Class Description

Okay, you've studied the character description, audition sides, tone of the scene, and you've chosen a voice. But why isn't it “clicking?” Sometimes, in order to truly find a character, you need to FIND THE FUN! This prolific voice performer calls upon decades of experience as well as a Master's in Psychology to help each student find ways to access real, personal connection, inspiring the joy that makes a role “fun” for you. This is a slightly smaller-sized class in order to allow participants more time to dive deeper into their own process (one character per class day) and support other students as they work through their own material. Julie offers a 30-minute Q&A after each class (attendance optional).

By attending a class through a Talent Training and Counseling Service, you further understand that the intent of the class is solely educational.
