Voice Acting 101 - The Fundamentals of Speech

Summary

Mastering How to Speak

As with any profession or trade, it takes time for people to master their craft; voice acting included. A weekend seminar at a famous studio or a weeklong boot camp with a voice coach may be cool, but it probably won't increase your abilities to the point of landing loads of voice gigs. That's why we designed this course with the goal of making sure students see tangible improvements in not just acting, but speaking as a whole.

VA101 is designed to teach students about their vocal instrument and how to play it. Starting out from the basics and diving deep into understanding the different parts, how to control them, and how to train them to ensure its longevity. You will learn about your Voicebox, your articulators, posture, warmup and breathing techniques, consonants, plosives, sibilance, natural articulation, handling a lisp, mic techniques, and so much more!

Sample Preview - Infection on anger

I really appreciated the intensive focus that was spent on the practice and exercising of the voice and vocal muscles. As someone who suffered from vocal chord nodules, I know all too well what can happen when you don’t train it properly. Thank you so much for that!

Speech

There is a strong emphasis on speech in this class, with focus on breathing, pause, pronunciation, annunciation, and being comfortable in your own voice. Each week will cover a different topic, with classroom activities and discussion being the highlights of the class.

Stamina

Your voice is a muscle that you flex with your breath. Without proper stamina, voice work becomes more difficult and less fun. You begin to slur your words or feel dizzy. We'll teach you proper techniques with lip trill, rapid breaths and gasp in order grow your muscle.

Reading

Often overlooked, reading is one of the most important parts of life success. Being able to read aloud well helps you look more confident in front of others, more professional, and greatly improves your empathy when relating with people, which not only makes you a better actor, but a better human.

Networking

We will create opportunities for you to connect with amazing people.

Seminars
