This comprehensive Voice-Over workshop is led by Grammy winning producer and engineer, Matt Still.In this 6-week class, Kids or Teens will learn:

• Microphone technique
• Enunciation and delivery (bring it off the page-deliver in ideas)
• Reading with inflection to sound natural and conversational
• Pacing and how to approach the different styles of commercials

SURVEY RESPONSE!
Both of my daughters have participated in yourACT classes over the last five years. Every class has been beneficial and reasonably priced, but the outstanding thing about yourACT is the feeling of ‘family’ you sense when you walk in the door. Bob, Della and the staff all really care about their students, both personally and professionally. At yourACT, you get the tools to get started and to grow as an actor, plus caring instructors to cheer you along! You just don’t get that everywhere.”
Angela, Meagan and Given Sharp
“I have been working with Bob and Della for many years now. When I sign actors from yourACT, I know they will be well trained, professional, bookable actors. yourACT has very knowledgeable, caring instructors that teach each actor individually. They give personal attention to their actors, which is very important. My actors tell me all the time how much they love going to classes there! From the beginner to the seasoned actor, I highly recommend yourACT as a part of the actor’s journey.” [On a personal note: Bob and Della are the coolest couple I know! They are well known and respected in this industry, that includes respect from me!]Gerra Avery, Co-Owner, Avery Sisters Entertainment
