New to voice over? Learn how to get started in this Fab voice over training workshop

Get the best voice over training to help you get started. Learn the skills needed to succeed without wasting your time & money in a professional working voice over studio with our Intro to Voice Over Workshop.

This workshop is the perfect way to get on the voice ladder and understand the skills needed to build a career in voice acting. The last 30 years training new emerging voices has taught us that no classroom-based workshop, book or online voice acting 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 acting 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 an established working voice over producer. We 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 this voice acting training workshop is definitely for you.

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

Everyone needs to be heard and you’ll never know what you could achieve unless you take that first step.

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.

The Intro Workshop with JP was excellent. I got what I wanted out of the workshop, which was to assess whether voice over work would be something I might enjoy doing, and to get a realistic evaluation of my skills. The group size was just right too. We got a good wide-ranging overview of the voice over industry, which gave us good jumping off points for further investigation. JP was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, and made us feel at ease very quickly. Highly recommended.

My Intro to Voice Over Workshop at The Showreel was an eye-opener, in every positive way. JP took us on a Cook’s tour of the voice-over world, urging us to view it realistically, then gave us our first script. Amazing how many differing deliveries of it the group produced! Amazing too to hear my own recording and to get JP’s guidance on how to improve it. The second attempt was better. More scripts in the afternoon and more improvement, with lots more good advice. Throughout, JP was friendly, witty, idiosyncratic and interesting, and treated us all as if we had a possible career ahead of us. JP’s appraisal of my efforts arrived within 24 hours – frank, realistic, positive and very helpful. An excellent workshop! I really feel I have taken my first step on the road to voice-over. Thank you, The Showreel. Thank you, JP.
