Start Your Voice Over Career!
New Voice Over Artist, Ray Greenley talks about is incredible start…It sounded too good to be true when Rob called me in for a voice over job before I had even finished my studies at Voice Box! Even though I was a complete beginner at the start of the Total Experience class, the instructors seemed to recognize my abilities right away and worked hard to help me nurture and grow them. Now what once was only a distant dream feels like a reality! I don’t know where else I could have received training that would have gotten me this far in such a short amount of time! – Ray Greenley
UPDATE: May 2018 – Ray has now recorded over 20 audiobooks for various authors and has received glowing reviews. He has also voiced several e-learning projects, and teaches classes on audio engineering. Go Ray!
Or Supercharge Your Current Career!
Veteran Voice Over Artist, Jim McCabe talks about his newfound success after taking the class…I have to thank you for helping me get back on the right track. Granted I wasn’t a novice going into the class, but never in my career have I booked work so consistently than I have after working with you guys. I’ve had multiple jobs each week for months now; corporate promos, local TV and radio spots, several regional TV campaigns, videogames and character work, audio books, a couple national TV spots, and I just landed the announcer for the ESPN show Draft Academy! It’s been incredible and it’s in no small part due to the Voice Box team. Thanks, Jim McCabe

But if you’ve seen enough so far and just want to make sure you lock in your seat then –
Here’s a break down of the just some of the what we’ll cover over the 6 weeks
Week 1: Hit the Ground Running – Voice Box owner and dynamic instructor, Rob Holt guides you through a quick but important introduction to the voice over studio, including proper etiquette and techniques in the studio, on and off the mic. Then we jump right in to it! You will be performing various voice over scripts, utilizing the techniques learned the previous week and realizing how much fun it really is to work in this environment. WARNING: Be prepared to laugh!
Teacher: VO Casting Director/Producer/Engineer/Voice Box Owner – Rob Holt
Week 2: Acting for VO artists – We build a solid foundation for the weeks ahead! Getting you loose, relaxed and in the moment is crucial to delivering your best vocal performance. You’ll receive an overview of how VO work differs from on-camera acting. Work includes relaxation skills to help you free the natural voice in addition to working with scripts and learning the acting skills that bring the voice to life. Teacher: Veteran Actor, Voice Actor, and Voice/Improv/Acting Instructor – Sharon Geller
Weeks 3: Voiceover work for Commercials from the VO Artist’s Perspective – This class will look specifically at auditioning for and working within the exciting realm of the commercial voice over market. You’ll learn the invaluable techniques of voice preparation, text analysis and cold readings. We’ll focus on determining the type of read, and the major components present in each piece of commercial copy. You will have the opportunity of applying these techniques to professional voice over scripts.
Teacher: Veteran VO & On-Camera Actor/Educator – Neill Hartley
Week 4: Voiceover work for Narration from the VO Artist’s Perspective – We will dive into this vast area of the voice over industry. You will learn about the different types of narration work as well as the specific techniques required to voice them, and gain insights on how narration styles differ from commercial styles. We will practice these skills on mic.
Teacher: Neill Hartley
Week 5: Public Service Announcements – PSA’s are a unique part of the VO world. You will learn and apply the techniques needed to keep the PSA honest, clear and sincere. The goal is to raise public awareness, make a call to action or shock the audience.
Teacher: Veteran Actor, Voice Actor, and Voice/Improv/Acting Instructor – Sharon Geller
Week 6: Supersize Your Skills! – The skills you’ve learned with be put to the test in a challenging up-tempo exercise that is much closer to being on the job than in class. Then you will be given two pieces of copy that will push your acting range to its limits! Expect explosive growth as an actor and also big fun! Teacher: VO Casting Director/Producer/Engineer/Voice Box Owner – Rob Holt
This is just an outline of the class.
There is simply no way to explain how much you’ll learn.
Our lives are centered around the voice over business all day, every day. Many times we will use the experiences we’ve had that week or even that day to give you the best possible set of skills and how they apply to the industry right now!
And don’t forget the special bonuses!
Bonus 1: Two Home Audition Training Sessions. Lately I’ve done a bunch of casting jobs where I need the talent to record the audition themselves at home. It’s the future of voice casting so I want to get you up to speed on this. I will send you 2 home auditions over the course of the 8 weeks where you will record yourself and send the recording back to me for evaluation. Don’t worry, you’ll discover that it’s actually a lot easier than it sounds once I break it down for you and there’s a 90% chance your already own the recording equipment. These additional training sessions are really like getting 2 additional classes!
Bonus 2: A 30-minute one-on-one session with me after the last class. After our incredible, life changing 6-weeks the last thing I want to leave you with is a feeling of “now what?” I always have made myself available to students after the class if they had any questions, etc. but this is the first time I’m offering anything like this. I want this to be 30 minutes of “you” time. We will figure out what the best plan of action is for you specifically. Casting professionals are notoriously busy and I’m no exception. I usually charge $50 for a 30 minute one-on-one, but I want to give this to you as a thank you for taking the class. I know it will be useful to both of us!
So if you are feeling good about all this but would still like to talk to me…
Or if you’re just ready to grab your seat…
