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.

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
(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
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".
"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

Remember being a voice over artist is a trade that attracts all kinds of people. A large proportion of voice over artists are trained actors, but it is by no means a requirement. A pleasant voice, versatility and the ability to understand direction from a producer and respond accordingly are the most important requirements.
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.
That's not to say that, should you choose to be a voice-over artist, you are guaranteed a huge income and a showbiz lifestyle. It is the same as any other performing art, some
people are hugely successful and others are not.
