Then, we'll cover the recording software. Best of all, it's free! You'll learn how to use it in this module.

Module 5: Running Your Business
Learn how to organize your business here. We discuss business entities, record keeping, your company name and logo, websites, talent agents and how you get paid.

Module 7: Free Voice Review!
Once you've completed the course, I offer you a free voice review! You'll receive scripts to record. Once you record them and send them to me, I will give you feedback on your delivery, script reading and interpretation skills and also give you descriptors of your voice. It's like a free coaching session!
PLUS, You'll be invited to our Facebook Group! A great community where you can ask questions, share accomplishments, ask for feedback on demos and learn about audition opportunities.
