SEATTLE VOICEOVER CLASSES

Looking for Beginning, Intermediate and more advanced Voiceover Classes in Seattle? We have several starting soon. They’re taught by veteran voice actor, stage actor, and director Rick May.  (See Rick May’s IMDB page.) 

You can take the classes individually, or if you take all four, you will earn a VOICEOVER FUNDAMENTALS CERTIFICATE.

VOICEOVER CLASSES – With short descriptions

VOICEOVER 101

In RICK MAY’S VOICEOVER 101 class, you’ll learn:

  1. the ABCs of voice acting, step by step,
  2. how to train your voice with articulation exercises before  moving on to character work.
  3. how to sound like an announcer when you want to
  4. how NOT to sound like an announcer when you don’t want to (but still have a relaxed professional voice)
  5. how to present as either a “regular person” or a commercial announcer
  6. how to project your enthusiasm
  7. how to communicate emotions
  8. how to do narration for documentaries
  9. how to do voices for animated cartoons
  10. How to do voices for games, one of the hottest industries for actors
  11. how to find your own natural voice
  12. and finally, how to create a range of fun and interesting characters.

VOICEOVER 102

Voiceover 102: Intermediate Level is for the students who have completed Rick May’s Voiceover 101 class and would like to keep learning and practicing.  It is a continuance of in-depth instruction of advanced voice work. In addition to scenes and advanced commercial work, the class will also do full length shows with roles assigned and performed by students, no memorization, just the chance to work as professional radio actors. We will continue to explore character development, cartoon voices, video games, announcing techniques and vocal development. Class material extensively covers all the elements of voice work and audition preparation. 


VOICEOVER 103

Voiceover 103:  This special new class is for students who have successfully completed Voiceover 101 and 102, who wish to continue advanced voice work study.  The class will encompass detailed and extensive exercises in monologues and scene work, and will use texts from movie scripts, TV shows and radio productions. 

In addition to reviewing all the aspects of voice work, the class will also be ideal for those who took Accents and Dialects who want to continue to sharpen their dialect skills.  There will also be additional input on establishing professional careers.
