Private Voice Acting Teacher

I teach all kinds of acting, and have for over 40 years, but I specialize in stage acting, on-camera acting, acting for the face, voice acting, comedic acting, physical acting, improv, script analysis, monologues, audition prep, audition videos and voice over auditions.

For Voice Acting, we'll cover the various elements including: pitch; loudness; speed; rhythm; tone; prosody; variables and variations; character elements; use of dramatic and comedic pauses; emotion; enunciation; emphasis; pace; intervals; nasal continuents; u-glide; musicality; timing, and more.

We'll study mic technique, what to do and what to avoid. We'll study how to prepare your script, including identifying and using key words, and script shorthand. We'll explore what to expect in the studio, how to work with a producer, how to work with a sound engineer, and how to work with other voice actors.

We'll apply the elements of Voice Acting to the study of voice artistry, video game voiceovers, commercial ...

Dennis has been a mentor and friend now for nearly 20 years. He is a knowledgeable and passionate advocate for the arts who gives his all to each student. Working with him is always challenging and fun.
Elizabeth
Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem.
Christine
Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis.

The first lesson went great and though there was a lot to learn, she explained everything and was clear about her expectations.
Hanna
Ilana is my first instructor, and I can already tell I made the right choice. First lesson, I told her what I felt my biggest weaknesses are, and she immediately began helping me. She was very considerate and emphasized her concern about pushing me too far, but I told her to trust me in return to tell her if I had hit a limit, and I felt very heard in that moment. The sort of open and safe communication she has provided makes me feel at ease during our lessons and thus makes it easier for me to push past any limits I've so far come across. Honestly after each lesson, whenever anything happens in my newly found VA world, the first thing I think is: "I can't wait to tell Ilana!"
Alex and Alahna
Ilana was very informative, friendly, and helpful. It's hard to find someone that truly has these qualities, but Ilana has them and is great. She was very informative on breath control which is a major thing to know. Looking forward to more lessons with Ilana and to continue improving.

Michael
Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

Wow! Amazing instructor! Gave me great advice that instantly improved the way I did my current scripts. Also, gave me a lot of industry advice on how to make a good demo reel.

I've been with Stephanie for a few months now and she has helped me so much! I remember being so nervous before our first class, but she is very patient and one of the least intimidating people I've ever met. You'll learn from the very best if you take lessons from her, and she'll get you on the right track to start landing auditions!

"It really is more (Voice Acting) Script interpretation, and Diction; how to pronounce words in a script or paragraph, correctly. Fawn didn't waste any time, I was concerned about my Skype audio, no problem, and after a little wrangling, I figured out how to send her an audio file, and script I wanted her to look over.
She made notes, gave me suggestions, made comments on what I sent her, I'll do my home work; because I want to improve,and we'll do it again next week; same time time, same station... Sorry couldn't help that! She's the kind of coach I need right now!"

Introduction to Voice Acting: Books & Resources to Check Out

When it comes to the performing arts, voice acting attracts some of the most fiercely dedicated enthusiasts, despite the relative anonymity compared to acting on stage or on screen. In the old days, radio dramas were the most common inspiration for aspiring voice actors. Today, it’s animation. The key component of voice acting, even more than secrecy and seclusion, is versatility. An in-demand voice actor may be called upon to provide the pipes for a cartoon rabbit in a kid's show on Friday, …
