Back when “Daydream Believer” was playing on every scratchy-sounding car radio, my parents gave me the songbook of The Monkees Greatest Hits and an upright piano to go along with it.

They also hired a piano teacher with bad breath and a penchant for digging a pencil into my finger every time I hit a wrong note.

Ever have that happen to you?

I tried to practice– honest I did, and fantasized about taking my lessons in a gas mask.

I stuck around long enough to learn the notes in the treble clef and then gave it all up for Girl Scouts and the guitar.

So listen, I understand if the thought of practicing your voice over skills makes your eyes glaze over– maybe we had the same piano teacher.

But you must practice consistently, even for a mere 10 minutes a day, if you want to develop your voice over chops and get anywhere in this business.

Now here’s the thing.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to practice voice over. Like learning an instrument, doing it wrong can set you up for a lifetime of bad habits.

So in this week’s Inside Voice Over video training blog, I’ve got some very practical exercises you can do starting today that will really help you develop your skillset.
