The voice over industry is one of the most exciting and competitive fields within the radio and TV industry. An average day might involve reading straight commercials, performing characters, singing jingles or narrating a corporate video. The next week you might find your own voice on the end of an on hold system or on your favourite radio station.
Just having a great voice is like owning an expensive guitar – you need the skills to be able to play it properly. This course has been designed to give you the techniques to get the best out of your voice to get a start in the voice over industry.
The two-day intensive course is taught by Industry expert Gaby Brown (Triple J) and features numerous practical exercises in our state-of-the-art studios.
