I’m in Seattle this weekend, for a two day voiceover workshop with Marice Tobias that includes 12 of my peers in the voiceover business. Then I’ll have a private session with her on Monday morning before I head home.
If the subject of voiceover work interests you, but you haven’t really started, there are many different people with whom you can study. You can read books (there are a bunch of them linked on my Recommended Books page), you can take seminars, you can take group classes, you can do private coaching in person or on the phone. There are hundreds of choices. Maybe thousands.
And some of the people doing the “getting started” training, also do seminars and workshops or private coaching for working pros, too. But there’s something unique about working with a coach who is focused on helping people stay in the voiceover business rather than get started. That’s Marice. To study with her you need to come with a professional recommendation. And your career has to all ready be in motion.
I strongly believe that real professionals know they need to keep studying and growing.
