A voice-over is defined as words that are spoken by an actor, or actors, who are unseen by the viewer or listener. Here are a few examples of where you might hear voice-over: radio commercials, audiobooks, animated TV/movies, video games, e-learning programs, apps, websites, podcasts, GPS, and many more.
If you’re considering getting into the voice-over industry, a good first step is to learn how the industry works, what skills you need to develop, what job opportunities exist, how to get the work, what equipment you might need, and how to create a top-notch demo so you can market yourself in the most professional manner possible.

Sure! Narration and commercial demos are the most standard for the industry. Check out some work from some of our previous students!
No! In fact, we don’t recommend you try to get an agent until you’ve already proven that you’re able to consistently book voice-over work on your own. At that point, you’ll become a strong candidate for agency representation. You may even be approached personally as your client list expands, and your reputation solidifies as a pro voice talent.
While it’s true that prior experience can be helpful, it is by no means a prerequisite to pursuing voice-over. When you work with us, we’ll teach you voice acting from the ground up!
We’ll choose a coach for you to work with based on both a scheduling match and a personality/style fit. We have a wide array of talented voice-over coaches working with us. Our coaches are working pros in the industry, with specialties in many different areas. Visit our staff page to meet the team!
While some voice-over work is still recorded in professional recording studios, the majority of today’s voice-over work is done from the comfort of your own home, utilizing your computer and a home recording studio. Technology has really come a long way in the industry, and it’s now possible to record broadcast-quality work from home, without breaking the bank!
Absolutely! The equipment required is very affordable and easy to access, and treating your room to ensure that it will sound professional can be as simple as hanging drapes over the windows and/or walls. When you work with us, we’ll help you dial-in your studio to ensure it meets industry standards.
In order to become a working voice-over artist, it’s important to first get the proper training and then get your demos together so that clients will want to hire you. From there, you’ll want to ensure that you’re set up to record professional voice-over work from home, and that you know how to market yourself in order to book the work. Our program will guide you every step of the way to help set you up for success!
