Rod's Voice Over Training Courses & Voice Showreels are ideal for people of all ages who want to make a career change, full or part time. Whatever the economical environment, good voice over artists will always be in demand. Remember when booking a voice over course, always make sure you hear the company's voice showreel examples. Not all voice over training companies are happy to do so. However you can hear a full range of voice over showreels from people we've trained on voice-over-courses.com.

If you want to make a booking please remember that Rod needs to talk to you first - no exceptions. Someone very wise once said "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach!" Not wishing to fall into the pit of only 'teaching' and not 'doing' Rod remains very active in the voicing, producing, and jingles market. Consequently he can produce, at most, only 1 client a per week. Places are limited.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAY

 

(since recording this video with Rod, Judi has had super success with a contract for a major classic story read)
 
 

"The two day voice over training course I did with Rod was hugely enjoyable.  I came away exhausted at the end of the each day; my head buzzing with all the possibilities I could see before me, and my body exhausted after having tested my vocal abilities to the max.
Rodís relaxed and friendly approach means I felt at total ease and was able to embrace everything he threw at me.  Because the course is one to one, there is none of the intimidation that can sometimes be felt in group sessions.   This was really important as it meant I got 100% from Rod and I gave 100% back.
Rods wealth of knowledge really shows.  He knows just how to guide and direct, as well as stretching you when needed, getting the very best out of you in the process. This is no exercise in flattery; you have to earn your stripes!
I am so glad I did this course, it has already opened up a whole new future for me in voice over and radio work, and I am very excited about the future. Thanks Rod".

Gabrielle Baker (Kent)
 

  "I had no idea what to expect when I turned up for my 1-2-1 dayís voiceover session. It was a fantastic experience and Rod provided me with a solid, honest and detailed appraisal of my voice and what styles of reading my voice would suit. I really enjoyed trying out the scripts Rod had prepared and the professional coaching he gave me has left me filled with enthusiasm and tips I wonít ever forget. Rodís coaching provides great value for money as I simply canít believe you would get the same attention and focus in a group session as you do with Rod. Thanks a million!Ē

Voice-overs can open up a world full of possibilities. From radio adverts to television documentaries, from CD ROMs to computer games, from cartoons to telephone on-hold services. The list is virtually endless.
