"Beau, have you ever used Cubase, and, if so, what is your opinion of it as an audio record and edit app?"

Thanks. I would love to work with you. Take a listen to my demos which are on my page in VU. I would also like to expand my range into some dialects at some point. I'd love your feedback on how best to accomplish that.

But, more than…"

"Wow, Lisa. That VoiceLympics Voice Over Cruise sure looks amazing. Might not work for me this time around. But, it's still tempting.

"Hey, Lisa. Hope this link works. It consists of my demo and a promo track that I did for this concert series I mentioned.

Let me know if this does not work, and I'll go to Plan B (whatever that is...)

"Great, Penny. Thanks. And, of course, I have James' book "The Art of Voice Acting". It was one of the first books I read on vo.

And, I do remember that exercise now that you mention it. I will definitely use it tonight. I have a live announcing gig…"

Can you recommend some good exercises to get the mouth and jaw - not to mention vocal folds - loosened up before an audition or a recording session in your home studio?

Thanks much,

"Penny, thanks for the nice welcome. James' book, The Art of Voice Acting, was one of the first I read when I started studying this trade. I feel like I'm close to a break, and it's pretty exciting. If you have any suggestions for seminars or…"

  • Hi again Steve. I have listened to your demos and the thing that I enable actors to do is add a lot of different voices to their repertoire. It can be with pitch, texture, face and body gestures, tricks and accents or dialects. Here are some links you can check out if you're interested and I wish you all the best!!

  • Hi Steve,
    HI Elisa first off I want to welcome you and wish you all the best. I cast talent for computer games which requires a lot of vocal diversity. Are you interested in expanding your character base? I can always use diverse voices and especially those who can act and do dialects, which I can teach you more of instantly. I blow people away with how easy I make it. I cast, direct and act for more video games than anyone in the world. I'm about to launch a quick series of classes and coaching. Not trying to sell you as I hardly make anything,. I'm one of the best coaches who gives you tools and tricks that work instantly and you might have fun expanding your horizons. Up to you. Please don't think I'm trying to sell you classes...I don't teach for a living but have a wonderful talent pool that I keep busy.
    I'll be posting the link soon this weekend on the coaching page and to my VU friends. I can even take a listen to your demo or help give you ideas to make it more marketable. I've been in this business for way too long LOL
    Stay super!
  • Welcome! That's all good news. Can you send me a link to your demo? It didn't work when you last wrote me. I'll send you a regular e-mail soon.
  • Can I recommend an exercise? Just the very best one I've ever found!! It's the Cork Exercise.

    If you have James Alburger's book, The Art of Voice Acting (3rd edition, page 46), it's described in detail as a wonderful way to warm up your "instrument." If you don't have the book - I definitely suggest you get it, but in the meantime - here's the exercise in a nutshell.

    Get a cork from a wine bottle and place the cork between your teeth (I'd suggest saving the wine for later!). With the cork between your teeth (insert it like a stubby cigar), read some copy out loud V – E – R – Y S – L – O – W – L – Y. Over-enunciate every vowel, consonant and syllable in every word, and make sure you clearly speak the ends of words. Be careful that you don't rush through little words like "a", "in", "the", "if", and so on. You'll find your cheeks, jaw and tongue will start to get tired after just a few minutes – but you'll also notice that after this exercise you will speak much more clearly without sounding forced. I use this exercise by reading traffic signs on my way to the studio. Another of my students keeps his cork on a chain around his neck.

    This is a good one! Use it, and you'll see a tremendous difference in your performance.
