Education: On-Camera & Voice-Over Coaches
Private coaching is available by appointment for a fee $125 per hour. Sessions are conducted in a professional studio and you are welcome to work with a large selection of scripts or bring your own material you wish to work on. All audio recorded is transfered to your USB thumb drive for later review at your convenience. You will work with an engineer, learn proper microphone technique, studio etiquette, break down and analyze copy as well as gain insight on what is required to be successful in the voiceover industry. Scott also teaches one day groups classes.
