Part-Time Voice

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Animation, narration, commercials. There is a whole world of voice-over acting out there. We help you develop the techniques required to tell a story through the microphone.

Our classes will equip actors with the necessary skills they’ll need to succeed in the voice-over industry. As one of the busiest entertainment sectors here in Vancouver, voice-over skills are an essential tool for any well-rounded actor. Don’t miss out on the opportunities present in this booming industry by not developing your skills in front of the mic.

If you want to diversify your creative tool belt and add one more skill set for your agent to promote, this weekly class will ensure that you’re ready for your next voice-over audition or gig. Working with some of Vancouver’s top voice actors, students will work on their vocal skills and technique in fully-equiped studios that simulate the real auditioning and recording process.
