A seminar is an open class that is run by a voice acting instructor and attended by voice actors who want to improve particular skills, such as character voice acting, for example. These seminars are often followed by a question and answers period. The environment is often more casual and freespirited than a private lesson and enables you to network with people within your field, perhaps even meet colleagues who will become your friends. Let discuss learning in groups and how it can be both fun and cost-effective.


In this feature, we’ll look at voice acting seminars!

Voice Acting Seminars and Teleclasses / Teleseminars

Usually there is a cost for participating in a voice acting seminar to pay for the instructors time and for the cost of the venue. These fees can vary, but expect that in most cases, there will be a fee for the seminar. Teleseminars, or teleclasses, are taught over the telephone. When attending a teleseminar, all you need to do is dial in to the phone number that your instructor will provide you with, and enter the class number for your specific class. Be sure that you do this on the date and at the time that your class is scheduled for.

There may be special code that you’ll need to dial after calling in to be routed to the right teleclass, similar to how you would check the numbers on the door if you’re looking for a classroom in a building. Once you’re in on the call, the instructor will greet everyone, introduce the program, start teaching, and then have question and answers period. Bear in mind that there may be a fee associated with a teleclass or teleseminar.

If you have attended any seminars for voice acting, I’m inviting you to let us know how the seminar worked out for you and what the golden nuggets were that you gained from the learning experience. How did you find the group learning sessions?
Best wishes,
Stephanie

  1. I would like information about upcoming seminars, especially those geared to entering the voice acting profession. I took one intro seminar with Voices For All. I am interested in pursuing a voice acting career and am gathering information about companies involved in the industry- help with getting started, support and direction, demo tapes, and finding a company that is easy to work with.
