New to voice over? Learn how to get started in this FAB 1 Day workshop

Find out how to get started in voice over & what is needed to succeed without wasting your time & money in a professional working commercial voiceover studio.

The last 30 years discovering, training & supporting new emerging voices has taught us that no classroom-based workshop, book or online voice over course can give you what you really need to be able to find out if you have the vocal skills needed to get going. Voice over is a “doing thing” and the only way to know if you have what it takes to succeed is to get behind the mic and take direction from established working voiceover producers that will give you professional and honest feedback about how you might, or in some cases might not get started in today’s voiceover arena. Interested? Then our Intro to Voice Over Workshop is definitely for you.

This fun and interactive workshop is perfect for beginners of all ages and our honest and professional feedback will help you make that all-important decision about moving forward. Check out our clients’ testimonials and see what people have said. No previous voice over or acting experience is needed to attend this studio based workshop and you will learn everything you need to know about how to get started.

This workshop will give you an industry overview, help you understand your existing vocal skills and give you the knowledge needed to get a voice plan together with a view to recording your demo. It is designed to enable you to find your “signature” voice. It focuses mainly on commercial and narrative genres although we’ll discuss all other areas you might want to explore such as games, animation, character, audiobook and radio drama.

A really big thank you to JP for such a fun, funny, relaxed, informative, professional detailed introduction to the voiceover industry. Realistic, sensitive and constructive feedback was perfectly balanced and I came away feeling much more confident about my voice behind the mic. Now I am left craving more voiceover workshop medication…I got the bug!! Most highly recommended.

My time with The Showreel has been incredible! I took part in the Introduction to Voice Over and 3 day Voice Acting sessions and I've grown an incredible amount as a person. I've learned so much, honed skills I never knew I had, improved what I knew and became more confident in the process! I've still got a lot to learn, but the future is bright and exciting! JP & Yvonne are simply amazing! If you want to learn, hone your craft, meet lovely people and just genuinely have a great time, literally any of these workshops will be for you! Enjoy it and be brilliant! ^.^

I attended the Introductory Workshop with JP back in March 2016. This is such a useful first step for ANYONE considering getting into Voice Over. That session identified both potential, but also areas which needed work. Following on from this, I attended several 1-2-1 sessions with both JP and Mike and gradually got to a place where I was ready to record my demo. JP and Mike are such talented experts, and if you listen to what they have to suggest, and put in the work at home, you can come out of it all with a fantastic sounding VO demo. Thank you so much guys, you have taught me a great deal. Lewis.

Right from the beginning, JP and the team came across as very professional, with a friendly and charming personality. Everyone was put at ease and his relaxed style helped the session to run smoothly whilst also being incredibly fun. There was a lot of information to absorb and the follow-up feedback was useful when deciding to move forward with further workshops etc. A thoroughly enjoyable introduction.
