Rhonda has been a full-time voice actor for over 15 years. She has a successful voiceover career as well as coaches new students to help them achieve their voiceover goals. rhondasvoice.com
She first began teaching her Introduction to Voiceover course at Western Colorado Community College. She has since developed the course for online consumption. Why? Because anyone getting started in voice acting needs to have the proper tools in their toolbox before jumping into uncharted waters.
Who loves to teach, help animals and volunteer? Rhonda does! Whether it’s teaching voiceover, public speaking or art, teaching is in her blood. She’s an Art Heritage volunteer at a local elementary school and also is a big supporter of rescue pet organizations. As a matter of fact, sometimes she’s also a pet foster mom! You never know what critters you may see in her office. Oh, and did you notice her pink hair? It’s to support breast cancer survivors around the globe.
When it comes to a teacher, you want someone who understands the frustration that can come with starting a new business. We’ve all walked a mile in new shoes. Changing careers or starting a new career isn’t easy. Rhonda is here to guide you through the beginning stages of your voiceover exploration. So, if you’re interested in knowing more about what it takes to make voiceover your new career, you are in the right place.
Coming Soon: A 3-hour online webinar that is designed for individuals who have an interest in voiceover as a career. It will arm you with the knowledge you’ll need to make an educated decision about training to become a professional voice actor. How do you start a part-time or full-time career? What kinds of training will you need? Where do you find jobs? Do you need an agent? Can you make a living doing voiceover? If you have questions about entering the wonderful world of voiceover, Rhonda can help answer them.
During this live webinar, taken in 2-hour modules, you’ll hear honest conversation about the voiceover industry and where your voice may fit in to the big picture. Rhonda will cover several aspects of starting your own home-based voiceover business. She’s all about teaching you the ‘business of the business’.
Everyone tells me I have a great voice, so this should be easy, right? I love that people love your voice. But just because you have a great voice isn’t a guarantee that you’ll be a great voice actor. Think about it this way. Just because I have a nice camera doesn’t make me a professional photographer. Or just because I have a high-quality stove doesn’t mean I’m a chef. However, you can train to become a great voice actor. Yes, yes, you can.
Can I break into the industry within a few months? Well, no one really “breaks into” the industry. You’ll have to work hard and earn your way through with your amazing talent behind the mic and your up-to-date business and marketing skills.
How long will it take before I can start earning money? It’s different for everyone. You’ll have to run your own race here.
Can’t I just produce my own demo to get started? It can’t be that hard, right? Wrong. A professionally produced demo is truly the way to showcase your skill and talent as a voice actor. And, no, producing a great demo isn’t easy. It’s a skill. Plus, a professional demo producer will only produce a demo for you when you’re ready. Being “ready” means that you know exactly what to do when you’re handed a script. Just because you have the cash to have a demo produced doesn’t mean you have the chops quite yet. In Rhonda’s humble opinion, if you have not had any coaching or proper industry training, you’re not ready. Unfortunately, there are some not-so-professional producers out there who will gladly take your money and produce a demo for you today, ready or not! This course will teach you WHY you do not want to make this mistake.
Can I make fast money by working in voiceover? Sorry, folks. Voiceover isn’t the industry for you if this is your plan. While you’re training, you may not want to quit your day job.
