I really enjoyed this seminar, I attended more so because I do a lot of public speaking for work and I thought I may find some helpful tips.

IT was a great way to learn whether I had what it takes to do voiceover work. they even had you do a read in a professional mic with copy.

I thought it was very informative. John was honest about the business and the opportunities available. The live recording was great and the opportunity to get feedback and take his course was very valuable.

More Information


Getting Paid to Talk is a class designed as an upbeat and realistic assessment of the voice over industry and opportunities for new voice actors, including areas of growth, common pitfalls and mistakes.

Among the materials your instructor will discuss: the different types of voice-overs, what it’s like to work in the studio, voice types that are in demand, where to look for work opportunities close to you, effective demo development and examples, industry pros and cons and more.

Everyone in the class will also have an opportunity to record a short voice-over for playback at the end of class. Your instructor will also be more than happy to offer you some basic voice feedback at the completion of the class.

This class is designed for adults, although older children are welcome with parental accompaniment.
