Voiceover Intensive Class - Level 1

This is the start of a three-level course that is designed to work on the important fundamentals of voiceover work, including breath control, resonances, keyword analysis, client-talent etiquette, and how to get the voice within you OUT.  The practice copy used for the class will cover a variety of subjects and styles so that students have fun finding their voice and learn to sell!  Dorothy uses her knowledge and extensive experience in the voiceover world to help her students design and build a career in this field.  Students will perform unique scripts in a professional sound booth, recording group spots and one solo VO spot, receiving individual attention and direction after every performance.  Each student will receive (via email) one edited mp3 of the solo VO spot they do, which could be used as a sample audition piece for producers and casting directors.  Whether you’re a beginner or looking to polish your VO skills, this class can help you achieve your voiceover goals.


Prerequisites: None

Voiceover Intensive Class - Level 2

This intermediate-level class teaches more physical exercises for breathing, including body-work and face-work, freeing the tongue and the jaw as well as allowing the body to develop a repose state.  Having got the fundamentals in Level 1, students are taught further concepts and skills to focus their individual talent. Students get more intensive individual work on voiceover copy, recording 4 - 6 different types of spots, ranging from announcer, character, public service announcement, promo, industrial, or animation. Dorothy focuses on each student individually to teach the tools/skills that will allow them to succeed in the art of voiceover. As done in the Level 1 class, students will practice reading scripts in a professional sound booth and record 3-4 voiceover spots. Each student will get two edited spots as mp3 files, which could be used as a sample audition piece for producers and casting directors. 


Prerequisites: You must have taken the Level 1 Voiceover Intensive class with Dorothy & Brian to sign up for this course.

Voiceover Intensive Class - Level 3

This advanced-level class has more intensive work on performing voiceover copy and individual time within the class with different types of reads, including announcer, character, public service announcement, promo, industrial, or animation. Dorothy focuses on each student’s needs and provides personalized instruction during their time in the booth. As done in the Level 1 & 2 classes, students will practice reading scripts in a professional sound booth and record 4-6 voiceover spots. Each student will get two edited spots as a single mp3 file, which could be used as a sample audition piece for producers and casting directors. Students who complete all three voiceover class levels will have the option (for an additional fee) to have their voiceover reads from all 3 levels used to create a 60-90 second VO demo reel complete with music.  Dorothy and Brian will edit and put the best takes in the perfect succession with music that defines the spot and gives a true 'signature sound' to the talent. For details, see Dorothy or Brian.
