Studying with Charles Michel has been nothing but a positive and rewarding experience in my pursuit to a career in voiceover.
Charles has been in the business for 30 years so he knows the business as well as any. In my experience with him he finds your strengths and uses them to your advantage through his many techniques.
One other positive asset Charles has to offer is that he works around your schedule. Whether you have an audition to attend to, take the kids to soccer practice, or you have to be in London for a business trip, Charles works around your schedule to find time for you to work with him, and in addition to that Charles provides a recorded session for each class you have with him so you can listen to your takes yourself.
I had a positive learning experience with Charles and would recomend him to anyone who wants to learn technique as well as the business.
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

Most people work hard at never appearing foolish. They avoid being “too” animated, energized, opinionated, eccentric, etc. From the onset of puberty when teenage peer pressure compels people to be “cool” and fit in, most folks live in dire fear of being laughed at, which is probably the largest obstacle in getting the winning voice… Because it blocks free exspression. Intellectually, you probably already know that if “they” laugh at you, you will not suddenly drop dead. However, you need to start to believe this at an emotional level as well. Laughter is not life threatening! So, the quickest way to get over the fear of others laughing at you is to make sure that they do!
