Voice Over I Class

w/Bob Michaels
Tuesdays Jan 13th-Feb 10th

This class is widely known as the VO-101 of our area. The class is wildly popular, having even brought in students from other states who seek to learn the art of VO from one of the most skilled and prolific performers in our area. Many talent agents also send their people to train with Bob. The reason is simple. Bob is one of the most detail oriented, technique-centric instructors that you could ever hope to meet. His brand of training grew from his intense dissatisfaction in his own educational experience. In most forms of VO training, the instructor gives the student a script, and then expects them to study it and perform it without any explanation of what they should be trying to achieve or how to achieve it. Bob’s training is all about that missing information.

In VO-1, you will spend five weeks learning the most important facets of the art and business of voice-over, such as VO Style, Voice Culture, Relationships of Sound and Meaning, Script Analysis, Script Forms, Practice/Improvement Techniques, Studio Survival, Home Studio Info, Demos, Agents, Auditions, Marketing, and much, much more. There is copy reading in four of the five sessions, and students must download and review their sound recordings as a homework assignment each week


Class fee $300

“Bob is a Great teacher!” “Bob really knows his stuff!” “I loved this class!”
