Component One | One-on-One Evaluation & Voice Over Basics
Your initial one-on-one session is designed to better acquaint you with the voice over field while allowing our team to learn more about your voice and your specific areas of interest.
Our 15-point computer-assisted voice and speech evaluation examines speech traits including hyper and hyponasality, functional breath support, phonetic placement, and other areas of the voice that are critical in effective communication. Upon completion, your instructor will explain and answer questions about your results. You’ll also receive a 10- to 15-page detailed report outlining evaluation results, areas of strength, and opportunities for improvement.
Evaluation and Basics are an essential beginning to providing an outstanding, ethical, and individualized educational experience.
Voice Coaches reserves the right to discontinue training with individuals who do not meet basic speech-language requirements as determined in our evaluation process.
Affected students are granted a full refund.
Component Two | Individualized Training
When it comes to voice over, a “good voice” and a demo isn’t everything. Building long-term success and repeat work relationships requires the skill and industry knowledge to provide your service as a true professional.
Your next two one-on-one classes are designed to provide current industry know-how, techniques, and skill development. These sessions will also be an opportunity for you to work with your coach in determining the type of material that interests you and best fits your voice. We believe every voice is different and we’ll work hard to help you showcase your greatest strengths!
And, because we recognize that voice over is a skill, we’ll encourage you to take time between your classes to practice, develop skill, and enjoy the process.
Our one-on-one approach means your schedule is based on what’s convenient to you, including evenings and weekends!
Component Three | Virtual Classroom
In addition to your one-on-one sessions, you’ll complete four classes through our web-based Virtual Classroom. These classes include Professionalism & Etiquette, Preparing For The Job, Exploring Motivational Assignment, and Effective Self Marketing. Each class contains video and audio segments along with downloadable workbooks and exercises.
Our unique personalized online system also allows you to access our entire copy library and save or print favorites for future review, access and change content on your included personal web site, communicate with your coach, and much more.
And for those who are not computer savvy, all web-based educational content is available in hard copy and DVD.
Component Four | Studio Immersion
You’ve learned about your voice, developed skill, and collaborated with your coach on copy that interests you and ideally fits your voice. Now, it’s on to the studio!
Scheduled at our world-class main studios, or at a Voice Coaches Certified Studio convenient to you, Studio Immersion is a two-hour in-studio recording and educational session.
With you at the microphone, your coach will take you step-by-step through a variety of scripts pre-chosen in your previous sessions. We’ll listen to your ideas and at the same time provide clear input and direction. The goal: provide real-world studio experience and insight while developing a broad range of professionally recorded material that showcases your specific strengths.
This session is an invaluable asset in building confidence and professional-level experience while providing a comfortable client-oriented experience.
Component Five | Professional Demo Development
As a voice over artist, your demo is considered your audio resume.
Network-quality demo production is currently an included component of your Premier Program. Our producers will review the material recorded during your Studio Immersion Session and select the best material. That material will be edited, combined with background music and other sound elements, and digitally mastered to CD.
And because as much as 90% of available work to voice over artists is non-commercial, we’ll provide you with a completely separate narrative demo showcasing your strengths in areas including audio books, training & educational content, documentaries, and other areas of narrative voice over.
Both commercial and narrative demos are included with the Premier Program.
Additionally, all scripts used by Voice Coaches are legally licensed and do not mention national brands, products or services.
Component Six | Included Products
In addition to long-term support from our full-time administrative, coaching, and production team, the following products and services are also included components of the Premier Program.
Master CD copy of your commercial & narrative demos
This open license CD is yours; make unlimited duplicates anytime, as needed. All commercial & narrative scripts are legally licensed.
Digital MP3 Demo Master for easy web sharing
Your MP3 demos provide a reduced file size while retaining tremendous audio quality. They are great for sharing via email or the web.
Personal Web Site
Instead of a page on a web site with dozens of other voice over artists, you’ll receive a dedicated web page with your contact information and demos! In addition, our personal web system lets you make changes to your website at any time. 1 year of hosting is also included.
Reputation & Support | A Letter From Voice Coaches
Value, confidence, individualized support, and realistic perspective.
As a Voice Coaches client, your specific goals and interests become our focus. With clear professional policies and long-term affiliations with the Better Business Bureau and numerous other industry organizations, we are committed to client satisfaction and the voice acting community. Voice Coaches’ one-on-one approach to education offers individualized attention, tremendous program & schedule flexibility, and an overall experience that is adapted to meet specific goals.
Rather than a “learn to break in/get rich quick” approach, we present the voice acting field in a manner that’s realistic, tangible, and fun. Instead of group education, our entire process is one-on-one. The end result is individuals who are both excited about the field and well prepared for success.
In addition to education and demo development, our world-class studios host major clients including Discovery Network, HGTV, McGraw Hill Publishing, GE, MTI, and countless others.
But perhaps most importantly, Voice Coaches is a dedicated, full-time professional organization and we are committed to the clients who trust us with their training. I sincerely look forward to putting our experience, reputation, educational resources, and genuine love of our field to work for you!
