VOICEOVERXTRA sends enrollees complete podast of it afterwards. Join us. Good stuff. Not the same old same old and no hype. Where are the animation jobs outside of LA? How do you connect with those who hire? Much more. Don't miss this.

Greetings everyone! I have been asked repeatedly over the years if I could coach newbies, even pro's who felt stuck at their current level. I am offering myself as a coach now, and also will be co-teaching weekend seminars in my home state of Texas in the fall!!! Very excited about that!!!! Call me anytime, 24/7 at (281)513-6580 and we can discuss your needs.

I am very affordable, thorough, and concise. My niche for fifteen years has been commercial, character, and recently animation for Nickelodeon. Please pick my brain!!!

Cheers Everyone and Let's All Continue To Pay It Forward!!!!!

Hey gang: Send me your thoughts: I'm writing an article on "What Skills Does a Radio Station On-Air Staffer Need." This was prompted by a student who wrote me on a site that I'm a coach on. I've received some fine comments Semd more to me here.

Every time you audition for something, you've performed. You've been heard. Someone now knows of you when possibly, before, they did not know of your existence, let alone your sound, your skills. While you may not get the job, which means nothing because people choose the person whom they believe fits the job best and it may or may not be you, that person who auditioned you may come back to you later or save your audition as a "voice to consider in future." That regularly happens to me. You may not know the person saved your audition, but they do this sometimes. And with audio books, remember that although you sent your audio book demo (make sure it's the correct kind that will get you hired) to a publisher or an author to consider you to narrate for them and nothing happened, publishers have to wait for the "right book" the "right type" to come to them. Then, they consider various demos they keep on-hand. So again, something may happen on down the line. It's the way you get "heard" and "known" and rejection is just routine. Think of it this way. Audition and FORGET IT. It's history. Go on to the next one.

My audio book seminar is Sunday April 3 in Dallas. Then, James Alburger and Penny Abshire interview me as a podcast evening of April 4. Thanks for the invite! You can ask questions too. It's free.

OK, I simply have to say: WOW.  I am new to VU and just stumbled onto this page and I am frankly flabbergasted by the generosity of the established voice talents and coaches on this board.  There is such a wealth of information on this craft available here and elsewhere on the web, it's truly encouraging.  So thanks to all of you guys and gals who are sharing your experience and wisdom -- it makes the road seem just a little *less scary for a newbie like me.  I hope to have many opportunities to learn from y'all in 2011 and beyond, and perhaps someday I'll be able to return the favor and share my experiences! :)  - Richard

The voice over field now consists of "layers." Those who think it's a get rich quick scheme and have very few skills (they talk and that's it and need training and business knowledge) those who are trained but still new (they have the future if they persist in improving and knowing the business and how to get hired) those who do the low-pay jobs or are only on one or two websites trying to get jobs (and know nothing about the high-dollar advertising agency national campaign work who don't have agents or only one in their hometown) and those who know what's happening. They are the ones who rise to the top. It took me 34 years to know what I know and voice overs always have given me and my family a superb living and lovely lifestyle like so many others whose pictures I see here above me and on this site. Which group do you aspire to? It is a new year of new beginnings. Climb climb climb up and make your business grow. If you don't know the ropes, study with people who teach the business, how to make money. Good voice? That's the least element in success!
