Explore the wide range of creative options in your voice!

This online workshop is a “MUST” if you would love to learn the skills needed to be able to reproduce your “characters” accurately again and again.

Whether you want to work in entertaining extremes or to explore more subtle changes in age and tone, this workshop will provide you with all you need to do so.

Perhaps you want to know how to analyse in detail and then reproduce the voice of a famous person. Perhaps you want to invent and create voices from scratch for animation, computer games or your Character Demo reel. Perhaps you want to learn more about your voice and tap into the hidden potentials inside – whatever you want, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Learn to impersonate any voice
  • Explore and develop those voices “inside” your head
  • What you need to know to invent new voices from scratch
  • How to develop voices for computer games
  • Step By Step guide to manipulating your voice in a safe way
  • How to approach scripts: cartoon to classical literature
  • Being consistent …. again and again & again…
  • Staying fit and ready for work
  • Workshop held via Zoom – 2 x 2.5 hour sessions with a 30 min break
  • You’ll need a stable internet connection
  • A computer, phone or tablet, ideally with a webcam
  • If you currently make Skype or Facetime calls, you should be fine
  • Some headphones would make the experience better
  • We will send you a link that you click and join the remote session, and a selection of scripts that we will use on your session. All very easy.
  • The system requirements for Zoom for Mac, PC and Tablets can be found here

I did my drama voice reel with Mike. Mike had obviously thought about each piece before I’d arrived and he was already prepared with some suggestions for musical settings and sound effects, which I had not been expecting. Mike has a strong musical instinct for what is going to work and a massive library at his fingertips. I appreciated how he listened and how he engaged with what I was trying to achieve. It felt like a collaboration and he was both patient and a perfectionist. While I am really looking forward to the final edit, I was delighted with the experience, and I look forward to returning for my next project.
