Your vocal quality is one of the first things people will notice about you. It really sets the tone for how people see you. It’s your voice that gets your message heard!
You need to know how to use your voice. Think of your voice as an instrument. Your voice is something you want to learn how to use to its fullest to get the best possible sound. In doing that you need to know how to care for your voice. In the same way a musician cares for their hands or a dancer cares for their body, you must learn to use your instrument properly. read more

Welcome to the lab. I’m Jodina professional voice over artist, on camera talent and media coach. Classes for voice over are forming now. I mentioned to a friend of mine that I was going to be teaching a voice over class. She laughed and said “teaching voice over.. funny. You just need to be able to read to do voice over”. This is an educated woman , who runs her own company . I was dumbfounded that someone who has know me for years and very familiar with my work would think voice over was simply reading a script. Depending on the project voice over can mean very different things. But one thing remains the same, Voice over takes more than just the ability to read with a good voice.
Voice over is a form of acting, whether you are voicing a commercial, an industrial or even a message on hold you are using many of the same skills it takes to be a great actor. You need to know how to use your instrument – that being your voice. You need to know how to interpret copy and make interesting choices. read more
