About This Workshop:

Over his 15 years in the VO biz, JP Karliak has studied with a number of pros and learned on the job from the best of the best, cherry picking the tidbits and tactics along the way that have helped him succeed in his career. This class is an amalgamation of all those helpful nuggets, spun into an organized curriculum covering:

  • exploring your vocal range
  • building a toolbox of voices
  • breathing life into characters
  • breaking down a script
  • vocally painting the details of the surrounding world

This four week course combines lecture with exercises and copy work to help solidify concepts. This is a class suitable for beginners starting out or pros looking for a different perspective.
