Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Voice and Diction Class


What is it?

The actor’s voice is a diverse and powerful instrument that can be trained through classes to express a wider range of emotion, character and life. From a performance point of view, audience members agree that they are naturally drawn to those voices on stage or in film that resonate out, that are clear and that are versatile. As a general rule most acting schools and conservatories (and now many private studios and one-on-one coaches) choose to put their students through classical voice training to strengthen the actor’s breathing, range and sound.

From this basic understanding of the voice and how it works the actor can then set about cultivating their own unique vocal styling and sound. This technique will become invaluable when it comes time to start creating characters by varying the rhythm, intonation and melody of the natural voice in a realistic, sincere and connected way.

What are the benefits and for whom is it necessary

Quite simply…everyone! A voice and diction class will help not only actors but also singers, musicians, debaters and public speakers of all kinds. Voice classes can start when you are still a child (generally it is thought amongst professionals that 12 is a good age to start) or can be picked up later on as an adult. An important point to keep in mind is that voice classes should be considered in the same way that an athlete thinks of daily exercise, something that needs to be done daily to strengthen and build the elasticity of the muscles that contribute towards vocal production. Classes will provide you with tools that you can do by yourself as a part of your daily regime and will also teach you a series of exercises that will help you warm up for a performance. Vocal warm-ups are one of the most important parts of an actor’s pre-show routine. If you do not learn how to properly warm up and use your voice in performance you will end up using it incorrectly and risk ruining it forever. A voice and diction class can make such a difference to your vocal quality and clarity of diction that it will showcase your skills and make your talent stand out for all the right reasons.


A voice and diction class is especially important in voice acting jobs!
