- Training Program Outline
1- Investigate Voice Over
Your program begins with this exciting 3-hour performance based class. Instructors will give you a brief overview of the voice over industry. Then, you will have an opportunity to read for your instructor in a live directed session. This will give the instructor the opportunity to get to know you and your voice better, and make recommendations on what kind of training and genres of voiceover may best suit your voice.
2- Education Consultation
Careful planning now will result in a more marketable voice over demo down the road. After the Investigate Voice Over class, your Education Advisor will review your instructor’s performance assessment with you and together you will create a customized training program based on what genres we feel you would be most marketable in.
3- Technique 101 Webinar
The most fundamental, core aspect of your career as a voiceover talent is having a full understanding of vocal performance techniques. This class will introduce you to the most important components for creating a natural, smooth, believable, marketable delivery. You will learn the basics of how proper vocal techniques can transform lackluster reads into breakthrough performances.
4- Private Coaching
Private one-on-one coaching is the best way to develop your skills as a voice artist, and Edge Studio has the best coaches in the industry! We will match you with a coach who best fits your unique sound, career goals, and schedule. Your instructor will develop an individualized plan that helps you focus on skills to nurture your personal sound, working towards recording a demo.
5- Demo Reel Preparation and Recording
Once you have completed your Private Coaching, you will work with your instructor to begin production of your voice over demo. This involves:
Demo Preparation session: You’ll learn all about the demo record process, and give you one final opportunity to work on your scripts with your coach.
Demo Record Session: You enter the booth and record the demo you have been working on with your coach!
After recording, our top-tier engineering team will mix, edit, add music and sound effects, process, and sequence your demo into an industry-standard presentation. David Goldberg, our CEO, personally works on each and every demo we produce to ensure they are the absolute best representation of your voice.
6- The “What Now?” Class
Once your demo is recorded, we will help jump-start your career by giving you top-level advice on organizing, implementing, and putting together the initial pieces of your voice over business.
Once you finish your program, round out your training with our continuing education opportunities. You can choose to work towards additional demos, get private coaching sessions to hone your craft, or enroll in our webinars that can show you how to build a home studio or market yourself as a voice actor.
